Tooth Whitening Birmingham

Healthy teeth are a vitally important part of daily life. Many of us, however, would prefer our teeth to not only be healthy but also look healthy as well.

When we are not pleased with the way our teeth look, we may also struggle with self-confidence and self-esteem, worried about what other people see or think when they look at our teeth.

Start quote I can sit here and smile now, and I not worry that anyone's judging me based on my smile. I think it does say things about you if you do look after your teeth or you don't. It might be subconscious, but I think that some people will subconsciously make judgements based on that. The fact that I can now smile, and I have no concerns about people seeing my teeth now - it's a big difference to me, it's a huge difference. End quote

One of the main things that effects the appearance of our teeth is the extent to which they look white. That's where Midlands Smile Centres come in.

If you feel that your teeth are not as white as you would like them to be, MSC can help. Our skilled dentists provide tooth whitening treatment that can reduce discolouration and give your teeth a whiter, healthier appearance.

Enlighten Tooth Whitening

The Enlighten Tooth Whitening system is one of our most recommended and widely used tooth whitening programs. This is because it is considered to be the most impressive tooth whitening system in the world, giving excellent results, consistently, with a 98% success rate. Enlighten is guaranteed to whiten your teeth by up to 16 shades, with only minimal sensitivity.

How does it work?

High quality, individually made, close fitting trays are created especially for your mouth. A whitening gel is supplied for you to use in the trays. The trays are worn overnight for two weeks and this is followed by a visit your dentist for a final treatment.

Is it safe? Does it hurt?

It is completely safe. All the ingredients have been used by dentists for more than 100 years. Your dentist will give you some swabs to use, which will immediately alieviate any sensitivity. You will also get some special tooth serum to brush with, which will strengthen and protect your teeth.

How long does it last?

Results can last indefinitely with the right aftercare. Wearing the trays once every two months will help to maintain your new white smile, and continuing to brush with tooth serum will offer you additional protection.

Why do Teeth Become Stained?

The two main causes of tooth discolouration are damage to the enamel, and eating or drinking staining foods.

Enamel is the stuff that covers and protects the inner tooth. It is hard and strong and gives your teeth their pearly white look. Damage to the enamel can be caused by age, accidents, eating acidic or sugary foods, poor dental hygiene, using your teeth as tools and some medication. Each of these things can cause chipping, erosion, scratching, abrasions and/ or deterioration to the teeth.

When the enamel is damaged, two things happen. Firstly, the inner yellow part of the tooth shows through. Secondly, the scratches and abrasions in the enamel break up the smooth, light reflecting surface and create pockets which hold the stains of food and drink.

Food Stains

Staining food and drinks include almost anything with a strong colour. Tobacco, wine, coffee, tea and pop are particularly notorious for staining. Foods such as beetroot, blueberries, tomatoes and vinegar are also known to stain teeth.

Because there are so many substances that can stain your teeth, many of which are nutrionally very good for you, and often very good for your teeth too, it is not a good policy simply to try to avoid any food that might stain your teeth. The alternative therefore is to clean your teeth regularly and to use tooth whitening if necessary.

Tooth Whitening at MSC

The tooth whitening treatment offered by MSC is both effective and uncomplicated. It is also tailored to meet your specific dental needs and to fit in to your daily routine with ease and convenience. Unlike general commercially available home whitening kits, this treatment is specifically designed for your teeth.

Tooth Whitening treatment starts with a visit to your dentist. In this initial consultation, you and your dentist will decide whether this treatment is suitable for you and your teeth. Once your dentist has established that this treatment is right for you, he or she will take a mould of your teeth.

The mould will then go to a specialised dental lab, where it will be used to make your own bespoke, high quality tooth whitening trays. When the trays are ready, you will have another appointment with your dentist to have the trays fitted and make sure that they are comfortable.

You will then be given the tooth whitening trays and some tooth whitening gel to take home, along with instructions in their use. At your own convenience, at a time that fits in with your daily routine, simply fill the trays with whitening gel and wear them for a few hours each day. The length of treatment will vary according to the nature of the discolouration.

When you are satisfied with how white your teeth are, simply stop wearing the trays to end the treatment process. This take home procedure only has an effect on natural teeth.

Remember, your dentist is always available should you have any questions or suffer any discomfort.

5 Major mistakes people make when whitening their own teeth

It may be tempting to try to whiten your teeth on your own, without dentist supervision, using an over the counter product.

There are several reasons why this is contra-indicated. These include: badly fitting trays which bruise your mouth and chemical damage caused by using the incorrect amount of whitening gel.
