Or do you prefer to drink gallons of tea through out the day? Maybe you like to wind down over a great meal with a glass or 2 of Malbec or some other delicious red wine? If any, or all of these, sound like you then your teeth could have lost their natural pearly whiteness, which is now hidden away under years of staining from your favourite tipples.
Luckily, getting your gleaming smile back couldn’t be easier with teeth whitening in Belfast from us at Blue Sky Dentistry.
Teeth whitening is a simple, safe procedure when carried out under the care of a dental professional. Yes, you can get over-the-counter whitening products, but they are often not as strong and can also cause damage as the tooth trays, which are one size fits all, are more likely to spill whitening gel into your mouth.
What is whitening gel made of?
The active ingredient used in teeth whitening in Belfast is hydrogen peroxide. This is water with an extra oxygen molecule. It does an amazing job of removing stains by gently lifting them out. In the case of teeth whitening in Belfast, traces of your favourite drinks are lodged in the pores of your enamel. The hydrogen peroxide gets in and dislodges them. It can also lighten the enamel, so your teeth end up whiter than before.
How to get teeth whitening in Belfast
There are 2 ways to get your teeth whitened.
If you want a quick treatment, then you have your whitening carried out at the clinic. With power whitening, we protect your lips and gums with a plastic barrier before painting your teeth with whitening gel. It takes about an hour to lighten your teeth by several shades and then you are good to go.
For a more gradual treatment, we can make bespoke gel trays for you. You wear them every day for a short period and lighten your teeth over 2-3 weeks.
Teeth whitening is not a permanent treatment. Stains come back, but you can extend the life of your treatment by avoiding staining drinks and foods and rinsing after you do have them.
