Yellow or unclean teeth are not easy to hide. Unless you strive to keep your mouth closed or laugh in an unnatural way, most people will be able to see the discoloured state of your teeth or soiled and damaged enamel, whether they are looking or not. Not only is there an aesthetic component of having unclean teeth, but teeth that require professional cleaning can also eventually cause bleeding gums and bad breath.
Two things that none of us want.
As a result of yellow or unclean teeth, you can easily become self-conscious, insecure, and even depressed, but here at Stanley Street Dental, we are confident that when it comes to dental treatments that will brighten your smile and restore your confidence, you will be afforded the best and highest level of care in the Collingwood, Abbotford and Fitzroy areas.

If you’re wondering what professional teeth cleaning can actually provide, then let us here at Stanley Street Dental run you through the benefits.
1. Prevent cavities
The whitish and mostly unpleasant film that builds up on your teeth is called plaque and as well as appearing a little off-putting, it is also the leading cause of tooth decay. This acidic substance eats away at the tooth enamel and, if left unattended or if you decide not to get your teeth professionally cleaned regularly, it can lead to cavities. Plaque can be removed by brushing or flossing to an extent, but a professional clean by our team here at Stanley Street Dental will ensure your overall oral health.
2. Prevent nasty Tooth Decay or even Loss
Gum disease, which starts with built-up plaque, is a major cause of tooth loss in adults. As gum disease advances, plaque moves further down the tooth where it can destroy the supporting bone in your jaw, causing teeth to loosen and fall out. Scary stuff. Luckily, the chance of this happening to you can be greatly reduced through regular dental cleanings here at Stanley Street Dental, combined of course, with good oral hygiene habits.
3. Brightens your smile
At Stanley Street Dental, we are all about a holistic approach to your oral health. We know that many like to indulge from time to time, or have certain daily habits that can affect your teeth, and as such, it should come as no surprise that drinking coffee, tea and wine or using tobacco can stain your pearly whites. That’s why we recommend regular professional teeth cleaning, as it can remove built-up stains and leave you with freshly polished teeth. The result? A whiter, brighter smile!
4. Freshen your breath
Good oral hygiene is the best way to prevent persistent bad breath. Even if you brush and floss regularly, booking a professional tooth clean here at Stanley Street Dental is a great way to keep your mouth healthy and odour-free.
5. Boost your overall health
Again, and with a focus on a holistic approach, the team at Stanley Street Dental promote healthy lifestyle choices as part of maintaining a healthy oral cavity. Studies have shown, in fact, that a connection between oral and overall health with the use of regular dental cleanings, may help lower your risk for some diseases, like heart disease and stroke. As an interesting side note, many medical conditions can often be detected in their early stages by your dentist during a routine oral exam. How about that!
6. Save money in the long run
At Stanley Street Dental, we want you to have a healthy smile, healthy gums, and strong and impressive teeth for as long as possible. So although it may seem like a luxury or something that is often ignored, having your teeth professionally cleaned at least once every six months will keep you on that path.
