Treatment from a Harley Street cosmetic dentist

When you come into our Harley Street clinic for a consultation, the first thing your cosmetic dentist will to is to ascertain the nature of your tooth discolouration. The commonest reason for staining of the teeth is inadequate or ineffectual dental hygiene. If your home brushing routine doesn’t make the grade, plaque will build up on the teeth, leading to unpleasant brown staining.

A dental hygienist can professionally clean your teeth to get rid of all the plaque, and can help you to modify your home routine to help the problem recurring. Good oral hygiene is important not just for aesthetic reasons, but also for the sake of your oral health. Plaque can lead to problems including dental decay, gum disease, and bad breath.

If your teeth are poorly aligned, they can be difficult to keep clean despite your best efforts. Harley Street Dental Clinic offers a number of discreet orthodontic treatments that can improve the alignment of your teeth, and so improve your oral hygiene.

For other common causes of tooth staining, such as smoking or drinking a lot of coffee, teeth whitening is an excellent option. Delivered by a cosmetic dentist this is a safe and rapid way to combat stains.

Permanent discolouration can be improved with porcelain veneers, which are bonded to the front of the teeth to improve their aesthetic appearance. Your cosmetic dentist can also replace metal fillings with tooth-coloured alternatives.
