A brighter smile to boost your confidence

Having a great-looking, healthy smile is a real confidence booster for many of our patients at The Dental Surgery Burnham. Teeth whitening is one of our most popular cosmetic dentistry treatments, as it is throughout the world. Teeth whitening is an easy and effective way to enhance your smile without having to undergo treatment that will alter your teeth forever.

How do teeth get discoloured?

Tooth discolouration can be caused by many different things. If you have not looked after your teeth they can become stained or brown. Also, if you drink a lot of tea, coffee or other dark drinks, or if you are a smoker. Teeth can also be affected by exposure to fluoride and antibiotics, and, sadly, as we age, they also lose their brightness.

Whatever the reason, if your teeth are badly discoloured, you may well find that you have become self-conscious about them and perhaps lost confidence. Maybe you hold a hand over your mouth when you smile, or you supress your smile.

How we do teeth whitening in Burnham

Here, at The Dental Surgery Burnham, teeth whitening is carried out using the Enlighten system. This system is the only one that guarantees a final B1 shade of white. This is the brightest, whitest shade teeth whitening can achieve.

This system is a collaboration between us and you. Here’s how it works:

Firstly you come to us for an initial consultation, during which we assess the condition of your teeth. Then, we take impressions of your teeth to make whitening gel trays that fit perfectly over your teeth, thus avoiding the whitening gel spilling out when you wear them.

You take the trays and your whitening gel home, and over the next two weeks, wear the gel-filled trays in bed at night, or for a few hours during the day.

Then you come back to us for a 40-minute power whitening session, using a more concentrated teeth whitening gel.

After that, you are good to go. Your new teeth will stay white for up to six months, providing you take care of them and avoid those lifestyle habits that cause discolouration. Even so, it is unlikely that the original staining will return, and, if you hang on to your custom-made trays, you can top up your whitening when needed.
