Feel good and look great with a white smile advice from dentist in Chertsey
There is no evidence that whitening toothpastes can actually whiten your teeth. Some of those bought abroad or on Internet web sites, can actually harm your teeth as they contain acids or abrasives that can cause permanent damage.
Age, smoking, red wine, tea and coffee are just a few of the things that cause your teeth to yellow and discolour. Whitening uses oxygenating agents (mainly hydrogen peroxide) on stains by converting coloured material into non-coloured material by oxidation.
Whitening can enhances your smile and take years off your appearance. Tooth whitening is a quick, cheap and none invasive way to dramatically improve someone's appearance.
In a British Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry (BACD) survey carried out in 2006, teeth whitening was found to be the most popular cosmetic dental treatment (31%), with women aged 25-34 being most likely to have undergone teeth whitening.
There are two main ways of carrying out tooth whitening at Estetica Surrey:
1. Tray based whitening/ home kit. The gel is placed in a custom made tray Which is worn for a set period for 10-14 days.
The period you wear the trays depends on the type and concentration of peroxide gel. Hydrogen peroxide gels work quicker than carbamide peroxide gels. You wear the trays anything from 30 minutes to overnight.
2. In-surgery whitening also known as laser or power bleaching. A more concentrated gel is applied directly to the teeth and accelerated with heat or light (laser/power). The latest system from USA is called Zoom advanced power. It involves placing the gel on the teeth and activating it with an LED light. The procedure usually takes around 45 minutes. This system still uses custom made trays to maximise the whitening and for maintenance.
The advantages of tooth whitening are that it is a quick, safe, painless and none invasive procedure that brings back the natural colour of the teeth with no structural change. Patients should be aware that it will not whiten fillings or crowns and that the procedure will only produce a natural whiteness. If they are seeking a radiator-white smile then they may need to consider other options such as porcelain veneers . At estetica in surrey we offer full range of cosmetic dental treatments such as veneers, white fillings, Zoom teeth whitening, none prep veneers, invisible braces.
