Have you noticed recently that your teeth may not be as white as they once were? As we age, it is natural for our teeth to become darker as a result of the type of food or drink we consume and lifestyle habits. Although there are whitening toothpastes available which can aid in whitening your teeth, the results may not be very noticeable or to your wishes. At Orpington Dental however, we offer tooth whitening Orpington to our patients to aid in restoring their smile to what it once was. So if you are based in Orpington and are looking for a way to restore the natural shade of your teeth, visit us at our practice.
About us at Orpington Dental
Providing high quality dental treatments to our patients for over 20 years, Orpington Dental focuses on helping individuals who are interested in improving their smile by using dental procedures within cosmetic dentistry. Led by our principal dentist Helen Loubser, our team of five dentists are experienced in providing cosmetic dental treatments including dental implants, orthodontic treatment, veneers and tooth whitening.
Alongside cosmetic dental treatments, Orpington Dental also offers new and existing patients treatments within areas of dentistry including preventive and general dentistry and we also provide emergency treatment for dental pain.
However if it is cosmetic dental treatment you are looking for and in particular you want to brighten your teeth, we offer two types of tooth whitening Orpington to help you achieve the smile you desire.
Power Whitening at Orpington Dental
If you would like to whiten your teeth with the help of a dental professional, we recommend our Power Whitening treatment, where your teeth will be whitened at our practice by an experienced dentist.
Before starting the treatment our dentist will place a protective barrier on your gums and lips before placing a safe dental bleaching agent on your teeth. In order to activate the bleaching process, a lamp is positioned over your teeth. The procedure takes an hour and following the treatment you can expect to see a noticeable difference in the shade of your teeth.
If you are planning for a special occasion such as a birthday, wedding or conference, then this is the best option for you. However if you would prefer to whiten your teeth in the comfort of your home, you may want to consider our home whitening treatment.
Home whitening at Orpington Dental
A more affordable option for our patients, home whitening uses custom-made plastic trays and a whitening gel which can be worn at night or during the day for a period of time to gradually whiten your teeth. Results of home whitening can usually be seen after two weeks of having the treatment.
How long does tooth whitening Orpington last?
Even though tooth whitening is not a permanent dental procedure, there are ways to maximise the effects of our tooth whitening treatment. One way of doing this is by cutting back on foods and drinks that are most likely to stain your teeth, for example red wine and coffee. If you are a smoker, we also recommend that you cut back on smoking or stop completely.
Also by maintaining a good oral hygiene regime, which includes brushing your teeth twice a day, flossing and regularly visiting us for a scale and polish, your teeth will remain whiter for longer.
