The benefits of teeth whitening

Teeth whitening offers several benefits beyond the obvious aesthetic improvement of a brighter, whiter smile. Here are some key advantages:

  1. Enhanced Aesthetics: The most apparent benefit is the improvement in the appearance of teeth. Teeth whitening effectively reduces stains and discolouration, resulting in a brighter and more youthful smile.
  2. Increased Confidence: A whiter smile can boost self-confidence and improve self-esteem. Feeling good about the appearance of one’s teeth often translates to increased confidence in social and professional situations.
  3. Anti-Aging Effect: As individuals age, tooth enamel naturally wears down, revealing the yellowish dentin underneath. Teeth whitening can reverse the effects of aging, providing a more youthful and vibrant look.
  4. Improved Oral Hygiene Habits: Individuals who invest in teeth whitening often become more conscientious about their oral hygiene. Knowing that the effects of whitening can be maintained with good oral care encourages regular brushing, flossing, and dental check-ups.
  5. Quick and Non-Invasive: Teeth whitening is a relatively quick and non-invasive cosmetic procedure.
  6. Customisable Results: Professional teeth whitening allows for customisable results based on individual preferences. Our dentist can tailor the treatment to achieve the desired level of whiteness, ensuring a natural and pleasing outcome.
  7. Safe and Effective: When performed under the supervision of a dental professional, teeth whitening is a safe and effective procedure. Professional-grade products and techniques minimize the risk of sensitivity or damage to the teeth and gums.
  8. Long-Lasting Results: While the duration of results may vary depending on lifestyle factors, professional teeth whitening can provide long-lasting effects. Regular maintenance and avoiding stain-causing substances can help extend the longevity of the whitening results.

Dentist-supervised teeth whitening

Teeth whitening is one of the most effective ways to change the colour of your teeth. Our teeth absorb stains from food, drink, and other lifestyle choices such as smoking. These deep-set stains cannot be removed by brushing alone, only teeth whitening can restore their whiteness.

Dentist-supervised teeth whitening is the best way to achieve whiter teeth without damaging the enamel. Damage to the enamel can lead to increased sensitivity, damage to the gums and uneven whitening. We recommend putting teeth whitening in the hands of the experts to achieve incredible results.

The process teeth whitening

At Devonshire Dental Care, our dentist will make an impression on your teeth to create custom trays. You will then apply a whitening solution to the trays and wear them overnight for two weeks. At the end of your treatment plan, you’ll return to the dentist for one final whitening treatment.

The whitening solution penetrates deep into the tooth and breaks up the bonds between the staining particles. Once broken down, the stains can be flushed out, leaving your teeth looking whiter and brighter. Teeth whitening will also remove surface stains.

Good candidates for teeth whitening

If you have staining caused by food, drink or smoking, you could be an ideal candidate for teeth whitening. If your teeth are stained due to injury or trauma, or if you have medications that have left your teeth discoloured, teeth whitening might not be as effective.

If you are not a suitable candidate for teeth whitening, we can recommend alternative treatments such as veneers, crowns or composite bonding. These treatments will conceal discolouration and protect the underlying tooth structure.

Frequently asked questions

Does teeth whitening hurt?

While you should not have any pain during your treatment, there is the possibility of minimal discomfort. You may notice your teeth feel slightly more sensitive during the treatment, and may be more sensitive to hot and cold after a whitening treatment. This is because the small holes that allow the whitening solution into your teeth need to close again.

Unsafe teeth whitening is often associated with pain. If your whitening trays are not custom-made for you, there is a risk of getting the whitening solution on your gums which can cause burns. This is why we recommend professional teeth whitening to protect your oral health.

What can teeth whitening do?

Teeth whitening, offered at our practice in Scotland is a very simple yet effective way of swiftly lightening the shade or colour of your teeth. It also does not require any removal of tooth surface. These methods can only lighten the existing shade of teeth, not change the colour entirely.

How long does a teeth whitening procedure take?

During the initial visit, your dentist will take a scanned image of your teeth in order to make the custom whitening tray.  This involves applying the whitening formula for periods of up to an hour during the next two to four weeks. Some products can allow for the same results to be achieved within a week. You would require a second visit to the practice to have your custom trays fitted.

Why might my teeth need to be whitened?

Everybody will have his or her own feelings and opinions, but our teeth colour, like everything else, varies from person to person. Very few people have a naturally brilliant white smile. Teeth tend to become more yellow with age and can become stained by foodstuffs such as coffee and tea. Excessive build up of tartar will also change the appearance of teeth colour, as it has a darker yellow shade. All of these types of discolouration are common so teeth whitening may be a good option. It may also be necessary for those who have staining inside their teeth or those affected by antibiotic staining.

How happy am I likely to be with the results?

The original shade of the teeth will have an effect on the final results of tooth whitening treatment. Everyone is different, but the effects usually last from between one and two years. It is important to note that the initial period after treatment can result in tooth sensitivity. Given just a short amount of time afterwards though, this wears off.

What about home whitening kits?

Home whitening kits that can be purchased freely over the counter have been proven to be much less effective than professional whitening. They only contain small amounts of the peroxide bleaching agents and the results do not last as long. Some products are even abrasive and contain acids so, while they might be cheaper, they can damage your teeth and gums. It is advised that whitening treatment is done professionally by a dentist after thorough assessments and evaluations of your teeth.

Will teeth whitening not work at any point?

Whitening might not work in achieving the desired shade of white that you were looking for. It only works on natural teeth and not on any type of false tooth fittings including dentures, veneers and crowns. These fittings can only be whitened if they are professionally cleaned or in most cases replaced entirely. However, if a specific and dramatic change of tooth shade is desired then veneers might be a good option.

Can I use whitening toothpaste?

There are a number of whitening toothpastes available. However, they do not affect the natural colour of the tooth. This is why teeth whitening in Glasgow from our experienced dentist is so highly valued. Instead, they help to remove stains on the tooth surface. Once teeth have been whitened professionally, whitening toothpastes might help in maintaining their improved appearance.

Devonshire Dental Care provides the best dental care that I have ever experienced. I recently developed a bad toothache and after having no sleep overnight, I called them as soon as they opened and not only did Nicola and her team fit me in but also relieved my pain. Nicola also went above and beyond in my opinion when she called me later in the day to see if I was doing ok and to let me know I should come back in if I had any problems. Thank you Nicola and the amazing team at Devonshire Dental, you are outstanding and I cannot recommend you more.

I went to Devonshire on a friend’s recommendation after receiving a treatment plan from another dentist indicating I need 4 fillings. Nicola made me feel at ease from the moment I walked in. Her professionalism is complemented by her friendly demeanour. Nicola advised I only needed 1 filling rather than 4. The filling was done perfectly and looks completely natural. My hygiene appointment was quick and thorough. The staff are really friendly and professional. Having trust in your dentist is so important and seeing Nicola has made me feel glad I came to the practice. I’ll be a returning patient and will recommend to all friends and colleagues.

I can’t say enough good things about Devonshire dental care and Mr Alan Rennie. Everyone there has a very relaxed and friendly approach, Alan talks you through your treatment options thoroughly and, after seeing him for 10 years I can confirm his work is to a very high stardard. I have been terrified of the dentist my whole life but going to Alan Rennie has really helped calm me down to the point going is much easier.
