As we get older our teeth naturally become darker. Teeth can be easily stained through the food we eat, or by drinking a lot of tea and coffee. Lifestyle choices such as smoking, drinking a lot of red wine or allowing a build-up of tartar and calculus through poor oral hygiene, all can contribute to changing the natural colour of your teeth.
At Lodwig Villa we can brighten and lighten teeth that have lost their natural colour with professional tooth whitening. The active whitening ingredient used is carbamide peroxide. As this is applied to your teeth, oxygen gets into the enamel on the teeth and the colour of the tooth becomes lighter. By varying the type of products used, the treatment can be carried out in one hour in the surgery or you can choose our highly effective home whitening system.
When carried out correctly, the effects of whitening can last for many months or years, but this will vary from person to person. Our dentists will advise you on how to manage your whitening treatment to get optimum results.
