Where beautiful smiles are created

It’s time to get back your smile

Are you a fan of coffee, tea, fizzy drinks or fruit juices? Do you suffer from gum disease or hereditary dental problems? A lot of people are suffering from yellowing and discoloured teeth because of these issues, or simply because of the ageing process. Whether you want to add a sparkle to your smile for your wedding day, or perfect your look for business meetings, whitening is simple, safe and affordable. Many people say that they feel younger after the treatment, having erased the effects of ageing, coffee, red wine or cigarettes.

teeth-whitening-in-BuckinghamshireA white, bright smile looks healthy, youthful and beautiful. Being happy with your smile is a vital component in anyone’s confidence levels. In Buckinghamshire, teeth whitening is a cost-effective, safe and reliable method of brightening your teeth. At Garden View, we offer a choice of whitening treatments to help you achieve that dream smile.

Power Whitening

In Buckinghamshire, teeth whitening is becoming a popular choice for our patients, with in-house treatments, such as power whitening being the quickest option.

This is a very simple and effective procedure for those who wish to whiten teeth quickly. It is done in the dental surgery and is very useful for those who are short of time.Your dentist at Garden View will apply a protective coating to cover your lips and gums. Whitening gel is placed into a tray that fits snugly over your teeth.Alight is directed over your teeth to activate the bleaching process, which takes around an hour. All you have to do is lie back and relax while your teeth become several shades brighter.

Home Whitening

Probably the most convenient method of teeth whitening in Buckinghamshire, we can offer teeth whitening that can be done in the comfort of your own home. You will need to come and visit Garden View, so we can take impressions of your teeth. We then have customised trays made that are designed to fit snugly over your upper and lower teeth. You then apply the specially formulated gel inside the tray and wear it either at night or during the day for a few hours. After just two weeks, your smile will be whiter and brighter and your confidence will be glowing too.

Make your smile as beautiful as it is healthy

So many people struggle with the fact that, despite having a mouth that is in great shape health-wise, their smile leaves something to be desired.

cosmetic-dentistryAll it takes it one crooked, chipped or worn tooth, or a little discolouration, for someone who is in otherwise great dental and oral shape, to feel less than comfortable about smiling, eating and laughing.

Yet cosmetic dentistry in Buckinghamshire offers various different techniques, some which can be completed in a single visit, to bring out the best in your smile.

At Garden View Dental in Buckinghamshire, cosmetic dentistry covers an entire range of treatments, from the latest and best in dentures, bridges and crowns, to the state-of-the-art techniques, such as tooth whitening, porcelain veneers, white fillings and dental implants.

Cosmetic dentistry in Buckinghamshire can fit porcelain veneers over chipped, broken and discoloured teeth, or even slightly misaligned teeth. Veneers are durable, very thin covers of porcelain that the dentist fixes over your natural teeth. The dentist needs to remove a thin layer of enamel to prepare the right surface for the veneers to adhere to, and to ensure the veneers are in line with your other teeth, but once the veneers are in place, they look and behave just like natural teeth. You can have one, two, several or even a whole mouthful of veneers fitted.

If your teeth are crowded, crooked or misaligned, or your bite is uneven in some way, then cosmetic dentistry in Buckinghamshire can reposition them using Invisalign invisible aligners. These do the same job as braces, without being fixed to the teeth. Instead, aligners are very snugly-fitting transparent plastic covers that slip over the teeth. Each aligner deliberately does not quite match your teeth, but instead matches the next step along the way to their desired position, and the pressure of not quite fitting moves the teeth over a matter of months. Aligners can be removed to make it easier to eat, and to brush your teeth, or if you want to appear at your very best for important events.

In Buckinghamshire, cosmetic dentistry at Garden View also offers dental implants to replace lost teeth, and professional tooth-whitening.

Home whitening

Here at Garden View Buckinghamshire, teeth whitening has become our most popular procedure with our home whitening service proving more and more popular with our clients. Our clinicians individually custom-make gum guards ensuring the perfect fit for your teeth. With this you receive our whitening gel apply inside the gum guard. This can be used to sleep in overnight or just or a couple of hours a day to achieve that dazzling smile.

Power whitening

In just one hour our experienced dentists can take you from a dull unappealing smile to a smile you are proud of. It is a simple and pain free procedure using a lamp to activate the bleaching gel.

This is a great option if you have a big occasion or work event to attend as there’s no waiting, just that instant result you need to look your best.

Bright, confident smiles

Everyone wants to have beautiful teeth so they can smile with confidence. Over time, we acquire stains on our teeth from everyday use and these can prevent our teeth from looking their best. When this happens, you have options to restore your smile to its best.

It is possible to get back to a bright smile through the process of teeth whitening in Buckinghamshire. It’s safe, effective and simple – even for those with sensitive teeth! Book a consultation with Garden View to get the look you want through a practice you can rely on.

teeth-whitening-BuckinghamshireHow does it work?

During an initial assessment, we will discuss with you the level of staining on your teeth and the results you can expect to see. Our aim is to return your teeth to their original colour for a natural look with teeth whitening in Buckinghamshire.

The process is quick and non-invasive and does not involve any noisy equipment. You are given a custom made tray for your teeth that is filled with the whitening solution which is then given time to work. You are under the skilled care of one of our team and they will offer guidance and support along the way.

We will also give you advice on maintaining your new look for longer and, in some circumstances, we can advise on home whitening kits for future overnight use.

Everyone’s talking about teeth whitening

Gone are the days when teeth whitening was just for the rich and famous. Teeth whitening in Buckinghamshire and the surrounding area is now available to most patients, here at Garden View, and we can help to lighten the existing natural colour of your teeth, without damaging any of the tooth surface.

teeth-whiteningTeeth whitening has been practiced by dentists for over one hundred years, and now teeth whitening in Buckinghamshire is becoming more and more popular. At Garden View, our teeth whitening can be achieved in two ways:

  • Power teeth whitening. For this procedure the patient remains at the dental centre, and the dentist will carry out the whitening for you. We will protect the surrounding gums whilst we do the teeth whitening. We apply a gel to each tooth, and then place a lamp over your mouth which helps to gel the gel working. We expect your teeth to look whiter within one hour, and some patients are happy with one treatment, whilst others prefer to have several treatments over a short period of time.
  • Home teeth whitening. For home teeth whitening in Buckinghamshire you will need to come into the practice so that our dentist can take a mould of your mouth. This mould is used to create a plastic mouth guard which you can then wear at home. We will provide you with a solution to put into the guard, which you wear for a few hours every day. Our patients can usually expect to see a difference in the colour of their teeth within two weeks.

The colour of our teeth is determined by our genetics, therefore it varies between individuals, although our teeth do tend to naturally darken as we get older, and this can be speeded up by the amount of coffee, red wine, and other staining foods we consume, as well as smoking. If you are looking for teeth whitening in Buckinghamshire, feel free to contact Garden View, we will be more than happy to talk you through the processes we offer, and book you in for a no obligation consultation with our dentist.

Has the population finally kicked their cigarette habit?

According to global market research company Mintel, 2014 was the first year (hopefully of many) in which the cigarette market received a decrease in sales. This strongly indicates that people are becoming more health conscious and possibly more aware of how smoking can negatively affect their appearance. Although kicking the habit has massive health and aesthetic benefits, what damage has it already done to the teeth of previous smokers?

teeth-whitening-in-BuckinghamshireReversing the effects

Many former smokers notice that their teeth have been stained a darker or yellow shade, due to the nicotine and tar contained in tobacco. However, these effects need not be permanent; dental practice Garden View Dental Care offer teeth whitening in Buckinghamshire to reverse this discoloration. There are two types of safe treatments the clinic offers to help tackle the stains: home whitening which involves wearing a custom tray mouth guard that’s lined with whitening gel at night as you sleep, and a procedure undertaken at the clinic using the whitening gel and a lamp to activate the bleaching process. The second method gives results over a shorter period of time, and is called power teeth whitening. Buckinghamshire ex-smokers can rest assured with the realisation that the cigarettes they smoked in the past, don’t have to dictate how their teeth will look in the future!

Garden View Dental Care is host to warm and friendly staff and a highly experienced dentist and dental hygienist that will perform the power whitening procedure, or guide you through the process of home teeth whitening. Buckinghamshire residents can also take advantage of the other cosmetic procedures offered at the practice that can further improve the appearance of their teeth. The other procedures include: porcelain veneers, white fillings, and diastema closure.

A brief history of teeth whitening

At our practice in Buckinghamshire, teeth whitening is a very popular treatment amongst our patients, but did you know where the idea of teeth whitening first came from? We take it for granted now that we can lighten the shade of our teeth with the latest technology, but it wasn’t always the case!

teeth-whitening-BuckinghamshireDid you know that it was the ancient Egyptians who are attributed with the first recorded practice of teeth whitening? Buckinghamshire is a far cry from ancient Egypt, but the first teeth whitening pioneers were seeking to maintain or embrace the social signifiers of beauty and wealth that came with having bright white teeth in ancient Egyptian society. These early pioneers used a mixture of wine vinegar mixed with ground pumice stone to create a paste that could be applied to the teeth.

Wee and acid, are you sure that’s a good idea?

There have been many strange teeth whitening procedures employed throughout history. Some people would file down the teeth they wanted to whiten and then applied an acid that eroded the tooth enamel but left the teeth looking whiter. The only problem was this was that it tended to lead to advanced tooth decay as a result!

Even stranger were the Roman practices of using… yes, you’ve guessed it… urine, to whiten their teeth. Because of the high ammonia content of urine, the Ancient Romans used it on their teeth, the ammonia acting as a bleach to create a whiter smile. The lengths we go to for beauty!

Luckily you don’t have to go to these lengths today in Buckinghamshire. Teeth whitening is a much safer (and more hygienic) process today. Luckily you won’t have to use acid (or worse) to brighten your smile. We offer the latest in whitening technology.

At Garden View we use a power whitening treatment that can be carried out at the surgery using a special gel and an activation lamp which catalyses the gel to powerfully whiten your teeth. You can also opt for at-home trays to take with you. Whether you choose power whitening or choose to opt for a home whitening kit, you can be assured of a smile that will dazzle and amaze, with a minimum of fuss required to achieve your perfect white smile.

Teeth whitening – all you need to know about brightening up your smile

Teeth whitening is the most popular cosmetic dental treatment in the world, and it’s not hard to see why – the desire for a bright and dazzling smile is, after all, somewhat universal. Buckinghamshire dental practice Garden View offers two options for professional teeth whitening treatment, guaranteed to produce results that you will want to show off to everyone you meet.

teeth-whitening-BuckinghamshireSafety first

If you are exploring your teeth whitening options, it’s important to remember that by law it can only be prescribed by a dentist. There are several reasons for this, all of them designed to protect your safety.

At our Buckinghamshire dental practice we are aware that there are many products available on the open market that claim to whiten your teeth. Options bought from a chemist or supermarket will probably be safe enough, but are unlikely to produce the results you want, meaning you will have wasted both your time and your money, and will still have stained teeth.

Products purchased from the internet may be of dubious origin, meaning that you can’t be sure where they came from or what’s in them. Some contain dangerously high levels of hydrogen peroxide (the dental bleaching agent used in teeth whitening) and can cause damage to your teeth and gums.

Similarly, beauticians and any other unlicensed providers of teeth whitening treatment must be avoided, because they can hurt you and leave you needing extensive restorative dental treatment. The General Dental Council takes a dim view of illegal teeth whitening, but it often takes someone to suffer harm to their teeth and gums before it is brought to their attention.

At Garden View Dental Care in Buckinghamshire, we offer two professional teeth whitening options. These both begin with a consultation with a cosmetic dentist.

Our Buckinghamshire clinic offers home teeth whitening, which you perform yourself under the supervision of your dentist, and which takes a fortnight; and power whitening, which your dentist carries our here in the dental practice in just one hour, while you sit back and relax.

Whichever option you choose, you can rest assured your Buckinghamshire clinician will provide safe and effective treatment.

Teeth whitening Q&A: all you need to know about the world’s most popular cosmetic dental treatment

Teeth whitening is the most popular cosmetic dental procedure in the world. Garden View Dental Care in Buckinghamshire offers two options for whitening treatment, and a consultation with a cosmetic dentist will help to determine the best option to suit your needs.

teeth-whiteningAlthough it is a very popular procedure, many people still have questions about teeth whitening treatment. We have collected some common questions and answers below. If you have any other queries, please get in touch with our Buckinghamshire clinic.

How does teeth whitening work?

Teeth whitening involves the use of a gentle dental bleaching gel to remove stains such as those caused by tea, coffee, red wine, or smoking from your teeth.

Do I need to see a dentist for teeth whitening?

Absolutely. This is the most important thing to remember. Legally speaking, only a qualified dentist can carry out whitening treatment, which is classed as dentistry by the GDC (dentists’ governing body). Beauty parlours offering the treatment do so illegally, and using unlicensed providers or products of unknown origin purchased through the internet can cause serious damage to your teeth and gums.

How long does treatment take?

That depends on which method you choose. At Garden View in Buckinghamshire we offer two teeth whitening options:

1) Home whitening

This involves the use of custom-made mouth trays and bleaching gel. You carry out the treatment at home under your dentist’s supervision. All you do is place a small amount of gel in the trays and wear them overnight for two weeks.

2) Power whitening

This option is carried out by your dentist at our Buckinghamshire clinic. You sit back and relax whilst a lamp is used to activate the bleaching agent in the gel. Power whitening takes just one hour.

Can anyone have whitening treatment?

Most people aged 18+ are suitable for whitening. If you have suffered enamel erosion you may experience increased sensitivity, so your dentist will discuss whether whitening is suitable for you. You need to be in good oral health for treatment, and if you are pregnant it is best to avoid whitening.

Teeth whitening: everything you need to know for safe and successful treatment

Teeth whitening is the most popular cosmetic dental treatment in the world. Garden View Dental Care in Buckinghamshire offers two options for whitening treatment, which can be used as a standalone procedure or as a complement to other treatments, such as teeth straightening with Six Month Smiles.

teeth-whitening-BuckinghamshireIf you remember only one thing about teeth whitening, let it be this: it must only be carried out on the prescription of a fully qualified dentist. Whilst a hygienist or hygiene therapist who has undergone appropriate training may physically provide the treatment, it must be on a dentist’s prescription.

This isn’t just a recommendation: it’s the law. The General Dental Council has carried out a number of successful prosecutions for illegal dentistry, where beauty therapists are carrying out unlicensed teeth whitening procedures, but all too often that requires someone to suffer serious damage to their teeth, gums, or mouth before it comes to the GDC’s attention. Don’t let that be you; instead, come to our Buckinghamshire clinic for a whitening consultation with a cosmetic dentist.

Buckinghamshire teeth whitening options

We offer two teeth whitening options at our Buckinghamshire clinic, both of which begin with a consultation with a dentist and a thorough check-up, to ensure that your oral health is in good condition.

As with any form of cosmetic dentistry, teeth whitening should only be carried out in a healthy mouth. Whilst it is one of the quickest procedures in the cosmetic dental world, you should bear in mind that any gum disease or tooth decay will need to be treated first, especially if you are preparing for a special occasion.

Home whitening

Home whitening is carried out yourself, under your dentist’s supervision. It involves the use of custom-made mouth trays and whitening gel, which you use for a fortnight, wearing them overnight.

Power whitening

Power whitening takes place here in our Buckinghamshire clinic. All you need to do is to sit back and relax for an hour whilst your dentist applies whitening gel to your teeth, and uses a special light to activate it. Brighter, whiter teeth in just one hour really is possible.
