Now we’re over a month into 2023, you might be revisiting your New Year’s resolutions. If transforming your smile was top of the list but you haven’t quite gotten around to it yet, now could be the perfect time to try teeth whitening in Fulham.
Teeth whitening is one of our most popular treatments, and for good reason! It's a straightforward yet extremely effective way to elevate the appearance of your teeth, making them look and feel healthier, and restoring your confidence. Here are five reasons you should consider going ahead with it this year:
1. Restore your confidence
Discolouration is extremely common. It’s no surprise, considering how much our teeth go through every day! Eating, drinking, ageing, medications, smoking, and dental issues like tooth decay can all cause yellow and brown stains to develop on, or even in, your teeth.
The stained appearance of teeth can make you feel insecure, preventing you from making the most of your life. Rather than enjoying time with your friends, laughing at jokes, or speaking to new people, you might feel more inclined to hide your smile away. You may even hesitate to accept opportunities like job interviews.
A bright, white, healthy-looking smile will help you to move through your life with the confidence you deserve. It can improve your interactions with friends, family, and colleagues - especially if you have a people-facing role or one that requires public speaking.
Everyone deserves to feel good about themselves. When you choose to whiten your teeth at our dental practice in Fulham, you’ll give yourself the most important gifts of all: self-confidence, positivity, and motivation!
2. Teeth whitening in Fulham is safe
Many patients are interested in whitening their teeth, but are concerned about the side-effects. Despite what you’ve heard, teeth whitening is completely safe - but only if the treatment is carried out by trained dental professionals like those at our Fulham dental practice.
We advise that you steer clear of over-the-counter whitening kits, as cosmetic treatments should always be overseen by a dental professional. Cheaper self-whitening kits are often ineffective and can cause damage to your teeth, resulting in sensitivity and discomfort.
It’s worth noting that all teeth whitening treatments may cause some sensitivity at first, and this can last until your treatment is complete. You can use a sensitive toothpaste to minimise discomfort until the initial effects wear off.
3. Your results will stand the test of time
Teeth whitening in Fulham is not only one of the least invasive and most straightforward ways to improve your smile, but you can also expect results that are here to stay. The effects can last for around three years, although the lifespan of your treatment depends on your oral health and dietary habits.
If you are partial to tea and coffee, or dark-hued foods like curry and tomato-based sauces, then stains are likely to re-form on your teeth more quickly. Filling your trays with gel and wearing them one night a week every other month can help prolong results.
4. Choose from two whitening methods at our Fulham dental practice
When it comes to transforming your smile, we want to give you as much choice as possible. That’s why we offer two effective whitening treatments to suit a wide range of patients - one involves a short visit to our practice, whilst the other takes place from the comfort of your own home.
Enlighten whitening is our in-surgery choice. It uses a carbamide peroxide bleaching gel that increases the permeability of your teeth. It encourages oxygenation, which breaks down stubborn stain molecules.
If you opt for power whitening alongside your home-based treatment, we will use an LED accelerator to speed up the process; this creates longer-lasting and more impressive results.
Boutique whitening is a professional teeth whitening system that can only be prescribed by a dentist. The system is designed to fit in with your lifestyle, as you can choose from a day formula (which requires 1.5 hours wear time per day) and four overnight gels which will whiten your teeth overnight as you sleep.
5. Our patients are always thrilled with their new smiles!
We could spend all day talking about why we think you should get a teeth whitening in Fulham, but perhaps you’d rather hear from some of our patients who have had this treatment themselves.
We are always thrilled when someone takes the time to leave us a review! Here are a few of our recent favourites:
“I cannot speak highly enough of the service I received from Asha and the team at Smile Fulham. Having had a temporary root canal filling just before Covid and lockdown struck, I was left with a front tooth that had died and become grey. I was nervous about going to a new practice but I was immediately put at ease by the way in which I was looked after with great care and professionalism. Suffice to say after Asha had completed the root canal filling and prescribed some tooth whitening treatment my tooth is back to the same colour as the rest and I no longer feel self conscious when I smile. My sincere thanks to the staff there and I look forward to my next visit with great confidence.” - Joel Vernon
“I am generally very anxious when visiting the dentist but Dr Omer put me at ease and used a digital scanner on my teeth to create whitening trays. I have a terrible gag reflex that has prevented me from getting any kind dental treatment so using the scanner made all the difference to my experience. He was very patient and understanding, I cannot recommend him enough. I’m excited to finish my whitening treatment and come back to get composite bonding! Thank you so much Dr Omer.” - Renas Cem
