Today, tooth whitening is a safe and extremely popular way to enhance your smile and boost your overall confidence by making teeth look whiter and healthier.
Teeth can naturally become discoloured over time from food and drink. Typical culprits of discolouration include drinks such as tea, coffee and red wine and foods such as blueberries, blackberries, and pomegranates.
Tooth whitening can be provided safely by your dental practice without damaging or removing the surface of the tooth.
This provided in the form of a tray-based teeth whitener which involves the use of a personalised mouth guard and a gel-based whitening solution. The tray is applied to your teeth overnight for up to two weeks.
The process works by taking the tooth back to its natural colours. The tooth then rebuilds.
The teeth whitening gel will not damage or harm your tooth enamel.
Choosing whitening from an authorised Dentist ensure the safe administration of the whitening solution, without causing harm to your teeth or gums.
One-off whitening procedures are often too harsh on the teeth and can cause damage.
High percentages of hydrogen peroxide can damage the tooths enamel and can also cause chemical burning and gum disease. The EU limit is 0.1% hydrogen peroxide, which can increase to 6% for kits provided by Dentists.
Your dentist will take an impression of your teeth, which will then be turned into moulds. The plastic trays will then be made from these moulds to get an exact fit. The trays will then be fitted and refined to ensure comfort.
Your dentist will demonstrate the whitening procedure when handing the kit over and provide you with all of the information needed to get the best results:
Do not brush your teeth for at least 1 hour after taking the trays out!
Do not use hot/warm water as this will distort the trays.
For best results:
You may experience sensitivity during the whitening treatment, if this occurs apply sensitive toothpaste into the trays, instead of whitening gel, for one night.
If you regularly suffer from sensitive teeth your dentist may recommend against any whitening treatments but will be able to discuss other options with you.
If you are concerned about sensitivity, contact us 01709 917666.
Yes, the teeth whitening procedure supplied by dentists is both safe and has the best results.
Whilst the whitening isn’t permanent, it can last for up to 3 years.
After the initial 2 week treatment, you will have some gel left to use as a top up. The gel can be stored in the fridge for up to 1 year.
The cost of tooth whitening at Green Square Dental starts from £199.
Give us a call on 01709 917 666 and we’ll treat you to a simple smile boost or a complete mouth makeover.
Remember – for the safest, most effective results, you should only see a dental professional for tooth whitening treatment.
