There’s no disputing that white teeth are one of the main factors in creating a healthy, attractive smile. Here at Sleaford Smiles dentist, we know the value of a beautiful smile – not only how it looks, but in how it makes you feel. So, naturally, we’re experts in the teeth whitening field of dentistry. In this post, we’ll talk through what our teeth whitening treatment involves, what you can expect from the results, and any aftercare you’ll need to adhere to in order to prolong those gleaming teeth.
First, we’ll book you in for a consultation, where we can check the health of your teeth, gums and mouth to see if you’re suitable for teeth whitening. It’s important to note that even though this kind of treatment is for cosmetic purposes, it should only be carried out by a dental professional – so rest assured you’re in safe hands with us.
We use Enlighten Whitening, which gives fantastic results stage by stage, while also helping ease any sensitivity you might experience during the process. It involves using three desensitising elements: a serum and chair-side treatment, plus at-home swabs, so while you’ll have some in-surgery teeth whitening to boost your shine, you’ll be able to do the majority of the treatment from the comfort of your own home, using specially moulded trays.
There’s lots you can do to help your smile following teeth whitening. In the first 24 hours, avoiding anything that might stain your teeth – from smoking, to drinking coffee, to eating foods like chocolate – will help results develop. Using a white toothpaste is best, and making sure you have a good dental routine can help future staining set in. Your Dentist will give you a full run-down of what to avoid and how to care for your smile following treatment.
We’ll take before and after shots so you can see the results of your teeth whitening, plus you can see the difference against our shade chart – Enlighten guarantees that everyone using the treatment can achieve a B1 shade, or the whitest natural shade.
Some people’s teeth are prone to white spots, patches or a mottled appearance. This can have a variety of causes, from injury to high fluoride-intake to poor oral hygiene. While it may seem like teeth whitening is the answer, it actually calls for a different type of treatment, called ICON white spot treatment.
