Best Home Teeth Whitening Glasgow

Home teeth whiteningHome Teeth Whitening

A lot of people prefer to be able to do their own teeth whitening at their home in Glasgow instead of having a dentist do it because it gives them complete control of their own whitening. If you have been looking for the best home teeth whitening kit then you should come and take a look at what we can offer here at our dental surgery in Glasgow.

We have been providing home teeth whitening kits for a number of years now and can offer a custom made bleaching tray which has been specially designed to fit your teeth and your teeth alone. This is far superior to other teeth whitening kits that will offer a standard bleaching kit that is doesn’t fit your teeth properly.

The whitening gel that we offer is both safe and effective and many of our patients have told us that they’ve had outstanding results as a result of our teeth whitening kit. The added benefit of using our home teeth whitening kit is that once you have run out of whitening gel you will be able to return to us for more, without having to pay out more money for another custom made bleaching tray.

We charge decent prices for our home teeth whitening kit, so all of the benefits mentioned before plus the cost of our kits is what makes them the best available on the current market. The cost will be discussed with you before there are arrangements for your custom made bleaching tray to be made.

We would be more than happy to discuss our Home Teeth Whitening kit in greater depth, all you have to do is give us a call on 0141 237 2080 and we’ll arrange for you to come into our dental surgery in Glasgow to speak to one of our dentists about this treatment and you’ll see that it’s possibly the very best Home Teeth Whitening available.

Common Myths in Dentistry!

Read on to discover the truth behind popular dental myths..dentist glasgow

 

  •  The Dentist does not have time for nervous patients like me
    Whether you’re slightly apprehensive or extremely anxious about visiting the dentist, we are trained to deal with every patient.  We see nervous patients every day and we are completely understanding. It is our job to make sure you feel comfortable. We would prefer knowing at your first visit that you feel nervous so we can help. Please don’t keep it to yourself thinking that you’d be making our job harder for us. Listening to music is good for relaxing and we’re happy if you want to bring in earphones and listen to music on your phone/ipod etc. Treatment will be carried out at your pace. We welcome all patients to our 1Smile Clinics and also offer sedation for those who need it.

 

  • As long as my teeth seem fine and are not giving me any pain I don’t need to bother with a regular check-up

Attending regularly is vital to maintain good oral health. We recommend a check-up every 6 months to keep on top of any treatment you have had previously and to monitor the condition of your teeth, gums and oral tissues in your mouth. Catching decay and gum problems early on makes treating them a lot easie! It also reduced the chances of needing root treatment and extractions. In Scotland, everyone is entitled to 2 FREE check up’s on the NHS every year.

 

  • Having your teeth whitened is harmful

Having teeth professionally whitened by a qualified dentist is safe. If this caused great harm then we would not be allowed to do it. As long as instructions are carefully followed then there is no harm in whitening teeth. However, please be aware that professional tooth whitening means having a dentist whiten teeth. Beware beauticians and salons offering any type of tooth whitening. This is well known in the dental world to cause problems. It is the view of the General Dental Council (GDC) that ‘applying materials and carrying out procedures designed to improve the aesthetic appearance of teeth amounts to the practice of dentistry.’ We have had many patients come in to the practice with problems of severe sensitivity and gum problems after having their teeth whitened in a beauty salon. If you are considering teeth whitening please always make sure it is a qualified dentist doing so. If you would like to know more on this please visit the GDC website:

  • Braces are only for children

There are so many different types of braces available, there is one to suit everyone’s lifestyle. Whether it’s for children, students, or grandparents anyone can have straight teeth! According to the British Orthodontic Society (BOS) nearly 1 million people in the UK started orthodontic treatment last year alone. At 1Smile Clinics we have braces that straighten teeth within several months or ones that are nearly invisable. Even better, consultations are completely free. We also have interest free payment plans.

 

  • Dental treatment is too expensive

It is true that certain treatments at the dentist can be expensive. However, this tends to be cosmetic treatment which is entirely your choice to have. NHS treatment is subsidised by the NHS. The prices are also standard across the whole of Scotland, so we can’t charge any less or more than what the NHS sets. If you receive benefits from the government then NHS treatment is free. NHS treatment is also capped, so the most anyone will pay for the one course of treatment is £384. Cosmetic treatment can be paid for using finance or dental payment plans, such as Denplan. Oral health is very important; it can affect your confidence, ability to eat, ability to communicate and your general health. Any treatment you have and money spent is essentially an investment in your health. Too often people forget that a dental practice is a business, just like the shops you visit every week. No one would go to a supermarket and tell the girl at the cash desk that they’ll pay next time… so why is this acceptable at the dentist?

Fine particles of silica are projected onto the surface of teeth which upon contact with a stained surface restore the whiteness lost due to darkening caused by previous discolouration.
