There’s strength in a smile. A smile can disarm the guarded and revive the weary. Your smile is so important to not only you, but your smile can make someone else’s day. Smiles are rated one of the most attractive features, you wouldn’t want to hide yours.
Did You Know?
Smiling boosts your immune system because your whole body relaxes when you smile? So why not give yourself a reason to smile, with whiter teeth you’ll never want to frown again.
You’re not alone, we’d all like a whiter smile and with professional whitening you can turn that frown upside down. Tooth whitening is a forever growing industry; everyone thinks they’ve got the answer to a pearly white smile but do they?
There are a lot of teeth whitening products on the market, but that doesn’t mean you should buy them. The popularity of teeth whitening services has led to a booming industry, but one that isn’t necessarily regulated as well as it should be. Many teeth whitening products found on the shelves can do more harm than good if used improperly.
Toothpastes That Advertise The Whiten Teeth….They Don’t!
Whitening toothpastes have an abrasive formula that gives you the whiter effect due to removing slight surface staining. However it’s not just the stains that are being removed, it also wears down your enamel. If your dentist has told you that you have abrasion, this can be from brushing your teeth with too much pressure/force but also whitening too pastes have the same affect if they’re used for a long period of time. Abrasion is when the first surface layer of your tooth (enamel) is worn off; if your enamel becomes thin it can start exposing your dentine which can lead to sensitivity.
Home whiting isn’t much different either; all these celebrities’ that post their pictures with their home whiting kits claiming that’s how they got their celebrity smile… this isn’t the case. Please remember these are paid sponsorships and most of these ambassadors have never seen the product until it came through their letter box the day before. If you don’t know how to correctly use these kits they can cause more harm than good and the ingredients may not be completely safe.
BE CAREFUL WHAT YOU BUY ONLINE
Over the counter whiting products can only contain up to 0.1% hydrogen peroxide, which is the active ingredient in whitening products. This is how you know these celebrates couldn’t have got their white smiles from these products. 0.1% isn’t enough to whiten your teeth.
A professional dental practice like our own will offer high-quality teeth whitening services you can trust. Dental products have to follow strict rules, so you know they’re safe to use. They can also contain up to 6% hydrogen peroxide, which is enough to get the desired smile safely.
The best part about getting whitening products from the dentists is you’ve always got someone to go to. If you shop online and things go wrong, where do you go? Who do you turn to? However if you buy your whiting products from a dental practice you will be shown the correct and safe way to use them and if you have an questions we’re only a phone call away. You will also get fitted trays that have been specially moulded to your teeth, to prevent the hydrogen peroxide leaking and burning your gums or any other soft tissues. Don’t worry your dentist will demonstrate this to you in your appointment.
We Offer 2 Types Of Whitening
Boutique whitening which can be done in the comfort of your own home and can have an average time frame of approximately 2 weeks. We also offer enlighten which works very similar; you use your trays at home for 2 weeks and then you have a one off visit to your dental practitioner who will use your trays and a stronger whitening solution to make that smile even whiter. You and your dentist will discuss the option in a consultation and choose which methods suits you better. Once your teeth are white you only have to use your trays once a mouth to maintain the results.
Why are my teeth discoloured?
Teeth aren’t naturally white, depending on your genetics you may have darker teeth to someone else. Your teeth also darken as you get older as your enamel thins, revealing the dentin below. Dentine is the second surface of your tooth and is yellow in colour.
Is tooth whitening safe?
Teeth whitening when applied correctly using approved formulas, is 100 percent safe. Your teeth will not be damaged by the treatment, nor will you have to worry about any short-term or long-term risks.
Can I lighten my teeth by only a couple shades?
Of course you can! Because whitening is a build-able process you can stop when you achieve the desired colour.
Does whitening hurt?
You won’t be in any pain whilst whitening your teeth, if used correctly you shouldn’t even have any sensitivity. However we provide sensitive tooth pastes with our whitening kits to prevent any sensitivity that may occur temporarily.
