Getting a Healthy White Smile Has Never Been Easier
Getting a healthy white smile has never been easier, or safer to achieve with professional tooth whitening from your dentist in Clacton. Here at Clacton Dental Care, our dentists are able to use the most advanced techniques and materials to safely whiten your teeth and we can achieve stunning results.
Why Whiten Professionally?
While it might be tempting to whiten your teeth using over-the-counter kits, this is a dental treatment and is why the UK has strict regulations that mean only dentists or dental professionals under the supervision of a dentist are legally allowed to use professional strength whitening products. By law, anything you buy over-the-counter will have a much lower strength of active ingredient and cannot produce such good results.
Then there is your dental health to consider, as unless carried out correctly, tooth whitening could damage your teeth and may cause unwanted side effects such as increased tooth sensitivity or pain. By choosing top quality cosmetic dentistry in Clacton, you can be sure of getting the best and most long-lasting results.
Before we even prescribe a tooth whitening treatment, we will carefully examine your teeth and gums. This is to make sure teeth whitening is appropriate and will be safe. At this point we can also advise you on the type of results that can be reasonably achieved. The next step is for you to decide if you would like a power whitening treatment in our dental practice, or if you would prefer a customised home whitening kit.
Whiten Quickly with Zoom Whitening
Our Clacton dentists use the Zoom whitening system, which is highly effective and very safe. Using the highest quality products, we can whiten your teeth in around an hour which is perfect if you have special event coming up! The bleaching gel used in this procedure is activated with a special light which enables it to penetrate your teeth more easily so it can bleach away even deep seated stains.
Whiten at Your Leisure with our Home Whitening Kits
We can supply you with custom-made whitening trays and will prescribe the correct strength of whitening gel so you can whiten comfortably at home. The trays can be worn for a few hours each day, or may be left in overnight. In just two weeks your teeth will look whiter and brighter. Custom whitening at home can be good for anyone with very sensitive teeth and who will find it more comfortable to whiten slowly.
Once you have whitened your teeth, our dentists can give you lots of advice on how to make the results last for longer. The longevity of this treatment does depend on your lifestyle habits as if you smoke or drink red wine, tea or coffee, then your teeth will begin to darken more quickly. At this stage you should be able to touch up the results safely and easily with either another Zoon whitening appointment or by re-using your custom whitening trays.
