Tooth whitening has became very popular over the past few years and more people are enquiring about it every day. It is the most effective way to get the bright white smile that you want without involving any major dental treatment.
There are a number of reasons why people would consider tooth whitening for example:
- Stained teeth – The main causes for stained teeth are smoking, drinking tea/coffee/red wine and on some occasions certain medication can also cause staining on your teeth.
- Brighter smile – Everyone wants the perfect Hollywood smile and tooth whitening can sometimes totally transform someones whole appearance. It may be that you have a special occasion coming up such as a wedding and you want to look your best.
At our 1smile Clinics we offer 3 different types of tooth whitening and our dentists will always discuss what the best option is for you at your consultation.
In – Surgery whitening:
This type of tooth whitening will be done in the practice by your dentist and will approximently take around 1 hour of your time. The procedure is very simple and causes very little discomfort to you. We would firstly isolate your gums with special material and take a note of the shade your teeth are at the moment. Place the whitening gel onto your teeth and leave it to work. The whitening gel will then be removed and applied again, this will be repeated a few times to get the best possible result. After this has been done we remove all the material from your mouth and again and take a shade match to show how many shades your teeth have lightened.
Take home tooth whitening:
Our take home tooth whitening is very popular due to the fact that you do it yourself inthe comfort of your home. Some people get panicked with this idea but it is very simple to do and you can do it in your own time. At your first appointment we would take impressions to send them to the laboratory to have your own custom made bleaching trays constructed and take a shade match and photo of your previous teeth shade. The trays are made to fit only your teeth and have little wells for the gel to be applied allowing for maximum coverage and minimum leakage. You would then return to the practice and your dentist would demostrate how to use your trays with the whitening gel. We advise that the whitening gel should be left on your teeth for around 2 hours each day for about 2 weeks to get the best possible result. After the 2 weeks you would come back for a consultation appointment and we would show you the shade difference. The main advantage of this option is that you are in control.
