At Ace Dental in Camden, teeth whitening is one of our favourite cosmetic treatments. We know that this easy and quick procedure can have a profound impact. Patients tell us that a simple brightening up of their smile has helped them to feel more confident, smile more often and feel more at ease for a big occasion such as a wedding or important job interview.
We use three different brands for teeth whitening in Camden: Zoom, Boutique and Enlighten – they are all well-established brands with a proven track record, each offering different options for shining up your pearly whites.
Before you can go ahead with teeth whitening in Camden, you’ll need to come in for a consultation, so our cosmetic dentist can check that it’s the right procedure for you.
Not all stains can be removed with whitening gel: some teeth are more naturally yellow than others, disease can leave the teeth yellow and certain medications create stains that can’t be removed. Veneers are a better option if this is the case for you.
What teeth whitening in Camden is great for is removing stains that have built up over time, such as those from tobacco, tea and coffee, red wine and highly pigmented berries.
If your teeth are suitable for lightening up, the next step is to decide which method you want to use.
In-clinic teeth whitening in Camden
This is also known as power whitening because it is so fast-acting; it takes about 90 minutes in the dentist’s chair. Our cosmetic dentist will protect your teeth and gums with a shield, apply whitening gel to your teeth, then activate it with a UV light. Our treatment is especially luxurious, as you relax in a massage chair, while watching TV or listening to music.
This can be just as effective as power whitening though it needs a little longer to take effect. We will create custom-made whitening trays for you to apply the gel to your teeth without affecting your gums. You wear the trays every day for a few hours or overnight for about two weeks.Back to Blog
