Am I suitable to have my teeth whitened?
How long will my teeth stay white?
Sadly no one has that pure white smile, but we can take steps to help you achieve one that remains brighter and whiter for longer. We will diagnose any underlying issues that might cause tooth discolouration and advise you on how to top up the whitness of your smile at safe set intervals.
How white will my teeth be?
Depending on the level of discolouration and the thickness of the enamel the possible levels of whitening will vary. It is very rare that discolouration is uniform across all teeth, even if it looks that way in the mirror. Teeth whitening gels must be carefully managed to ensure that they provide an even finish of whiteness.
This is where our expertise comes in: we analyise your teeth, measure the exact amount of gel necessary, monitor the whitening process and make sure you end up with teeth as natural looking possible.
P.S. Teeth whitening only works on natural teeth and will have no effect on crowns or dentures.
What treatments are available?
We have an extensive range of procedures which suit a variety of lifestyles. Whether you’re looking for a one-off treatment for an instant transformation, a more gradual change over time, or you would like a combination of both.
In our daily life most foods we eat can cause teeth to stain to such an extent that toothpaste isn’t up to the task. That’s life, but you don’t have to resign yourself to discoloured teeth. Professional teeth whitening will bring you teeth back to a more natural colour.
Help to break a habit
Quitting a bad habit is never easy, whether that is nicotine, sugar or caffinee. But if you have just quit then getting your teeth whitened can be a big help towards not giving up. Not only is it a reward for a job done well, but the transformation to your smile will help you not to fall into bad habits again.
For special occasions
There are 101 occasions where you want to be confident and enjoy the moment: weddings, work conferences, performances. If you have noticed and feel self-confident about your teeth this can cause you to hide your smile, and you won’t feel as relaxed as when you can smile freely.
Which one is easier?
While DIY home kits can be purchased online in a matter of minutes, it could be considered the easier option on the surface. But natural looking, even, teeth whitening is not easy.
Teeth discolour at varying rates which makes it harder to get a uniform finish across each tooth, especially if you are not used to working with a particular strength of whitening agent. That’s when things start to get tricky.
We have worked with and understand the strength of each of our whitening agents. That’s why we can give an indication of the exact degree of whiteness you can expect to see.
Which one is more convienent?
The idea that DIY home whitening kits are more convenient is a myth.
While we understand that things can get busy during a week night, we are now open late on thursdays and even offer virtual consultations.
And when it comes to the treatment itself, we can provide you with a quick in-practice treatment for instant results or a take home kit to apply on a schedule we also provide.
Which is better value?
It is true that professional teeth whitening is not cheap compared to the DIY options.
But considering what it provides, it probably shouldn’t be.
To start, you are provided with a professional consultation on your dental health. This will help you to identify and cut out any problems which are causing your teeth to stain.
Everyone of our treatments also come with a free diamond polish (worth £95). This helps the teeth whitening treatment to work more effectively and last longer.
We also take pride in the work we do, and provide an after care service to ensure that nothing goes wrong.
A first class service and outstanding professionalism. I was hugely impressed by Urban Dental and my teeth have never been in better condition.
A big thanks to Michael and the team for excellent orthodontic treatment. Following my “Six Months Smile” braces treatment, I just want to smile 24 hours a day!
I’ve never been fond of the dentist (who is?) but after receiving treatment here I’d highly recommend the work. Definitely recommend.
