Whatever your reason for desiring whiter teeth, it is now possible to achieve the perfect teeth whitening in Orpington through the treatments offered at Orpington Dental Care.
Just like we all have different characteristics, people also have different tooth colour. Some people have more yellow teeth than others naturally, while others experience yellowing with aging. Generally, the optimal, most natural-looking tooth shade is always the one that equals the whiteness of the teeth and the whites of a person’s eye, but one’s natural tooth colour can be affected by many factors such as the natural aging process, the use of staining substances, the accumulation of plaque and tartar deposits as well as teeth trauma. Professional teeth whitening in Orpington can help you achieve a brighter and white smile.
What are the different procedures used to whiten teeth?
Teeth whitening in Orpington can be achieved in two ways: in-surgery whitening with laser technology and at-home bleaching with custom-made flexible plastic trays.
In each of these treatments, the technique and the duration of the treatment varies. If you opt for power teeth whitening in Orpington, then a protective barrier will be placed on your gums and lips followed by a bleaching gel on your teeth. The bleaching process will be activated as soon as the light source is positioned over your teeth. At Orpington Dental Care, power whitening is a non-invasive treatment which can produce great results in less than an hour.
On the other hand, at-home bleaching isa complete home teeth whitening system which involves taking impressions of your teeth so that custom-made trays can be created. These trays resemble very thin, clear gum shields which you can comfortably wear along with bleaching gel either awake or while sleeping. With his method, you can see results in approximately two weeks.
