Using teeth whitening as a perfect way to boost your smile

teeth-whitening-north-londonWe have successfully whitened hundreds of clients’ teeth at our North London dental spa. Read on to discover how you, too, could benefit from this perfect smile booster. . .

The need for teeth whitening

A brighter, whiter smile is number one on most people’s cosmetic dental wish-list. Some 64% of adults in the UK are unhappy with the current colour of their teeth. In many cases teeth whitening treatment can help. When you come into Denchic Dental Spa in North London, the first thing your cosmetic dentist will do is to establish what is behind your tooth staining.

The most common cause of tooth discolouration is visible plaque, affecting 66% of the population. If this is what has stained your teeth you need an appointment with our North London hygienist immediately, because plaque is very bad news for your health as well as for your smile’s appearance.

Your North London hygienist will remove all traces of plaque, then will help you to improve your home cleaning routine.

Teeth whitening is suitable for a number of common causes of tooth staining, including drinks such as tea or coffee, habits such as smoking, and temporary discolouration that can be a side-effect of some antibiotics and other medications.

The most important thing to remember about teeth whitening is that by law it can only be carried out on the prescription of a dentist. A hygienist or other professional may carry out the treatment on the dentist’s behalf.

North London teeth whitening

At our North London clinic we offer three teeth whitening options. The first is home whitening, which takes approximately two weeks to complete and involves wearing whitening trays overnight. The second is power whitening, which is carried out by your dentist here at our North London clinic and takes an hour. The final option combines the two.

Alternatives to metal braces for teeth straightening

There’s an obvious problem with metal braces for straightening adult teeth, and it’s the fact that they are so, well, obvious. At Denchic Dental Spa in North London we appreciate that the concept of wearing a fixed metal appliance for months on end can be a significant barrier to teeth straightening for many adults, which is why we are pleased to offer our clients a number of more subtle options.

cosmetic-braces-north-londonAt our North London dental centre we are always eager to point out that straightening your teeth doesn’t just benefit the appearance of your smile – it also boosts your health. Simply put, better aligned teeth are easier to keep clean, with fewer areas where plaque can gather. As long as you visit your North London dentist and hygienist regularly, and brush and floss efficiently at home, straightening your teeth will lower your risk of both dental decay and gum disease.

North London braces and aligners

Denchic Dental Spa in North London provides treatment with both fixed braces and removable aligners to clients who want to straighten their teeth. When you come in for a consultation, your dentist will perform a thorough clinical examination to help determine the best course of treatment to suit your needs.

Depending on your requirements and personal treatment preferences, your North London dentist may recommend:

Six Month Smiles

Six Month Smiles are cosmetic braces that work both quickly and discreetly to improve the position of the social six front teeth – those that show when you smile. This means that they can work in as little as half a year.

These braces comprise clear ceramic brackets and tooth-coloured nickel-titanium wires, meaning that they blend in well with the natural colour of your teeth.

Invisalign

This popular alternative to fixed braces involves the use of a series of clear, removable aligners to gradually reposition your teeth. They have next to no impact on your daily life, because you can take them out to eat, drink, and clean.

Inman Aligner

The fastest tooth straightening option at our North London dental centre, the Inman Aligner’s unique design enables it to correct issues with the front teeth in six to 18 weeks.

Using teeth whitening as the perfect smile booster

Teeth whitening, when provided by a cosmetic dentist, is a fast, effective, and safe way to remove everyday stains from your teeth. At Denchic Dental Spa in North London we offer a number of whitening treatments to suit all needs. Treatment times vary between two weeks and just one hour, making teeth whitening the perfect way to treat yourself and boost your smile before a special occasion such as a wedding, family party, or holiday.

teeth-whitening-north-londonWhy we need teeth whitening

The most common cause of tooth staining is visible dental plaque, which is bad news not just for the appearance of your smile but also for your health, as plaque causes gum disease and tooth decay, the leading causes of tooth loss.

Dental plaque is best tackled by a visit to the hygienist at our North London clinic, who will not only remove all traces of plaque but will also work with you to improve your home brushing and flossing routine to help stop the problem from happening again.

Even well looked-after teeth can become stained through a number of lifestyle factors. It is here that teeth whitening comes into play; stains such as those caused by red wine, coffee, nicotine, and some medications can all be removed by whitening treatment, resulting in a beautiful, brighter, whiter smile.

Teeth whitening involves the use of special dental bleaching gel to gently permeate the teeth and lift these common stains. A dentist must always be consulted for whitening treatment because it should only be carried out on a healthy mouth, and because other unlicensed whitening providers will not have expert knowledge of oral health. Unregulated whitening treatment can cause serious damage and discomfort, and must be avoided.

North London teeth whitening

At Denchic in North London we offer three options for teeth whitening treatment:

1) Home whitening – Carried out over a fortnight at home, this option involves using custom-made mouth trays that you wear overnight.

2) Zoom power whitening – Power whitening involves a single, hour-long session with a cosmetic dentist here at our North London clinic.

3) Enlighten combination whitening – This option begins at home, with a final in-chair session.

teeth-whitening-north-londonThe secret to a dazzling white smile

Everybody dreams of a beautifully bright, white smile, but unfortunately lifestyle factors can often get in the way. Whilst failing to keep up with your dental hygiene can lead to brown staining of the teeth caused by plaque, even those with an excellent hygiene routine can find their teeth are stained by a number of causes – dietary factors including tea, coffee, and red wine are particular culprits, as is smoking. Some medicines and medicated mouth washes cause temporary staining of the teeth.

Stained and discoloured teeth can make you feel self-conscious, and cause you to lose confidence in your smile. At Denchic Dental Spa in North London, we believe everybody deserves a beautiful smile. That’s why we are pleased to offer teeth whitening treatment – when prescribed by a dentist, a predictable, safe, and quick way to get rid of stains and restore your teeth to naturally bright whiteness.

Enlighten Evolution Whitening
