How to get a brighter smile with teeth whitening and more

Teeth whitening Bournemouth has become a popular choice over the years, with many people keen to get a brighter and whiter smile. At Queens Park Dental Team, we offer a choice of treatments that help our patients to restore their smile to its former glory. These include teeth whitening Bournemouth, white fillings and veneers. This guide explores these treatments so that patients can choose the right one for their needs.


Teeth whitening

Teeth whitening Bournemouth is arguably the easiest way to improve the smile. It is non-invasive and involves a minimal amount of time spent in our surgery. In just two appointments, the patient can have the tools they need to start whitening their teeth professionally in the comfort of their own home.

The first appointment involves us checking to ensure that the patient is a suitable candidate for teeth whitening. There are some cases, for example, when people have very receded gums or a lot of sensitivity in their teeth, that are not recommended to have their teeth whitened. However, most patients can go ahead after a quick consultation with us. If we agree to go along with this treatment, then we create records of the shape and position of the teeth.

We then use the records to create trays that fit the patient perfectly. We issue these at the second appointment, along with a special whitening solution. The patient then wears the trays over their teeth alongside the whitening gel when they go to bed at night. They repeat this process every night until the treatment is complete. This usually takes two or three weeks.

White fillings

Having dark coloured fillings, especially if they are visible when smiling or laughing, can affect a person’s confidence. Even if they have managed to keep the rest of the smile white and bright, the patient may feel that these fillings are a bit of a blight on their dentition. We can replace these old fillings with new ones that match the rest of the teeth. We can tailor them to the individual patient and ensure that they match the other teeth as closely as possible.


If a person has stained and yellowed teeth that are also misshapen or badly positioned, then they may benefit from having treatment with veneers. Veneers are basically covers for the teeth. These covers are made from porcelain that is very thin and has been shaped to fit the patient perfectly. They can hide a multitude of flaws and give the patient a smile that is white, even and uniform.

The teeth can go from a source of low confidence to a Hollywood gleam in just two or three appointments. Some people get veneers as an alternative to braces. One of the biggest advantages to doing this is that they do not have to wait for several months or even a few years to get the smile they want. Once the two or three veneer appointments have been completed, the bright and even new smile is in place with no more time needed.
