Do you spend a lot of time shopping for stylish clothes, having your hair cut regularly and generally taking care of your appearance? If you do, are you happy with the appearance of your teeth? Are they as straight and white as you’d like them to be? Here at The Dental Surgery in Burnham, teeth whitening is just one of the ways we can help you achieve a dazzling smile. We have a range of treatments such as Six Months Smiles and clear braces that can be combined with teeth whitening to give you a mini smile makeover.
Even if you take good care of your teeth and regularly brush, floss and use mouthwash, you may still find that your teeth do not look as good you would like them to. Teeth naturally become discoloured over time. This is partly caused by the enamel becoming thinner as you get older. However most tooth discolouration is caused by the food you eat and what you drink. Tea, coffee, red wine, smoking and cola drinks are some of the most common causes of tooth discolouration. Avoiding them as much as possible can help keep your teeth whiter.
A mini smile makeover sounds great, where do I start?
At The Dental Surgery Burnham, teeth whitening is often used as the finishing touch after you have had your teeth straightened. The whole purpose of cosmetic dentistry is to enhance the aesthetic appearance of your teeth, so just having your teeth straightened might not give you the wow-factor that you had been hoping for. In this case teeth whitening is the ideal way to complete our work.
We use the Enlighten tooth whitening system, which works in stages. On your first visit impressions of your teeth are taken and personalised whitening trays will be made. You will then be given a whitening gel, which you will use every day for 2 weeks. At the end of this time you will come back to have your 40 minute comprehensive cleaning and whitening treatment using a concentrated whitening gel. The end result will be a brighter, whiter smile that looks natural and complements your appearance.
