A smile is the first thing that people notice about you; your sparkling and confident smile says a lot about your personality. Now you no longer have to avoid smiling or laughing and worry about stained, discolored or yellowed teeth as the advanced teeth whitening treatment offered by Notting hill dental clinic will restore your confidence and brighten your smile.
Teeth whitening has become a popular cosmetic dental procedure for improving the way your teeth look. Contact Notting Hill Dental Clinic to discuss teeth whitening options and our dentist will recommend the best treatment to give you a fantastic smile makeover.
Teeth whitening is the most effective solution to deal with teeth that look unappealing due to plaque deposits, stains and infection. With tested and reliable treatment options at the right time, you can look forward to clean and shining teeth within no time.
Our dentists work hard to help you achieve your best and brightest smile using two great methods:
In-office Zoom whitening treatment is the most popular and effective bleaching procedure that yields highly satisfactory results by lightening stained and discolored teeth. This process takes place under carefully monitored conditions that allow safe, controlled and pain-free use of higher concentration of bleaching gel.
The entire procedure takes less than one hour and begins with a short preparation to cover your lips and gums, only leaving the teeth exposed to the treatment. The dentist applies the Zoom hydrogen peroxide whitening gel on the teeth and uses the Zoom light to activate this gel that breaks up the discoloration. This gel is left on the teeth for around 15 minutes to break the stains into smaller pieces that make the stain color less concentrated and your teeth brighter.
Whitening treatment is also available for home use and you can continue to work with the home whitening kit by yourself, avoiding repeated visits to the dentist. You will be given a kit that includes custom fitted whitening trays that fit over the teeth. You can use these trays following the dentist’s instruction to enjoy whitening results in a few weeks.
You must understand that whitening is not a one-time process and it will not keep your teeth white forever as continuous use of foods and beverages can lead to staining. You will have to repeat the whitening treatment from time to time for cleaner and whiter teeth.
The dentist will examine your teeth, gums and supporting bone structure and discuss if the option of teeth whitening will work for you.
The teeth whitening process is not a very long or complicated one and it just takes a few minutes for the dentist to prepare your teeth and carry out the procedure. You will have to visit the dentist so that he can examine your teeth thoroughly and prepare a mouth guard to fit your mouth.
The dental whitening procedure begins by the dentist applying the whitening product on your teeth using a special tray that fits into your mouth like a gum shield. The whitening material is then activated using heat or light or both as necessary. The active ingredient in the whitening material is usually hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide that helps to get rid of stains and bleaches your teeth to desired whiteness.
Teeth whitening treatment can last for about 4 to 12 months if you take good care. But, it is important to avoid all the factors that cause staining and discoloration of the teeth especially excessive use of tea, coffee, wines and tobacco along with other such products. Good oral hygiene is important to avoid teeth staining and decay.
You must visit your dentist regularly so that he can examine the whitening results thoroughly and check out if your teeth need retouching after a certain period. You will also be recommended toothpastes containing whitening agents to maintain whitening results.
You must understand that whitening treatment does not work on all teeth and you should consult your dentist who will tell you if this is the right option for you. It is important to know that yellow teeth bleach well but brown teeth as well as teeth with grey tones will not respond to the treatment.
Whitening treatment does not work on caps, veneers, crowns or fillings and discoloration caused by medication or injury.
The answer to this is both Yes and No. if you use them the way they are meant to be, you can get desired results but if you don’t follow the instruction or don’t use them regularly, they will not help you.
The ingredients used in teeth whitening products are known to be safe when used according to the given instructions and in specified quantity. However, using these products without proper supervision is always a risk and it is recommended that you seek teeth whitening treatment with a professional and experienced dentist to avoid health concerns and achieve best results.
