Professional Teeth Whitening in Preston
A professional teeth whitening offers the quickest and most affordable way to completely revolutionize the appearance of your smiles! It’s simple, and cost-effective. Bleaching options could involve any of three options; in-surgery procedures, Tray bleaching and over-the-counter products.
Within each of these choices , there are variations in whitening techniques , type and concentration of material and length of treatment. When considering teeth whitening , our experienced dentists will consider the available literature on safety, efficacy , and cost , as each procedure has a different risk-benefit and a cost-benefit ratio.
We offer the very latest and most advanced teeth whitening treatment for smiles that have become dulled, stained and discoloured as a result of a great variety of factors.
What Causes Teeth to Discolour
Over time, our teeth can become dulled and darker or even stained by the artificial colorants and dyes or the natural tannins and pigments in the foods and beverages we consume. Coffee, tea, red wine, dark sodas, dark vegetables and tobacco-use are prime culprits for the discolouration of your teeth. The best candidates for tooth whitening are those whose teeth are stained yellow teeth .
All teeth do not reach the same whiteness, Rather each tooth has its maximum whiteness , beyond which it will not whiten, regardless of the technique or material used. Teeth among different patients do not bleach at the same rate. Some will bleach faster than others in a matter of days, while other patients may need an extended treatment time.
Brownish-stained teeth respond less well to treatment, while greyish or purple coloured stains may not be affected by tooth whitening at all. In this instance, another cosmetic dentistry treatment, such as porcelain veneers may be more appropriate.
Over The Counter Teeth Whitening Products !
Local pharmacies and supermarkets stock a staggering variety of teeth whitening products, so naturally one of them most popular questions our team of cosmetic dentists get asked is how our teeth whitening treatments differ from over-the-counter teeth whitening products.
Being qualified medical professionals, we are legally allowed to prescribe a bleaching agent that contains a much greater percentage of the safe & active whitening ingredient.
Without professional recommendation and supervision, the misuse of these teeth whitening products can do serious damage to your teeth and gums. This is why over-the-counter products, which aren’t prescribed and their administration not monitored, are legally required to contain a much smaller percentage of the bleaching agent.
At Home Tooth Bleaching
Our tray bleaching system offered in Preston by Dr. Kaviani – is another cosmetic dentistry option for whitening your smile. Normal teeth take 7 to 14 days to whiten, depending on the individual's tooth response . Tray bleaching overnight is the most practical for deep , heavy staining. If you choose at-home teeth whitening, Dr. Kaviani will begin by taking moulds of your teeth, from which she will create custom -fitting bleaching trays.
A safe and gentle tooth whitening solution is provided and you will then be expected to wear the trays for two hours everyday or overnight for approximately two weeks.
Although you can get over-the-counter whiteners without a dentist’s advice, if you over-use them or use them incorrectly, they can harm your tooth enamel and irritate your gum tissue. Also, over-bleaching can produce an undesirable permanent bluish hue, chalky whiteness or uneven results.
Teeth Whitening Side Effects ?
No whitening treatment should be prescribed without a proper dental examination, which generally includes dental x-rays and determines a diagnosis for the cause of the discolouration and also consideration should be given to the existing restorations, which will not bleach and other cosmetic alternative will be required.
Occasionally some teeth can exhibit slight sign of tooth sensitivity, which is a mild feeling of discomfort when eating or drinking anything hot or cold. If you already have sensitive teeth prior to whitening your teeth, we will provide you with a kit, which contains a tooth desensitiser, which you can use over the course of your treatment. This will help to keep you comfortable.
If you ever feel nervous about a side effect, simply contact us and we’ll advise you what to do straight away.
Teeth Whitening Candidates
Many people make great candidates for teeth whitening treatment. Professional teeth whitening is safe, gentle, and effective at removing deep stains and discolouration. Because teeth whitening is non-invasive, it is suitable for most patients. Candidates for teeth whitening include those with:
- Yellowed, stained, or discoloured teeth
- Feel embarrassed by yellowed teeth
- Don't have dental restorations
- Have healthy gums and teeth
Though teeth whitening can be performed on most people wishing to brighten their smiles, some people should not undergo whitening treatments. These include:
- Those with oral health problems
- Those with dental restorations
- Those with teeth sensitivity
- Pregnant or breast-feeding women
- Individuals who seek an unrealistic or blinding-white results
If you don’t have perfectly healthy teeth, it may still be possible to have a professional tooth whitening procedure. Because crowns, bridges, and other inorganic restorations are immune to the effects of tooth whitening, your natural teeth and restored teeth may not match after the treatment.
If uneven colour is likely to be a problem, we may be able to develop a strategy to get more consistent results. In some cases, new fillings or other restorations may be required. Even if whitening is not a viable option, your dentist offers many other ways to perfect your smile such as veneers or bonding.
