An Air Polish is a simple hygiene treatment that effectively removes stains on the teeth and discolouration while thoroughly removing dental plaque. This innovative technique removes plaque and staining, often caused by drinking red wine, tea/coffee and smoking, to restore a natural smile.
It’s faster, easier and less invasive than alternative methods of deep teeth cleaning. Air polish is perfect if you’re after a brighter smile. Though it can’t improve the base colour of your teeth, our patients notice a definite difference after their treatment and nothing beats that lovely clean feeling! Treatment can be carried out regularly and is suitable for both adults and children.
How does an Air Polish work?
This innovative brightening technique gently cleans and polishes the teeth using non-abrasive technology. Air polishing works by using a fine jet of compressed air, water and fine powder particles to remove staining caused by coffee, tea, red wine and more. Not only does it remove even serious staining, it can help remove heavy plaque build up. For some patients, an Air Polish is most effective when it follows a routine scale and polish.
Your Air Polish treatment can even be a fresh flavoured experience. The powders come in a variety of flavours such as mint and cherry and is much more pleasant and less gritty than the heavy paste used in traditional polishing.
