Get a Gorgeous White Smile with Professional Teeth Whitening
A professional teeth whitening treatment is one of the easiest and most affordable ways to quickly improve your smile and is one of our most popular procedures. Teeth can discolour as a result of ageing and they can become stained due to lifestyle habits such as smoking, enjoying tea, coffee and red wine and highly coloured foods. Your teeth may also be discoloured due to taking certain medications. With a professional teeth whitening treatment, we can safely and quickly bleach away stains, lightening the colour of your teeth and creating a more youthful and naturally healthy effect. The most important thing is for our dentist in Southend to make sure your teeth are strong and healthy.
Your Initial Consultation for Teeth Whitening
You will need to book an appointment to see our dentist prior to whitening and this is essential as we must check the condition of your teeth to make sure you do not have any dental problems that require treatment. Issues such as untreated tooth decay or gum disease could become worse if you whiten your teeth without first treating these problems and at the very least, whitening could be quite uncomfortable or even painful. Your comfort and safety are our top priority so we will make sure that whitening is appropriate for you.
During this appointment we can also assess why your teeth have become stained and the type of tooth stains that are present, for example your teeth can be stained internally or externally and this does affect the treatment we suggest and the type of results that you can achieve. If your teeth are internally stained then we may need to carry out internal bleaching for those particular teeth or another option is to cover them up completely with veneers or crowns, depending on their condition.
One option is to whiten at home with a custom-made whitening kit which will contain whitening trays that will fit exactly over your teeth and the correct strength of whitening gel. We will show you how to use the whitening trays and you can leave them in for a few hours each day or overnight. It generally takes a couple of weeks to complete treatment but it does offer a greater degree of control.
Here at Southend Dental Care we only use the best quality whitening gels so you can be sure of being able to whiten safely and effectively. We can also give you lots of advice on how to prolong the results and of course you can always visit us again at a later date for a top up treatment.
