tooth whitening

What factors cause tooth discolouration?

  • Staining (tea, coffee, red wine, tobacco etc)
  • Aging
  • Genetic Abnormalities
  • Hereditary Conditions
  • Drug Administration

The correct diagnosis for the cause of discolouration is vital as tooth whitening will only be effective at treating some of the before mentioned factors.

At Cranmore our highly skilled and experienced dental team are qualified to understand the causes of tooth discolouration. Consequently we are able to make the correct diagnosis in order to provide the appropriate treatment and achieve the optimum results.

Who Is Legally Permitted To Provide Tooth Whitening?

The General Dental Council (GDC) regards tooth whitening as the practice of dentistry and only GDC registrants i.e. Dentists, Hygienists and Dental Therapists are allowed to provide this treatment to ensure patients receive the best and safest treatment.

Anyone else offering teeth whitening (e.g. beauticians, hairdressers and salon staff):

  • Won’t have the requisite training and knowledge
  • Could permanently damage your teeth and gums
  • Can’t help you when something goes wrong; and
  • Are not regulated by the General Dental Council
