Tooth whitening treatments
Whiter teeth for Ealing and Hanwell patients
The colour of our teeth is determined by our genes and our age – as we get older our teeth naturally become more yellow. Our lifestyle can also cause teeth to be stained: drinking tea or coffee, smoking or eating strongly coloured food can all contribute to discolouration. At The Ealing Dental Practice we offer the Enlighten Evolution home bleaching programme.
Evolution Teeth Whitening By Enlighten
Teeth whitening is one of the easiest ways to enhance your looks. Whether you want to add a sparkle to your wedding day or perfect your look for business meetings, whitening is simple, affordable and safe.
The British Dental Association recommends that home bleaching treatments are only applied in consultation with your dentist. While kits are available over the counter and via the Internet, these may be unsuitable for you especially if you have gum disease, crowns or the discolouration is a symptom of more serious dental problems.
Your dentist will take an impression of your teeth and make a plastic mould that fits your perfectly. They will then show you how to apply the bleaching gel. You wear the mould overnight and through successive applications your teeth become whiter and whiter.
The Enlighten difference
The difference with Evolution bleaching is the results. Follow your dentist's guidelines and teeth will whiten beyond any other system.
Evolution bleaching works by increasing the tooth's permeability to oxygen which breaks down stain molecules. It is a combination treatment meaning that there is a 2 week home treatment followed by a 1 hour visit at the dentist
