How Do People Get Their Teeth So White

Do you wish you had a whiter smile? Are your teeth dull or yellowed? Is staining affecting your confidence? You might benefit from one of our professional cosmetic dental treatments offered here in Derby – teeth whitening.


Whitening treatment is the secret behind a brighter, more youthful and more attractive smile. Teeth whitening can help lift your shade and leave your teeth sparkling once again. And you can even look younger and healthier when you have a whiter smile.


Today, our expert dentists in Derby will outline what’s involved with teeth whitening and help you make an informed choice about treatment. You can even book a consultation with us to discover whether it’s right for you, and find out about our other cosmetic dental treatments.

Why have teeth whitening?


This treatment is a fantastic way to revitalise and refresh your smile. The effect can be so powerful and transformative, that we often recommend it as the sparkling finish for people having other treatments at our dental practice, such as Invisalign.


How long does teeth whitening last?


It depends on factors like your diet and lifestyle, as well as your dental health. Because if you brush and floss correctly and have regular dental check-ups, your mouth will be in great shape. Whereas those who smoke, drink caffeinated drinks and eat sugary foods might find they’re more susceptible to staining. Having the right care and lifestyle can help your results last longer, but bear in mind that while results will fade with time, they can’t be reversed.


Does teeth whitening hurt?


No, most people don’t experience any pain or discomfort. But, if your teeth are sensitive, you might want to discuss this with your dentist to prevent any unwanted tingling sensations.


What does teeth whitening involve?


Either in-practice whitening with a powerful laser, or using a special gel at home. Sometimes, a combination of the two can be offered, and in most cases, the final stage of treatment takes place in the dental chair. At our Derby dental practice, we create custom-made mouth trays that can be used in the comfort of your own home.


How can I prevent discolouration of my smile?

Just follow these simple steps:


  • Brush and floss twice a day, for two minutes each time
  • Visit your dentist regularly for check-ups and scale and polish treatment
  • Avoid smoking, sugary foods and other staining foods and drinks
