Using teeth whitening treatment for a brighter smile

Teeth whitening is the most popular cosmetic dental procedure in the UK. It’s a great way to give yourself a smile makeover and, when carried out by a fully-qualified dentist, is safe, reliable and fast. At The Park Dental Clinic in Derby, our dental team have helped many patients to quickly and easily brighten their smile.

teeth whiteningWhen you think about what your teeth go through in a typical day, it’s not surprising that they become stained – even if you have an excellent oral hygiene routine. Drinks including coffee, tea, red wine and cola can all cause staining of the teeth, as can some medicines and medicated mouthwashes, and habits such as smoking.

Some people discover that as they get older their teeth lose some of their natural brightness. Teeth whitening delivered by a dental professional removes everyday staining and gets that natural brightness back, often leaving your teeth several shades lighter.

The most important thing to remember if you are looking for teeth whitening treatment is that it should only be carried out by a dentist (or a hygienist on a dentist’s prescription). There are numerous products available on the internet, on the high street and even in some beauty parlours that claim to whiten your teeth. However, these should be avoided.

The teeth whitening products used by dentists are subject to regulation and extensive testing. At The Park Dental Clinic in Derby, we use the Enlighten Evolution teeth whitening system, which is tried, tested and safe. It is the only whitening system in the world to guarantee a shade B1 of whiteness – which is the whitest shade in the UK. It has also been specially designed to produce near minimal levels of sensitivity.

Teeth whitening products from the internet or the high street are highly unlikely to have been tested as rigorously. In many cases they simply won’t have any effect, which is a waste of time and money. However, in some cases they can actually be harmful to your teeth and gums – which is why you should always see a dentist for teeth whitening treatment.

Have a white christmas

Have a white Christmas……

 We all like a little something to brighten up our day especially over the festive season, Why not come down to The Park Dental Clinic and brighten up your smile with our tooth whitening treatments we have available.

At the park dental clinic there are two types of whitening, in house surgery whitening, and home whitening kits.

The in house whitening treatment involves you being at the clinic for up to and hour and a half. In this time the dentist will apply and barrier cream to the gums to protect the gums while the treatment is carried out, the dentist then applies the whitening solution to the teeth and uses a special whitening lamp over the teeth to activate the solution. Once the first cycle has finished the dentist will then remove the solution from the teeth and the procedure is repeated until the desired shade is achieved.

 The home whitening treatment involve the patient coming into the clinic and having impressions of the teeth taken, the impressions are then sent to the laboratory to make personalized trays for the patient to use. The personalized trays then hold the whitening solution against the surface of the tooth. The home whitening treatment gradually lightens the shade of the tooth, and repeated over a course of time until it reached the desired shade.

Tooth whitening is a great way of increasing confidence in your smile….
