How to Get a Whiter Smile in Time for Spring

The days are getting longer and spring is just around the corner and it is a great time to think about professionally whitening your smile. Choosing a professional tooth whitening treatment at Imperial Dental Care is by far the best and safest way to brighten up your smile. Using the highest quality materials, your dentist in Harrow can soon lift the colour of your teeth by several shades. We take extensive precautions to make sure your tooth whitening will be comfortable and this includes a check-up before we prescribe any form of whitening treatment.

Why Do I Need to Have My Teeth Checked Beforehand?

white smileTeeth whitening is a dental treatment and if incorrectly used it has the potential to cause harm to your teeth and gums. We need to make sure that you do not have any cavities or signs of gum disease or other dental problems that could make tooth whitening uncomfortable or which could worsen any existing dental problems. This quick check-up by our Harrow dentist also enables us to assess why your teeth have discoloured and we will be able to tell you if teeth whitening in Harrow will work well for you and what type of results you can reasonably expect to get from having this treatment. The next thing to think about is how you will choose to whiten your teeth.

Opt for Power Whitening If You Want Fast Results

If you’d like to see the results as soon as possible then power whitening might be right for you. This treatment is carried out in our comfortable dental practice and will take around an hour to complete. During this time your gums and lips are protected with a special barrier before whitening gel is painted onto your tooth surfaces. This is activated with a special light that helps the whitening gel penetrate your teeth more easily, getting rid of even deep seated stains. Once this treatment is completed, your teeth will look several shades lighter which can be an amazing boost to self-confidence.

Our Home Whitening Kits Are Very Affordable

Another option is to whiten at home using our fully customised home whitening kits. For this treatment we will fabricate custom-made whitening trays for you to use with our whitening gel. These will fit tightly yet comfortably over your teeth and we will show you how much gel to use and can advise you how long you will need to wear these trays. Some people choose to wear them for a few hours during the day while others prefer to leave them in overnight. Whichever method you choose, you should start seeing excellent results within two weeks. Our dentist in Harrow might suggest you choose this treatment if your teeth are more sensitive as whitening more slowly can be helpful.

If you’d like to improve your smile even further then cosmetic dentistry in Harrow could be the answer. Our dental practice has lots of treatments that might help you get the smile of your dreams. Some, like teeth whitening are very quick while others can take a little longer to complete. We can advise you on the best treatments to help you get the smile you desire.
