Did you know what the most popular cosmetic dentistry treatment is all over the world? It’s teeth whitening. In Camden, teeth whitening is just as popular as in the USA or anywhere else in the world, and there are a couple of very good reasons for this.
Look younger and healthier
Pearly white teeth are associated in our minds with being young and healthy. That’s because as the years go by, our teeth lose their pearly whiteness and become duller and yellower. This is partly because the enamel wears thin with years of brushing, allowing the yellower dentin below it to show through.
Our teeth also lose their gleam because enamel is actually porous and it soaks up stains from tea, coffee, red wine, blueberries and tobacco. Even some medications can discolour our teeth. So, if you want to take a few years off your looks, or stop inadvertently adding them on, then teeth whitening in Camden can make a big difference.
Non-invasive cosmetic dentistry
Having cosmetic dentistry often means having the shape, structure or position of your teeth altered in some way. But teeth whitening is totally non-invasive. This means it is often used as a first step in having cosmetic dentistry. It’s also used as a great finishing step when other, longer and more invasive treatments have been taking place. Many people use teeth whitening to add that final sparkle to their teeth when they have their braces removed. Or, if they decide to have veneers they use the opportunity to go a few shades lighter and have their natural teeth whitened to match.
How teeth whitening in Camden works
When you come to us at Ace Dental for teeth whitening, you can choose between two methods. For both of them, you will have special gel trays made to fit your teeth exactly.
You lie back in our massage chair for about 90 minutes and the gel, aided by a special light, will lighten your teeth by several shades.
You use a less concentrated gel in the trays, which you wear for a short time every day. In around two weeks, your teeth will have lightened by several shades.Back to Blog
