We have seen a glimpse of the sun and spring is officially in the air - now is the perfect time to brighten up your smile!
Here at Blyton Dental we believe that your smile is one of your best assets, but lifestyle and food choices can stain your teeth, and affect the overall appearance of your smile. Red wine, coffee, tea, cola, tomato-based sauces, curry and beetroot are some of the culprits of everyday life that impact the colour and brightness of your teeth.
If you are unhappy with your smile it really can have an impact on your personal and professional life. Whilst it is obvious that smoking can discolour your teeth, did you know that brushing them too hard and simply ageing can have a negative effect on the appearance of your teeth. Why not give your smile a spring makeover and enjoy a more youthful appearance with a tooth whitening treatment?
Teeth whitening can be the most minimally invasive cosmetic dentistry and despite the myth doesn’t have to be expensive. At Blyton Dental we offer Home whitening systems for a very affordable cost.
Blyton Dental is also an Enlighten® dentist. For a guaranteed whiter smile Enlighten whitening can leave your teeth up to 16 shades brighter! The Enlighten system works slightly differently by combining home whitening and 'in office' bleaching of the teeth. Due to this dual approach, we can guarantee an end result of brighter whiter teeth.
The materials used in Enlighten Whitening are safe and have been used in dentistry for over 100 years.
Our dentists will create bespoke whitening trays which take approximately 10 days to manufacture by the Enlighten laboratory. The clear trays are thin and comfortable and must be worn in bed for 14 nights. On the 15th day of the whitening process you will visit your dentist for a final treatment which will take 40 minutes. You may experience some sensitivity during treatment and your dentist can give you easy to use desensitising swabs which will work immediately.
Results can last indefinitely with some very simple maintenance, for example wearing the trays for 1 night every other month and continuing to brush with Tooth Serum will also prolong results.
A tooth whitening treatment from a dentist is a simple cosmetic treatment, it will give your smile a renewed sparkle and will undoubtably help improve your self-confidence. Teeth whitening removes stains from the enamel and works by allowing a very small amount of bleaching gel to come in to contact with the teeth. The gel then reacts with the surface of the tooth, gently and safely removing stains.
Teeth discolouration responds extremely well to the Enlighten treatment leaving you with beautiful teeth that are many shades whiter! The treatment works on natural teeth, although the degree and speed of whitening depends upon the initial colour of the teeth. If you've previously had crowns, veneers or fillings, these teeth will not respond to whitening. However, if this is the case, we can discuss other options to create that perfect smile.
Teeth whitening is always best done under a dentist’s care - they know how to safely and effectively whiten teeth. Reading the ingredients and instructions on a label can’t tell you everything you need to know about a whitening product. What if you have a bad reaction to some of the chemicals in over the counter whitening treatment?
With the cost of tooth whitening treatments becoming more competitive than ever, there’s never been a better time to give your teeth a makeover. Tooth whitening is just one of the cosmetic options that we offer at Blyton Dental.
Teeth whitening is an excellent investment in your smile. If you would like to discuss the treatment options at Blyton Dental, our friendly reception team will be happy to arrange a free consultation with one of our dentists. Add some sunshine to your smile!
