Everyone deserves to feel good about themselves and confident about the way they look. While there are many ways to improve our appearance, teeth whitening is one of the quickest, easiest and most effective.
Whiter teeth can boost your confidence and self-esteem. As your favourite dentists in Dublin D4, we have laid out everything you need to know about teeth whitening, including what it is, how it can benefit you and how we go about polishing up your pearly whites until they shine.
What Causes Stains on Teeth?
Stains on teeth can be caused by a number of factors:
- Certain foods and drinks — Drinking coffee, tea, cola or red wine eventually takes a toll on your teeth.
- Smoking — Nicotine and tar is the main cause of yellowing and dental staining for smokers, as they seep into a tooth’s enamel through tiny pores.
- Ageing — Unfortunately, the simple act of ageing can cause your teeth to discolour a few shades.
- Genetics — Genetics can cause some people to have more porous enamel than others. The more porous teeth are, the more likely they are to get stained.
- Medication — Certain medications, such as antibiotics, can also cause darker grey-coloured stains.
What Is Tooth Whitening?
Teeth whitening is the process of lightening teeth in an attempt to remove stains and discolouration. As one of the most popular cosmetic dental procedures, it’s a quick, simple and effective means of boosting your self-esteem.
What Are the Advantages and Benefits of Teeth Whitening?
In a short amount of time, your teeth can be brightened by six shades or more. Bright white teeth can impact your whole appearance. A whiter grin can make you look younger and more energised while making you feel more confident. The more confident you are with your teeth, the more likely you are to smile, and studies have shown that the more you grin, the more your brain releases chemicals that produce positive, uplifting feelings.
On top of all this, at Pembroke Dental Ballsbridge, we find that after a teeth whitening procedure, oral health is actually improved. This is because once a patient has invested the time and money to whiten their teeth, they are more incentivised to take better care of their overall dental health.
Teeth Whitening Before and After
There Are Different Routes to Bright White Teeth
There are a variety of professional methods for restoring a bright white smile. These include dental veneers, composite bonding, dental implants and teeth whitening (also known as bleaching).
However, at Pembroke Dental Ballsbridge, we use the industry leading Philips Zoom! DayWhite NiteWhite take-home whitening treatment gel to achieve long lasting, more natural results without the sensitivity of in-surgery teeth whitening. We manufacture the bespoke take-home kit in-house so that it can be collected and used on the same day.
Our Teeth Whitening Process
Philips Zoom! allows us to whiten your teeth up to 6 shades in as little as 45 minutes. To make matters better, you get to enjoy the benefit of sparkling teeth with little to no sensitivity.
You will need to make an initial appointment with Pembroke Dental Ballsbridge to ensure your teeth and gums are suitable for the treatment. Once you’re given the go-ahead, we’ll make moulds of your teeth so we can design custom-made trays which you can use for at-home top ups.
