If you want to freshen up a tired room in your house, the easiest way to do it is to put a fresh coat of paint on the walls to cover up stains and smears and the natural effects of ageing that seems to turn things yellow. It’s the same with teeth. The best way to freshen up your smile is to use teeth whitening in Camden.
Worldwide, as well as in Camden, teeth whitening is the most popular form of cosmetic treatment because it is non-invasive and an easy way to brighten up tired, discoloured teeth. Teeth naturally discolour as we age. Also, certain drinks, such as red wine, tea, and coffee, and certain medications can discolour teeth, as their porous enamel retains the pigments from these substances. And let’s not forget what tobacco smoke can do to teeth.
At Ace Dental in Camden, teeth whitening relies on a hydrogen peroxide gel to bleach the enamel.
There are 2 options for teeth whitening in Camden. Let’s take a look at them:
Teeth whitening in the clinic
This is the fastest way to get your teeth whitened. It only takes one appointment in our whitening room at Ace Dental. You lie back while one of our dentists fits protective barriers over your gums and lips before putting a tray of more concentrated power whitening gel over your teeth. Then all you have to do is watch TV or listen to music for an hour. As you rest up, the gel works on your tooth enamel, lightening it by several shades.
Teeth whitening at home
Alternatively, you can whiten your teeth yourself at home, using one of our special kits. This also has a lightweight plastic mould made to fit your teeth for maximum contact with the gel. The gel for home use is less concentrated, so you will need to wear the mould for a few hours a day, or at night, every day for at least 2 weeks before you start to see results.
Teeth whitening lasts only as long as you take care not to re-stain your teeth, so it’s good to watch what you consume and brush carefully with a fluoride toothpaste at least twice a day.Back to Blog
