Nothing gives a confidence boost like a pearly white smile. At Apex Dental Care, we believe that a healthy smile is crucial to improve your well-being and self-esteem. It’s why we provide teeth whitening as part of our cosmetic dentistry treatments. The procedure is recommended for patients who have food or beverage stains on their teeth. Teeth whitening treatments at Apex Dental Care take about 90 minutes on average and are performed by our experienced London dentists. Although we recommend getting the procedure done every 12 to 18 months, it can vary depending on lifestyle factors. We have a team of expert dentists and hygienists with years of expertise in performing dental treatments. It’s how we ensure great care and patient satisfaction.
Prior to teeth whitening treatment in London, we recommend that patients see our expert hygienist to remove any remaining plaque. This makes the teeth more receptive to the whitening treatment. Also, it’s important that any oral health problems like decay are addressed before moving forward.
• Your dentist will use a cheek retractor to expose the teeth while protecting the gums from the whitening gel.
• They will apply the hydrogen peroxide gel to the teeth and leave it for 40 minutes.
• A UV light is used over the whitening gel to enhance the results
• Your dentist will rinse off the gel to check your teeth to see if there’s a need for further bleaching.
After the treatment, your teeth may appear whiter due to dehydration, so you’ll need to wait a few days to see the new colour. If you’d prefer your teeth to look whiter, we recommend consulting your dentist to book a follow-up appointment.
Even if you brush your teeth regularly, diet and lifestyle habits can have a major impact on their colour. Beverages like coffee, tea, and wine can stain the teeth, while activities such as smoking can lead to discolouration. Our teeth naturally have a slightly yellow colour as their whiteness fades over time. While this gradual change in colour doesn’t impact your oral health, it can make you conscious of your appearance. You may become habitual of covering your mouth while laughing or choose to smile with your mouth closed. At Apex Dental Care, we want our patients to feel the confidence of having a bright, white smile. Teeth whitening treatments in London are a great option to improve your smile for an upcoming event, job interview, or just even out the colour.
