“How do I get whiter teeth” is one of the most common questions I hear from patients. It’s normally Step 1 of any Smile Makeover plan.
So i’ve put together some advice to help you make a fully I informed choice.
Before we get going, I have a top secret recommendation for you. Before you whiten, consider Airflow treatment.
You might be surprised to hear this, but hear me out.
Teeth can appear yellow due to plaque, staining, or biofilm (bacteria) accumulation.
Rather than diving straight into the teeth whitening process, removing this build-up first with Airflow can be incredibly effective in brightening your smile. It’s also more cost effective.
Once you’ve had Airflow, you may want to get a further few shades brighter.
We have two different teeth whitening options to take it up a notch. For those wanting fast results, we offer an in-surgery whitening system called BlancOne. Alternatively, if you’d prefer to whiten your teeth at your own pace, we provide at-home whitening kits that can be tailored to your needs.
Let’s dive into the pro’s and con’s of each:
This is a brilliant option for those who want immediate results or are considering combining this treatment with other cosmetic procedures like composite bonding, crowns, or porcelain veneers.
Let’s talk about the method we use in our practice: BlancOne.
BlancOne is an industry leader hailing from Italy, renowned for its innovative approach to dental care. The company’s spokesperson, Dr. Monaldo Saracinelli, is a respected dental professional, having published numerous scholarly works. You can learn more about their commitment to quality here.
Secondly, BlancOne’s treatment options are designed to minimise sensitivity, enhancing patient comfort throughout the whitening process. This focus on gentle, yet effective treatment aligns with our values of prioritising patient experience, as outlined in our practice philosophy.
With more cost-friendly options, patients can schedule whitening treatments more regularly, ensuring a more sustained smile transformation.
With the combination of Airflow, we believe the ability to comfortably invest in regular whitening and maintenance treatments leads to better overall results for patients with BlancOne.
Our kits consist of specially manufactured trays that are custom moulded to fit your teeth. They are designed to ensure even contact between your teeth and the whitening gel, leading to a more uniform result.
We also provide prescription whitening gels and detailed instructions to guide you through the process. With these in hand, you’ll have all you need to begin your teeth-whitening journey from the comfort of your home.
Why choose Home Whitening? Here are a couple of reasons:
With at-home whitening, results are gradual, providing a subtle transformation over time. This can be a bonus for those looking for a less noticeable change.
In the long term (10+ uses), at-home whitening can prove more cost-effective. You can use the same custom trays with new gel, meaning you can refresh your smile whenever you like without breaking the bank.
You can use the home whitening kits at your own pace and in the comfort of your own home. This means you can choose a time that fits your schedule best, be it early morning, late at night, or any time in between.
As a dentist passionate about patients with the best possible care and information, I feel it’s crucial to be open about possible risks with Teeth Whitening.
Now, this is not to say that teeth whitening is dangerous – not at all. However, like any dental procedure, it does carry certain risks and potential side effects that you should be aware of before deciding on the treatment.
Perhaps the most common concern we hear from patients considering teeth whitening is about sensitivity. It’s a valid concern: my take is all forms of teeth whitening can result in some form of sensitvity.
So, how does this happen? Well, the whitening gels we use contain bleaching chemicals that can cause sensitivity.
These chemicals work by penetrating the enamel to reach the dentine – the yellowish tissue beneath the enamel – and change its colour. In some cases, this can result in a temporary increase in sensitivity to hot, cold, or sweet foods and drinks.
