Cosmetic Dentistry and Teeth Whitening Treatments at Fourways Cosmetic dental treatments in Borough Green
With the rise of social media, cosmetic dentistry has been brought to the forefront, with a great deal of interest from patients as well as within dentistry. This has resulted in a number of exciting innovations and developments in the ways we can help you achieve the smile you’ve always wanted.
What cosmetic dentistry services are available?
White fillings, crowns, veneers and bridges give you back your smile or make it even better than before.
Modern orthodontics are discreet and convenient to straighten your teeth without disrupting your busy life.
Safe, painless and very effective at not only removing stains, but getting your teeth whiter than they ever were.
As we age, our teeth become naturally darker, a fact not helped by some of the food we eat. Daily habits such as smoking, and drinking lots of tea, coffee, fruit juices and red wine all add to staining, which affects the overall colour of our teeth. Teeth whitening (also known as ‘bleaching’) can be a very effective way of lightening the natural colour of your teeth without damaging or removing any of the tooth surface.There are a number of over-the-counter products available to superficially whiten teeth, such as whitening toothpastes. Although these can help remove plaque and surface stains, they are not able to produce dramatic
whitening results because they can’t change the underlying colour of your teeth.Peroxide-based whitening gels and whitening strips, which are applied directly onto the surface of your teeth are also available, but they should be used with care and their effectiveness cannot be assured. For truly safe and effective whitening results, we recommend using professional whitening treatments under the supervision of a dentist or qualified hygienist. These treatments contain whitening agent at a concentration that is not available in over-the-counter products and which can only be prescribed by a dental professional.
We offer three different teeth whitening systems:
Poladay and Polanight are at-home whitening systems, designed to be gentle and convenient. They are specially-formulated to release fluoride as they whiten, which re-mineralises the tooth to prevent increased sensitivity.
Illuminé is another tray-based bleaching system, designed for you to have your first treatment applied by us and thereafter in the comfort of your own home, over the course of approximately two weeks. A 6-9 shade change is possible using Illuminé.
Enlighten Evolution Whitening is a combination of in-surgery and at-home whitening. It's the only method to guarantee Vita shade B1 for every patient, regardless of the starting shade of your teeth. Enlighten offers long-lasting whitening results with low sensitivity.
