Scale and Polish
A regular scale and polish will keep your teeth and gums clean and healthy. Scaling removes the hard tartar that brushing can’t take off, while polishing removes stains from food and drink.
At Wearside Orthodontic Centre we also offer Airflow Cleaning. Airflow is an advanced hygiene treatment which uses a mixture of air, polishing powder and a gentle stream to remove stains and discolouration from teeth, this removes plaque to restore your naturally white smile.
In some cases we are able to transform misshapen or irregular teeth by using composite materials (white filling) to restore the dentition’s natural shape and colour and improve the overall appearance of your smile.
Teeth darken and yellow with age. Tea, coffee and certain foods all speed up the process. Smoking and other staining agents also contribute to darkening of teeth. Our teeth whitening treatment can transform stained or discoloured teeth, giving you a whiter, brighter smile. We offer two options for teeth whitening.
Boutique Whitening is a premium quality whitening gel that delivers superior results with a noticeable improvement in just a few days, using home whitening kits. Using custom made trays with the whitening gel you wear the trays either overnight or for an hour during the day. This gradual teeth whitening treatment gives fantastic results.
Zoom! In-Practice Whitening
The other option is to have your teeth whitened at the practice. We offer Zoom! teeth whitening which is a quick and effective way to whiten your teeth. The chairside procedure takes just over an hour and teeth can lighten 6 to 10 shades.
