Are you looking for teeth whitening in Guildford? With recent technological advances in cosmetic dentistry, there is no better time than now to perfect your smile and increase your confidence with whiter teeth.
It can be easy to get lost in the labyrinth of information, home remedies and countless whitening products now available online, all claiming to be the best way to whiten your teeth. Not all of these are as safe or as trustworthy as you might think – read this teeth whitening guide before going any further in your search for whiter teeth!
Why do people choose to whiten their teeth?
As we grow older, our teeth tend to get darker in colour. This is partly because of natural changes, but your teeth can also gradually be stained overtime by strongly coloured food and drinks. Red wine and coffee are notorious for this, as is smoking, which contributes to yellow teeth.
Having your teeth whitened is a way of reversing one of the visible signs of ageing, making you appear younger and restoring confidence in your smile. Nothing you wear is more important than your smile, which explains why teeth whitening has become one of the most popular cosmetic treatments in the UK.
What is the best way to whiten your teeth?
While there are some measures you can take at home to maintain healthy looking teeth, the most effective and safest way to whiten your teeth is to consult a professional dentist. At Waterden Dental in Guildford, our team of highly qualified dental practitioners specialise in providing safe and successful teeth whitening treatments.
Rather than taking the risk of wasting your money on an unknown, potentially dangerous, whitening kit purchased online, arrange a consultation with one of our experts. When carried out professionally, teeth whitening is cost-effective, safe, and produces exceptional visible results.
What teeth whitening treatments are available at Waterden Dental?
At Waterden Dental we offer two treatment options:
- Our in-clinic whitening treatment involves the use of both a lamp and high quality hydrogen peroxide bleaching gel to give you noticeably, whiter teeth by up to 6 shades.
- Our at home whitening treatment offers a flexible solution which will fit in with any schedule. Following an initial consultation, you will receive customised trays to take home, so you can whiten your teeth at your own convenience.
What is the danger with DIY teeth whitening kits?
Because of the recent surge in demand for pearly white teeth, there are lots of ‘miracle’ DIY teeth whitening kits appearing for sale online that have not been professionally approved. You should avoid buying and using for these for two reasons:
- Firstly, their effectiveness is very limited when compared with professional treatment, so you might feel as if you have wasted your money.
- Secondly and more seriously, some of these kits can cause permanent damage to your teeth and gums.
Unregulated cheap teeth whitening kits put your oral health at risk, so even though they may have seemingly glowing online reviews, buy these kits at your peril. As we have mentioned already, the safest and best way to whiten your teeth is to consult a professional dentist.
What can I do to maintain healthy looking white teeth?
Brush your teeth! Brushing and flossing your teeth and gums is the best way to maintain good oral health which will help to keep your smile looking bright. We also advise you visit your dentist every 6 months too, for regular dental health checks and hygiene treatment.
