Teeth Whitening Treatments London

Having your teeth whitened in London will make your teeth more attractive and erase stains and discoloration to improve the overall appearance of your teeth. Teeth whitening is one of the most popular of the cosmetic dental procedures, as it is a safe procedure when performed by a knowledgeable professional. Whitening results depend on the severity of the discolouration.

There are many teeth whitening products and treatments available in London. Which one is suitable for you and how will you react to the procedure? Come to Dulwich Dental Office (DDO) in London, for a personal consultation with one of our experienced professionals to discuss which is the best option for you. During your consultation, you will have the opportunity to ask us any questions and decide whether you would like to proceed with one of our Teeth Whitening treatment plans.

In order to understand the reason for tooth discoloration, it’s important to know the anatomical structures of your teeth. The outermost, thin layer of your teeth is known as enamel, while the inner, thick layer is called dentine. The enamel is whiter than the dentine, the dentine contains tubules that lead to the inner chamber of the tooth containing the vascular and nervous system. When you consume foods or beverages the pigments can attach to your tooth surface and penetrate its outer layer. Our teeth are exposed to food dyes and other substances on a regular basis, so long-term exposure to these pigments can cause teeth to lose their white colour. This discoloration process is referred to as intrinsic staining, and it is one of the most common reasons for people to seek our whitening services.

At times, vital and non-vital teeth can be whitened, which may require several visits to complete. It is ineffective on dental restorations such as amalgam fillings, metal, or porcelain crowns, etc. Your dentist can advise you concerning the proper whitening treatment following an examination of your teeth to establish the cause of your discolouration.

Our London based dentists will provide you with more information on the different varieties of whitening procedures available, its duration and frequency.

You may worry that off-white teeth are a sign that you don’t maintain good oral hygiene. That is not necessarily the case. A combination of factors may cause your teeth to appear lacklustre. The white, inner enamel of your mouth can start to thin over time, letting the underlying dentin underneath become more obvious. This causes your teeth to appear slightly yellow. Smoking or drinking excessive amounts of tea and coffee may damage your teeth, just as eating spicy, acidic, or sugary foods. Teeth whitening penetrates stains and brightens your teeth in no time, giving your smile a healthy, radiant glow.

From our Dulwich Dental Office (DDO) in London, we’ll take some time to evaluate your present-day health and assess the causes of discoloration and to ascertain the role played by physical and dental health on staining and discoloration. It is also vital that we assess your mouth as a whole, since if there is any other issue such as swollen gums, or undiagnosed tooth decay, it may be safer to treat this first. We will take a shade of your tooth using a Vita shade guide that is globally used to classify tooth shade colour.

The colour that is closest to the tooth’s shade, is picked to be your base or initial shade before treatment. Most patients are capable of reaching Hollywood white even though you will have good control of how white you reach, and it is known that the shade of whiteness is also determined by the genetic pre-determined structure of your tooth.

There are 3 common stages of the Teeth Whitening process

We will firstly take an accurate impression of your teeth using a special material such as silicone polymer or alginate. We may also scan your teeth, but this is not always necessary. Using this mould, our dental technician can then move onto the next stage of your whitening treatment.
Within twenty-four hours our dental technicians will cast the mould into a stone replica of your teeth including their surrounding soft tissues. A second vacuum form mould is then created with a precisely measured space where we wish the teeth whitening medicine to stay. This makes sure that the carbamide peroxide whitener will not come into contact with any other part of your mouth, making the treatment safe. The trays are designed to your precise measurements, and are manufactured by UK general dental council registered technicians.

At your next appointment with us, our dental assistants will do a five-point check on your trays, then place them on your teeth to make sure they fit well. We will help you select the two types of whitening schedules that are available to you and go through the benefits of both. We can prescribe you a day whitening system where you leave the trays in for brief durations during the day to attain the outcome you desire, or additionally you can use a night gel where you can leave your trays in throughout the night.
Our gel formulas address B1 tone, which is considered to be the most natural looking shade of white. We predict it will take at least seven to fourteen days before you reach your preferred shade. To maintain the whiter shade of your teeth, you don’t have to go through the entire process again, simply use the same whitening tray and gel that was provided at your previous appointment.

Tomike O.

I lost my two front teeth whilst at school and had complications for years. Unfortunately I ended up needing an implant – which I had been avoiding! I wish I had done it sooner. Dr Patel was fantastic and guided me through each stage. He was always contactable to answer any queries or concerns. Very happy with the end result and would reccomend.

Tom O.

Registered and seen on the NHS within 2 weeks – amazing. Really friendly staff, would definitely recommend

Tom C.

I have recently finished an invisalign program with Pooja at dulwich dental office and couldn’t be happier. The treatment was easy and pain free and the results are great. Pooja’s experience and friendliness made me feel at ease throughout. I would 100% recommend for anyone considering similar treatment.

Toby B.

A great surgery; Dr Cavan in particular spent time with me to make sure my new night guards fitted well and were up to the job

Dentist Pooja Pillay is excellent and was very patient with me as I I took a long time (years!) deciding whether or not to take the plunge and have Invisalign to straighten my teeth. It didn’t take too long and was easier than I thought it would be. Pooja kept a close eye on how it was all progressing and we even went a bit longer with it just to really perfect the result. I’m delighted with the outcome. Everything was included in the price, even the extra aligners and appointments when we decided to go on a bit longer. All staff at the practice have been excellent. Highly recommend.

Susie F.

I had my Invisaligns done by Dr Pillay and she really took the time to make sure my teeth are lovely and straight. She has always been available with any queries or follow up treatment I needed – and made me feel well looked after from the beginning and end of the treatment. I really recommend seeing her if you want to get Invisaligns done.

Stella C.

Dr. Cavan is super attentive and thoughtful and great at putting is patients at ease. I hate going to the dentist but havent dreaded it once. Everyone is super friendly and clinic is nice. I could not recommend more.

I am undergoing a course of Invisalign treatment with Dulwich Dental Office and I am so pleased with the results, even at this early stage. It is great that I can take the braces out to eat and clean my teeth. I am looking forward to the end result.
