An Affordable Whiter Smile in Purley!

Having a great smile does not have to cost the Earth.

Cosmetic dentistry is sometimes associated with expensive treatments in the eyes of many. Whilst it is true that some procedures, such as dental implants, which require, skill, precision and expensive materials, can mean that budgets need to be considered, this is not true for all cosmetic dental treatments.

At our Purley dental practice, we like to offer our patients a wide range of cosmetic procedures from which to chose.

Whilst this choice does include dental implants, an excellent solution for missing teeth it should be said, it also offers affordable cosmetic procedures, and one in particular which is highly popular with patients of the Confidental Clinic.

Teeth whitening

When we are young, we probably barely notice the appearance of our teeth, unless of course they are uneven and need the use of orthodontics to straighten them out.

As we get older though, most of us notice that our teeth are not at the same level of whiteness as they used to be. This can be due to our lifestyle, with smoking and red wine drinking being known to be two of the main discolouration factors for teeth. Generally though, as we get older, the inner part of our tooth darkens, leaving our teeth looking dull and sometimes a little yellow.

It doesn’t have to be this way though and a new whiter smile can be had very simply and affordably by contacting our Purley cosmetic dentist for advice. Whilst severely stained teeth might benefit more from having porcelain veneers fitted, the majority of patients are able to take advantage of our easy to use home teeth whitening kit.

These kits, it should be said, are not the same as the ones that you can buy in chemists. Unlike those, the trays into which the whitening agent is placed are custom made to fit your teeth and gums. Not only does this help to ensure an even and natural looking whitening, but also protects the gums, lips and other soft oral tissues from burns caused by the whitening ingredient.

Easy to use

Once the cosmetic dentist has taken impressions of your teeth and the trays are made, you will be invited back to the Confidental Clinic so that we can check that the trays fit as they should do. You will then be given full advice on how to use them and ask any questions that you have. The beauty of this home whitening kit is that it leaves the patient in control of how exactly they use it. Whilst there are guidelines on how often and for how long the kit should be used, patients are free to stop at any time they choose which allows them to select the appropriate shade of white they require.

For some people, only very white teeth will do, whilst, for others, a small improvement is all that they need to make them feel confident in their smile again.
