In our modern world, where TV, magazines and social media are the epicentre of attention, we are constantly bombarded with people sporting the most impressive set of white teeth. It’s common knowledge that most celebrities have had work done on their teeth to make them whiter, yet this doesn’t stop us from feeling inadequate about the state of our own teeth.
Teeth whitening is a popular, painless and effective cosmetic dentistry procedure carried at many dental practices in the UK. At Ace Dental we offer different types of teeth whitening in Camden and one of our popular choices is Enlighten. This technology has been around for at least 10 years with highly reliable results around the world.
How teeth become discoloured
As we grow older, our teeth tend to become yellow and discoloured, affecting our smiles and making us feel older than we actually are. This can have knock-on effects on your self-esteem.
Why does this happen? Because teeth are subject to wear and as the enamel wears away, the inner layer of the tooth is exposed, which is yellower in colour. Certain medications can also make teeth appear yellow and cause stains.
Then of course are lifestyle habits, smoking, eating highly pigmented foods and drinking tea, coffee and red wine, all of which result in the build-up of stains.
How can Enlighten teeth whitening help?
There are now many teeth whitening products available, but we always recommend whitening your teeth with the help of a dentist, as this is the only safe method and has been proven to produce the most reliable results.
At Ace Dental, we use Enlighten technology among other whitening treatments. This treatment involves wearing custom-made whitening trays containing a whitening gel to gradually improve the shade of your teeth. You wear the trays overnight or for a few hours during the day for 2 to 3 weeks, depending on the shade of whiteness you wish to achieve. At the end of the treatment, you can proudly display your new smile with the natural gleam of your teeth restored.
