Teeth Whitening in York

A smile is a wonderful way to make that first impression, let caring hands at Fresh Dental Smile Clinic reveal a smile you shouldn’t hide.

If you are looking for a cosmetic dentist in York, our friendly team can help create a beautiful smile. A brighter, whiter smile looks great as it radiates confidence and vitality. Unfortunately our teeth are susceptible to becoming discoloured by everyday foods and drinks such as tea, coffee, red wine, and smoking. Other causes can include tetracycline staining from taking certain antibiotics as a child due to frequent illness.

Teeth whitening has great appeal and is a brilliant entry to cosmetic dentistry. It’s a wonderful, simple yet very effective treatment that can roll back the years.

Its important to have an initial assessment with the dentist, we will take this opportunity to closely assess the quality of your teeth for suitability to treatment. We then undertake any pre-conditioning treatment required to get the best bleaching results. We ensure all patients have a deep clean prior to any treatment and also seal up and repair vulnerable areas of teeth before starting to ensure you achieve the very best results.

We have many years of experience in using a wide range of teeth whitening systems and we are always happy to advise you in making the best choice for your individual situation.

As there are different types and degrees of staining, we need to assess the individual’s suitability to whichever system is preferred. Other aspects that we need to consider as part of a detailed assessment is the condition and composition of the existing teeth prior to embarking on the tooth whitening process.

Teeth that are deeply stained cannot be treated with a scale and polish or whitening toothpaste products alone and the only way to get truly white teeth is with tooth whitening (bleaching) treatment or laser tooth whitening. Here at Fresh Dental Smile Clinic we have greatly improved countless smiles by delivering a tailored tooth whitening solution.

We offer three different tooth whitening options to suit all patient requirements and budgets.

Home Teeth Whitening in York

This is an entry level package with basic customized trays. It is ideal for those who would like to enhance the colour of their teeth giving them a refreshed look but are not necessarily looking to achieve outstandingly white results. Home whitening involves wearing custom-made trays containing a gentle whitening gel. We can use gels that work while you sleep at night or during the day.

During the consultation the dentist will discuss the tooth colour shade you would like to achieve and will take an impression of your teeth in order to make a custom-made tooth whitening tray to bleach your teeth. You will be given instructions on how to place the whitening gel in the tooth whitening tray which you will need to wear every night for 2 to 4 weeks after which you will notice your teeth starting to whiten. The dentist will give instructions of which foods/drinks to avoid during this process.

Want white teeth instantly?

Then Zoom could be suitable for you.

This is an in-surgery procedure that is safe, effective and clinically proven to whiten up to eight shades in just one hour. In addition to the surgery treatment you also receive a quick and easy home tray system to further boost the results.

 

Frequently Asked Questions

What is it?

Zoom is a simple process which makes teeth whiter over a certain time period.

What does the process involve and how long will it take?

Our dentists will carry out an initial assessment following which we will take impressions for your whitening trays and schedule you in for your whitening appointment. Once in the surgery we will protect the soft tissue of your mouth and gums. Protective glasses are provided and whitening gel is applied to your teeth. The Zoom LED light is used afterwards.

Is the procedure safe?

Yes. You will receive a thorough assessment to ensure that you are suitable for treatment. The entire procedure will be monitored carefully to ensure that your gums are safe and that you are comfortable while treatment is being carried out.

Is it for everyone?

Yes, for most people. We will carry out an initial assessment. However, Zoom is not suitable for children under 18 years of age, pregnant women or breastfeeding mothers. The dentist will inquire about any medication you are taking to assess your suitability for treatment.

Will there be any side effects?

A few patients may experience some sensitivity both during and after the procedure. On occasions, minor tingling may be experienced immediately after the procedure but this should disappear within the next 24 hours. You will be provided with a free sensitivity relief gel to take home with you.

How effective is it and how long will it last?

We suggest that you back up your Zoom tooth whitening with our home tooth whitening trays as part of your treatment plan. This will help you achieve and maintain your new white smile for much longer.

Enlighten Deep Bleaching

This is the most highly developed whitening system on the market today. This system is so effective that it can also lighten teeth that have even been stained by tetracycline antibiotics. It initially involves taking a mould of your teeth which is then used to construct special patented sealed whitening trays at Enlighten Smiles Laboratory. Approximately 10 days later you will be given your whitening trays and a 14 day supply of deep bleaching Enlighten gel. You wear the trays with the gel overnight for 14 days. As this process takes 2 weeks it is therefore not as instantaneous as zoom, but the results tend to be more dramatic with a greater depth of bleaching giving much whiter results. We are accredited premium providers of this system being able to consistently achieve outstanding results.

Ultimate Whitening Package

For the ultimate white teeth try our whitening package which allows you to take advantage of both systems to give you a dazzling white smile. It involves a dental hygiene visit, stain removal treatment, a one hour Zoom laser whitening session followed by Enlighten deep bleaching system. This system achieves by far the best results we at Fresh Dental Smile Clinic have seen.
