Teeth whitening is the most popular cosmetic dental treatment, as it is easily accessible and is surprisingly affordable. The two main methods of brightening up a smile are to have the treatment carried out in the dental surgery, or to use custom-made whitening trays. Chairside teeth whitening in London is the fastest and most effective way of getting that celebrity-style smile, as the results are visible within as little as an hour using an award winning whitening system. It could even be scheduled for a lunch hour. It is the perfect solution to getting a whiter smile in a hurry, and is great if you have a special event coming up in the near future. But what does the procedure involve?
A Quick Overview of Chairside Teeth Whitening
The first and most important step is to have a full check-up to make sure you have healthy teeth and gums. Your oral health is always our top priority. Once you have been given the all clear then you’ll be just a short step away from having a beautiful white smile. Our dentist will protect your gums before painting on the peroxide gel which is then activated using a thermal diffuser, called the iPower Diffuser. This is a little bit different from other in-surgery whitening systems as it doesn’t use visible light, but instead utilises thermal energy. The thermal energy is carefully regulated, so the teeth whitening process is faster and more effective, and can reduce treatment times by up to 50%. Even more importantly the use of a thermal diffuser can help to reduce or eliminate tooth sensitivity that can often occur after having teeth bleached in a dental surgery.
The unit used to whiten your teeth is quiet and small, as it is roughly the size of a mobile phone. The actual treatment is pretty comfortable, and you should be able to relax while watching a DVD through special goggles so there is little chance of becoming too bored. You’ll be able to see the difference straight away, but you’ll also be given specially designed kits of home teeth whitening in London. Perfect Trays are designed to be easy to use, and you’ll need to leave them in for just an hour or two every day. They are custom-made, so will be very comfortable to wear for this period of time. You’ll be given precise instructions on how to fill up the trays with the whitening gel, and it is important to make sure you follow these instructions as closely as you can.
The exact strength of whitening gel prescribed can vary according to each person’s individual needs. It is also important not to overuse these whitening trays, and not to leave them in for too long. Over-bleaching your teeth could result in all the natural colour being bleached out which can leave the teeth looking almost grey in appearance, and may result in the teeth becoming more fragile as the bleaching process does dehydrate the teeth. There is no need to do this as you will achieve good results simply by following our instructions which are designed to make sure you get a healthy white smile in complete safety.
