Get a Whiter Smile This Spring

A visible tea stain on an incisor, a slight yellowing in your smile can really affect the way that you feel about your smile. Whether you simply want to look good in your summer snaps, or to generally improve the appearance of the teeth for a special occasion, we have whitening treatments for you.

What is ‘teeth whitening’?

Exactly what it sounds like: A process whereby your teeth are made whiter. How this process is achieved, however, is where the details become more important. Most forms of whitening involve the use of oxidising agents (such as hydrogen peroxide and carbamide peroxide) to make your teeth several shades lighter. These agents infiltrate your tooth enamel and reach the deeper, inner stains of your teeth. At Advance Dental Clinic in Chelmsford, our preferred method of tooth whitening is at home whitening.

At home whitening

Bleach your teeth in the comfort of your own home! With an at home whitening procedure, you will wear special dental trays which will contain a special, low intensity, oxidising agent. You will need to wear them for roughly 6 hours a day over a period of 5 to 15 days. In many cases, people notice dramatic results in just a few days! Some stains, however, can take longer to bleach and in this case, results may not be as immediate. As a rule, whitening is less effective for people whose teeth have decayed or whose teeth have a naturally grey tint.

Some possible side-effects

Some patients experience temporary tooth sensitive, but this commonly subsides shortly after treatment has been completed. If you experience dental irritation, it most likely caused by a poorly fitted dental tray. Other side effects can occur if a high concentration of the oxidising agent comes into contact with unprotected tissue.
