There’s a warm glow in the air and everyone is looking forward to the summer, so what better way to celebrate than with a bright new smile? Our whitening services cater for everyone, with a range of convenient and affordable options to suit all.
Our home whitening kits
At Dublin18 Dental Care, we are well aware that time is of the essence and we offer amazingly convenient whitening treatment for patients who are pushed for time and looking for a simple and easy way of getting a gorgeous, glowing smile. Our home whitening kits are easy to use and the results are very impressive. All patients have to do is wear a bespoke whitening tray for a period of time at home. The tray contains whitening agent, which gradually lightens the shade of the teeth, giving you a beautiful new smile. Patients are advised to wear their whitening trays at night, so that treatment does not impact on their day to day life. With this treatment, you can expect your teeth to look up to five shades whiter in just 2 weeks!
What are the benefits of tooth whitening?
The most obvious benefit of tooth whitening treatment is a more attractive smile, but this can also trigger additional benefits, including increased self-esteem and greater confidence. Many people who have yellow, stained teeth admit that they are reluctant to smile in public because they are conscious of the appearance of their teeth and whitening can help to eradicate these concerns.
We comply with the latest EU regulations regarding the use of premium whitening products and all our treatments are approved for use in the European Union. We no longer offer Zoom! whitening treatment, but have found home whitening treatments to be extremely effective.
Teeth whitening is big business nowadays, but there are so many different methods it can be difficult to decide which one to go for. Luckily this post is designed to help you choose the best option.
There are many products out there that promise to whiten your teeth for a fraction of the cost of a visit to a professional. These include:
- Whitening toothpastes: are the most accessible treatments and can be used daily. It is important to note, however, that these products are great at removing stains and plaque, but most of them will not whiten your teeth beyond their natural colour.
- Whitening strips: can be bought over the counter and are applied in your own home. Many reviews state that these products can make a noticeable difference, especially when maintaining whiteness achieved during professional treatments.
- Whitening trays: are moulded around your teeth and can often be worn several times to maintain whiteness.
The above products have been shown to produce whitening effects and are perfect for people who just want their teeth to be a couple of shades brighter. These products contain chemicals that can be harmful to your mouth, so care should be taken and you should always follow the instructions.
When considering professional teeth whitening, it is important to consult the team at Dublin18 Dental Care serving Dun Laoghaire first, which will help you find the method that is right for you. Laser whitening, for example, is becoming increasingly popular, because the procedure generally doesn’t take long and the results can be seen immediately. Professional methods are sometimes similar to home remedies, for example your dentist can provide you with a mouth tray to use at home. These treatments often involve a greater concentration of hydrogen peroxide and therefore provided brighter and longer lasting results
It is important to note that no whitening treatment can last forever and repeat applications may be necessary after a year or two.
