Teeth Whitening: The Fastest Way to Get a Whiter Smile

If the long dull days of winter are making you feel a little down, why no treat yourself to a tooth whitening treatment? In no time at all you will find yourself wanting to smile at others, just so you can show off your beautifully white and healthy teeth. The great thing about smiling is that it is a real mood booster and a lovely smile is very infectious.

Why Choose Professional Tooth Whitening?

tooth whiteningIt is true that you can buy over-the-counter whitening kits very cheaply, but by law these will contain lower strength whitening gels that are not nearly as effective as the products that can only be used by dental professionals. This does mean the results will be far inferior to professional tooth whitening and not nearly as safe.

We Make Sure Tooth Whitening Is Safe and Effective

When you visit Clarence House Dental Care to find out about tooth whitening, our dentist will carefully examine your teeth and gums before recommending this treatment. This is because it is essential that tooth whitening is only carried out on a healthy mouth as otherwise you could cause further damage to your mouth if you have any signs of untreated diseases, such as tooth decay or gum disease.

Another reason for this check is to assess the potential efficacy of treatment. Everybody’s teeth are slightly different and the results achieved will vary. This is particularly true if you happen to have any crowns, bridges or porcelain veneers, or tooth coloured fillings as these will not change colour when you whiten. Some teeth won’t respond to whitening if they are very badly stained, for example through tetracycline use or where a tooth may have darkened after a very old root canal treatment.

About Our Customised Home Whitening Kits

Our customised home whitening kits are very safe and affordable as we provide you with custom-made whitening trays that will fit snugly over your teeth, ensuring whitening gel cannot leak out onto your gums. All you have to do is put the whitening gel into the mouth trays and these can be worn overnight or if you prefer you can wear them for a few hours during the day. Our dentist in Watton will show you exactly how much gel to use. It typically takes around two weeks for the full effects to be seen but you should notice your teeth look brighter and whiter after just a few days of use.

The really nice thing about using a customised home whitening kit is that we can make sure you are provided with the correct strength of whitening gel for your comfort. For example, if you have slightly sensitive teeth then we can prescribe a lower strength whitening gel so you can whiten a little more slowly but with far fewer side-effects. Another thing to bear in mind about using our custom home whitening kit is that you will have the mouth trays to top up the results at a later date so treatment is extremely cost-effective.
