Perhaps you have always dreamed of having a bright, radiant smile or maybe your teeth are not as white as they once were. If so, a professional teeth whitening treatment could be the solution. This is one of the most popular procedures currently offered by UK dentists and, in the following blog, we highlight the top 5 reasons why you should bite the bullet and book your first appointment today.
5 Reasons to have your teeth professionally whitened
Countless toothpaste and mouthwashes that can be bought over-the-counter claim to brighten teeth; but, in most cases, these products only remove surface stains and their effect is barely noticeable. A professional tooth whitening procedure is often necessary to achieve the results that you desire – such as zoom tooth whitening or home whitening kits provided by a specialist dentist.
These procedures and kits employ a teeth whitening gel, which speeds up the whitening process and leads to outstanding results. You will finally have the photogenic smile that you have always wanted, and with the right care and maintenance, the effects of the treatment can last for up to 3 years.
If a special occasion is fast-approaching and you would like to create a dazzling smile for the big day, professional tooth whitening is the perfect option for you. A zoom whitening treatment typically involves 3 sessions or less and, thanks to the use of hydrogen peroxide gel, the effects appear immediately following your first appointment. You could have whiter teeth in a matter of minutes!
Although over-the-counter tooth whitening products are safe to use, there is still an element of risk, and side effects – such as gum irritation and sensitivity – are very common.
By contrast, there are virtually no risks or side effects associated with professional tooth whitening treatments. Your dentist will start by thoroughly checking your teeth and gums, making sure they are healthy enough for the procedure, and stains will be removed without harming your teeth.
Oral hygiene habits
If you have invested in professional tooth whitening, you are more likely to adopt good oral hygiene habits afterwards. You may brush and floss more regularly, avoid cigarettes and dark drinks, and attend routine dental checks – all in an effort to maintain the whitening effects. These habits will not only improve your smile, but they can also help to prevent disease and improve your oral health.
The full smile ‘make-over’
A zoom whitening procedure is a fantastic way to improve the appearance of your teeth; however, in some instances, additional work may be needed to create a ‘perfect’ smile. For example, if your teeth are crooked or gapped, you may need to consider Invisalign® braces or veneers.
Professional dental surgeries typically offer a wide range of treatments and, during your initial consultation, you should discuss exactly which treatments you need to create the best results.
