Quick Ways to Get a Whiter and Brighter Smile
Who wouldn’t love a whiter and brighter smile, but if you have a busy lifestyle then you may not want to wait too long to get this effect. This is where cosmetic dentistry in Watton can help you. There are a number of different procedures that can help brighten up your smile within a very short space of time so you can enjoy it all the sooner.
One of the easiest ways to give your smile a quick boost is to visit our hygienist. This can be booked as a stand-alone treatment as you do not need to book an appointment to see our dentist in Watton, although we highly recommend this if you are overdue for your check-up! Our hygienist can remove all plaque bacteria and calculus, which is a hardened form of plaque from your teeth during a process called scaling. This is completely painless and is followed up by having your teeth gently polished which is lovely for brightening them up and making them sparkle. Of course this isn’t merely a cosmetic dental treatment as it is essential for ensuring your gums remain healthy and strong.
Teeth whitening takes things a step further and you will need to see our dentist in Watton in preparation for this treatment. This is because a quick check-up is required to make sure your teeth are suitable for whitening and that you do not have any signs of gum disease or tooth decay as this could cause you unwanted discomfort. We like to use home whitening kits that include custom-made whitening trays. Our whitening trays are made from a lightweight plastic material and will be made so they fit precisely over your teeth. All you have to do is to fill the whitening trays with gel (we will show you exactly how much to use) and then you can wear the whitening trays for a few hours each day although some people prefer to wear them overnight. It generally takes a couple of weeks to see the full results of whitening but this is a very gentle way to brighten your smile.
Our dentist in Watton only uses the highest quality whitening gels that will not harm your teeth. Whitening at home is also ideal if you have sensitive teeth as we can adjust the strength of the whitening gel prescribed to you and if you do feel any side effects and you simply stop whitening for a day or two until they subside. Another nice thing about home whitening is that you will always have the trays for top up treatments later on.
Get Rid of Your Old Silver Fillings
If you have any amalgam silver coloured fillings then these can cause dark patches in your mouth that might be quite visible. Having these fillings replaced with our tooth coloured composite fillings can give your smile a nice boost and renewing any fillings that might be crumbling or leaky helps to protect your teeth.
We have lots of ways to help brighten up your smile and which only involve minimal time and costs. Contact Clarence House Dental Care if you are interested in finding out more. You can call us on 01953 882777.
