Whiter teeth are top of the wish-list for many people interested in cosmetic dentistry. Our teeth become stained by certain foods and drinks, including red wine and coffee, by smoking and by some medicines and medicated mouthwashes. Many people also find that as they become older they notice their teeth start to lose much of their natural lustre.
At Owlsmoor Dental Practice we offer teeth whitening treatment to help you get that sparkle back in your smile. Teeth whitening can be carried out here at the dental practice or in the comfort of your own home. It’s a fast and effective way to remove the everyday stains from your teeth and give them a natural, brighter, whiter appearance.
Whichever option you choose the dentist will first need to assess your suitability for treatment and ensure there are no other dental issues which need treating first.
Boutique Home teeth whitening
If you choose home teeth whitening, the dentist will take impressions of your teeth for your custom-made teeth whitening trays to be created.
When these trays are ready, we will see you again to check that they fit snuggly and will show you how to use them. You place a small amount of teeth whitening gel in the trays and wear them overnight or for a few hours during the day for about two weeks.
Enlighten is a system that combines home whitening with in-surgery power whitening to really brighten up your smile and provide longer lasting results. After you have completed two weeks of home whitening a session of power whitening using special whitening gel will be performed in our practice by the dentist. Teeth can be lightened up to 16 shades using Enlighten.
Whichever option you choose, please remember that teeth whitening should only be carried out by a dentist or dental hygienist. We love doing it as it’s one of the quickest and safest ways to brighten up smiles!
