Teeth whitening is an effective way of lightening the shade of your teeth without changing the tooth structure.
Most people’s teeth lose their whiteness over time. As you get older, your teeth may naturally take on a yellow, brown or grey hue. Consuming darkly pigmented food and drink (red wine, tea, coffee and soda) can also cause staining and discolouration.
The most common professional teeth whitening treatment is bleaching. The procedure begins with a rubber shield placed in your mouth to protect your gums, and a whitening gel applied to your teeth. The gel is usually comprised of carbamide peroxide or hydrogen peroxide. As the gel is broken down, oxygen penetrates the tooth enamel to lighten the shade of your teeth.
Teeth Whitening London Clinic is also proud to offer the innovative zoom whitening treatment, which shines a laser over the gel to enhance the wahitening process. Similarly, Enlighten whitening involves a two-week home bleaching treatment followed by an in-office session with a laser.
Professional in-office whitening treatments should usually take no longer than one hour in total.
Your Teeth Whitening London Clinic dentist will assess your suitability for teeth whitening, and determine which treatment will deliver the results you desire. You won’t be able to benefit from teeth whitening if you are:
No, teeth whitening won’t work on restorations, such as, dentures, crowns and veneers. To improve their colour, you may have to have them cleaned or replaced.
There are many home whitening kits available, although their effectiveness depends on the quality and strength of the whitening agent used. Always ask your Teeth Whitening London Clinic dentist for advice before you try out home whitening treatments.
A good oral health regime with daily brushing and flossing is vital to maintaining your new and improved smile. Avoiding smoking, and food and drink prone to staining teeth will also encourage long lasting results. You should visit us for regular checkups, as well as touch-up whitening treatments if necessary.
