Whiter Teeth For The New Year?

Whiter Teeth For The New Year?

Improving your smile safely and effectively at Blue Sky Dental in Chelmsford.

Hopefully, all of our Chelmsford patients have had a happy Christmas and New Year and are raring to go in 2018.

Whilst the festive period may have been busy and, perhaps, a little hectic; as things start to wind down, many of us will start to think about what we hope to achieve this new year.

It is probably no coincidence that our cosmetic dental team receive an increase in enquiries about teeth whitening procedures at this time of year. We are always happy to help our patients to achieve a new level of whiteness with our safe and effective home teeth whitening system.

Why safe?

Whilst a teeth whitening treatment is not inherently dangerous, it can be damaging in the wrong hands. It is now illegal for anyone but a qualified dental professional to perform this procedure. Previously, some inexperienced people were setting up teeth whitening clinics, often using much too strong solutions of bleach to whiten teeth. This could be very painful and also potentially damaging to the teeth.

Our ‘at home’ system includes custom made trays, in which the bleach is placed and which are produced from impressions of each patient’s teeth. Not only does this make them more comfortable, but also greatly reduces the risk of any burning of the soft tissue from the whitening agent.

Whilst it is now illegal to perform this procedure if you are not a dentist, people are still being prosecuted for this. Never risk your teeth in this way; instead talk to our Chelmsford team about our whitening treatment.

How effective?

Our treatment can be designed to suit the changes that you wish to make. Some patients aim for the bright ‘Hollywood’ smile, whilst others are happy for an improvement of just a few shades of whiteness to be achieved. The reasons for wanting whiter teeth are wide and varied and some patients prefer the results to be more discreet. Providing that you are a suitable candidate for this procedure, and that your teeth are not so heavily stained as to require veneers to be fitted instead, most patients should expect to see an improvement in the whiteness of their teeth by up to eight shades.

We will discuss these issues with you at your initial consultation and also explain more about the procedure. This is also an excellent opportunity to ask any questions that you might have about this, or any other cosmetic dental treatment.
