How our Cheshunt cosmetic dental practice can whiten your teeth in just one hour.
Have you ever looked in the mirror and noticed that your teeth are not white like they used to be when you were younger?
There are many reasons why this might be the case, with lifestyle choices such as smoking being one of the main factors. In fact, heavy smokers especially are likely to suffer from very badly stained teeth, to say nothing of other oral health issues such as gum disease!
Even non smokers can suffer from discoloured teeth though. This can be caused by other foods and drinks; red wine being a well known culprit. Even without these foods though, our teeth will naturally darken over time, the older we get.
No amount of brushing our teeth can prevent this darkening effect which gives our teeth a yellowing appearance. The only way to restore the whiteness of your teeth to the fullest extent is to have them professionally whitened at a cosmetic dentist such as the Lodge Dental Suite in Cheshunt.
This popular procedure can whiten your teeth up to six shades and give instant results. This is ideal for anyone who wants to look their best for a special occasion such as a wedding, for example.
Before the whitening procedure commences, we make sure that the patient’s gums and lips are fully protected. This is important as the whitening active ingredient can cause burning if this is not done correctly.
Once the soft tissues are protected, the whitening gel is then applied to the teeth and a special light used to activate the ingredient. This accelerates the rate at which the gel breaks down the darker molecules of our teeth.
The whole procedure takes just one hour, after which you will be able to see a big difference in the colour of your teeth and be able to leave our Cheshunt cosmetic dentist with a lovely new smile!
Whilst the Zoom system that we use contains ingredients that are designed to reduce any sensitivity, some patients do notice a little more of this straight after the procedure. It is best to avoid very hot or cold foods for a short time afterwards and the sensitivity of your teeth should soon return to normal.
