Teeth Whitening in ManchesterTeeth whitening is a great way to get your teeth looking much healthier and brighter
Our teeth discolour for a large number of reasons including our diet, food and drink we intake, oral hygiene and our social life style. Teeth whitening is a cosmetic dentistry solution which can help remove the colouring that you may have sustained through drinks you may enjoy to tooth decay. Below are some of the common examples which leads to the discolouration of teeth:
Diet- Drinks with strong artificial colourings such as tea, coffee, red wine and sweetened drinks can lead to discolouration.
Smoking- The tar from smoking causes teeth to turn a brownish or yellowish colour.
Tooth decay- tartar or metal fillings can also cause your teeth to discolour.
Trauma- Teeth have nerves and blood vessels inside of them and if they are damaged, they can cause the teeth to change in colour.
Medication- medication, specifically some antibiotics are able to cause the teeth to discolour over time. Children who take medication from an early age can sometimes experience this as they get older.Is Tooth Whitening Safe?
Under the supervision of our Manchester dentist and other clinical staff, whitening your teeth is completely safe to carry out. The special whitening gel includes carbamide peroxide as the primary ingredient to ensure the brightening of your smile and is readily used by millions and millions of people worldwide.How Long Does it Take to get Teeth White?
The whitening of teeth will depend entirely upon which of the two systems you decide to use. The in house system which is offered at the practice will generate results almost instantaneously. However, the home teeth whitening system may take a longer time to get the results you desire but this will be different from one person to another, so there is no need to worry if yours takes longer than someone else’s. Our staff would be more than happy to give you some further indication during a consultation so you know exactly how long it will take. To obtain the optimum natural whiteness of your teeth, we highly recommend that you opt for using both systems, the in house system and the home kits. Let our expert teeth whitening Manchester team restore that beautiful and natural looking smile that you desire.How Does The Home Teeth Whitening System Work?
To start off with, an impression is taken of your teeth so that a custom-made tray can be built for your individual bleaching procedure. After this a special whitening gel is then placed within these comfortable trays and fitted over your teeth. This guard is usually worn overnight. As the carbamide peroxide within the gel is broken down, oxygen enters the enamel and dentine of your teeth to give a bright, whitening effect by bleaching out discolouration, ensuring you have a healthy smile. The structure of your teeth is not changed at all by whitening, they are simply made whiter.Which in house system do you use?
We have researched the various teeth whitening Manchester systems that are currently available on the market to ensure that our patients are offered the very best teeth-whitening product in terms of results and safety. Here at Odental we have chosen to use the Zoom whitening system, in house, as this system guarantees to provide the very best whitening results for our customers.How Does it Work?
In house Zoom whitening undertaken by our Manchester dentists involves a power or lazer treatment which is directed on to your teeth. Zoom whitening is one of the simplest methods used to improve your smile. To complete both upper and lower teeth takes approximately one and a half hours, which compared to some other techniques is very quick. One of the many benefits of Zoom whitening is that your teeth become white instantaneously by up to 9+ shades, ensuring you have a healthy smile.Are There any Side Effects of Teeth Whitening?
Side effects are very unlikely, although a small number of people could experience increased sensitivity to heat or cold during the whitening process. However this effect is only temporary and can usually be treated with paracetamol or another sort of pain relief product. Usually, this sensitivity will disappear within 48 hours of the whitening process being carried out. Teeth whitening Manchester when prescribed by a dentist is a very reliable, safe and effective method of brightening your smile and completely harmless to the teeth. So you can be safe knowing that your smile can be beautified with no problems whatsoever.How Long Does Whitening Last For?
The results of whitening can be permanent although the duration of your whitening procedure will depend largely upon you and your oral hygiene. If you practice good oral hygiene and brush on a regular basis, especially after consuming staining foods or beverages, the results could last for years. However, if you consume coffee or wine and use tobacco on a regular basis, you may need periodic top up treatments of either of the systems available to ensure that you keep your bright smile. However the previous are highly discouraged if you want to keep the brightness of your teeth.
Surprising to many, the natural colour of our teeth is not in fact white. They are typically a shade of either yellow or grey, and this varies upon person to person and different ages. The process to get your teeth whiter is a relatively straight forward one but there are certain things that a patient has to do in order to help to maintain them as mentioned above.
