Teeth whitening products that can be purchased over-the-counter have limited capabilities to how well they are able to brighten teeth. While they may be the cheaper alternative when compared to professional teeth whitening, patients run the risk of not attaining the brightening effect that they are after.
Tiwari Watson Dental Care has a dentist in Glasgow who has access to professional grade quality teeth whitening products that have proven capabilities in brightening teeth. Dr Kamal Madhok (Dentist) and Dr Laura Grant (Dentist) offer reliable exceptional teeth whitening procedures at our dental clinic. In addition to the superior level of effectiveness, there are plenty of other reasons to have a dentist in Glasgow whiten your teeth.
What can a patient expect from in-clinic teeth whitening treatments
1. Determine the source of teeth discolouration
Before our dentist in Glasgow can carry out a teeth whitening procedure, they will want to ensure that the patient’s oral health is in top condition. This dental exam is important in relation to teeth whitening as teeth discolouration can be caused by many different reasons. It is not always the case that it is due to foods a patient eats that cause teeth to stain, or that a dulling effect is always caused by a smoking habit. Enamel wear, which is a dental concern, is known to make teeth appear dull or yellow and there are measures the dental practitioner can introduce to help protect teeth from further damage.
2. Protect sensitive areas of the mouth
Teeth and gums are sensitive areas of the mouth that can be damaged by products when not used correctly. Patients should always exercise caution with dental products bought over-the-counter that are not recommended by a dentist. Some teeth whitening toothpastes can have an abrasive effect on enamel, or patients may overuse them in the hope of obtaining results in a quicker time frame.
3. Dramatic brightening effects
One of the reasons why products available at the dentist are more powerful in brightening teeth is due to the fact that they contain high-concentrations of the ingredients responsible for lightening the colour of teeth. High levels of these ingredients must be used safely so that teeth and gums are properly protected, and a professional dental practitioner is best placed to perform procedures to ethical standards.
4. Prolonged treatment results
Professional treatments that contain a unique formulae designed around higher levels of certain effective ingredients allow patients to enjoy their brighter looking teeth for a longer period.
Patients who are not sure whether or not to invest in in-office teeth whitening treatments should consider the cosmetic effects of brighter smiles. The effects of a brighter smile include maintaining a more youthful facial appearance and promoting a deeper level of confidence when engaging with others. Also, of equal importance are the proactive habits that a patient will inculcate to protect their brighter smiles, and in so doing, their overall dental health.
