Are you self-conscience about smiling due to have having yellow or stained-looking teeth? If so, then you might wish to consider a Teeth Whitening treatment? At Barhill Dental Clinic, we offer a range of teeth whitening treatments, which will not only eliminate stains, but will also leave you with a dazzling smile, you would normally only see in Hollywood.
Teeth naturally darken and yellow over time and this process is made worse by smoking or drinking tea, coffee or wine. Teeth whitening is a cosmetic dentistry procedure that lightens teeth and helps to remove stains and discolouration. It is the most popular treatment by both men and women alike and the treatments available range from one-hour one-time dental visits to take-home do-it-yourself kits. Teeth whitening is popular because it can significantly improve the appearance of your teeth at much less cost and inconvenience than other techniques.
After a short visit to the dentist, an impression will be taken so that the clear, flexible plastic trays can be made. All that you will need to do is to apply the special ‘Tooth Serum’ to your teeth using these trays and wear them for one hour at a time over the course of 14 nights in the comfort of your own home. On the 15th day, you will be required to visit the dentist again for one hour deep bleaching session to achieve the very best results. Once the desired tooth colour has been achieved, it is recommended that you regularly use the gel and trays to ensure that those stains and blemished don’t return.
After your teeth have been whitened, your dentist will recommend that you avoid
dark-coloured or Citrus fruits for a few weeks afterwards, (due to their acidic or discolouration properties), and should be avoided particularly last thing before bed. If you must eat them, then brush and rinse your mouth thoroughly after eating
Apart from teeth whitening foods to avoid among liquids and solids, cigarette smoking should also be completely avoided since its nicotine content stains the teeth and blackens them. Overall, stick to a healthy diet and drink a lot of water. This is good for your body and bones. Take a lot of multivitamins and plenty of protein to keep your teeth strong.
