Over time, most adult teeth become discoloured, yellowed or duller. You do not have to smoke, drink coffee or red wine to lose your sparkling smile. When we age so do our teeth, becoming more transparent and developing darker enamel.
In the world of cosmetic dentistry, teeth whitening is perhaps the easiest and most common method to improve the colour of your teeth. At Amsel and Wilkins, we will boost your confidence in your smile with bleaching treatments that are custom-made to fit your individual needs.
What causes yellow teeth?
Tooth enamel is naturally white. Unfortunately, as it is worn down it becomes transparent and starts to show through to the next layer of the tooth underneath. This layer has a naturally yellower tone, so the thinner your tooth enamel becomes, the more yellow your teeth will look. Tooth enamel can become thinner due to a number of reasons and ageing is one of them. This is why people of a certain age tend to have yellow teeth. Other causes include caffeine, red wine, highly-pigmented foods and beverages and certain medications. Yellow teeth can also be the result of genetics.
How can teeth whitening help?
If you already have yellow teeth, teeth whitening is the fastest way to quickly brighten your smile. At Amsel and Wilkins, we offer home whitening which consists of custom-made bleaching trays that patients have to wear with bleaching gel at home for a few hours every day over a period of two weeks or so. This methods is very safe and offers effective results.
If you are a good candidate for teeth bleaching in Banbury, your dentist will discuss the process with you. Professional teeth whitening allows your dentist to choose the right method based on the condition and colouring of your teeth without hurting your enamel.

At Amsel and Wilkins, we appreciate the transformative effects of cosmetic treatments in helping our patients achieve their ideal smile.

Our modern dental techniques and treatments can provide a comfortable dental experience and great results.
What to expect during a cosmetic and face consultation
To get an idea of what you want to achieve with cosmetic dentistry treatments, your dentist will ask you a number of questions about your treatment goals. You may want to consider in advance your least favourite feature about your smile. For instance, do you simply wish to whiten your teeth with teeth whitening, or do you need more extensive treatment, like teeth straightening? Understanding what you expect to achieve with cosmetic dentistry will help your dentist decide which treatments could be ideal for you.
After understanding your concerns and examining your teeth thoroughly, your cosmetic dentist will work with you to create an individual treatment plan. Depending on the state of your teeth and your aesthetic goals, your treatment plan may involve a single procedure or multiple treatments over the course of several appointments. Our aim is to explain as much as possible from the beginning and help you navigate your way through the procedure.
Your consultation appointment will also give you the opportunity to get to know us better. We are happy to answer your questions and give you more information about our dental practice. We will be happy to show you photographs and testimonials, so you see for yourself what kind of results you can expect from our cosmetic treatments.
