There are several reasons why you might choose to get your teeth whitened. Every person is different, and just as our hair and skin colour vary, so do our teeth. Very few people have brilliant-white teeth, but many crave this super-sparkling look. Our teeth can also become more discoloured as we get older. They can also be stained on the surface by food and drinks such as tea, coffee, red wine or cola. Smoking can also stain teeth.
Tartar can also affect the colour of your teeth. Some people may have staining under the surface, which can be caused by certain antibiotics or by tiny cracks in the teeth which take up stains. All of these reasons and many more are why more and more people are choosing teeth whitening in Bournemouth.
Professional bleaching at Queens Park Dental Team is our usual method of teeth whitening in Bournemouth. Our dental team will be able to tell you if you are suitable for the treatment, and will supervise throughout. Firstly, our teeth whitening professional,Hannah Neve, will put a rubber shield or a gel on your gums to protect them. Hannah will then apply the whitening product to your teeth, using a specially made tray which fits perfectly into your mouth.
For your teeth whitening in Bournemouth, our active ingredient in the product is hydrogen peroxide. As this is broken down, oxygen gets into the enamel on the teeth and the tooth colour become slighter. The process is completely pain free and very simple to achieve the results you require.
White Dental Beauty home whitening treatment
For your teeth whitening in Bournemouth we use White Dental Beauty system for our home-based teeth whitening treatment. After a consultation with Hannah Neve, we will take impressions of your teeth. From this custom-made trays can be made to exactly fit your mouth.
Hannah will then provide you with White Dental Beauty’s teeth whitening gel. This gel will help keep the teeth hydrated while having a pleasing minty flavour that will leave your mouth feeling really fresh after your treatment.
We want to help you get a beautiful smile in time for your special day, whether that be your graduation, your engagement party, your wedding day or some other important event. Happy occasions such as these are full of laughter and joy and it’s good to know that you can smile with confidence. Achieving a healthy white smile may involve little more than tooth whitening. In Bournemouth at Queens Park Dental, we offer a “home” system of whitening whereby we take an impression of your teeth in order to fabricate a custom tray to fit your mouth perfectly, and provide you with the whitening gel to use at home. It only requires two visits to our clinic and in most cases excellent results are achieved within 2 to 3 weeks.
Tooth whitening is an effective way of lightening healthy teeth a few shades but it doesn’t last for ever and will need ‘touching up’ in order to keep a constant level of whiteness. Thanks to our ‘home’ tray system we can supply you with additional gel to use as and when necessary. However, tooth whitening does have its limitations and isn’t a good option if your teeth are severely stained, blemished, cracked, or chipped. In this instance you might want to consider porcelain veneers. This treatment involves removing a little of the tooth enamel from the front of the tooth and covering it with a really thin veneer, almost like having a false nail applied. Being made from porcelain, we can match its colour to your other team for a seamless finish. It needs to be noted, however, that this is a permanent treatment and cannot be reversed. Veneers if cared for can last up to 10 years and will then need replacing.
Finally, you may want to consider crowns. In Bournemouth at Queens Park Dental we only ever extract teeth as a last resort and will often use crowns to restore badly decayed or damaged teeth. Crowns offer strength and support which a filling can’t and can be colour matched to your other teeth for a realistic effect.
