Teeth whitening Sheffield for a beautiful, white smile

If you are looking to make a great first impression then you need to speak to us at Dee Kay Dental and find out about teeth whitening Sheffield. Your smile is one of the first things people notice about you. Your smile can bring positivity into all aspects of your life, or it can affect your health and wellbeing. If you are unhappy with the appearance of your smile, this can affect your self-confidence and your self-esteem. In some cases, it may stop you from smiling all together. Here at Dee Kay Dental we can help you with that.

Teeth staining

Beautiful, white teeth help transform the appearance of your smile, even if you are affected by other aesthetic issues, for example crooked or wonky teeth. Teeth whitening Sheffield is simple, quick and effective. It helps remove stains that are on the surface of your teeth. These are known as extrinsic stains. Extrinsic stains build up as a result of many different reasons. Extrinsic stains occur because of poor dental hygiene; if you are not brushing your teeth properly or if plaque and tartar build up on your teeth they will become yellow. They can occur as a result of lifestyle choices, such as smoking and excessive drinking. Pigments in your food called chromogens, which are brightly coloured, can also cause stains to build up on the surface of your teeth. If you brush your teeth at least twice a day, floss at least once and visit the dentist on a regular basis, then stains should not be able to build up on your teeth. However if you neglect your dental hygiene and if you avoid the dentist then stain molecules will build up on the surface of your teeth and eventually they won’t go away even after brushing. If this is the case then teeth whitening Sheffield is the solution for you.

Teeth whitening

Teeth whitening can be carried out at our dental practice or you can choose to try it yourself in the comfort of your own home. Both the treatments are just as effective; they simply take a different length of time. At the practice we can whiten your teeth in 60 to 90 minutes. Most people only need one session. If you choose to whiten your teeth at home, then this can take two or three weeks, but you will still achieve excellent results. Our dentist will be able to help you decide which is the best option for you.

Teeth whitening works by applying a bleaching agent to your teeth. At the dental practice this will be hydrogen peroxide and at home this will be carbamide peroxide. They both work in the same way, they break down stain molecules into smaller molecules that are easily removed from your teeth. This helps to reveal the white enamel of your teeth. Speak to us at Dee Kay Dental today. We will examine your teeth and gums, making sure that teeth whitening is suitable for you and very soon you will have a beautiful, white smile that you can show off to the world.
