Brighten Your Teeth For Christmas
Are you ready to Brighten Your Teeth For Christmas? For most of us Christmas is all about spending valuable time together as a whole family and this often includes taking plenty of photos to capture those precious moments. If your smile is looking a little dull or dingy then you might want to consider teeth whitening. Achieving white teeth can be easily be achieved in a procedure which is safe, painless, and quick.
Common causes of discoloured teeth
Teeth naturally darken with age, but in addition lifestyle habits such as drinking coffee, tea, and red wine, can cause the teeth to stain, as well as smoking, poor oral hygiene, and certain medications.
Teeth whitening procedures
It’s fair to say that teeth whitening is one of our most popular cosmetic treatments and to fit in with patients’ needs we offer two whitening methods:
- Power whitening
- Home whitening
Power whitening – what to expect
Often patients want their teeth whitened for a special occasion so as to look their best, and are looking for a treatment which is fast and effective. Power whitening takes only an hour to complete and is carried out at the dental clinic. Your lips and gums are protected with a barrier and then a bleaching gel is applied to your teeth. A special lamp is then shone on to your teeth to accelerate the whitening process. After an hour you can expect your teeth to be several shades lighter.
Home whitening – how it works
An alternative option is our home whitening kits which enable you to whiten your teeth in the privacy of your own home and at a time that is convenient to you. We’ll take impressions of your teeth in order that custom trays can be made. These trays are designed to fit snugly to the contours of your gums and teeth and will be filled with the bleaching gel provided. You’ll then need to wear them for a few hours each day or when you go to bed at night. Most patients see results after wearing the trays for a couple of weeks and their teeth look brighter and whiter.
Professional teeth whitening in North Harrow is the safest way to whiten your teeth and the results can last up to a year provided that you cut back on the habits that causes your teeth to become stained in the first place.
We always recommend that you visit your Together Dental dentist prior to carrying out any type of tooth whitening to ensure that your teeth are free from decay and gum disease.
