The Ins and Outs of Enlighten Whitening

Thursday, September 22nd, 2016

18625010We are proud to offer our clients the best cosmetic dental treatments on the market, including Enlighten whitening. Enlighten is the world’s leading professional whitening system; if you’re looking for a beautiful, bright smile this autumn, this is the perfect choice!

The ins and outs of Enlighten

Enlighten is a whitening treatment that uses both at-home and in-chair methods. Treatment takes 15 days, with the first 14 days involving home treatment followed by a professional in-chair session on the 15th day.

We recommend Enlighten because it is tried and tested, the results are amazing and long-lasting and the procedure is safe and simple. This is the only treatment currently on the market that guarantees the lightest, brightest shade of white, B1.

The Enlighten treatment process

Enlighten treatment is simple and convenient. Before you start your treatment, we will ask you to pop into the clinic so that we can make an impression of your teeth, which will be used to create your bespoke whitening trays.

When your trays are ready, you will undergo 14 days of treatment at home. All you have to do is wear your trays for around 6-9 hours per day (most people prefer to wear theirs at night while they sleep) and you will start to notice that your teeth look lighter and whiter.

On the 15th day of your treatment, we invite you back to the clinic for a power whitening session, which lasts just one hour. During this procedure, whitening agent will be placed on the teeth and bright light will be used to activate it. After treatment, your smile will look stunning and the results will be visible straight away.

A White Smile for a White Wedding

Monday, May 2nd, 2016

wedding smileEvery bride wants to look their best on their wedding day. Months are spent planning to make sure that the dress fits, the hair and make-up looks perfect and that a professional photographer will be on hand to capture the memories the couple and their family will treasure for the rest of their lives.

But those photographs will not look quite so impressive if the bride or groom’s smile is less than dazzling. This is why couples are now choosing to undergo cosmetic dentistry ahead of their big day, in order to get the perfect white smile for their wedding.

Treatment from London dentists can range from procedures that have to be planned a few weeks or months in advance, such as orthodontic braces to fix crooked or gappy smiles, to those that can be booked just a few days before the ceremony. The latest teeth whitening treatments use lasers to have an immediate impact on the colour of your teeth and are the perfect quick fix, especially if you thought of cosmetic dentistry at the last minute.

Many patients expect orthodontic work to take years to fix their teeth, but there are modern brands, such as the Invisalign Lite plastic aligners and Social 6 lingual braces, which are designed especially to work quickly on just the front teeth, the ones that are most likely to be seen in the wedding photographs.

If you are too late even for these rapid options and are worried that your crooked or missing teeth are going to stick out in the wedding snaps, there is still hope. Porcelain veneers can be fitted over your natural teeth in just a couple of appointments – one to take measurements and one to attach the thin veneers, masking any problems with your smile and creating a perfect one for the perfect wedding day.

The Rise of Cosmetic Dental Treatments

Saturday, October 31st, 2015

18625010Some may argue that media portrayal of celebrities who have had cosmetic dentistry treatments such as porcelain veneers, promotes the rise in cosmetic dentistry. However, others may attribute the advancement of cosmetic dental care to innovations in cosmetic dentistry, such as CEREC technology, accessible financing or dental insurance plans, and an increase in the public’s health consciousness.

More individuals are becoming aware of the importance of a healthy, attractive appearance. Smile makeovers give impact for improving life opportunities by making us look refreshed and younger.

Veneers and whitening treatments

Smile makeovers gained popularity via the stars, however dentists such as those at City Dental Leeds aim to make cosmetic dental treatments available for everyone who wants to change their appearance. There are options in smile makeovers that include not only porcelain veneers, but invisible braces and facial rejuvenation treatments as well.

A smile makeover is any cosmetic dentistry treatment that aims to enhance natural beauty for a radiant and attractive smile. Porcelain veneers are a popular choice for masking tooth discolouration as an alternate to teeth whitening. Personalised smile designs with porcelain veneers may be used to give straightness to mildly misaligned teeth instead of wearing braces.

Braces treatment

Certain smile makeover treatments may be combined. For example, teeth may be straightened with invisible braces such as Invisalign, and whitened through power teeth whitening techniques.

Get in touch with us to learn about our options in cosmetic dental treatments and how we involve you in designing your own smile. We listen to your needs, provide personalised recommendations and financing options for having the smile you desire. Smile makeovers create stunning appearance and boost self-esteem for enjoyment of life.

A White Smile For Any Occasion

Wednesday, October 7th, 2015

386703_blogIf you are preparing for a special occasion such as a Halloween party or autumn get together, you will no doubt want to look your best. Thanks to celebrity influence, more and more people are opting to have their teeth whitened. This not only improves the look of your smile but increases a person’s self confidence.

What are the options?

There are two main options when it comes to teeth whitening. It can either be done at a dental practice or cosmetic surgery by means of in-office treatment or at home with home treatments. Or it can be done with ‘over the counter’ products available from supermarkets and online retailers.

In-Office Options

The-in office options are much more expensive than any other options, but they do yield faster results and are carried out by trained professionals. There are usually two ways it can be done, the first being an intensive treatment using a special light to speed up the process. This option can usually whiten teeth by around 5-6 shades in a single session. Or it can be done more gradually over a course of sessions that can span a few weeks.

Professional at Home Treatments

If you have limited time or would rather not spend any unnecessary time in the dental hot seat then your dental professional can provide you with an at home kit. This kit will usually take around two weeks to complete and can lighten teeth by around 5 shades.

Over the Counter at Home Kits

Products that can be purchased over the counter or via online sites have wildly varying results. Some are so weak in the active bleaching ingredients that will do little to nothing to change the shade of your teeth, while others may be overly strong and can cause burns to the gums, throat and mouth. Although this is the cheapest option is it also the least reliable.

Smile Brighter with Amazing Teeth Whitening

Friday, June 26th, 2015

4683491_blogIf you wish your smile was lighter and brighter, we have the perfect solution for you. Teeth whitening is a simple, effective and painless way to give your pearly whites some added sparkle this summer and the best news is that you don’t even need to leave home to enjoy the results. Our convenient home whitening systems give you a gorgeous smile in the comfort of your own living room.

About home teeth whitening

Home teeth whitening is one of the simplest and most affordable ways to make a noticeable difference to the aesthetic of your smile. If your teeth are looking a little yellow or dull due to wear and tear, coffee or tea consumption or smoking, whitening treatment can give them a beautiful, radiant glow, which will make your smile look healthy and bright and increase your confidence.

Home whitening is really straightforward and all you have to do is wear a set of custom-made trays that contain whitening agent for a set period of time every day for 10-14 consecutive days. We typically recommend wearing the trays, which look similar to mouth guards, for around six hours per day and it’s up to you when you choose to do this. You can fit your treatment around your social and work commitments and after 14 days you’ll notice an amazing difference. Before you begin treatment, your dentist will explain how treatment works, check your oral health and create impressions of your teeth. These will serve as templates for your bespoke whitening trays.

When the whitening agent comes into contact with the teeth, it gradually lightens their shade, creating a stunning white smile.

Is home whitening safe?

We use premium tried and tested home whitening treatments, and we carry out a consultation with all patients prior to the start of treatment. Our dentists have many years of experience and are experts in achieving the perfect result, so you can rest assured that you’re in safe hands. It is fairly common to experience slight sensitivity during and after whitening treatment, but this should only be very mild and it will be temporary.

Tips for Keeping Your Teeth White After Treatment

Thursday, June 11th, 2015

297243_blogIf you’ve had whitening treatment or your teeth are sporting a sparkling glow following a dental hygiene session, it’s natural to want to do your best to keep those pearly whites shining. But how can you achieve this goal and prevent staining? Here are some useful tips for keeping your teeth bright and white:

Brushing and flossing

Brushing and flossing are extremely effective ways of keeping the teeth white and preventing discolouration. When you brush and floss, you remove bacteria and bits of food to prevent plaque formation, polish the surfaces of the teeth and help to remove compounds and substances that contribute to staining. We strongly recommend brushing twice a day for at least two minutes each session and flossing daily.

Use a straw

Using a straw to drink helps to prevent direct contact between staining agents and the tooth enamel. Using a straw can also help to reduce the risk of cavities, especially if you are consuming sugary or acidic drinks.

Watch your diet

Some foods and drinks carry a much higher risk of staining than others. This is due to their composition and the presence of compounds such as tannins. Examples include tea, coffee and red wine. Some dark coloured foods like berries, pasta sauces and soy sauce, also cause staining.

Avoid smoking

Smoking is one of the main offenders when it comes to tooth discolouration, due to the presence of substances such as tar. Avoiding smoking will help to preserve the whiteness of the teeth and also reduce the risk of oral health issues including bad breath, oral cancer and gum disease, as well as general health problems such as heart disease, cancer and strokes.

Dental visits

Regular dental visits and dental hygiene sessions will stand your white teeth in good stead, so make sure you keep up to date with your routine check-ups and take time to visit a hygienist once every 12 months.

Tips And Tricks After Having Whitening Treatment

Thursday, November 20th, 2014

235042_blogMany of us are looking forward to a fun-filled festive season and what better way to celebrate than with a sparkling white smile? If you’re thinking of having whitening treatment this winter, why not give us a call and book your consultation?

About whitening treatment

We offer incredibly effective and convenient home whitening treatment, which produces radiant results in just 2 weeks. Home whitening is really simple and all you have to do is wear your bespoke whitening trays at home for 2 weeks. The trays are designed for you based on impressions of your teeth and they contain whitening gel, which lightens the shade of your teeth, giving you a whiter, brighter smile.

Usually, you start to notice the results after just a few days and by the end of the fortnight, your smile will look camera-ready in perfect time for the party season. We usually recommend wearing the trays for 6 hours per day.

What happens after whitening?

The results of your whitening treatment should last for years to come, but the longevity of treatment is heavily dependent on you and the lifestyle choices you make. Whiteness fades with time and there are certain factors that accelerate this process, including smoking, poor oral hygiene and food choices. If you drink coffee all day every day or you enjoy a couple of glasses of red on a nightly basis, you’ll probably find that your teeth start to become discoloured fairly quickly.

If you’re desperate to keep your radiant glow, we recommend regular hygiene sessions and dental checks, a good oral hygiene routine at home, avoiding smoking and trying to cut down on foods and drinks, which are known to stain the teeth. We also recommend drinking plenty of water.

With home whitening, it is possible to repeat treatment occasionally to prolong the results.
