Brighten up your smile with professional teeth whitening. Sunbury based Lotus Smiles offers a range of proven teeth whitening treatments from top brand names including Zoom and Pola.
In Sunbury teeth whitening at Lotus Smiles Dental is a professional, reliable and efficient option for patients wishing to whiten their teeth and enhance their smile.
Why do teeth discolour?
Drinking coffee, tea, and red wine, combined with other lifestyle habits such as smoking and not brushing and flossing as well as you should, all contribute to the need for teeth whitening. Teeth also discolour with age as the tooth enamel thins and reveals more of the dark dentin beneath. In cases like these, teeth whitening may not work, and veneers may be a better option. This is why it’s always best to visit your Sunbury dentist for advice prior to teeth whitening.
How to get your teeth whitened professionally
The teeth whitening process involves visiting Lotus Smiles Dental for a quick consultation to check that teeth whitening in Sunbury is a suitable treatment for you. If your oral health is poor or your gums are infected, then our Sunbury dentist will recommend the necessary dental treatments required to get your teeth in good condition prior to whitening.
Both our Zoom and Pola treatments can be carried out here at our clinic, or if you prefer, we also provide take-home whitening kits so you can whiten your teeth in the comfort of your own home. Either way, having examined your teeth, our Sunbury dentist will recommend the best teeth whitening treatment based on your lifestyle and budget.
Teeth whitening options
In-chair whitening takes around an hour from start to finish during which time your mouth and gums are protected from the whitening gel which could cause stinging. Hydrogen peroxide is the whitening ingredient both in Zoom and Pola. Once the gel is applied to the teeth, a special light is used to help the hydrogen peroxide break down and penetrate the tooth enamel, removing stains and bleaching the teeth. Both procedures when monitored by our professional dentists are totally safe and do not damage the structure of the tooth in any way.
Whitening your teeth at home is one of the quickest and most cost-effective ways to improve the appearance of your smile. If you’ve got a special occasion looming in the distance, then our take-home kits made to fit your teeth only, will remove stains and blemishes that brushing alone can’t remove.
How long does teeth whitening last?
This depends on whether you revert back to the habits which caused discolouration in the first place. However, with careful post whitening care, your teeth will look better than ever. Because they look so bright and shiny, you’ll be encouraged to brush and floss diligently. We can also provide you with touch-up gels which help your smile stay whiter for longer.
