Teeth Whitening

Brighten your smile with Wickersley Dental Practice

Many people wish for a brighter, whiter smile that has often been associated with celebrities. Over the past decade, tooth whitening has now become more affordable which allows all patients to boost their confidence.

Regular brushing, flossing and having good oral hygiene will naturally maintain a healthy and relatively white smile. However, some people’s teeth are not naturally bright white, meaning they will need a little extra help.

Why does teeth staining occur?

Many factors can affect the colour of your teeth over time. Smoking, bad oral health and certain foods and drinks can stain the outer layers of your teeth.

Drinks like red wine, coffee and tea can stain the enamel of the teeth. Foods like citrus fruit, tomato-based sauces and vinegar can cause staining and yellowing. This is often not reversible without whitening treatment.

Why should you choose professional teeth whitening?

There are many teeth whitening solutions available over the counter, including toothpaste, mouthwash and DIY kits. Of course, these products are much cheaper than professional teeth whitening but they are not very successful. Stains are often not removed, and re-staining often occurs soon after.

In the UK, there are thousands of practitioners illegally offering teeth whitening treatment. These people are not trained or regulated. When administered and monitored correctly, teeth whitening is a completely safe procedure. However, illegal whitening is not safe and could cause significant and permanent burning, scarring and damage to the enamel of the teeth.

As professional GDC registered dentists, we can administer much stronger whitening chemicals in a safe and regulated way. This means that your teeth will look and stay whiter for longer compared to cheaper illegal whitening treatments. Our home whitening treatments are overseen and supervised by one of our dentists.

Does teeth whitening treatment suit everyone?

The majority of patients are suitable for teeth whitening treatment. At Wickersley Dental Practice in Rotherham, our dentists will fully asses your dental health before they carry out any treatment on your teeth. Safety is at the front of our minds and we would not want to put your teeth and gums at risk from carrying out treatment if it is not suitable for you.

It is important to remember that teeth whitening is not a permanent treatment. To keep your teeth white, you will need to repeat the treatment every six months on average.
