Teeth whitening is a popular way for people to remove stains and brighten their smiles. To achieve a whiter smile, there are lots of teeth whitening solutions on the market from whitening toothpastes and charcoal scrubs to DIY at home teeth whitening kits. With such a variety of products and solutions out there, it’s hard to know which is the best and safest option for you. We are here to provide you with everything you need to know about whitening your teeth safely and effectively.
What Is The Best Way To Whiten Teeth?
Teeth whitening is a form of dentistry and therefore should be conducted by a professional dentist. Considering the importance of looking after teeth, teeth whitening should be completed in the correct way and going about it yourself can impose risks.
What Happens When You Whiten Your Teeth?
Teeth whitening is the process of bleaching your teeth to remove the appearance of stains and discoloration, leaving a brighter shade as a result. The treatment we provide uses a tray-based solution that can be conveniently used at home. Following a dental examination, specific moulded trays are created and the whitening solution is then provided. We find that most patients see results after the first two weeks and the whitening results can last up to three years.
Whitening Teeth With Airflow Tooth Polishing
At Dutch Barton, we also offer a teeth whitening treatment with the use of Airflow technology. The Airflow solution is less time intensive without the need for anything to be done at home in your own time.
Carried out by our hygienists, your teeth are meticulously cleaned using jet streams of water and air combined with fine cleaning powder particles, giving a superior result. This process improves and brightens the appearance of teeth, removes bad breath and leaves your teeth feeling completely clean.
The Risks of Not Using Dentist Approved Teeth Whitening Solutions
There are numerous solutions that claim to be teeth whitening and are often a more attractive option with a lower price tag. However, teeth whitening is a professional solution and if not carried out properly can entail a number of risks.
The moulds included in at home whitening kits won’t be tailored to your teeth meaning they won’t fit correctly and will leave gaps between your teeth, gums and the mould itself. This then allows the bleaching solution which whitens teeth to seep out and irritate the mouth, at times causing blistering.
In addition to this, you may find that beauty salons offer teeth whitening solutions although this is in fact illegal. Professional teeth whitening must be carried out by trained staff with dental qualifications.
