It's a fact of life that teeth lose their pristine whiteness with the passage of time, even more so if you're a smoker, or drink lots of tea, coffee, or cola drinks. Improving the whiteness of teeth is a great confidence booster, giving you a younger appearance immediately. You might want a whiter smile for a special event, such as a birthday party or wedding, or to feel better about yourself before an important job interview. It's possible to whiten teeth at home, using whitening pens or strips, but for the best and longest lasting result, it's better to use a reputable cosmetic dentist. Many dental surgeries in Leeds offer teeth whitening programmes and the range of great value offers on Groupon can help reduce the costs of the procedures.

Zap the stains with lasers for whiter teeth

If you're looking for centrally located dentists for teeth whitening Leeds has several to offer, such as Clarendons Dental Spa, with its comprehensive range of treatments. Discuss your options with an experienced cosmetic dentist and then decide on the best method of teeth whitening for you. One method is in-chair laser teeth whitening, where a whitening product is carefully applied to teeth, which are then zapped with a laser whitening light. The light combines with the product to penetrate your teeth and break up stains, leaving you with a whiter, brighter smile. Another central Leeds surgery using this laser whitening process is Aspire Radiance.The clinic's location on The Headrow means it is easy to drop in for multiple appointments.

Combine in-chair whitening treatments with home programmes

Other dentists that offer Leeds teeth whitening treatments, such as the Leeds Dental Centre on Waterloo Street, use a combination of in-chair and home-based treatments to give you back a sparkling white smile. A professional programme of home-based teeth whitening is prescribed, with mouth trays custom-made to fit your teeth perfectly. Bleaching gel is applied to the trays, which are worn overnight for a few weeks. A session of in-chair laser whitening is then used to finish the process, and achieve the exact shade you're looking for. If you'd rather just use a home-based process, but don't want to rely on shop-bought products, then Eclipse Dental Care offers a programme of home-based teeth whitening in Leeds with full support and guaranteed results.

Internal bleaching for successful whitening of individual teeth

Sometimes just one or two teeth become discoloured after root canal fillings, standing out in stark contrast to the rest of your mouth. Some dentists, such as the The Hospital Group, which have a clinic on Albion Place in central Leeds, are able to offer individual tooth whitening by internal bleaching. This process involves opening the hole made for your original treatment and filling the tooth with a bleaching product. This is temporarily filled, and the product replaced weekly until the desired colour match is achieved, when the hole is permanently sealed.
