Teeth whitening is becoming the most popular cosmetic dental treatment. It is a cost-effective, quick and simple way to completely transform your smile.
Over time, your teeth will become discoloured due to lifestyle factors and ageing. Having discoloured teeth can really impact your confidence, leading you to hide your smile whilst smiling, laughing or speaking. At Stella Maris Dental, we want all of our patients to want to show off their smile. Here’s our top reasons for why you should choose professional teeth whitening.
Unfortunately, there are many individuals across the country that are administering teeth whitening procedures illegally. Having an illegal teeth whitening procedure carried out on your teeth can put your oral health at great risk. You should only have treatment provided by a GDC registered dental professional.
Your dental professional will be highly experienced in administering these potentially dangerous chemicals. They have expert knowledge of the mouth, and the know-how to eliminate any potential damage from being caused to your teeth or gums.
By choosing professional teeth whitening treatment, you will automatically benefit from knowing you are in safe hands. Before treatment commences, the dentist will carry out a thorough check of your mouth to make sure you are suitable for treatment.
If the dentist believes that there is any risk of damage being caused by the chemicals, due to the presence of active decay, for example, they will not allow you to have treatment. Your safety comes first. The dentist will help to resolve any issues first, so that whitening can commence safely.
The chemicals that are used to whiten your teeth are very strong. The bleach used for professional teeth whitening procedures is highly regulated and applied in a certain way to protect you.
Having your teeth whitened professionally will lead to better, longer-lasting results. If you have ever tried over-the-counter whitening products, you may have been disappointed with the results. This is because the products contain very low levels of the chemicals needed to bleach your teeth to a noticeable level. Because dentists are trained and highly experienced, they have access to stronger chemicals, meaning your results will be much more successful.
At Stella Maris Dental, before your treatment starts we will set a baseline. We will check the existing shade of your teeth and be able to show you the expected result that you will achieve after treatment.
After your treatment has been carried out, our dentists are still happy to answer any questions you may have about post-treatment care. We will give you tips on keeping your newly whitened teeth sparkling for longer. Our follow up appointments give us the opportunity to monitor the progress of your treatment to make sure it is working effectively and safely.
