How Professional Teeth Whitening Can Improve Your Smile and Confidence

20/07/2020

Your smile is one of your greatest assets, and you deserve to look and feel your best whether you are heading to work or out for a night on the town. It is natural for your teeth to discolour over time, and persistent stains can be next to impossible to remove through brushing and over the counter whitening treatments alone. If you’re hoping to restore your pearly white smile, cosmetic dentistry is the answer to your concerns. At Sparkling Dental we take great pride in delivering outstanding teeth whitening results for our clients, and we offer both in-chair whitening and take-home whitening kits. 

If you’ve lost confidence in your smile, don’t despair – a brighter, whiter smile is only one appointment away. Below we will highlight some great reasons to consider professional teeth whitening at Sparkling Dental.

Instantly Improve Your Smile and Self Confidence

A study by the universities of Leeds and Central Lancashire found that those with white teeth were perceived to be in better health and possess higher quality genetics than those with discoloured teeth. Cosmetic dentistry is a straightforward, quick and cost-effective way to improve the appearance of your teeth and restore confidence in your smile. Not everyone is a fan of stark white teeth, but a positive benefit of professional teeth whitening is that kits and treatments can be customised according to your desired shade. From the very first treatment, you’ll be looking and feeling your best.

Convenient and Easy to Maintain

With the option of in-chair whitening and take-home whitening kits, you can freshen up your smile any time you feel the need. In-chair whitening takes just one hour and will provide immediate results, whilst custom-fitted take home trays and gel can be used throughout the year to remove tough stains and maintain your pearly whites. 

Safe with Minimal Side Effects

Professional teeth whitening utilises hydrogen peroxide as a bleaching agent, which is safe for use on teeth and will not cause any damage to enamel when used according to your dentist’s instructions. You may experience tooth sensitivity for a brief period following treatment, however symptoms will subside within a few days. At Sparkling Dental, we also apply treatment following the whitening procedure to minimise the chances of you experiencing any post-treatment pain or sensitivity. Professional teeth whitening is a far superior method to over-the-counter treatments, as it is administered professionally, more effective and has less side effects.

Customised to Suit Your Needs

Off the shelf teeth whitening kits take a ‘one size fits all’ approach, and almost never deliver the results promised on the packaging. In fact, it is not uncommon for these kits to do more harm to your teeth than good. By visiting Sparkling Dental and having custom trays prepared for your teeth, you can be assured of a comfortable fit which will ensure optimal coverage of whitening gel whilst also protecting your gums and lips. During your initial consultation, your dentist will run through your options and ascertain which shade of white you hope to achieve. With professional teeth whitening, you can have confidence in achieving stunning, long lasting results in line with your expectations.

Improved Oral Health and Motivation to Look After Your Teeth

A white, bright smile is a great positive – but it is important to look after your overall oral health too. One of the lesser known benefits of professional teeth whitening is that it can also aid in removing harmful bacteria, which is a risk factor for gum disease and tooth decay. In chair whitening will effectively remove any plaque and germs stuck between your teeth, so you can smile with confidence knowing that not only do your teeth look great, they are also in optimal health. 

It is not uncommon for individuals who have had their teeth professionally whitened to maintain stricter oral hygiene following the procedure, with twice a day brushing/flossing and scheduled visits to Sparkling Dental going a long way in ensuring long lasting results. If you needed some motivation to look after your teeth, a whitening procedure is ideal for you.
