Is there any whitening procedure that I could have that would be effective?

Q. Hi Dr. Glaister A question about teeth whitening – I was given tetracycline as a child when my permanent dentition was developing, and my teeth are now rather stained. Given that the staining appears to be within the tooth – rather than upon the surface of the enamel – is there any whitening procedure that I could have that would be effective? Many thanks

A.

Tooth whitening unfortunately is ineffective on tetracycline staining. The only thing you can so to change the colour of your teeth would be to Veneers them. Case 14 in my portfolio http://www.umbrellasmiles.com/portfolio.html is veneers placed for tetracycline staining.

Kind regards
