Teeth whitening Sheffield for a beautiful, effervescent smile

Are you embarrassed by your yellow teeth? Don’t worry you are not alone. Yellow teeth are very common and in fact are one of the most common cosmetic complaints at the dental practice. Teeth whitening is also one of the most commonly sought after cosmetic dental procedures and here at Dee Kay Dental if you are thinking about improving the appearance of your smile then teeth whitening Sheffield could be the perfect choice for you. We will first carry out an examination of your mouth to make sure that your teeth are healthy and that teeth whitening Sheffield is advantageous and suitable for you.

Intrinsic or extrinsic stains?

Remember that there are two types of teeth stains.

Intrinsic stains cannot be removed by teeth whitening Sheffield. Extrinsic stains can be removed by teeth whitening. Extrinsic stains are those that cover or affect the surface of your teeth. Intrinsic stains are those that affect the internal structure of your teeth but teeth whitening gels cannot penetrate to the enamel so are ineffective for these.

Powerful teeth whitening

To make sure that you can whiten your teeth efficiently we will recommend that you undergo a scale and polish with one of our hygienists to remove excess plaque and tartar from the surface of the teeth. If you have a layer of plaque and tartar on your teeth then you may not be able to achieve the results that you are looking for. To avoid disappointment and to give yourself a head start, book a scale and polish at our practice after you get the go-ahead for teeth whitening Sheffield.

Boutique or Enlighten?

Once your teeth are clean you are ready to begin the process. Here at Dee Kay Dental we are able to offer you two different teeth whitening kits. This depends on your budget and the level of whitening that you are looking for. We are proud to present Boutique teeth whitening and Enlighten teeth whitening. Both treatments can be carried out in the comfort of your own home. Teeth whitening kits consist of custom trays and a teeth whitening gel. The trays will be designed to fit accurately in your mouth for comfort and successful results.

Teeth whitening gels are composed of carbamide peroxide and hydrogen peroxide to break down stain molecules from the surface of your teeth into smaller molecules that can then be removed with good dental hygiene. The treatments work over a course of two weeks and include wearing the trays overnight whilst you sleep. With the Enlighten whitening kit on the 15th the day you are invited to the dental practice to undergo a teeth whitening session by the dentist to complete the treatment. Both treatments allow you to achieve excellent aesthetic results and it is up to you to maintain excellent dental hygiene and keep your teeth clean and white.

A white and carefree smile helps boost your self-confidence and will bring positivity into your life. Speak to us at the surgery today.
