What’s all the fuss about teeth whitening?

Teeth whitening? Have you heard of it? These days it is quite well known and very accessible, but if you looked around in years gone by only the rich and famous could afford such procedures. Early 80s American TV stars would come out flaunting their their golden tans and perma-smiles with unnaturally fluorescent white teeth – giving rise to that “perfect” Hollywood look. Nowadays times have changed and if you are looking for an affordable brighter, whiter smile, you are in luck with modern day teeth whitening procedures!

These days, teeth whitening is not only more affordable, but also more natural looking too. It can also help to boost self-esteem and confidence in your smile.

At Amsel & Wilkins dental practice we offer two types of teeth whitening in Banbury. Firstly is ‘Power whitening’ (otherwise known as ‘Laser Whitening’) which is solely done in the practice, and can demonstrate results in about 1 hour. Here, a protective barrier is placed onto your gums and lips, then a gel based bleaching agent is painted onto your teeth. This bleaching agent can only be activated by a special lamp or laser.

The second type of teeth whitening is called ‘home whitening’ and as the name suggests, takes places at home. The dentist takes a mould of your teeth and creates a mouth guard. We also supply you with a bleaching gel and armed with both you are ready to begin your journey to whiter teeth. Using the mouth guard allows the applied gel to stay directly on your teeth to begin the whitening process and not irritate your lips or gums. Some gels can stay on for longer than others but your dentist will provide further advice. Home teeth whitening in Banbury will give you whiter and brighter teeth but it will take up to two weeks to see an effect.

Are your teeth as white as they can be? There are things that can be done to transform stained teeth into beautiful pearly whites!

Here at Amsel & Wilkins we offer Power teeth whitening in Banbury to our patients. The treatment involves putting a barrier on your gums and lips (so they are protected) and a whitening gel is spread onto your teeth. The use of a lamp is then used to progress the whitening treatment and it takes less than an hour for your teeth to appear shades brighter! Power teeth whitening is excellent for people who just can’t wait to get that dazzling smile!

Teeth whitening in your own time

As an alternative to Power teeth whitening, Bromley at Amsel & Wilkins we offer home teeth whitening. The home teeth whitening kit includes a mouth tray that’s customised to fit over your teeth. It it also includes a whitening gel that’s added to the tray before the tray is inserted into your mouth. This process should be followed for a few hours during the day or at night over a couple of weeks, in order to achieve the desired results.

With home teeth whitening you really need to ensure you wear the tray every day during the process as the treatment won’t be as effective if days are skipped. You should also only wear the tray including the whitening gel for the amount of time it says on the kit or the time recommended by your dentist, as if the gel is left on the teeth for too long, it can cause them to become sensitive.

Whatever the reason for wanting to achieve brighter teeth, there is sure to be a treatment that’s suited to you.
