Teeth Whitening in West London

Brighten Your Smile with Professional Teeth Whitening

A radiant smile not only leaves a lasting impression but also boosts your confidence. If you’re in West London, and seeking to enhance your smile, look no further than teeth whitening.

Teeth can appear duller for a number of reasons, such as diet, ageing, certain medications, smoking and trauma. Teeth whitening is a gentle chemical process used to eliminate discolouration and lighten teeth, giving you a noticeably brighter and more youthful-looking smile.

Understanding Tooth Discolouration

Tooth discolouration is a common dental concern that affects millions of people worldwide. It can mar the beauty of your smile and impact your self-confidence.

Extrinsic Stains

These stains are a common type of tooth discolouration that occur on the surface of the teeth. They are typically caused by various external factors, including:

  • Dietary Choices: Foods and beverages such as coffee, tea, red wine, and dark-coloured fruits can leave extrinsic stains on teeth over time due to their pigments.
  • Tobacco Use: Smoking or using tobacco products introduces tar and nicotine to the mouth, which can result in yellow or brown stains on teeth.
  • Poor Oral Hygiene: Inadequate brushing and flossing can lead to the accumulation of plaque and tartar, which can discolour teeth.
  • Ageing: As we age, the enamel on our teeth naturally wears down, revealing the yellowish dentin beneath, leading to a gradual discolouration.
  • Medications: Some medications, such as certain antipsychotics and antihypertensives, may cause tooth discolouration as a side effect.
  • Environmental Factors: Exposure to high levels of fluoride during tooth development, either from natural sources or excessive use of fluoride-containing products, can lead to enamel discolouration known as fluorosis.

Intrinsic Stains

These stains are a type of tooth discolouration that originate from within the tooth structure, making them more challenging to treat than extrinsic stains. These stains develop below the enamel, within the dentin or pulp of the tooth, and can be caused by various factors, including:

  • Dental Trauma: Physical injury to a tooth, such as a fall or impact, can result in intrinsic discolouration. The tooth may react to trauma by producing more dentin, which can appear darker than enamel.
  • Medication Use: Some medications, such as tetracycline antibiotics, when taken during tooth development (in childhood), can cause intrinsic staining. This type of staining is often more pronounced and can range from yellow to dark brown or grey.
  • Genetic Factors: In some cases, genetics can play a role in tooth discolouration. Some individuals may be genetically predisposed to develop teeth with intrinsic stains.
  • Ageing: As we age, the dentin inside our teeth naturally darkens, which can become more visible as the enamel thins over time.

External Teeth Whitening

This involves applying a bleaching agent to the tooth’s surface through customised trays for home whitening. You wear these trays with bleaching gel daily for a few weeks, followed by a check-up to ensure successful lightening. Our professional home whitening kits offer superior results and minimise side effects like gum irritation and tooth sensitivity while allowing us to monitor your progress closely.

Internal Teeth Whitening

This involves placing a whitening agent inside a discolored tooth post-root canal therapy, where the inner pulp is replaced with a rubber filling. The agent is inserted into a drilled hole, sealed with a temporary filling. After about a week, the filling and bleach are removed, repeating if needed. Once the desired shade is reached, the hole is sealed permanently. Teeth whitening only affects natural teeth, not replacements like crowns or veneers, which can be adjusted to match.

Benefits of Teeth Whitening

Teeth whitening offers a range of benefits that extend beyond a brighter smile, making it a popular cosmetic dental procedure. Here are some of the key advantages:

1

Enhanced Aesthetics

The most obvious benefit is a whiter, more attractive smile. Teeth whitening can significantly reduce or eliminate stains and discolouration, boosting your confidence and self-esteem.
2

Youthful Appearance

Whiter teeth are often associated with youth and vitality. Teeth whitening can help you achieve a more youthful look by restoring the brightness of your smile.
3

Improved Self-Confidence

A dazzling smile can boost your self-confidence and encourage you to smile more often, improving your social and professional interactions.
4

Non-Invasive

Teeth whitening is a non-invasive procedure that doesn’t require any drilling or removal of tooth structure, making it a safe and straightforward cosmetic option.
5

Quick Results

Many teeth whitening treatments provide rapid results, allowing you to see a noticeable difference in just one or two sessions.
6

Customisable

Teeth whitening can be tailored to your specific needs and preferences, ensuring that you achieve your desired level of whiteness.
7

Minimises the Appearance of Ageing

As we age, our teeth naturally darken. Teeth whitening can reverse this process, helping to create a more youthful appearance.
8

Long-Lasting

While the duration of results can vary, teeth whitening can provide long-lasting benefits, especially with good oral hygiene and regular touch-ups.
9

Safe and Effective

Professional teeth whitening procedures are conducted under the supervision of a dentist, ensuring both safety and effectiveness.
10

Positive Psychological Impact

A brighter smile can lead to a more positive outlook on life, helping to reduce stress and increase overall happiness.
