Sparkle on the inside

Having a bit of sparkle on can make all the difference to how we feel about ourselves. Shiny jewellery, shiny bits on bags and shoes and in the hair, there is no end of body parts we like to brighten up. That said, how are your teeth doing? Is the rest of you looking amazing and highly polished and your teeth languishing, forgotten, stained and dull, behind your lip gloss?

Teeth Whitening BanburyDon’t do that to one of the most important parts of your body. People are hardwired to look at smiles to assess whether someone is friendly or not. They are hardwired to respond to a great smile with equal warmth and a desire for connection. It’s how we got through life in pre-history and how our ape friends still do a lot of their communication.

If your teeth are lovely and white, you will smile more and people will respond to you more warmly. Getting teeth whitening in Banbury is easy too. At Amsel & Wilkins, we use a brand of teeth whitening called White Dental Beauty, it’s a home whitening treatment with bespoke trays.

Here’s how teeth whitening works in our dental practice. You come in for an assessment so that we can check your discolouration can be removed with teeth whitening treatment. If it can, we then take impressions of your teeth and use them to make you a set of gel trays that will fit your teeth exactly.

You take the trays and the whitening gel home, put the gel in the trays and pop them over your teeth. You wear the trays for a short period every day and in two to three weeks, you will have great results. Of course, the more stained your teeth are, the longer it will take.

Topping up

Of course, your teeth won’t stay white forever. The stains are caused by things like tea, coffee, red wine, berries and other highly pigmented foods, as well as smoking.

You can extend the life of your whitening by brushing your teeth gently after each meal or snack. Also, now that you have the trays, you can buy more whitening gel to top up when your teeth start to become dull again.

It’s so easy to whiten your teeth

Ever noticed how the more technology we have to make life easier, the busier we seem to get? Running around for work and then to fit your own appointments after that of everyone else in the family can seem impossible sometimes. But, getting teeth whitening in Banbury does not have to be a faff when you come to us at Amsel & Wilkins.

Teeth Whitening in BanburyWith our home whitening kit, you can whiten your teeth at a time that suits you in the comfort and privacy of your home, secure in the knowledge that you are using a product that is safe for use and will not harm you.

White Dental Beauty

At Amsel & Wilkins, we have done your research for you and offer White Dental Beauty home whitening. We chose White Dental Beauty as our brand because it offers a comfortable and safe way to carry out whitening yourself at home.

But first…

Before you can get started with teeth whitening, you need an appointment to make sure that you have surface staining rather than intrinsic staining. Whitening only works on surface stains, which are traces of highly pigmented foods and drinks that have worked their way into the pores of the enamel. Intrinsic discolouration is within the structure of the tooth and cannot be removed with whitening. If you have that kind of discolouration, we can find another way to help you.

Once we have established what kind of staining you have, and how white you want your teeth to go, we can prescribe the right strength gel for you and take impressions of your teeth to make gel trays that fit you exactly. These will ensure the gel has maximum contact with your teeth without spilling over to damage your soft tissues.

How you do it

You take the kit home and use it every day for a prescribed amount of time. You simply put the gel in the trays and wear them. The process takes between one and two weeks, depending on how strong your staining is and how white you want to go.

Now that you have the trays, you can buy more gel and top up your whitening every time it starts to fade.

Zoom! your way to white teeth

Everyone wants a healthy white smile and you can achieve a brighter, happier smile with Zoom! teeth bleaching in Banbury. Here at Amsel & Wilkins you can either go for the convenient Zoom! at-home whitening, or the Zoom! in-chair whitening, which will give you an instant result.

If you lead a hectic life with no time to spend wearing whitening trays at home for a few days and you would like to have instant results then Zoom! in-chair whitening could be the perfect option for you.

Teeth Bleaching in BanburyDoes it take a long time?

Your appointment will usually take around one to two hours and after this you will leave our practice with a whiter, healthier looking smile. Zoom! teeth bleaching is an accelerated and simple tooth whitening procedure.

After a thorough teeth cleaning, a powerful bleaching agent created from concentrated peroxide will be applied to your discoloured teeth. This strong dental gel is then allowed to cure under the Zoom! light. During this time, the bleaching gel slowly dissolves stains that are attached to the teeth that have contributed to the yellowing or staining. If your teeth become sensitive after your Zoom! procedure, a special dental paste can be applied to reduce any sensitivity or discomfort.

After your in-chair treatment has been completed we will give you whitening trays and gels to take home to enable you to continue to get the best possible results.

How long will it last?

How long your Zoom!! whitening will last will depend on your social habits and how well you look after your new smile. The Zoom procedure whitens both the interior and exterior of teeth that respond well to whitening treatments. Avoiding sugary drinks and other foods and drinks that can stain your teeth is also a good choice if you want to keep your smile as white as possible. Simple changes in your diet and continuing regular oral hygiene and professional cleanings will prolong the results.

So, what are you waiting for? Make an appointment with us for your initial Zoom teeth whitening consultation ad your dream shite smile could be closer than you think.

Brighten your smile with teeth bleaching in Banbury

Are you tired of having yellow, stained teeth, despite your diligent daily oral hygiene? You are not alone. Luckily, professional teeth whitening can help you overcome stained teeth and smile again with confidence.

At Amsel and Wilkins, we understand there is a chance your teeth have seen whiter days and we are here to help you restore the brightness of your smile. We deliver two types of teeth whitening – power whitening and home whitening. Both methods are safe and highly effective.

Bleaching in BanburyWhy do teeth turn yellow?

So what causes teeth to discolour over time? Teeth darken naturally as we age and some people are genetically predisposed to have darker teeth than others, yet tooth discolouration is a very common phenomenon with various causes. Understandably, smoking, as well as excessive alcohol consumption, contribute greatly to the staining of teeth .

Similarly, caffeine and red wine also yellow teeth over time. Additionally, dark-coloured foods like blueberries, pomegranates and blackberries can leave teeth tinged with stains, and so do red pasta sauces and balsamic vinegar. Finally, some medications accelerate tooth yellowing. While it is not necessary to stop enjoying these foods altogether, it is really important to brush and floss your teeth straight after consuming them. This way you will minimise the staining effects.

Power whitening

Power whitening is ideal for patients looking for immediate results. A power whitening treatment at Amsel and Wilkins normally takes two hours or less, depending on your desired shade, and is carried out in the dental chair. Power bleaching is ideal for people who have an important event coming up and want to look their best.

Home whitening

Home whitening lasts longer than power whitening and can be performed in the comfort of your own house. Your dentist will provide you with a custom-made, lightweight, mouth tray that fits snugly over your teeth. You will then have to put a bleaching gel inside the tray and wear it all night or for a few hours during the day. You will begin to notice the first results approximately after two weeks.

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!

teeth-whiteningHow does teeth whitening work?

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.

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. Contact us at the surgery for teeth whitening in Banbury, bleaching starts from just £510. That beautiful smile is more available and affordable than ever before with teeth whitening in Banbury.
