Are you unhappy with your less than perfect smile?
Do you feel that keeping your teeth white has become a real challenge?
If the answer to any of the above is yes, then we have the answer…
Here at York House Dental, we provide dentist-led teeth whitening in Chesham that is affordable, safe and effective.
If you are looking to reverse the signs of discolouration and put the sparkle back into your smile, then ask us about home-based teeth whitening treatment available from our Chesham dentist.
There are a number of factors that affect the whiteness of teeth and include:
Stain-inducing foods and beverages like coffee, red wine, tomato sauce and curry are particularly problematic
Substances found in tobacco smoke (primarily nicotine) will cause a yellowing of the teeth
As we age our tooth enamel thins, exposing more of the yellow dentin underneath
Certain medications including the antibiotics tetracycline and doxycycline are known to cause tooth discolouration as do certain mouth rinses containing chlorhexidine
when blood leaks out of a blood vessel after injury, small particles of blood by-product such as iron are left behind. This can make the tooth appear grey, dark grey, brown or even black.
Home-based teeth whitening kits are one of the wonders of cosmetic dentistry.
They allow the patient the beauty of a dentist-led treatment, except the whitening process is carried out in the comfort of your home. Here’s how the process works…
After an initial consultation and dental check-up, our experienced team will take ‘before’ pictures of your current smile. We will also scan your teeth using the latest equipment to create your custom whitening (bleaching) trays.
Next, we will ask you whether you prefer whitening your teeth during the day or at night and talk about the level of whiteness you want to achieve. Then based upon your whitening goals we will provide you with your home whitening kit complete with custom trays and instructions for use.
Depending upon your teeth whitening goals, you will wear your trays either during the day or at night until the degree of whiteness has been reached. Throughout your teeth whitening treatment our Chesham dentist will be here to support you should you need assistance.
Yes, provided that you follow the instructions closely, you should reach your desired level of whiteness.
That’s a difficult question to answer as each person, and therefore each case is different. Although we can say that home-based dentist-led teeth whitening kits can whiten teeth up to 8 shades lighter, not everyone starts from a level playing field.
So, if your teeth are particularly stained or dark, you may not achieve the same degree of whiteness as someone who has mild staining. If this is the case, we can also assist with other cosmetic dentistry techniques such as dental veneers.
It is more expensive than many of the over-the-counter teeth whitening treatments or products that you can buy but that’s because everything is customised to your dental needs for a better, all-round whiteness.
Also, because this treatment is dentist-led, brands are legally able to contain considerably stronger bleaching agents than over the counter products and this results in a faster and more effective result.
If you are concerned about teeth whitening cost, you’ll be pleased to know that we provide interest-free, no deposit loans and payment plans allowing you to get the treatment you need today, without breaking the bank.
Don’t forget to ask us about this during your consultation!
Part of the problem with teeth whitening – particularly over-the-counter cosmetic dentistry products - are that they don’t take into account the current condition of your teeth. This is why our York House dentist provides you with a thorough dental examination before recommending teeth whitening solutions.
If you do have cavities or problem teeth that might cause discomfort during the teeth whitening process, we would recommend that these be dealt with first.
If your teeth are healthy, then you should feel little or no discomfort.
