One of the most straightforward and effective treatments is teeth whitening, which is now one of the largest growing cosmetic procedures in the UK and one of the safest and most effective cosmetic dental procedures that can restore your smile to its youthful appearance.
First of all, just why do our teeth discolour – even if we look after them properly? Inevitably, teeth age as we do and dull as the years go on. But lifestyle habits and diet can also impact on their whiteness – such as tea, coffee and red wine – and even certain medication can discolour teeth. And smoking has a terrible effect on not only the health of our mouth but on its appearance, too.
Teeth-whitening treatments lighten teeth and help to remove stains and discoloration. If you have any crown, theses will need to be replaced if they have been colour matched.
Legally you can only receive teeth whitening after a dentist has first examined you to make sure there are no risks or any other concern about your oral health and only a dentist, hygienist or therapist can carry out the treatment or even sell you any whitening products, as it is a prescription only medicine.
Eastgate Dental Clinic is not only safe place to get a whiter smile, but it’s also the most effective and predictable too – our systems aim to give you long-lasting whitening that is easy to maintain without suffering any sensitivity effects.
Boutique Whitening is our preferred treatment in-clinic to ensure noticeable results whilst delivering a brighter, whiter smile safely using the highest quality whitening gel.
We offer Boutique Whitening ‘By Day’ or ‘By Night’ kits that are worn at home under our professional guidance.
The daytime formula is one of the stronger whitening solutions available and is worn for just one hour per day giving fast results, which are visible in less than a week.
The ‘By Night’ whitening gel has a slower release time, so can be worn while you sleep. You’ll be able to see a noticeable result in just seven days.
This gradual approach will still give fantastic results, due the length of time the gel stays active.
The kits come with the reusable trays and the whitening gel applicators. We will show you how to apply the gel and advise on how long to wear the trays for.
Home-based teeth whitening is ideal for those more comfortable with whitening their teeth at home, one of our dentists will give you a custom-made mouth tray and some whitening gel.
The mouth tray can be worn for around eight hours a day, which is why it’s usually worn overnight. It may take a few weeks or more to achieve the lighter shade you desire.
It is essential we assess your teeth prior to a whitening treatment. Many things are checked, such as having healthy teeth and gums prior to whitening as well as whether you have crowns, veneers or bonding on certain teeth, as these will not whiten, and you will end up with a colour mismatch if this is the case.
If you have a leaking filling or a cavity the whitening agent can also leak into these areas and cause sensitivity and discomfort.
Teeth whitening is a very safe and non-invasive way to enhance your smile, if carried out using the correct products. The products we use are very safe and will not cause any damage to the teeth or gums.
