When it comes to cosmetic dentistry, teeth whitening is one of the most popular treatments. For some people there’s nothing more attractive than a set of gleaming white teeth – or at least nothing that gives them more confidence to be themselves.
Teeth whitening is an integral part of our smile makeovers, and it’s the perfect way to get rid of those unsightly tea, coffee and smoke stains once and for all.
Although teeth whitening methods are often offered at beauty salons as part of treatments, it’s important to go to a qualified dental professional to avoid any potential problems and make sure the process is completely safe.
The dentists here at St Faiths can whiten teeth in a couple of ways. One of the processes involves using a specific type of substance to coat the teeth. A chemical within this activates when lit, so the dentist shines a special light onto the teeth to begin the bleaching process.
More commonly, a custom-built mouthguard is coated with bleach and the patient wears this for the time it takes to restore the teeth to their natural whiteness. The mouthguard only generally needs to be worn at night, and for how long depends on how badly discoloured the teeth are, or the desired results.
Teeth whitening is a painless and effective way to bring your smile to life. Boost your confidence, your mental wellbeing and feel more comfortable in social situations by undergoing a round of teeth whitening.
