When provided by a dentist, teeth whitening treatment is one of the quickest and least invasive ways to make over your smile. At Moonlight Dental Surgery in Slough our skilled team have helped many patients to achieve a beautiful, bright white smile with the help of safe and gentle teeth whitening treatment.
How teeth get stained
Our teeth are subjected to a lot in a day, so it’s hardly surprising that stains start to build up. Food and drink, certain medications and some medicated mouthwashes can all cause staining of the teeth, as can smoking. Some medical conditions can also result in tooth staining.
When carried out by a dentist, teeth whitening is a safe and effective way to get rid of these stains, restoring a naturally brighter colour to your teeth.
At our Slough dental practice, we use the Evolution teeth whitening system, one of the most popular brands in the world and the only one that guarantees a B1 shade of whiteness – the lightest shade available in the UK.
This is a combination whitening treatment, which involves a two-week course of home treatment combined with a final, hour-long visit to our Slough dental practice.
The whitening process works by increasing each tooth’s permeability to oxygen, which breaks down the stain molecules to restore the natural brightness of your tooth.
For the home part of your treatment, your dentist will provide you with custom-made whitening trays and bleaching gel. You place a small amount of gel in the trays and wear them overnight for two weeks. At the end of this period you have an hour-long appointment with the dentist here at our Slough practice. We also offer an exclusively home-whitening option.
It is vital to consult a dentist for teeth whitening treatment because the products they use are tried, tested and safe, and designed to minimise sensitivity.
