Should I get my teeth professionally whitened?
Posted 18th July, 2019
Over the years, your teeth are given quite a hard time from the foods we eat, beverages we drink and other lifestyle choices that we choose to have. These factors lead to your teeth becoming discoloured and not as white as they were in your teens.
The good news is, you can restore your teeth back to their previous dazzling white selves with professional teeth whitening.
What is teeth whitening?
Teeth whitening has become very popular over recent years. In fact, it is now the most common cosmetic dentistry treatment that is carried out in the UK. Throughout your lifetime, your teeth will be exposed to a variety of factors that will cause discolouration including:
This discolouration affects the enamel of your teeth, which is the outer protective layer. When you whiten your teeth, you are using bleach to lighten the colour of the enamel. Results can vary from patient to patient, but you can expect your teeth to lighten by at least three shades.
The most important reason for choosing professional teeth whitening treatment is that it is extremely safe. Unlike people that are administering teeth whitening illegally, the bleach that is used professionally is regulated. The correct amount is applied carefully to the teeth, minimising the risk of any problems occuring after the treatment.
At Gwersyllt Dental Care in Wrexham, our dentists are qualified and experienced in carrying out teeth whitening treatment. Before any treatment begins, they will thoroughly examine your teeth and gums to check that you are suitable for treatment.
If you have ever used over the counter whitening products, you will have probably been disappointed in the results they achieved. This is because they only contain a fraction of the amount of bleach that is needed to successfully whiten your teeth.
When you choose a professional dental clinician to whiten your teeth, you will be receiving the best results possible that are much longer-lasting.
