Tooth Whitening

Studies have shown that our appearance plays a major role in the success of our personal and professional life. A brighter, whiter smile won’t just change the way you look on the outside but the way you feel inside too.

Tooth whitening is a great way to give your smile an instant boost – allowing you to smile freely and with confidence. As a cosmetic treatment, tooth whitening can actually contribute to the health of your teeth – often improving the condition of the enamel or helping the gums to look and feel cleaner and fresher. Our treatments are fast working, comfortable and convenient. We can provide in-surgery whitening or supply you with a kit for easy use at home.

Does tooth whitening work for everyone?

The type of treatment required and the results achieved will vary for everyone. On the whole, treatment is successful for most people and it is highly likely you will notice a change in the shade of your tooth enamel. The length of the effects will depend on your lifestyle. It is recommended that treatment is repeated at regular intervals in order to maintain the best effect. Remember that whitening doesn’t work on ‘false teeth’ so it won’t have an effect on any fillings, crowns, bridges or implants.

Where should I get my teeth whitened?

For a safe and effective result you should always make sure your tooth whitening treatment is carried out by a registered and qualified professional. Never use kits available online or have it done at a beauty or hairdressing salon. At Pemros Dental Practice we are members of the British Dental Bleaching Society. We use only their recommended tested procedures and techniques so that we can ensure you will be extremely happy with the results.

Why do our teeth stain?

Not matter how well you brush your teeth it’s impossible to prevent staining or discolouration over time. This is because the stains gradually build up on the inside surface of the tooth. There are many types of food and drink that can stain your teeth more quickly. Smoking can also be a major factor. Some people who are on long-term medications find their teeth darken over time. Generally, it is a natural process that happens to almost all of us over time for one reason or another.

So what’s next?

If you are interested in having your teeth whitened please contact us to book a consultation so that we can advise you on the most suitable treatment for you. Before any treatment begins you will be invited to see the hygienist who can prepare your teeth for the procedure. This will help to ensure the best results.
