Getting a Whiter Smile is Easy and Affordable

16/02/2016

When you meet someone new their smile is often the first thing you focus on, and for this reason it’s nice to keep your teeth looking the very best they can be. For many people this will mean having a whiter and healthier smile, and this is something that can be relatively easy to achieve with a little help from The Dental Surgery Burnham. There are quite a few different things you can do to help improve the look of your smile without needing to spend a lot of money.

Hygiene Appointments at The Dental Surgery Burnham

One of the simplest is to book a hygiene appointment. This is something you should be doing regularly every six months or so or as often as recommended by your dentist in Buckinghamshire. There is a very good reason for this as it’s a vitally important part of a regular preventative dental care routine, and will help to keep your gums healthy and free from disease, but it will also help to keep your smile looking a little whiter.

The reason for this is that your hygienist will scrape away hardened calculus or tartar from your teeth. This consists of hardened plaque bacteria and is unhealthy for your gums as it increases the risk of becoming infected and inflamed. Calculus also looks quite yellow, so having it removed automatically helps to brighten up your smile. At the end of each hygiene appointment your teeth will be carefully polished, and this will at least remove some of the surface stains from your teeth, helping to make them sparkle. By the end of your appointment your mouth should feel amazingly clean and fresh, and you’ll be ready to smile at the world once more.

Teeth Whitening

Quite a few people might find this a sufficient, but others will be interested in brightening up their smile a little more through perhaps looking at having a tooth whitening appointment with Dr AmandeepDhaliwal or another of our dentists in Buckinghamshire. Teeth whitening is safe and effective when carried out under the supervision of a dental professional, as one of our dentists will ensure your teeth and gums are healthy enough for this treatment prior to whitening. The Dental Surgery Burnham uses a very gentle tooth whitening system utilising mouth trays that are worn for a specified amount of time each day, for one or two weeks. One of our dentists in Buckinghamshire will prescribe the correct strength of whitening gel. This consists of carbamide peroxide which is a more stable form of hydrogen peroxide and it oxidizes to gently lift the stains on your teeth, helping to restore them to their natural colour.

One of the great things about this treatment is that you’ll have the mouth trays to use again at a later date as they are custom made to fit your teeth. Teeth whitening will last for quite a few months or even years depending on your lifestyle, but eventually you’ll probably want to top up the results with an additional treatment. This is all perfectly safe provided you resist the temptation to overuse the products and follow our instructions precisely. Doing so will help ensure you end up with a lovely white smile and healthy teeth and gums.
