This is a successful and simple method of brightening your smile and after one course of whitening most patients’ teeth will lighten by a minimum of 6 shades.
First of all we take impressions of your teeth to make your bespoke home whitening trays and then show you how to place hydrogen peroxide gel inside the trays.
As we use the very latest whitening systems you only have to wear your trays for 60 to 90 minutes each day and will notice the lightening effect on your teeth after only a few days.
Tooth whitening is most effective on mild to moderately discoloured teeth but all shades of teeth will become lighter from the process.We advise an AirFlowTM stain removal treatment before you begin your tooth whitening for optimum results.
First of all don’t panic as there are several ways of filling those gaps.
Solutions to replace a gap due to missing teeth include a partial denture, a dental bridge or a dental implant.
This is a false tooth that is mounted on a plate and sits in your mouth to fill the one or more gaps. They can look extremely natural and are made of rigid acrylic, flexible acrylic or a metal bar framework. A denture is removable and should be kept clean and removed at night. Generally no tooth reduction is required as the denture fits around your natural teeth.
A fixed bridge takes its strength from the teeth next to the gap. These anchor teeth (retainers) are joined to the false tooth (pontic) that sits in the gap. Modern ceramics are now strong enough to construct multi unit fixed bridges without any need for metal and so providing a much more natural appearance than traditional metal bonded to porcelain bridges.
A dental bridge is cemented onto the teeth and is not removable. The anchor teeth usually need reducing in size to allow the placement of the bridge and this can sometimes cause the anchor tooth to devitalize in which case a root treatment is necessary.
A Maryland bridge is a more conservative bridge where a false tooth is fixed in the gap by metal wings that bond to the inside surface of the adjacent teeth. These bridges involve very minimal tooth reduction but can occasionally debond and are only suitable in certain situations.
