A report by the Oral Health Foundation found that 48% of the adult population are unhappy with their teeth, with discolouration the most common source of dissatisfaction. Listening to our patients, we understand that something as simple as having the confidence to smile every day can make a big difference to quality of life and wellbeing. Many patients tell us their teeth have lost their natural sparkle over time, which can be caused by anything from certain foods or drinks, to different medications and trauma.
Many people have had bad experiences, or have heard negative stories about over-the-counter whitening kits. Lots of these contain potentially harmful chemicals, so we want to make sure you can have complete peace of mind that your mouth and teeth will be looked after by choosing teeth whitening treatment at Highfield. If you decide you want to talk about your whitening options, your dentist will of course fully assess your clinical needs, but he will also be making a recommendation based on your emotional and financial needs.
Teeth whitening is designed to remove staining and lighten the natural colour of your teeth. Whitening your teeth with a kit at home means you can get a gradual effect at a pace that suits you. You will receive a bespoke whitening tray that will comfortably fit your teeth and mouth, which you then wear over the course of a few weeks, usually at night time.
Although teeth whitening is not a permanent solution for discoloured teeth, you will see fantastic results for a lengthy period of time and you can return to see us for additional whitening treatment. You may also like to consider booking regular hygiene therapy sessions to help look after you lovely new white teeth, so you can get the very best from your beautiful smile.
