The summer holidays may have come to an abrupt end and with it the warmer weather, but even as the days become colder and the evenings start to draw in, there’s no reason not to keep on smiling – especially if you take advantage of professional teeth whitening. In fact, investing in yourself and taking control of your smile might be just what you need to get back into the routine with a renewed sense of confidence – and it doesn’t need to cost you a fortune either. Read on to discover why now might be the perfect time to get your teeth professionally whitened.
What causes tooth discolouration and staining?
There are many factors that can cause your teeth to become stained, discoloured or faded, many of which are lifestyle-related. Although almost everything we eat and drink can affect the colour of our teeth, some common culprits are particularly problematic. Among these, regularly drinking red wine and coffee, along with smoking or using tobacco products are the worst. It’s important, however, to bear in mind that age can also have an effect. This is due to natural discolouration and thinning of the enamel. Some illnesses and treatments can also have an impact. Remember, just because your teeth are not as white as they once were, this doesn’t mean that you are doing anything wrong – and in most cases, discolouration and staining are completely reversible.
Why don’t most home whitening products work?
When performed under the supervision of a registered dentist such as Dr. Adrian Mullish, teeth whitening is extremely safe. Here at our state of the art practice, we pride ourselves in helping our patients to maintain healthy teeth and attractive smiles. You can trust us to use only carefully selected products that have been clinically proven to be safe and are approved for use, and will also ensure that everything is handled correctly at all times in accordance with strict hygiene rules. With our commitment to exceptional care and gentle treatment, you can also be sure of a comfortable experience that leaves you with the results you desire.
To make sure the procedure is safe, effective and completely painless, your dentist will conduct an examination prior to beginning your treatment to ensure that everything is in order. You’ll also have an opportunity to discuss your expectations in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere before you begin, so that you know exactly what to expect.

How long does teeth whitening take?
With the gentle and effective home whitening system in use here at Adrian Mullish Dental Care, you can typically expect to see a visible improvement in as little as 2-4 weeks. We take impressions of your teeth and you return at a subsequent appointment to collect your specially made trays and gels. Your teeth gradually whiten as you use the whitening trays provided, although the degree and speed of whitening is dependent on factors such as your starting position, diet, age and lifestyle. A final visit takes place in-house to secure the final result.
Once you’ve achieved the smile you desire, we’ll help you to develop a tooth care routine designed to keep your smile sparkling for as long as possible, with a care plan that is tailored to suit your lifestyle.
What if I have stained veneers, crowns or dentures?
Depending on the degree of staining, you may need a thorough clean and polish before you have whitening treatment, to remove any discolouration caused by stains. The colour of fillings, crowns, veneers and dentures is not affected by tooth whitening, so old or dark crowns may need replacing to ensure they match your natural teeth. This is why an initial appointment with a dental professional is imperative before you begin using any tooth whitening products.
