A Brighter Smile For The New Year In Tunbridge Wells

Make a new start with a beautiful smile in 2018.

With Christmas and New Year celebrations now a thing of the past, many of us will be looking at changes that we want to make to our lives in 2018.

Hopefully, smokers will have decided to make an effort to stop, and there will no doubt be improvement to other health areas on the list too.

At The Calverley Dental Practice, we usually see a rise in the number of patients from the Tunbridge Wells area who want to improve the way that their teeth look. Whilst this includes those seeking to straighten teeth, or even to replace missing teeth, probably the most popular are those who simply want their teeth to be whiter than they currently are.

Custom home teeth whitening

For anyone wishing to achieve a whiter smile, we offer a custom home whitening system that can whiten your teeth by up to eight shades. Although there are home whitening kits available from chemists etc, these are not recommended. Whilst they may offer some improvement, there are two reasons where you should exercise caution. The strength of the bleaching agent allowed in these kits is much lower than those supplied by dentists. This is for health and safety reasons, but will also produce inferior results.

Secondly, the trays used in these kits are one size fits all. This means that they may not fit as securely to your teeth and there is a risk of the bleaching agent leaking and possibly causing irritation of the soft tissues of your mouth.

The kits that are supplied by The Calverley Dental Practice include trays that are made from impressions of each individual patient’s teeth. This means that not only is any risk of irritation minimised, but also that they will feel more comfortable. As the trays are worn for a few hours a day for a couple of weeks or so, this can make a big difference to the patient’s experience.

Results and side effects

We will discuss and arrange a treatment plan, customised to your needs. Some patients require a shade of whiteness that is as bright as they can possibly be. Others prefer a relatively minor improvement. Whatever your aims, our Tunbridge Wells cosmetic dentists are here to help you to achieve them.

Once your treatment is complete, we are sure that you will be delighted by the new appearance of your teeth. Generally, there are no significant side effects but a few patients do experience a temporary increase in the sensitivity of their teeth. However, this should soon subside and return to normal.
