We know there are many teeth whitening kits to buy online or over-the-counter, but if you have already tried these you will know they are not amazingly effective and in the worst case they could damage your teeth and gums.
This is why it is always best to opt for a professional teeth whitening treatment that will provide you with the very safest and most effective results. You only have one set of adult teeth, so why take the risk of damaging them?
Why Professional Teeth Whitening is Always Best
This is an essential step in planning a tooth whitening treatment as it allows us to make sure this procedure is appropriate for you, to determine the reason why your teeth have become stained and to discuss the results you can expect from having your teeth professionally whitened.
In order for a successful and comfortable tooth whitening treatment, you need to have healthy teeth and gums that are free from disease.
Teeth can darken due to a variety of different reasons which include lifestyle choices such as smoking or eating and drinking lots of highly coloured foods, but they can also darken for other reasons.
Certain antibiotics can cause staining and teeth may become internally stained due to root canal therapy. Everybody’s teeth whiten slightly differently which is why it’s important to be aware of the kind of results you can reasonably achieve.
Teeth Whitening Procedure Preparation
Once you decide to go ahead, we can whiten your teeth with a power whitening treatment. We often choose to use Zoom whitening and you may have heard about this system as it is one of the best-known teeth bleaching systems in the world. It is extremely safe and produces reliable and predictable results.
Every treatment provided by our dentists is fully customized to meet your needs and the whitening treatment can be adjusted to reduce tooth sensitivity to give you a more comfortable experience.
At the end of treatment your teeth should be several shades lighter than before and will look noticeably brighter and whiter. Another professional teeth whitening system that we also use is called BriteSmile, which is equally as good as Zoom whitening.
Tooth Whitening Treatments in Just One Visit
With these treatments, we will first protect your gums and lips before applying the whitening gel. The gel is then activated with a special blue light that helps it to penetrate your teeth so it can lift deep-seated stains in your tooth enamel. The process may be repeated several times during your treatment to get the desired results.
It is a great procedure if you have a special event or simply whenever you want to treat yourself, perhaps before a vacation or just because you deserve it.
