It’s perfectly normal for our teeth to change colour over time, and eating certain foods and drinking beverages such as tea, coffee and wine can certainly stain the teeth. However, if you don’t feel confident in your smile due to discoloured teeth and would like a mouth full of pearly whites, the good news is that professional teeth whitening can lighten your teeth by several shades. If you are looking forward to enjoying the confidence that a whiter smile brings, here is everything you need to know about teeth whitening:
Professional teeth whitening is safe
If you are interested in teeth whitening treatment, you should always go to a trained dental professional. Whilst off the shelf whitening kits are available, they are unlikely to achieve the desired results and can potentially be very dangerous. In contrast, at Brunswick Square Dental Practice, our dentists are fully trained and use only the latest technology to help you achieve the smile that you are aiming for.
Everybody is different
Few people have brilliantly white teeth, but some people are born with lighter teeth than others. Therefore, it stands to reason that the results of teeth whitening can differ from person to person. At Brunswick Square Dental Practice, we carry out in-house Zoom teeth whitening, which can lighten the teeth by up to 7 shades.
Teeth whitening isn’t permanent
Whilst great results can be achieved, after having your teeth whitened, it is then down to you to maintain the colour. You can maintain the shade that is achieved with our maintenance kit to prevent further staining by cutting down on certain foods and drinks. If you are a smoker, stopping this habit also helps to prevent further discolouration.
It’s also essential to take meticulous care to maintain good oral hygiene by brushing your teeth with a fluoride toothpaste at least twice a day, flossing frequently and visiting your dentist for regular check-ups.
Zoom teeth whitening offers fast results
Philips Zoom WhiteSpeed teeth whitening provides an extremely fast and effective way of whitening your teeth, with teeth being whitened up to 7 shades in just one session. The procedure involves the use of a specialist whitening gel that is applied to your teeth, along with the use of the Zoom LED light that is positioned over your teeth, activating the gel to break up stains.
