While appearance and self-esteem are one reason why we offer teeth whitening in Burnham, here at the Dental Surgery Burnham we see it as part of good dental hygiene and offering a fully-rounded professional service to our patients. This is how we view all our cosmetic dentistry treatments. Other procedures available include: Invisalign, white fillings, porcelain veneers and inlays and onlays.

Why do teeth get stained?

There are many reasons for tooth discolouration, including:

  • Over-exposure to fluoride
  • Aging
  • Stains from foods such as tea, coffee and red wine
  • As a result of dental trauma, such as damaging a tooth when young
  • Taking antibiotics
  • Smoking

At The Dental Surgery Burnham we always recommended regular brushing and flossing to all our patients but when this alone won’t do the job, teeth whitening is the next step.

Professional whitening system

There are many methods of teeth whitening available, including over the counter and homemade remedies in Burnham. Teeth whitening is a dental procedure that needs professional-level application and care. As such we strongly suggest you always consult a dentist for your own safety,  well being and to make sure you invest in a treatment that will actually work.

We regularly evaluate different whitening products to make sure we get the optimum result for our patients. We currently use the Enlighten System, which is a mixture of home tooth whitening and in-practise treatment.

How it works

  • The patient has an initial consultation and the level of discolouration is recorded
  • The patient applies whitening gel at home for two weeks
  • We then offer a thorough clean and a 40 minute application of a high concentration gel

It can take up to 6 months to see results, depending on lifestyle and level of staining on the teeth. Drop in to the surgery today to see if our method of teeth whitening in Burnham could benefit you and give you that whiter, brighter more confident smile and great oral hygiene.
