In Burnham, teeth whitening is considered a very important treatment at The Dental Surgery Burnham.
Tooth discolouration is a common problem for people who have had poor dental hygiene, or it could be caused by food staining (tea, coffee and smoking are common culprits), fluoride exposure, dental trauma, antibiotics and aging.
Having badly discoloured teeth can greatly affect a person’s confidence, causing them to cover their mouths and smile less. Many people are turning to teeth whitening to improve their smile and confidence, but in Burnham, teeth whitening is a procedure that is best followed under the guidance of a professional.
Teeth whitening is wrongly thought of as something you can do at home with a kit bought at the chemists.
At The Dental Surgery Burnham, teeth whitening is carried out using a system called Enlighten, which guarantees a final white shade called B1, which is the brightest, whitest shade it is possible to achieve with a teeth whitening system.
Good quality, long-lasting teeth whitening can take time. Once the patient has received an initial consultation to assess the condition of their teeth, we supply the patient with a teeth whitening gel for apply for two weeks. The patient then returns to our practice for a comprehensive cleaning and an application of a concentrated version of the teeth whitening gel, which stays on the teeth for 40 minutes. The teeth whitening procedure will produce results which can last for six months, depending of the lifestyle and eating habits of the patient. However, it is unlikely that the original stained colour will return.
Whether it is teeth whitening or some other dental work you require, you can rest assured that everyone at The Dental Surgery Burnham is committed to giving you the best dental experience possible. We are here to listen to your needs, and guide you through your dental treatments, while working hard to maintain standards of professionalism, often attending the same courses and events to ensure that our knowledge is up to date. Our commitment to training and overall standards is reflected in the fact that the NHS recognises us as an Advanced Training Practice.
