At Cavendish Dental we offer a range of smile enhancing treatments and would be delighted to discuss your whitening needs.
As we age, our teeth start to look darker and become more stained. The original brightness, and shine of the enamel starts to dull thanks to our frequent consumption of highly staining foods such as coffee, tea, and red wine. Smoking is another staining culprit and certain medications will darken the teeth over long periods of time. Damage to a tooth, or some restorations, such as a root filling, can also cause teeth to discolour.
As stains build extrinsically (on the outside) and intrinsically (on the inside) over time, they can prove almost impossible to remove with brushing alone. Teeth whitening is an ideal way to help restore your smile to its former glory, helping to turn back the clock for a brighter and more youthful looking smile.
So don’t just put up with your yellow or brown teeth by hiding them with a well-placed hand, or avoiding having your photograph taken yet again. Check out our comfortable and affordable teeth whitening treatments that will help you smile with confidence.
Before any whitening treatment, we will fully examine your teeth and gums to make sure they are healthy and there are no underlying issues.
We will listen to what you hope to achieve so we can carefully plan and manage your treatment. Whether you want a subtle improvement or a dramatic transformation we can tailor the whitening using special colour match charts.
Teeth whitening is generally suitable for the majority of patients but do remember that restored teeth (those with fillings, crowns, bridges) and other types of cosmetic treatments, like veneers, cannot be whitened. However, once the whitening treatment is finished these can be replaced to match (at an additional cost).
We can supply custom made tooth trays for you to use in the convenience of your own home. These trays will be produced from impressions taken of your teeth and used in conjunction with a whitening gel. You simply need to wear them for a few hours each day (or overnight if it’s easier). You will see an improvement within just a few days, although it can take up to 20 days for the full effects and please note some darker coloured teeth may take longer to lighten but this will be discussed during your initial consultation.
Treatment can be controlled easily at home and once your teeth have reached the desired shade, simply stop. Keep hold of the trays and you can purchase more gels in the future when your smile needs a top up.
Provided it is carried out under the professional guidance of a registered dentist, teeth whitening is a safe, comfortable and quick way to transform a lack-lustre smile with minimal risks of damage to your teeth and gums. Cheap DIY kits, which can be bought on-line or carried out in beauty salons, should always be avoided as they can potentially cause serious damage to your mouth.
Rest assured, by visiting Cavendish Dental, you’ll benefit from our expert supervision with full aftercare as standard. Our dentists have significant training and experience of many teeth whitening treatments. We only use those products that we have previously tried and tested and offer a safe, comfortable experience for all our patients, with great results.
Teeth will continue to stain over time so we recommend a repeat treatment to maintain the look of your smile. The frequency of treatment will depend on your genetics, lifestyle and diet. Remember that other habits such as smoking and how often you brush your teeth will also have an effect.
