How many times have you wished you could smile at someone without feeling embarrassed about your stained or dingy looking teeth? Hiding your smile is all well and good but it could be giving
people the impression that you’re a little aloof or just plain miserable! Perhaps you’ve tried over-the-counter teeth whitening products and been disappointed with the results, but that doesn’t mean you’re stuck with yellowing teeth for ever.
Don’t give up!
The good news is that there are a multitude of methods for supposedly whitening teeth. The bad news however is that some are better than others. With this in mind, let’s take a closer look at how teeth whitening works to help you decide what’s right for you.
You’ve probably read about natural ways to whiten teeth at home by eating strawberries or making a paste of bicarbonate of soda – well truthfully they may make your smile feel fresh and zingy but that’s about all. Tooth whitening toothpaste is also woefully inadequate at whitening teeth, as you’ve probably discovered too.
So what about teeth whitening strips, they should work as they contain bleach, right?
Well we’re afraid they’re not that great either because they simply press against your teeth. As such they don’t always guarantee the best fit and unfortunately it can lead to uneven results.
If you’re looking for long lasting, effective and safe methods to whiten your teeth, then the best way forward is the cosmetic teeth whitening service that your friendly dentist can provide.
A winning team
We use one of the best teeth whitening treatments on the market – Opalescence. This patented formula works effectively whether you’re in need of minor or major teeth whitening. Depending on your choice of gel, the ingredients include either carbamide peroxide or hydrogen peroxide, which not only lift exterior stains but also eliminates deep-rooted stains which are responsible for unsightly tooth discolouration. By teaming up with your dentist and Opalescence you’re guaranteed a winning smile since your progress will be monitored throughout and any sensitivity issues dealt with.
Teeth whitening as you like it!
We’re all different which is why we offer a choice of Opalescence teeth whitening: A speedy one hour chair-side treatment for those who just can’t wait for their new smile; custom take home kits which offer professional results in the privacy of your own home; and ready to go treatments with pre-filled disposable trays that you can use for topping up your whiteness.
The chair side treatment is by far the quickest way to brighten your teeth and is the ideal choice if you have a special event looming and want your teeth to look their best. The process is quick and easy and once the dentist has carefully applied the gel to each tooth, it works its magic until the desired colour is reached. Finally in a less than one hour the gel is washed off to reveal your brilliant white smile.
The At Home treatment delivers the same amazing results but involves you wearing custom-made professional dental whitening tray kits which are filled with the Opalescence gel. Flexibility is the name of the game, since this whitening systems offers a choice of 4 concentrations and 3 flavours (mint, melon, and regular). The trays can be worn for as little as 30 minutes per day or over night if you prefer and you can expect to see visible results in a little as one week. If you want to be in complete control of your teeth whitening, then this is the system for you.
