Over the course of life, staining and discolouration of your teeth can affect the way you feel about your smile. Staining may occur due to many different reasons including smoking, food and drinks such as tea, coffee, cola and wine. Poor dental hygiene, dental issues and diseases can also lead to discolouration of the teeth. Ageing and genetics are also a natural cause of staining too. Tooth whitening at your dentist is an effective way of lightening the natural colour of your teeth and enhancing your smile. There are different treatment methods for teeth whitening, either professionally carried out at the dentist or home kits provided by the dentist which are worn overnight and work while you are sleeping. Speak to our dentist in Marylebone to find out which method of teeth whitening may be more suitable for you.
White fillings are becoming increasingly popular amongst adults. In comparison to amalgam or gold fillings, white fillings are designed to be subtle, as they blend in with your surrounding teeth and provide a natural look as they are almost invisible. White fillings provide more support and stability as they are chemically bonded to your teeth and they have been found to require less of your teeth to be cut out when removing tooth decay, ultimately preserving the integrity of your original tooth. They are metal free and therefore they are not sensitive to changes in temperature or other factors in your mouth, preventing further damage to your teeth. White fillings can also be moulded to support and repair other damage in the teeth such as cracks, which helps strengthen the tooth further. Speak to our dentist in Marylebone to find out why white fillings may be an attractive treatment method for you.
It may be a good idea to contact us at Plowman & Partners to find out how veneers can be used to help protect your teeth and to improve the aesthetics of your mouth.

Veneers are used in the treatment of chips and cracks of the teeth, gaps between the teeth, issues with the enamel, misalignment and teeth staining. In case of a chipped or cracked tooth, you may only need one veneer or if you are unhappy with the aesthetics of your mouth you may decide to have a set of veneers to help transform your smile completely.
