Could Teeth Whitening Give You the Smile Makeover You Need?

In looking to transform and uplift our smiles, many of us automatically think about seeking complete overhauls and even invasive procedures when it comes to cosmetic dental care. However, in many cases, even smaller treatments such as professional teeth whitening could offer the successful outcomes youre looking for.

In determining how to achieve the smile makeover you want, dont overlook the power of teeth whitening treatments! Our insightful guide to whether teeth whitening could offer the transformation youre looking for should help.

How Does Teeth Whitening Work?

There are a range of options available when it comes to teeth whitening treatments, and they all work slightly differently in terms of application and outcomes. The basic premise remains the same, however applying a professional-grade whitening solution designed to remove stains and lighten the overall shade of your teeth. Heres a little more information on how each specific type of teeth whitening works:

In-Surgery Whitening

As the name suggests, in-surgery whitening is done by your dentist at your surgery of choice. Our Zoom treatment is a popular in-surgery option, where our experts will apply a power bleaching solution to your teeth. In just 60 minutes, this enables us to transform your smile!

At-Home Whitening Kits from the Dentist

Many dentists now offer at-home whitening kits, where a professional-grade whitening solution offers a more intense whitening effect than over-the-counter kits can. Although our kits are easy to use from the comfort of your own home, they are still bespoke. With our Bespoke whitening treatment, we take a digital scan of your mouth to produce tailored whitening trays that fit your teeth, and well also show you how to apply the trays and gel properly. Our Enlighten option offers the best of both worlds, with an in-surgery treatment followed by a 14-day gel and tray kit to apply at home for maximum results.

Over-the-Counter Teeth Whitening Kits

Over-the-counter kits are available from pharmacies and shops such as Boots, as well as online. Many of these include ready-made strips, pens or trays that have a much lower concentration of whitening agent in comparison with the professional alternatives.

Whitening Toothpastes and Rinses

Whitening toothpastes often include mild abrasives designed to remove surface stains, improving the brightness of your teeth with use over time. While these will never offer a professional-looking uplift, they can help you maintain the brightness of your teeth and reduce the appearance of stains if used regularly.

UV-Light Tooth Whitening

UV Light is often used as part of the in-surgery dental whitening treatments. First, a photosensitive gel is applied to the teeth before the UV light is carefully applied to accelerate the process.

LED Light Tooth Whitening

LED whitening systems are found both in-surgery and with at-home kits, and use the same type of process as UV whitening to activate applied gels.

Natural Teeth Whitening

Some natural whitening products are available, either marketed as such or bought as alternative ingredients that do work to brighten teeth. These often include things such as activated charcoal, which can remove surface stains, but wont have as much of an impact as professional whitening can. We would always advise caution and that you seek professional input rather than opting for natural alternatives such as baking soda, as unregulated application can severely damage your enamel and even the underlying layers of teeth.

How Teeth Whitening Improves Your Smile

Teeth whitening, especially done by a professional, offers instantaneous results that really do make a difference to your smile. Whiter teeth have long signified that someone takes pride in their appearance and self-care routines, whilst also offering a healthier looking smile.

As many dental health problems can cause staining on the teeth, its easy to assume that whiter teeth are healthier teeth. Although this is not necessarily always the case, whiter smiles can work wonders when it comes to our confidence and self-esteem! Alongside this, our teeth naturally become discoloured or yellow as we age. Whiter teeth therefore also make us appear more youthful.

Do You Need More Than Teeth Whitening?

Although it can be a transformative option, teeth whitening obviously cant adjust the alignment or overall health of your smile. If your smile makeover goals do extend beyond just having your teeth whitened and you need to address more structural concerns instead, its worth discussing these issues with your dentist before jumping into a treatment that may not offer the all-round results youre looking for. Your dentist may be able to recommend a more suitable procedure or treatment that can then be followed up with teeth whitening for maximum impact! Other types of treatment that may be worth looking into include:

Remember that each treatment can be carefully colour-matched to the current, or ideal, shade of your teeth so teeth whitening may be a good place to start.

Can Teeth Whitening Give You the Smile You Want?

If youre looking for whiter, brighter teeth, then teeth whitening can certainly offer this. If you have more deep-rooted concerns about the way your teeth look, or about their overall health, there may be a more suitable alternative for you. If you are looking for somewhere to start transforming your smile, teeth whitening can be a good place to begin. Its non-invasive and offers a transformative, satisfying outcome for the majority of patients often giving them the confidence to seek the cosmetic dental treatments theyve always dreamt of.
