Dreaming of a White Christmas?

Christmas is such a magical time of year and many of us use the opportunity to spend time with family and friends as well as indulging in some Christmas cheer.

So why not make your Christmas and New Year extra special this year? Treat yourself to Teeth Whitening at Smile Dental Care. Remove the stains of 2019 and start the new decade with a bit more sparkle.

 Many people are unhappy with the discolouration of their teeth, which is why at Smile Dental Care we are finding that teeth whitening is increasingly popular. Following your initial examination, the dentist will establish if the whitening is suitable for you.

Your first visit following you consultation will be to take impressions of your teeth to construct your individual trays (this takes 1-2 weeks).The home method used at Smile Dental Care involves you carrying out the bleaching yourself by placing the gel in your trays and wearing them overnight for a course of two weeks.  We then offer you a whitening review to see how many shades you have glistened up the scale.

The Dangers of Unsafe Teeth Whitening?

Teeth whitening involves the use of hydrogen peroxide, which can be dangerous in unsafe quantities when it can cause serious burns. It is also not suitable for everyone either, such as those with evidence of tooth decay, gum inflammation or who suffer from sensitive teeth, which is why an intiial consultation is carried out.

That is why there are a number of rules in place to safeguard patients:

  • Teeth whitening must legally be administered by a qualified dental professional who has first examined the patient’s mouth.
  • Teeth whitening products and procedures using doses higher than 0.1% of hydrogen peroxide must only be sold to registered dental professionals for use in their practice.
  • Teeth whitening can also only be performed on those over 18 years old.
