Teeth whitening: the perfect boost to your smile

Teeth whitening is one of the most popular cosmetic dental treatments available. At Denchic North London dental spa we offer several options for clients who would like whiter teeth, and as well as being a great standalone treatment we believe that whitening is an excellent addition to other treatments such as cosmetic orthodontics, leaving you with a smile you can’t wait to show off.

teeth-whiteningWe offer free teeth whitening consultations at our North London clinic, during which one of our cosmetic team will examine your teeth and gums to ensure you are in full dental health, and will talk you through all the treatment options so you can choose the best one to fit your needs.

As with all cosmetic procedures, teeth whitening should only be carried out on a healthy mouth, to reduce the chances of side-effects such as sensitivity. Should your dentist spot any health issues, these will be treated first – so do remember to factor this into your plans if you want to whiten your teeth for a special occasion.

Teeth whitening is one of the fastest ways a dentist can make over your smile. Depending on which option you pick, treatment time ranges from a single, hour-long session with a cosmetic dentist here at our North London clinic to a maximum of four weeks at home. Factors that influence treatment time include the type and amount of staining, and your personal preferences.

Here are the three options Denchic offer for teeth whitening in North London:

Home whitening

Using custom-made lightweight plastic mouth trays and whitening gel, you carry out this treatment yourself at home (under your dentist’s direction). Results will be seen in between two and four weeks.

Phillips Zoom Whitening

Carried out in our North London clinic by your dentist, this option takes one or two hours.

Enlighten Evolution Whitening

This combination treatment is fast and promises near zero sensitivity.

Cosmetic braces and aligners: the subtler way to a gorgeous smile

Braces were once considered exclusively for children and teenagers. However, at our Denchic Dental Spa in North London, we have seen an increasing demand for adult orthodontic treatment. We understand that the thought of wearing standard metal braces may not be appealing to many adults, which is why we have invested in discreet orthodontics and now offer several ways to straighten your teeth without everybody knowing you are having treatment.

Straight teeth without a glint of metal

cosmetic bracesThere are two options available at our North London dental practice for adults who want straighter teeth: tooth-coloured braces and clear aligners. The best option for your case will depend on a number of factors, including the type and amount of correction needed, how fast you want treatment to be, and your personal preference.

When you come into our North London practice for an orthodontic consultation, your dentist will examine the current position of your teeth and will assess how much correction is required. They will then run you through your treatment options, so that you can make an educated choice going forward.

Treatment options

Six Month Smiles

Six Month Smiles are cosmetic braces designed to work quickly by focussing on your front teeth – those visible when you smile. They comprise tooth-coloured wires and clear brackets, meaning that they will blend in with the natural colour of your teeth and not be glaringly obvious.

Inman Aligner

The Inman Aligner is an all-in-one clear aligner that is useful in cases of adult relapse, and typically takes between six and 16 weeks to work. You are able to take your aligner out for short periods, to clean and to brush your teeth, and to eat.

Invisalign

Invisalign is a series of clear aligners that fit over your teeth and gently guide them into a new position. Again, these are removable for short periods, so will have minimal impact on your lifestyle.

Teeth whitening: options for brighter, whiter teeth

Teeth whitening is one of the most popular treatment requests from a cosmetic dentist. At Denchic Dental Spa in North London we offer three options for patients interested in whitening treatment – home whitening, power whitening here in the practice, or a combination of both.

Why you need teeth whitening treatment

denchic-teeth-whiteningThink about what your teeth go through in an average day and it’s no surprise that they get stained. Drinks including tea, coffee, and red wine can all leave stains on the teeth, as can habits such as smoking, some medicines and medical conditions. Teeth can also become discoloured as part of the natural ageing process.

Teeth whitening treatment, when carried out by a cosmetic dentist or a hygienist on a dentist’s prescription, is a safe and predictable way to remove common stains.

How it works

Teeth whitening involves the use of special dental bleaching gel to lighten the colour of the teeth, getting rid of everyday stains and leaving your teeth several shades brighter. Depending on which option you choose, you can have a guaranteed B1 shade of whiteness – which is the brightest shade available in the UK.

This guaranteed B1 shade is only available with the Enlighten Evolution teeth whitening system. Enlighten Evolution also offers close to zero sensitivity, which can be a temporary side effect of some other whitening systems. This system involves a two-step process, with the first part taking place at home, followed by a session here in our North London spa.

We also offer Zoom power whitening, which takes place exclusively here in our North London practice. Your dentist puts whitening gel on your teeth and uses a special light to activate it. This option typically lasts just one hour.

The third option is home teeth whitening, which involves using custom-made whitening trays and gel at home. You place a small amount of gel in the trays and wear them overnight for approximately two weeks.

Do I need braces to straighten my teeth?

Braces are an excellent way to straighten your teeth, but for many adults the thought of a mouth full of metal is off-putting. Fortunately, Denchic Dental Spa in North London offers some great alternative options – ways that you can straighten your teeth without the whole world needing to know about it.

denchicDiscreet orthodontics has seen huge expansion in recent years, with many devices – both braces and aligners – being used by dentists and orthodontists to straighten teeth and correct alignment issues without having to wear standard metal appliances.

If you are interested in discreet orthodontic treatment, why not book a consultation with one of the skilled team here at our North London practice? Your dentist will carefully examine your teeth and your bite and will then run through the relevant treatment options, depending on your clinical needs, your personal preferences and your lifestyle.

The discreet orthodontic options available at our North London dental practice include:

Six Month Smiles

These cosmetic braces are a thoroughly modern method of correcting aesthetic alignment problems. Based on traditional brace principles, Six Month Smiles have an average treatment time of just six months, because they focus on the front six to eight teeth – those on display when you smile.

These braces are made from tooth-coloured wires and clear brackets, so blend in with the natural shade of your teeth.

Inman Aligner

This single clear aligner is an alternative to braces, and can be used to correct alignment issues with the top and bottom front teeth. The Inman Aligner has a fast treatment time – between six and 16 weeks – and is removable, so you can take it out for short periods, helping to maintain good dental hygiene during treatment.

Invisalign

Invisalign comprises a series of removable, clear aligners, which fit comfortably over your teeth and guide them into a new position. Your aligners will not be obvious in everyday life, and they can correct a range of orthodontic concerns.

Teeth whitening: the perfect way to boost your smile

Teeth whitening is one of the most popular treatment options in cosmetic dentistry – and it’s easy to see why. At Denchic Dental Spa in North London, we have helped many patients regain confidence in their smiles – and with it boost their self-esteem – with the help of whitening treatment. Read on to discover how you can join them. . .

Why teeth get stained

teeth whiteningThink of what your teeth go through in an average day and it’s not difficult to see why they can become stained. Dietary factors play a major part, with drinks including tea, coffee, red wine and cola being particular culprits, as do habits such as smoking. Some medicines and medicated mouthwashes can cause temporary staining of the teeth as a side-effect, and some medical conditions also result in tooth staining. Many people also find that as they get older, their teeth loose some of their natural bright white lustre. Teeth whitening treatment from a dentist is an excellent way to get that brightness back.

How treatment works

We offer three options for patients interested in teeth whitening at our North London practice: home whitening, power whitening here in the dental spa, and a combination of both. When you come into the practice for a consultation, your dentist will talk you through the options so that you can decide which will work best for you.

Whichever you choose, the basics are the same; teeth whitening involves the use of special dental bleaching gel to gently remove everyday stains from your teeth. When carried out by a dentist, or a hygienist on a dentist’s prescription, this is a safe and effective method of brightening up your smile.

Home whitening involves placing a small amount of gel in custom-made tooth trays and wearing them overnight for about two weeks. Power whitening takes place here in the comfort of our North London practice, and takes just one hour.

How cosmetic braces can revolutionise your smile

Braces remain the best way to straighten teeth. At Denchic Dental Spa in North London, we understand that adult patients who dream of straighter teeth may not want to wear obvious metal braces for long periods. That’s why we offer several cosmetic orthodontic options to improve the appearance of your smile without the whole world having to know about it.

cosmetic-bracesCosmetic braces are designed first and foremost to change the aesthetic appearance of your smile. However, they can also have health benefits, as straighter teeth are healthier teeth because they are easier to keep clean, meaning that there is less chance of plaque bacteria building up and so reducing your chances of developing gum disease and tooth decay.

At our North London dental practice, we offer several discreet orthodontic options, both fixed braces and removable aligners. When you come in for your initial consultation, your dentist will examine your teeth and will discuss all the appropriate treatment options, so that you can choose the best one to suit both your needs and your lifestyle.

Here at Denchic in North London, we offer treatment with Six Month Smiles for patients who opt for cosmetic braces. As the name suggests, Six Month Smiles have an average treatment time of just six months (compared with up to 24 months for standard orthodontic appliances). They work so quickly because they focus on the front six to eight teeth – those that show when you smile.

As well as working more quickly than standard orthodontic devices, Six Month Smiles are also highly discreet, because they comprise clear brackets and tooth-coloured wires, so they blend in with the natural colour of your teeth.

Because of the shortened treatment times, patients who opt for treatment with Six Month Smiles will not experience the concerns about maintaining good dental hygiene during treatment that some standard orthodontic patients worry about – although you should still visit the hygienist for advice on cleaning around your braces.

Teeth whitening: the ideal way to remove everyday stains from your teeth

Teeth whitening treatment is among the quickest and most popular options in cosmetic dentistry. At Denchic Dental Spa in North London, we offer several different options for whitening. Your dentist will be able to help you decide the best method to suit your wants and needs, and fit around your lifestyle.

How teeth whitening works

teeth whitening treatmentWhitening treatment uses special dental bleaching gel to remove the everyday stains that build up on our teeth. Even people with good oral hygiene find their teeth can become stained, thanks to drinks such as red wine, tea and coffee, habits such as smoking and as a side-effect of some medicines and medicated mouthwashes.

When carried out by a dentist, teeth whitening treatment is a safe and reliable way to get rid of these stains, leaving your smile several shades brighter.

Why do I need to see a dentist first?

Teeth whitening should only be carried out on healthy teeth, to reduce the chances of sensitivity and other problems. The products used at our North London dental practice have all been subject to extensive testing and are entirely safe when used properly.

Whitening products available from the internet and from the high street may not have been tested to such high standards. While some will simply have no effect, others can actually be harmful and could damage your teeth and gums.

What are my treatment options?

At Denchic Dental Spa in North London, we offer three treatment options for teeth whitening. Home whitening uses custom-made teeth whitening trays and gel. You put a little gel in the trays and wear them overnight for approximately two weeks.

Zoom teeth whitening requires just one session with your dentist here at our North London practice. A special lamp is used to activate the gel while you sit back and relax. Enlighten Evolution whitening combines a practice session with home whitening and guarantees a B1 shade result.

Can braces straighten my teeth without everyone knowing?

Braces are the most commonly used and most effective way to straighten teeth. At Denchic Dental Spa in North London, we understand that many adults who want straighter teeth don’t want to wear traditional orthodontic devices that, while very efficient, are also very noticeable.

discreet orthodontics treatmentFortunately, there are modern alternatives. At our North London dental practice, our team of cosmetic dentists offer discreet orthodontics treatment using near-invisible braces and clear aligners. These are an ideal way to straighten your teeth without the world knowing about it.

Discreet cosmetic braces

At Denchic Dental Spa we offer cosmetic orthodontic treatment using Six Month Smiles. This combines ultra-modern discreet braces with the latest innovations and techniques in orthodontics, enabling your dentist to improve the appearance of your smile quickly and almost invisibly.

Six Month Smiles braces comprise tooth-coloured wires and transparent brackets, meaning that they blend seamlessly into your mouth.

As the name suggests, average treatment time is just six months (in some cases it may be even shorter). Six Month Smiles work so quickly because they focus on the “social six” teeth – those at the front of your mouth that show when you smile. Because of the reduced treatment time, Six Month Smiles are often both less expensive and more comfortable than traditional braces.

After treatment is complete you will need to wear a retainer – either a traditional, removable retainer or a fixed, bonded retainer – to ensure your teeth stay in their new position. Your dentist will recommend the best option for you when you come into our North London practice.

Clear aligners

At Denchic Dental Spa in North London, we offer two of the most popular types of clear aligners for patients who want straighter teeth: the Inman Aligner and Invisalign.

The Inman Aligner is a single device that can move your teeth quickly – in as little as eight weeks. Invisalign comprises a series of aligners, with treatment times ranging from eight to 18 months.

Treat yourself to teeth whitening to boost your smile – and your confidence

Teeth whitening is a very popular cosmetic dental treatment. At Denchic Dental Spa in North London, we offer three options for whitening treatment – you can have it here at the practice with a skilled cosmetic dentist, can carry out the treatment yourself at home, or can have a combination of both options.

Why is teeth whitening so popular?

teeth whiteningThink of what your teeth go through in one day, and it’s hardly surprising that they become stained, even with a good oral health routine. Coffee, tea, cola and red wine can stain teeth, as can habits such as smoking, plus certain medications.

Teeth whitening carried out by a dentist is a proven, safe way to remove these stains and boost the brightness of your smile. It’s also one of the quickest cosmetic dental procedures available – depending which option you choose, you could have brighter, whiter teeth in as little as one hour. No wonder, then, it’s such a popular cosmetic treatment option!

Why do I need to see a dentist for teeth whitening?

There are many products available over the counter or on the internet that claim to whiten teeth. However, by law teeth whitening should only be carried out by a qualified dentist or hygienist. The products and techniques used by the team at our North London practice have been subject to rigorous testing and are proven to be both effective and safe. Products available on the high street, in beauty salons and online may not have been tested to this degree, and can in some cases damage your teeth and gums.

The cosmetic team at Denchic in North London have also been fully trained to provide teeth whitening treatment. This treatment should only be carried out on healthy teeth, so your clinician will carefully assess your oral health and, if necessary, treat any problems that they find before starting whitening treatment.
