The best teeth whitening in Putney

Thanks to social media and online profiles, people are quite accustomed to filling out the “about me” section. If you were asked to describe your smile what would you say? If you would likely skip this question because your teeth are less than sparkling white, you are not alone. The staff at Gentle Dental Putney can make your smile dazzle.

The treatment

Before your dentist begins treatment a thorough exam will be conducted. This is to ensure that there are no oral health issues that must be addressed before starting the treatment. It is also recommended that patients have their teeth cleaned prior to having them whitened.

The treatment its self only takes about an hour. The first step is to protect the lips and gums. A mouthpiece is used to hold the lips away from the teeth. Then, the gums are covered to prevent the whitening gel from coming in to contact with them. Once the soft tissue is protected the whitening gel is applied to the teeth. This gel is then activated by using a special light. The final phase is to clean the whitening gel off the teeth and remove the protective mouthpiece and gum coverings. Your teeth will be up to eight shades whiter.

Keeping your teeth white

There are a few things that can help prevent your teeth from getting discoloured again. The first is to practice good oral hygiene. Brushing and flossing removes the food particles that can cause stains, minimizing the potential for discoloration.

Tea, coffee, wine, and berries are some of the most common things responsible for staining teeth. You don’t have to give them up completely, but if you limit your consumption of these it will help to keep your teeth white longer. If you do have a cup of coffee or eat a piece of berry pie brush you teeth when you are done. The longer the staining agents remain in contact with the surface of your teeth the more discoloration will occur. A few changes to your habits can have a positive impact on the appearance of your smile.
