Teeth Whitening is one of the simplest, most cost-effective, and long-lasting ways of giving your smile and confidence a lift. Bright, natural-looking smiles boost morale because when we look good, we often feel good too! There’s a whole range of reasons as to why our teeth might lose their sparkle, some of the most common being smoking; drinking tea, coffee or red wine; and consuming certain foods, such as curry or tomato-based sauce dishes. The ageing process can also contribute to darker, duller teeth. The effects will vary between individuals – unfortunately, some people’s teeth are more prone to staining than others. We can also treat blotchy teeth using a clear resin, which is soaked into the tooth and set.Book Appointment
Choosing Teeth Whitening treatment with Crescent Lodge Dental Practice can help rid your teeth of stains, and give you a brighter, whiter smile. The procedure is carried out by our dental practitioners at our practice in Clapham, however, in order to ensure that your teeth are as clean as can be, we highly recommend an appointment with your dental hygienist beforehand. This will mean that the base of your teeth is clean before whitening, which will ensure the very best results. Our Teeth Whitening treatment is the least invasive of all cosmetic treatments we offer.
“Finally I have teeth I am happy to smile with thanks to Jonny and the rest of the lovely team at Crescent Lodge.”
We offer two types of Tooth Whitening treatment from our practice in London. The first is our in-surgery treatment, ‘Zoom!’. This treatment involves having impressions of your teeth taken, before you return a couple of weeks later for treatment. This second appointment lasts around one and a half to two hours, but is fairly relaxed and easygoing. Feel free to listen to the radio or bring along some of your own music!
For those looking for an even more convenient option, we also provide an effective home teeth-whitening kit, which allows you to whiten your teeth from the comfort of your very own home. You will be required to join us at an initial appointment so impressions can be made of your teeth, before returning 1-2 weeks later to collect your tailor-made whitening tray and gels. At this point, we’ll give you a thorough explanation so you can continue to carry out the treatment at home.
Always friendly and efficient – very professional in every way.
The results of teeth whitening can last for up to two years. However, once you possess your very own whitening trays, you will be able to re-whiten your teeth for many years to come, simply by purchasing additional whitening gel. As with our in-house treatment, ‘Zoom!’ is also our choice of brand for our home teeth whitening kit. A highly regarded and trusted brand, Zoom! is widely renowned throughout the dental industry.
Yes, teeth whitening is one of the safest cosmetic treatments available. Zoom! teeth whitening gel even contains ingredients that help maintain the health of your enamel throughout the whitening process.
Your teeth can fall prone to two types of staining: that which occurs on a surface level, and that which occurs beneath your enamel. While over-the-counter treatments such as whitening toothpastes can tackle surface-level stains, more advanced treatment is required to combat deeper stains. Zoom! contains ingredients that penetrate the enamel and react with the molecules in your teeth that cause discolouration, breaking them apart.
Unfortunately, teeth whitening will not affect dental restorations. If the contrast in colour is too noticeable, you may need to replace your crown or veneer to ensure it matches your newly-coloured teeth.
Results can last for up to two years, but will be prolonged by regular visits to the dental hygienist and the maintenance of a good oral healthcare regime. Avoid habits such as smoking and drinking excessive amounts of red wine or tea at these can discolour your teeth.
