Do you want to brighten your smile? A youthful, healthy-looking smile can help you feel more confident in professional, social, and even romantic situations. In recent years, there have been many developments in teeth whitening techniques to allow consumers to achieve whiter teeth quickly and safely.
When you decide to whiten your teeth, it is really important to get the best professional teeth whitening care and advice. At Blue Sky Dentistry, we offer two types of teeth whitening in Northern Ireland – power whitening and home whitening. Both treatments are safe and effective.
Some enemies of white teeth
If you have noticed your teeth getting darker or yellower over time, you may be wondering what causes them to stain. Caffeine, wine, and smoking are some of the biggest culprits; however, there are other factors at play. Ageing and genetics can determine the shade of your teeth, while certain medications can also stain your teeth. Finally, highly-pigmented foods change the colour of your teeth over time.
Power teeth whitening in Northern Ireland is performed in just one visit to our dental practice. It is an effective treatment option for patients who wish to have their teeth whitened in an hour or less. To whiten your teeth, we will apply bleaching gel to the surface of each tooth and activate it with a special light in two to three stages. After the treatment, you can expect your teeth to look brighter by several shades.
Home teeth whitening involves the creation of custom-made bleaching trays to provide you with the very best results. Wear your personalised trays along with bleaching gel as directed by your dentist for a few hours every day. You will begin to notice brighter teeth after the first application, but continue using the bleaching trays for maximum results. If you experience sensitivity, use the trays every other day or consult with your dentist. Results take about two weeks.
Say goodbye to yellow teeth
By following some simple care instructions, your teeth will always be whiter than they were before. We recommend brushing and flossing daily as well as using professional products offered by our practice, which are designed to keep your teeth brighter for longer.
