Teeth whitening

Smile bright like a diamond

To riff off Rihanna, who doesn’t want to smile bright like a diamond? A dazzling smile has the amazing effect of making people instantly warm to you. It’s a great advantage to have at an interview, on a date, or just to make the day go that little bit smoother. When we’re kids, a dazzling smile seems to be natural but as we get older those signs of wear and tear start to make our teeth look rather dull. But there is a solution: teeth whitening in Camden.

Teeth Whitening in CamdenAt Ace Dental, we’ve brought brighter smiles to countless patients across London. We’ve helped them get rid of years of stains built up from drinking red wine, coffee and tea, eating delicious curries and tomato sauce-laden pasta and even that habit we all know should be kicked, smoking.

How does it work?

Teeth whitening uses a whitening gel with the active ingredient of hydrogen peroxide. This bleaching agent lifts off stains from the surface of your teeth. It doesn’t work on restorations, such as crowns or veneers. So if you want teeth whitening in Camden, get it done before you have your restorations put in and then have your restorations coloured to match.

You can either have your teeth whitening in Camden done at our dental practice or at home. If you’re in need of speed, then in-clinic whitening is the way to go. We’ll protect your gums and lips and then apply a concentrated whitening gel to your teeth. In under 2 hours your teeth will be a whole lot brighter and whiter, how much so depends on what you want and the extent of the staining or discolouration.

If you want a more subtle transformation of your teeth, then go with at-home whitening. We’ll provide you with bespoke teeth trays that fit snugly over your teeth. You place a less concentrated whitening gel inside and wear these trays for a few hours every day for around 2 weeks.

How long does teeth whitening last?

That depends on you. Keep up with a good oral hygiene routine, including hygienist visits, avoid strongly staining foods and drinks and quit smoking and your teeth whitening in Camden could last for several years.

A whiter winter

Now that the clocks have gone back, we are into the long, dark nights of winter. It can seem super gloomy in London, especially if you go to work in the dark and come home in the dark. It’s enough to stop anyone smiling, especially if they already have a smile they aren’t too happy about.

Teeth Whitening in CamdenA quick and easy way to brighten up that winter smile, and so brighten up everyone’s lives around you, is to get teeth whitening. In Camden, you can get your teeth whitened with us at Ace Dental. We use whitening from tried and trusted manufacturers: Zoom! Boutique and Enlighten.

Teeth whitening is our most popular cosmetic dentistry treatment because it doesn’t alter the structure of your teeth and it’s convenient. You can choose from 2 different ways to get your teeth whitened.

It’s a good idea to get a scale and polish before whitening so that there is no plaque obstructing the whitening gel.

Get quick whitening

If you come into the clinic here at Ace Dental, we can use power whitening to make your teeth several shades whiter in around an hour. All you have to do is book an appointment, and when you come in, choose the shade of white you want your smile to be. We then put plastic barriers over your lips and gums to protect them before painting your teeth with power whitening gel. This is stronger than any gels you can legally use at home. It takes about an hour to lift out the stains and get your teeth the shade you want.

Get slower whitening

If you’d rather take your time and save some money, you can buy one of our bespoke whitening kits to use at home. These have custom-made gel trays that fit your teeth exactly to prevent spillage and achieve maximum contact between the gel and your teeth. The gel is less powerful and it will take 2-3 weeks of daily wear for a short period before your teeth reach the shade you want. A bonus of this method is that you can re-use the trays whenever you want for top-up treatments.

Smile brightly with beautiful white teeth

Are you self-conscious about your smile because you feel your teeth are stained and unattractive? If so, a simple teeth-whitening treatment could be the answer. Teeth whitening in Camden is easy, reasonable and can make a big difference to your self-confidence.

Types of teeth-whitening treatments

There are two different types of teeth whitening in Camden you can use. One is called power whitening, and is done at the practice, and the other is home whitening. Both types of whitening use custom-made trays that are made specially to fit your teeth.

Teeth Whitening in CamdenHow power whitening works

Power whitening is carried out at our practice in Camden. Firstly, you will visit us for a consultation, where we will take a look at your teeth and assess what can be done. A special tray will be custom-made to fit over your teeth, then you will come in for your whitening session. We use a bleaching agent containing hydrogen peroxide, which is activated by a special light while you relax in a comfortable chair. Once the treatment is complete, your teeth will be several shades whiter and you can smile with confidence.

More about at home whitening

Teeth whitening in Camden can also be done in the comfort of your own home. Just like with the power whitening, you will start with a consultation so the dentist can ascertain what type of staining your teeth have, and whether it can be treated. You will still have the custom-fitted tray, but the whitening will take place at home. Without the special light, it takes longer for the treatment to take effect, but after several days of using the bleaching agent your teeth will be just as bright as if you had power whitening.

Can teeth whitening in Camden work for everyone?

There are certain types of staining that teeth whitening in Camden isn’t suitable for, but if you come in for a consultation we can tell you whether whitening can work for you. Staining that has built up over time through diet or smoking can usually be treated easily. The whitening doesn’t work on crowns, dentures or veneers though. Visit our practice to see if teeth whitening in Camden is right for you.

Hallowe’en teeth?

As we hurtle through 2018, it can come as a bit of a shock to realise that half-term and Hallowe’en are only weeks away. Already it’s time to start thinking about trick or treating and what to wear for that Hallowe’en party. You went as a Zombie last year, but didn’t everyone? Who will you be this year? And what will you do if people think you are wearing Hallowe’en teeth when they are really your own?

Horrible thought and unlikely to happen, we agree, but staining creeps up on your teeth. One glass of red here, an espresso there, all laying down another layer of staining in the pores in your tooth enamel, where neither your toothbrush nor the hygienist can get at it. What you need is teeth whitening in Camden here at Ace Dental.

Teeth Whitening in CamdenWhat is teeth whitening in Camden?

Teeth whitening works differently from brushes. Instead of trying to scrape out stains with bristles, it uses the action of hydrogen peroxide, a gentle cleaner and disinfectant, that has been used for a couple of centuries now to lift out stains. It gets into the pores and pushes the staining particles out.

Teeth whitening in Camden does not work on intrinsic discolouration. For that you will need to get a veneer or composite bonding to cover it over. But if your stains are surface stains, you are good to go, using one of 2 methods. With both we suggest you start with a deep clean from the hygienist so that the whitening gel can get straight to your teeth.

With us at the clinic

Once you have decided how white you want your teeth to be, we put coverings over your lips and gums. We paint on the whitening gel, and then activate it with a UV light. You get to chill out for about an hour and at the end, you walk out with fabulously white teeth.

At home

We make you some gel trays that fit your teeth exactly and you carry out the whitening at home over about a fortnight. This process is gentler because the gel is less concentrated.

Either way, come Hallowe’en, you’re more likely to be mistaken for Dracula than Frankenstein.

Brighten up your autumn look with teeth whitening in Camden

It’s here already isn’t it, autumn? If you have been out and about recently, you will notice that the light levels have dropped and the gloomy months of dashing between the house, the tube and the office are upon us. Soon, the only light you will see when you are out on the streets will be the headlights of cars sitting in jams in the rain. So, how are you going to keep up your spirits up during the long winter months ahead?

Teeth Whitening in CamdenCan we suggest you be your own flashing beacon of hope by bestowing a really great smile on others? A good smile warms the cockles of people’s hearts and you can be the person who cheers them simply by getting teeth whitening in Camden with us at Ace Dental.

Teeth whitening is our most popular cosmetic dentistry treatment because it is so quick and easy, and doesn’t alter the structure of your teeth in any way. All it does is remove all those stubborn stains, where traces of the foods and drinks you have consumed have sunk into the enamel of your teeth. Tea, coffee, red wine, even berries can get left behind when you consume them and build up until it’s like someone turned down the wattage of your smile.

Turning it up back again is easy and you can even choose how to get it done. You can go for the quick and dramatic change, or the subtle and gradual change.

Quick and dramatic teeth whitening in Camden

Take an hour or so out of your day, come to the Ace Dental clinic on Kentish Town Road and then chill out in our super comfy chair while we whiten your teeth for you. We start by placing a protective plastic barrier over your gums and lips. Then we paint on a whitening gel that is activated by a UV lamp. About an hour later, you will have teeth in the shade of white you have chosen.

Subtle and gradual

Get a bespoke whitening kit, complete with custom-made gel trays, and do the whitening yourself at home over 2-3 weeks.

Brighter teeth

Your teeth can take on a strange variety of colours as you get older. This happens for various reasons. Food and drink leave behind traces on your dental enamel, and these traces can build up into stains. This staining will be especially pronounced if your tooth-brushing habits are not quite as rigorous as they ought to be. At Ace Dental in Camden, teeth whitening will solve this unsightly problem. Our customised and comfortable teeth whitening procedure will turn your discoloured smile into a dazzling one.

Teeth Whitening in CamdenComfortable whitening

Our patients choose teeth whitening in Camden because their teeth’s enamel surfaces are an unsatisfactory colour. While the range of colours can vary, they all tend to be equally unsatisfying to look at. You might have already started trying to hide your smile when laughing or in photographs. By this point, it’s usually very hard to remove the stains using products available over the counter in Camden. Teeth whitening with Ace Dental is a powerful process that significantly brightens the shade of your dental surfaces.

You can choose exactly which shade of white you want to apply to your teeth. Then this new shade will be applied either by power whitening, or the more gradual at-home process.

In power whitening, you’ll be given a tray to wear over your teeth. This tray is customised to fit comfortably inside your mouth, and contains a special whitening agent. As you relax in our treatment chair, we’ll activate the whitening agent with a lamp, and after around an hour and a half, you’ll have a bright new smile and a mouth that feels super-fresh.

At home in Camden, teeth whitening will take place over a couple of weeks. You’ll wear the tray according to our instructions for specific periods of time. Your teeth will become the same shade of white as in power whitening, but the process will be more gradual.

Ease and appearance

Teeth whitening in Camden is a great way to achieve a significant cosmetic benefit. Your bright smile can help you to feel at ease in social situations, leading to an overall boost in your self-image.

Get the world smiling with you

That’s what they say, ‘Smile and the world smiles with you’ and it’s true. Smiles are infectious. They make people feel happy to receive and to give, so why not smile as much as you can? Um, perhaps because your teeth don’t look so great?

Well, at Ace Dental we can help you with that little problem. All you need is to brighten up that grin. Even if your teeth are not perfectly straight, or have the odd chip, if they are a good colour, you will feel so much better about showing them off.

Teeth Whitening in CamdenIn Camden, teeth whitening is a very popular way to enhance the smile and it’s easy to see why. It’s a relatively quick and entirely non-invasive way to brighten up your smile.

Here at Ace Dental, we offer two ways to get teeth whitening in Camden. They are:

Power whitening

This is the way to go if you have an important occasion on the horizon. Book a whitening appointment with us and it will only take around an hour to transform your teeth by several shades. You lie back and relax while we carefully protect your soft tissues (gums etc) with a plastic barrier before painting your teeth with a gel. The hydrogen peroxide in the gel is activated when we turn on a UV lamp and it gets to work, lifting out the traces of tea, coffee, red wine and highly pigmented foods that have become stuck in the pores of your tooth enamel.

At-home kits

You can do all this at home, but over a couple of weeks, for a short period every day, with our take home kits. They contain bespoke gel trays, made to fit you exactly from impressions taken at the clinic. The gel has a weaker solution of hydrogen peroxide, which is why treatment takes longer. This means you can do stealth whitening if you don’t want to shock your friends with a sudden transformation. It also means that when you want to top up your treatment, all you need to do is buy more whitening gel.

Whichever way you choose, we think you’ll be delighted with teeth whitening in Camden.

Two ways to whiter teeth

Many dentists who offer teeth whitening in Camden will only use one brand of whitener. We use three. This is because we know that each patient is unique, and we want to make sure we can offer you a treatment that is really right for you.

It’s also important for us that we provide only high-quality treatments. That’s why we use Enlighten, Zoom! and Boutique Whitening, because they are all tried and tested and we know they work.

Teeth Whitening in CamdenWhichever brand suits you best, there are two different ways can you receive teeth whitening in Camden here at Ace Dental: power whitening and at-home whitening.

Power whitening

This is so called because it uses a powerful, fast-acting whitening gel that gets the job done in around 90 minutes. This treatment takes place at our surgery, in the dentist’s chair. Well, actually, you sit in a relaxing massage chair, where you can take your ease while the gel does its work. Visiting the dentist was never so enjoyable.

First our dentist will protect your gums with a specially made shield to make sure that no high concentration gel gets into the soft tissues of your mouth to cause irritation. Next step is to paint your teeth with the hydrogen peroxide gel. This is then activated by a UV light, and you simply sit back and relax, until, just over an hour later, your teeth are shades lighter.

At-home whitening

If you’d like to carry out the treatment yourself more gently over a longer time period, we can provide you with custom-made whitening trays to use at home. You wear these for a few hours a day, or overnight for about two weeks. You add a lower concentration whitening gel to the trays, which we will provide for you.

However you decide to whiten your teeth, it’s important that you talk to a dentist about teeth whitening in Camden. Off-the-shelf kits may seem appealing and cheap, but the whitening trays aren’t custom-made, which means that the gel may leak onto your gums.

It’s really not worth the risk. Talk to us at Ace Dental about teeth whitening in Camden today.

Don’t let discoloured teeth get you down

Back in the old days, if people had unsightly teeth, they had to grin and bear it. But in the 21st century, there is no reason why anyone should have to feel down about the appearance of their teeth. With modern technologies, dental practices can fix most problems or insecurities you have about your teeth, including stained teeth.

In Camden, teeth whitening is an appealing solution for those who want to feel confident and smart for a business interview or get ready for a special event like a wedding or graduation. Or maybe you just want to start feeling more like yourself and smiling confidently again. Here at Ace Dental, we have the means to get you smiling and speaking without feeling self-conscious about your teeth.

Teeth Whitening in CamdenHow do teeth get stained?

No one has naturally perfectly straight white teeth. Like the rest of our bodies, our teeth are constantly changing. After so many cups of coffees, glasses of red wine, and certain foods, they are likely to show signs of wear. While it’s true that good oral hygiene will prevent your teeth from being too stained, your enamel will naturally wear away as you age.

Other reasons that may lead people to go for teeth whitening in Camden may be stained teeth caused by factors which aren’t directly tooth-related, such as some diseases, certain medications like antihistamines or antipsychotic drugs, or genetics.

Whatever the cause, we can help to lighten the teeth to help you feel better about your smile. Whether that’s a drastic change, or just one or two shades whiter.

What’s involved in the treatment?

While people have busy lives in Camden, teeth whitening doesn’t have to be time consuming. You can have your desired goal in just one visit to Ace Dental.

We offer two types of treatment:

  • Power whitening: Completed by applying a hydrogen peroxide gel to the teeth, which is activated by placing a lamp over the teeth, and sees results in roughly an hour and a half;
  • At home-whitening: Trays are worn for some of the day or night, gently whitening the teeth over several days.

Your dentist will assess the type of staining you have and recommend the best option for you.

Professional teeth whitening in Camden – is it worth it?

Teeth whitening is a quick and relatively low-cost dental treatment that has gained popularity in recent years due to media exposure. Today, teeth whitening is one of the most affordable cosmetic dental treatments and more and more people are motivated to brighten their smile in order to look like fresh and healthy.

Teeth whitening can be performed at home through various DIY remedies available over the counter or in the dentist’s chair. As a general rule, all unmonitored treatments come with certain risks, whether it be a health or other issue. Most over-the-counter products promise quick and impressive results, yet they are not always safe. Professional teeth whitening in Camden, on the other hand, is performed in a controlled environment by our experienced dentists at Ace Dental.

Teeth Whitening in CamdenWhat does professional teeth whitening entail?

Professional teeth whitening is performed always under the supervision of a dentist, who uses specially formulated, customised whitening agents to ensure that your teeth get whiter up to the inner level. Unlike over-the-counter products that target the very surface of the tooth enamel, clinically formulated whitening agents penetrate the tooth enamel and reach the dentin, ensuring that your teeth are properly bleached.

Teeth whitening in Camden can be performed either in the dentist’s chair or at home. At Ace Dental, we use high-quality, tried and trusted whitening products such as Enlighten, Zoom! and Boutique Whitening. Our dentists will assess your type of staining and suggest the best possible treatment.

If you opt for power whitening in the dentist’s chair, we will apply the whitening solution directly on your teeth and help it activate with a special light. After an hour or so, you can leave our practice with a brighter smile.

Home whitening under the supervision of an experienced dentist is equally simple, yet requires more time. Your dentist will provide customised whitening trays that you will have to wear along with whitening gel for a few hours every day. You will be able to see results after two weeks or so.

Safety first

All whitening treatments offered at Ace Dental are very safe and can be performed even on patients with sensitive teeth.
