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.
