First impressions count. Bright white teeth are something that people – whether friends, family or work colleagues – always tend to notice and a dazzling smile could really help to boost your confidence and self esteem. Whether it’s age, staining due to lifestyle or food habits, or simple discolouration, there are many reasons that people opt for Professional Teeth Whitening to help get the shine back into their smile.
Seeking advice from, and the expertise of, an experienced dental practitioner is the best way to achieve optimum results and ensure your teeth whitening treatment is safe and effective.
Firstly, our dentists will talk you through the process of Professional Teeth Whitening. To ensure you receive the best treatment possible, it’s always good to give us as much information as you can regarding:
- Your teeth or gum sensitivity
- Full medical history including any current medication
- Daily habits such as coffee and red wine consumption and whether you’re a smoker
- Previous dental treatments eg: fillings, crowns, veneers etc.
There are two main options available for Professional Teeth Whitening –
1. At the dentist / In Chair Teeth Whitening
A full procedure which generally starts with full scale and clean to completely remove any plaque or light surface staining. Professional bleaching is the most common form of teeth whitening, using hydrogen peroxide as the active ingredient in treatments. As this is broken down, oxygen gets into the enamel on the teeth and makes them lighter.
2. Teeth Whitening At Home
Some people prefer to opt for Professional Teeth Whitening at home where we will provide custom fitted trays, which enable you to carry out the procedure and whiten your teeth at home. You’ll purchase gels separately and be taught by our dentists how to accurately time yourself and care for the equipment provided.
Professional Teeth Whitening can have exceptional results – however we also need your input. Ongoing good oral hygiene is essential to maintain brightness of teeth and keep your smile healthy.
We want you to tell us what you want to achieve from your Professional Teeth Whitening. Individual goals are always talked over with our clients to ensure that we can help you achieve your desired outcome.
