Teeth Whitening Treatments At Oakdale Dental In Leicester

Teeth Whitening

Over time our smiles naturally become more discoloured and lose their pearly white shine. As we age they will become a little darker or yellow in appearance, but it can happen earlier depending on our oral hygiene habits, medication, diet (certain food/drink such as red wine or coffee), or tobacco use. You can become less self-confident, and feel the need to shield your teeth when you laugh or talk. The most simple, effective, and inexpensive way to enhance your smile is with professional teeth whitening.

Tooth sensitivity is the most common side effect of teeth whitening, however professional teeth whitening at Oakdale Dental can help as we use special treatments to desensitise the teeth, and have toothpastes and serums to reduce sensitivity.

Learn About Tooth Whitening

How Did My Teeth Get So Yellow?

Over the years, like almost everyone, you’ve experienced a natural buildup of organic pigments on your teeth. Coloured proteins from coffee, tea, and other foods have simply darkened the natural whiteness of your teeth. The use of tobacco, antibiotics, and certain minerals usually speeds the darkening process. But, yellowing can be easily reversed.

Who Can Use Tooth Whitening?

Nearly anyone aged 18 to 90. If you want to obtain a more confident smile by improving the whiteness of your teeth, talk to us.

How Does Whitening Work?

Your dentist will first check your teeth and gums to be sure that you begin the treatment in good dental health. An impression of your teeth is taken in order to provide you with a custom-fit plastic tray designed to hold the bleaching gel next to your teeth. Following the bleaching program your dentist suggests, you will notice the results quickly, as the gentle oxygenating action of the gel begins to whiten your teeth.

Will Whitening Damage My Teeth?

Not at all. The whitening process will not affect your enamel, tooth structure, bonding or restorations. Whitening acts only on the molecules that cause the discolouration.

Is Whitening Safe?

Whitening is gentle and safe when supervised by a dentist. In fact, dentist supervised whitening has been done for nearly a century, but has increased in popularity in recent years as yellowed teeth are becoming less and less acceptable, both socially and professionally. Procedures have been simplified and shown to be safe.

How Long Will Whitening Take?

You’ll see results right away, usually within three days of starting the whitening process. The complete process normally takes between one and two weeks, but treatment times will vary depending on the source, type, and depth of the discolouration.

Is There Any Discomfort?

There is little, if any. Some patients might feel an increased sensitivity to cold, heat, or pressure during the whitening process, but this sensitivity ends a day or two after the treatment is completed. Any note of persistent discomfort should be reported to your dentist.

How Long Does Teeth Whitening Last?

Over time results can fade and the teeth can darken again but they will never go back to how they were before the whitening treatment was done.
In order to maintain the results whitening top up can be done and is perfectly safe to do so.

“Only trained dental professionals can whiten teeth. It is illegal for anyone other than dentists or their teams to carry out teeth whitening. Anyone else offering teeth whitening (e.g. beauticians. hairdressers, and salon staff) won’t have the right training or knowledge, could permanently damage your teeth and gums and can’t help you when something goes wrong.”
