If you dream of a whiter smile, we can make it a reality. Teeth whitening is a simple solution that can improve the colour of your teeth and boost your self-confidence.
Why whiten teeth?
While everyone dreams of a Hollywood smile, very few people have naturally bright, white teeth. Your teeth change colour as you get older, and other factors like what you eat and drink can affect their colour. Coffee, red wine, curry, balsamic vinegar and dark berries are all teeth staining culprits. You may have an important event coming up, such as a wedding or holiday, that you want to look your best for. It may be that your teeth have gradually become discoloured due to certain prescribed medications or antibiotics. A build-up of calculus (tartar) can also lead to yellow-looking teeth, as can habit like smoking.
Your whitening consultation
We will get you in for a consultation to discuss the concept of whitening your teeth. We then take impressions so we can mould your whitening trays to the shape of your teeth. This often takes around one week. We will then provide you with a full kit, including your trays, whitening solutions and a case. You will then be all good to go to professionally whiten your teeth at home. How long will the treatment last? How long your teeth stay whiter and brighter after treatment is down to you. Stay away from stain-culprits and keep up a good oral health routine. Since you will have the trays at home, you will be able to further whiten those teeth whenever you like.
How you can keep a whiter, brighter smile
As well as using a whitening treatment, you can keep your smile looking fresh and bright by incorporating these five simple steps into your oral care routine:
Avoid, or keep to a minimum, foods like curry and berries and beverages such as coffee and red wine known to stain teeth.
Have a glass of water or rinse your mouth out within thirty minutes of eating.
Plaque attracts stains, so regular brushing and flossing can help remove any build-up.
Use a tooth whitening toothpaste or mouthwash.
Visit our hygienists for a scale and polish at least once or twice a year.
We listen to what you want and advise you on what you need.
