Tooth discolouration occurs for a variety of reasons and makes you self-conscious about your smile. Whether due to age, consuming pigmented food and drinks, smoking, medications, or other dental work, tooth discolouration can occur over time, forcing you to hide your smile when you laugh and talk.

At Dental Spot, our talented team can restore your beautiful smile and your confidence using a cosmetic dentistry treatment like dental veneers. Learn more about how to fix discoloured teeth and achieve a brighter, whiter smile.  


How to Fix Discoloured Teeth With Dental Veneers?  

Dental veneers are an excellent cosmetic solution for instantly improving your smile, especially if you have intrinsic stains, like those from medication or deep amalgam fillings that cannot be whitened with a teeth whitening treatment. Dental veneers also mask several flaws at once and are commonly used on the social six front teeth to disguise a minor gap, worn, short, crooked or discoloured teeth. 

We use porcelain dental veneers at Dental Spot because they are stain-resistant and durable. We colour match your dental veneers to the rest of your smile, and they are shaped and sized to blend in seamlessly. 

While dental veneers are a popular choice for treating tooth discolouration, they are an irreversible solution because your dentist shaves a small amount of enamel from your teeth to accommodate the dental veneers


How to Fix Discoloured Teeth With Professional Teeth Whitening?

A professional teeth whitening treatment performed by your dentist can dramatically transform your smile in less than an hour. Teeth whitening treatments can remove superficial (extrinsic) stains from the surface of your teeth. Teeth whitening does not work on restorations and typically cannot brighten teeth with intrinsic stains. 

options how to fix discoloured teeth croydonAfter cleaning your teeth and prepping your mouth to protect your gums and soft tissues, your dentist paints a high-strength whitening agent on your teeth. After 15 minutes, it is rinsed off and repeated twice more to help you achieve your desired level of brightness which is several shades lighter. 

Because your teeth are porous, they can stain again, so try to limit your consumption of dark foods and drinks. Our take-home kit is ideal for making touch-ups if tooth discolouration occurs. 

If you prefer to whiten your teeth in the convenience of your own home, we also offer a take-home kit that uses a dentist-supervised whitening gel and custom whitening trays. The whitening agent is stronger than over-the-counter whitening products but not as potent as the in-chair option, so it takes about 14 days for you to see noticeable results. 

You will have an appointment to take an impression of your mouth to fabricate your whitening trays. Your dentist provides you with instructions on using the gel and how long you should wear your whitening trays. You can choose to wear them for a few hours a day or overnight while you sleep.    


How to Fix Discoloured Teeth With a Dental Crown?

A dental crown is ideal for fixing a discoloured tooth, especially if it is toward the front of your mouth and you have a big smile. If, for example, you had a lot of dental work performed on a tooth or intrinsic stains from antibiotics, you may want to mask the colour. A dental crown is a cap that is placed over your entire tooth structure to restore its appearance and function. 

At Dental Spot, we have an on-site lab so that we can fit you with a customised dental crown in just one visit. We match your dental crown to the rest of your natural teeth, so if you also have teeth whitening treatment, we suggest you have it performed first.


How to Fix Discoloured Teeth With Dental Bonding?

Dental bonding is a non-invasive and quick solution for whitening an area on the tooth’s surface. The surface of your tooth is prepped so the composite resin can adhere to the surface. Your dentist paints it onto your tooth before shaping it and then curing it with a UV light. It is then polished so it matches the rest of your tooth. 


How to Fix Discoloured Teeth With Tooth-Coloured Fillings

Old or deep amalgam fillings can sometimes be visible from the outside of a tooth, making it appear grey. An easy solution for this type of tooth discolouration is to replace your silver fillings with tooth-coloured composite resin to eliminate the stain and enhance your smile.
