Tooth whitening, products and timing

07/12/2021

As with anything in life it is always best to consider all angles before deciding to do something new. The desire to be able to flash pearly white teeth when smiling has become extremely popular. This has caused the market for over-the-counter teeth cleaning products to multiply and naturally there are some products on the market that do not meet the legal requirements. Tooth whitening Burnham is best done by a dental practitioner who has the expertise and knowledge to ensure that your teeth and gums are not being damaged by the chemicals in the product being used. The best time to whiten your teeth is immediately after they have been thoroughly cleaned by a dental hygienist.Blog

What causes teeth to become stained?

Our lifestyle is one cause, but a more serious cause could be a medical condition which may require attention sooner rather than later. When you come to The Dental Surgery Burnham we will firstly conduct a thorough examination of your mouth, identifying any telltale signs of underlying disease, dental or medical. Your teeth may have become stained because you do not brush and floss your teeth regularly enough. If you have not been attending your regular six monthly dental check-ups and your regular hygienist appointments, your teeth may become discoloured. An injury, perhaps from sports or an accident, can occur when the force of the impact results in insufficient blood flow to a tooth. Children can also experience discolouration of their teeth when they are forming due to excessive fluoride in the water. Different medications, especially certain antibiotics and ageing can result in discolouration of the dentine. Different diseases can cause spots and markings to appear, which our trained hygienist and dentist can identify. There are also certain infections that pregnant women may contract which can affect the development and colour of their unborn baby’s teeth when they push through their gums.

An inclusive approach

The tooth whitening Burnham approach is to involve you in the treatment so that we each have a part to play in the process. We will first conduct a thorough examination of your oral cavity and we will explain what we are looking for and what we find. After an analysis of our findings and discussion with you, we will provide you with a whitening gel that we believe is correct for your particular teeth and gums. We will ask you to apply this solution to your teeth daily for a period of two weeks, after which time we will require you to return to our surgery for the next phase of the treatment. At this next appointment we will conduct an extensive dental clean and will apply a concentrated gel, this phase of the treatment will take forty minutes. At the end of this procedure your teeth will be the correct level of whiteness that you desire and this should last for at least six months.

Your teeth are precious

You only get one set of adult teeth and while it may be desirable to have pearly white teeth it is also important to preserve your teeth to perform the function that they were designed for, namely chew your food.Tooth whitening Burnham at our surgery has the benefit of our expertise and knowledge to guide you, to ensure that your teeth not only give you a radiant, confident smile, but many years of happiness.
