Airflow stain removal – a great way to remove stains and discolouration

Stained teeth are associated with negative images portrayed by the media. It is true when we see stained and crooked teeth it gives us an image of a villain instead of a hero. The media is constantly reminding us of the importance of bright white teeth.

Airflow stain removal is a simple way to effectively remove surface stains from teeth. The system uses a focused jet of compressed air, water and bicarbonate particles to polish away surface staining from teeth. Common types of stain that require professional removal include tea, coffee and cigarettes, and these are some of the first to be removed during an Airflow stain removal session. Airflow stain removal is also capable of removing stains caused by genetic susceptibility to darker teeth, as well as the more sever stains that can be caused by medicine.

Airflow Stain Removal: The Procedure

The Procedure

Airflow stain removal treatment is completed by our hygienist and takes around 30 minutes. They may combine it with using the ultrasonic scaler to remove any tartar that has built up. The cleaning is completely pain free, so no anaesthetic is required. You will be able to immediately see and feel the difference.


The results you can expect will depend on your diet, smoking and cleaning habits. If you are a big fan of tea, coffee, red wine and curries you can expect the staining to return within a few months. If, however you are not a big fan of these and maintain a good oral hygiene routine between appointments, your teeth can remain stain free for up to a year.
