Teeth whitening is one of the fastest and easiest ways to give your smile a boost. Our smile is one of the first things people notice when they meet us, and a beautiful smile helps to make the best impression. Whitening under the care of a dentist is a safe and quick cosmetic dental treatment. Depending on the type of treatment you choose, you could have a brighter, whiter smile in just one hour.
At our dental practice in Beaconsfield, Buckinghamshire, we offer two options for whitening: Power whitening here at the practice, or home whitening.
But why do you need teeth whitening treatment? Our teeth become stained for many reasons, including:
- Food and drink we consume (such as coffee and tea)
- Certain medications and mouthwashes
- Teeth naturally become duller as we age
Teeth whitening works by using a special, safe dental bleaching products to remove stains and lighten the colour of your teeth, often by several shades.
How can we help?
Our cosmetic dentists have treated hundreds of happy patients from across Buckinghamshire and beyond. Depending on your individual wants and needs, we will recommend either home or power whitening. Here’s how the treatments work:
1 Power Whitening
This takes place in the comfort of our Buckinghamshire practice and typically lasts one hour. You relax in the chair while your dentist places a protective barrier on your gums and lips, and applies gel to your teeth. A special lamp is used to activate the bleaching process. In just an hour your teeth could be several shades brighter – perfect if you have a special occasion coming up.
2 Home Whitening
We’ll measure you for whitening trays and provide you with teeth whitening gel to use at home. You put a small amount of the gel in the trays and wear them overnight for about two weeks. The result is brighter, whiter teeth.
