If you’ve given up smoking for 2019, you definitely deserve a round of applause for dramatically improving your health. However, although you have now increased your general and your oral health by quitting, you will be left with some reminders.
If your teeth have suffered over the years from staining due to smoking or food and drink consumption, you may be wondering what to do next in order to turn back the years on your teeth. The answer is simple, teeth whitening. In Camden, Ace Dental offers teeth whitening at affordable prices using two different approaches.
How it works
Your dentist will take a full imprint of your mouth and create a bespoke whitening tray that will fit snugly over your teeth. A whitening agent is then put into the tray, which we put over your teeth. This process can be administered at the clinic or at home.
At the dentist in Camden, teeth whitening is a very quick, simple procedure. Once the agent has been applied to your teeth, we will activate its whitening ability by exposing it to a UV light. The light then speeds the deep cleaning process, completing in one hour.
Home application is very similar but will take several days. This is a gentle way of whitening the teeth and is appropriate if you want to gradually whiten. You’ll need to wear the whitening trays for a short period every day over a couple of weeks.
Either method is safe and will make your teeth approximately 1-3 shades lighter than their current state. However, it’s not a permanent solution, especially if you continue to consume food and drinks that stain teeth. All you need to do is re-apply the gel every few months, using the same gum guard in order to bring back the extra sparkle and keep your teeth at their optimum state of whiteness.
If you have given up smoking or you have decided it’s time to really rewind the years, teeth whitening in Camden could be the answer you’ve been looking for. Drop in and talk to one of our dentists today for a consultation, you could be on your way to a whiter smile in just one visit to the dentist.
