Having stains on your teeth can mean that you won’t want to show off your smile. This is a great shame as your smile is a vital social tool that is frequently used – often subconsciously – to put other people at ease. Staining gets more likely with the passing years and can be especially likely in people who drink tea and coffee and red wine as well as those who smoke. There is no need to live with stains on your teeth, however; you can get rid of them with help from your Molesey dentist.
Essentially teeth whitening procedures usually comprise teeth bleaching. This is where a bleach-like substance is applied to teeth in order that the stains are removed from the surfaces of the teeth. Usually this substance comes in the form of a gel and it has to be kept on teeth for a certain amount of time so that it can do its work. This is usually achieved by the use of special trays.
Teeth whitening kits are available from many retail outlets and the work can be carried out by you in your own time. Although many of these kits are effective, sometimes the results can be uneven because the trays in which the gel is placed to be worn over teeth are mass produced in one size only and so the coverage of the gel is not always perfect.
Better is to get your dentist to make you a set of trays to wear on your teeth. These trays will be tailored to the shape of your mouth and so the coverage of the gel will be optimum. Teeth bleaching can also be combined with the application of special curing lights.
The benefits and joys of cosmetic dentistry are everywhere to be seen in Kingston-Upon-Thames; on billboards, at the cinema, on the TV and in newspapers and magazines- everyone is smiling with confidence these days, and you can too. All you have to do is pop into your dentist and discuss what’s best for you and that puts you up there with the best of them. If your teeth are in good shape already, you may only require simple ‘touch-ups’ to restore your smile with a little cosmetic bonding. Bleaching is big business now too; home bleaching kits can be purchased at most retail outlets or you can get it done by your dentist. Make-over shows have made laser bleaching very fashionable too. However, if you suffer from severe wear and tear and staining, veneers are fantastic at covering up a multitude of sins in the mouth like receding gums or cracks and chips, giving back the length and sheen to your teeth you once had. Gums can be shaped and contoured to remove with laser treatment with the least amount of damage to the mouth and to get rid of that ‘gummy’ smile. Even losing teeth is no longer a problem anymore; there’s a range of bridges, crowns and dental implants available to plug the holes, put that smile back on your face and give you oodles of confidence to get back in the mix of society.
As we get older our teeth will start to lose their natural colour. A lifetime of eating foods rich in colouring stains the enamel meaning that we lose the naturally white appearance of our teeth. This affects some people more then others and is also dependant on lifestyle choices. Some food and drinks such as coffee and red wine stain teeth quicker, as does the use of any kind of tobacco product.
Fortunately there is a way to slow down discolouration and even reverse it by undergoing tooth whitening procedures. This in involves bleaching the teeth to remove stains and make them appear whiter. This is a relatively simple cosmetic dentistry procedure that is practised by most dentists in surgery. Some dentists will also offer take home whitening kits with prepared treatments in trays so that the patient can whiten their teeth in the comfort of their own home.
The active ingredient in teeth whitening is a peroxide bleaching agent. The strength of the peroxide in the whitening gels varies from three to 30 per cent, depending on the level of bleaching needed and who is carrying out the procedure. Greater strengths of peroxide can cause damage to soft tissues so are only really used by dentists in surgery. Patients with home treatments will have lower strength kits.
When a dentists is performing an in-house whitening procedure they can use larger strength peroxides because they are also able to use protect equipment to cover the patient’s soft tissue areas. Although most home whitening kits have a lower strength of peroxide, some kits that can be purchased off the internet can be very strong so it is always advised to consult your dentist before applying any whitening gels to your teeth.
Just like some people’s teeth discolour at faster rates than others, some patients respond to whitening much better. For some patients, the results can be dramatic whereas for others, after several treatments the teeth will only appear slightly whiter. It really depends on the nature of your teeth and the type and strength of gel you are using.
Tooth whitening is a very popular procedure and one that if performed safely is relatively pain-free. Some patients experience sensitive teeth for a few days after whitening but this usually passes without any further problems. Consult your Molesey dentist today about having the natural colour of your teeth restored.
