While everyone dreams of a Hollywood smile, very few people have naturally bright, white teeth. Your teeth change colour as you get older, and other factors like what you eat and drink can affect their colour. Coffee, red wine, curry, balsamic vinegar and dark berries are all teeth staining culprits. You may have an important event coming up, such as a wedding or holiday, that you want to look your best for. It may be that your teeth have gradually become discoloured due to certain prescribed medications or antibiotics. A build up of calculus (tartar) can also lead to yellow-looking teeth, as can habits like smoking.
Your smile is unique to you, and Rainham Dental & Implant Clinic dentists understand that your reasons are personal too. Our dentists will expertly assess your teeth to make sure they are suitable for a whitening treatment.
Before undergoing treatment your dentist will professionally remove stains from your teeth using a high-specification air polisher. A Prophy-Jet uses water and air pressure to remove tartar, and the inclusion of baking soda gently buffs the surface of your teeth. This procedure prepares your teeth to best receive the whitening application and ensures the correct shade is achieved.
Your dentist will provide you with a whitening treatment to use at home. While you’ll be using the kit at home, the treatment is tailored to your unique smile. First an impression of your teeth and jaw is taken, in surgery, to custom-make a mouthguard that will be crucial to your at-home kit. Then, from the comfort of your home and when it suits your schedule, you can begin the process of whitening your teeth. It is a simple procedure that involves applying a gel to your teeth. The mouthguard makes sure that the whitening gel is evenly and safely transforming the colour of your teeth.
This is a treatment that requires multiple applications, but the ease of having the tools at home, as well as the expert advice from your local Rainham dentist, means that it is much easier to fit in and around your life.
As well as using a whitening treatment, you can keep your smile looking fresh and bright by incorporating these five simple steps into your oral care routine:
