Teeth Whitening in Merton

Teeth whitening is a procedure that brightens your teeth and removes surface stains. Teeth whitening is a terrific approach to cure yellowed teeth, teeth stained by tobacco use, or tooth stains from excessive drinking of dark beverages such as coffee, tea, or wine. It is safe, economical, and effective.

If your teeth are stained, a smile makeover from The Good Dentist’s Dr. Meinerz may be just what you require. Please find out more about our teeth whitening procedures in Merton right now.

What is the Process of Teeth Whitening?

Because there are diverse teeth whitening solutions on the market — toothpaste, mouthwash, strips, gels, and trays – it can be tough to figure out how they work. However, all of these items are based on the same fundamental principles.

A peroxide like hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide is used as the active ingredient in almost every teeth whitening product. Peroxides are made up of oxygen molecules that react with tooth discoloration when they come into contact with them.

Peroxides bind to discolored molecules and dissolve the chemical “bonds” that keep them together. They successfully “bleach” the teeth by removing the superficial spots from the tooth enamel!

What Can Teeth Whitening Help With?

Most types of tooth discoloration can be treated by teeth whitening, including:

  • Age-related yellowing
  • Tobacco smoking leads to stained teeth.
  • Coffee, tea, wine, berries, and other tannin-rich foods/beverages discolor teeth.
  • Stains and discoloration as a result of poor oral hygiene

External (extrinsic) stains can only be treated with teeth whitening. Teeth with internal staining (intrinsic staining) cannot be whitened.

Teeth Whitening: In-Office vs. At-Home

The Good Dentist offers teeth whitening services both in-office and in the comfort of your own home. Both treatments are equally effective, while in-office whitening produces quicker effects.

A complete teeth cleaning precedes in-office whitening. To ensure that your teeth are ready for the operation, a dental hygienist will remove plaque and bacteria.

Then, to prevent discomfort from the bleaching agents, your gums will be covered with a protective solution. Dr. Meinerz will next apply the whitening substance to the teeth and “activate” the ingredients with a unique lamp.

It’s done! You may require more than one whitening visit, depending on the severity of your discoloration.

If you’d rather whiten your teeth on your own time and in a relaxing environment, at-home whitening is a terrific option. Dr. Meinerz will make custom-molded plastic trays that exactly fit your teeth, and you will receive tubes with high-quality bleaching gels.
Then, when you’re ready, simply follow Dr. Meinerz’s treatment instructions and whiten your teeth. Surface stains will fade in a few weeks, and you’ll have a brighter, whiter grin!
