Teeth whitening is a quick and effective way to improve the aesthetic look of your smile, making it whiter and brighter. Treatments that whiten teeth contain hydrogen or carbamide peroxide, these bleach your teeth quickly and safely.
Many different factors cause tooth discolouration. Internal stains can happen from overexposure to fluoride or using certain medications during childhood. This deep-seated discolouration can also happen because of tooth enamel wearing down. These stains may need crowns or veneers to change their appearance.
External surface stains can be caused by smoking or other tobacco use, certain foods, and beverages such as red wines, coffee, and tea. These stains are easily removed using teeth whitening treatments.
The length of any treatment depends on how well you care for your teeth in the weeks following that treatment, but results typically last between 6 months to 2 years.
To prolong the life of your teeth whitening treatment limit your consumption of tea, coffee, and red wine and avoid tobacco products.
Good oral hygiene and regular hygiene cleanings can also extend the longevity of your bright smile.
Many of you will be aware that during the latest Covid 19 update dental practices have been given the green light to re-open the surgery from 8th June. Whilst this is good news, there are a number of procedures that we have being putting in place to make treatment safe for our patients and staff, as we are sure you will appreciate, this is taking some time to set up.
Our intention is, if at all possible to commence opening on the 8th June but this is entirely dependent on our ability to obtain training and appropriate PPE which as you know there is a great shortage of. This equipment will be essential for us to be able to operate.
From 8th- 29th of June we will be prioritising the most urgent of cases including those who have been experiencing problems during this lockdown period. We will contact you directly to arrange an appointment. This period may be extended if required.
Rest assured we are trying our utmost to source this PPE as soon as possible to enable us to extend our treatment further to include fillings, crown/bridge work, root treatments and surgical extractions, scale & polish ect.
We anticipate that it will be several weeks before we will be able to commence these more advanced procedures.
This is a rapidly changing environment which we are adapting to as quickly as we possibly can. We really appreciate your patience and understanding throughout this difficult period and look forward to welcoming you back to the practice soon.
