White teeth for Christmas?

Posted in

This may be a good time to think about getting your teeth whitened before your social Christmas merry-go-round! People often come to Smilefocus unsure of what Teeth Whitening options are available and what the costs are. The good news is that teeth whitening improves your smile with little effort and minimal cost.

Here is a simple guide:

1. Light Activated teeth whitening

Light-activated teeth whitening has the advantage of being effective and quick. The latest available systems use a plasma arc or xenon-halogen light source to activate the whitening agent which is applied to the teeth. At Smilefocus we use the ZOOM technology. This method takes two hours or less and has been clinically proven to lighten teeth an average of 8 shades whiter in one visit. Tooth whitening treatment is completely safe and the benefits can be seen for years.

 2. At-home teeth whitening

A whitening gel is applied to a customised mouthguard which is then worn regularly for a few hours or overnight. The mouthguard is personalised for your mouth and you can replace the whitening gel at the clinic when you run out.  At home whitening will result in an improved colour in just a few days. Its painless and easy.

3. Whitening toothpaste

Although all the toothpaste adverts suggest get shiny white teeth in a moment,  they do not actually alter the intrinsic colour of your teeth. Whitening toothpastes work by enhancing the effectiveness of stain removal, and they may be abrasive so be careful not to use them too frequently. If you want long term solutions we advise you discuss the first two options with your dentist.

Don’t let another year go by – come in and let us get you on the path to beautiful white teeth.
