Teeth Whitening Ferryhill

Cosmetic treatments have increased in popularity lately. With the advances in our society, dentistry has taken a step towards more aesthetically appealing and cosmetic results.

Tooth whitening offers a quick and effective method to enhance your smile without invasive procedures or wearing your teeth.

At WestMount Dental, we prioritise aesthetic and functional aspects of all our treatments, ensuring a comprehensive approach to your dental care.


What is Tooth Whitening?

Tooth Whitening is a cosmetic dental treatment meant to remove stains and improve teeth colour, providing a brighter and whiter smile. It is often used to counter age discolourations, superficial stains, and food dyeing.

However, although tooth whitening is one of the most frequent treatments, it requires a thoughtful evaluation and protocolised procedure to provide long-lasting and predictable results.

Is Tooth Whitening Right for Me?

Determining if you are an ideal candidate for tooth whitening depends on the type of stains in your teeth. Dental whitening removes superficial stains caused by foods, beverages, smoking, and certain ageing discolouration’s.

Also, it is crucial to maintain healthy teeth and gums to perform the procedure. However, your compatibility with the treatment is determined by your consultation with our dental professionals to assess your suitability and avoid potential complications. You can also call Westmount Teeth Whitening Ferryhill at 01740 651124 for more information or to book your FREE Teeth Whitening consultation where we can discuss all the options with you and give you all information you need before you make a decision on whether Teeth Whitening are the right treatment option for you.

Tooth Whitening Methods

In-Office Whitening

In-office dental whitening is the most common bleaching method. It is a professional procedure performed by our dental team with immediate results within our dental practice.

In-office dental whitening uses a highly concentrated bleaching agent, usually hydrogen peroxide, to disintegrate the pigment inside the surface of your tooth. Moreover, it is an effective and safe whitening alternative.

The procedure includes careful and close monitoring after placing a protective barrier on your soft tissues. Then, we use a curing light to enhance the product’s bleaching properties.

At-Home Whitening

At-home whitening, also known as ambulatory whitening, involves wearing custom-made trays and professional whitening gel to receive convenient and comfortable whitening treatment at home.

Ambulatory whitening offers a practical alternative to in-office treatment while providing highly aesthetic results. Unlike in-office whitening, at-home treatment allows a gradual and consistent whitening over weeks, obtaining outstanding and maintained results.

Patients with an at-home whitening method usually wear their trays with a less concentrated bleaching agent for at least 3 hours daily. But the best way to do teeth whitening is to contact a Teeth Whitening Dentist.

Combined therapy

When your stains are severe or have darker colourations, we could indicate a mixed treatment, combining a few in-office sessions and sustained at-home whitening to enhance the final results.

How Long Will My Teeth Stay Whiter?

The longevity of your results depends on your care and post-treatment measures. Your diet, oral hygiene, and lifestyle habits like smoking can considerably reduce your whitening results.

However, you can prolong your whitening results for many years with regular maintenance, periodic touch-ups, and avoiding staining foods and drinks. Nonetheless, tooth staining is a natural process, and you will require touch-ups or a new whitening treatment to regain your white smile.

Benefits of Tooth Whitening

Enhanced Aesthetic Appeal

Improving your appearance can significantly increase your confidence, social interactions, self-esteem, and overall well-being. A brighter and healthier smile can make you look younger while boosting your attractiveness.

Safe and quick results

Tooth whitening offers excellent results in a relatively short amount of time with a quick and controlled procedure. Although there is misinformation about its side effects, modern whitening is a predictable and secure treatment. If you choose an in-office whitening, you will appreciate the results immediately.

Non-Invasive Procedure

Tooth whitening is a minimally invasive procedure. As a result, it does not require any surgery, wearing, or significant alteration to your teeth. Therefore, tooth whitening is a safe cosmetic alternative to other procedures such as dental veneer or composite bonding.

Customizable Treatment Options

Tooth whitening offers multiple treatment options to match numerous needs and preferences. Whether you choose an in-office treatment or an at-home whitening, you can opt for the method that fits your lifestyle while receiving excellent results.

Risks and Side Effects

Tooth whitening is generally a safe treatment without complications. However, the most common side effects are tooth sensitivity and gum irritation. However, these undesired effects are rare and temporary.

Tooth sensitivity can be addressed with previous dental desensitisation and gum irritation with the appropriate protective measures and procedures.

Most frequent issues typically come from over-the-counter product misuse and procedure mistakes. Therefore, follow your professional recommendations and use your products as indicated.

The Process of Tooth Whitening:

The tooth whitening process begins with a thorough consultation to determine the best approach for your needs.

Your treatment procedure depends on the method you choose. At-home whitening involves a dental impression, tray manufacturing, and applying a whitening gel to your trays at home.

On the other hand, in-office whitening is performed in a single appointment. Here are the usual steps:

  • Teeth surface cleaning
  • Desensitizing gel application
  • Protective barrier placement
  • Agent activation with a special light to enhance the results.

Is tooth whitening suitable for everyone?

Tooth whitening is an effective procedure but it is not suitable for everyone. We will determine if you are a suitable candidate based on the information you provide and a thorough examination of your mouth. If you are not a suitable candidate we are happy to discuss alternative treatments. Tooth whitening does not affect the tooth’s structure as veneers do.

What tooth whitening treatments are available?

There are several tooth whitening treatments available both on the high street and in dental practices all at varying costs. This ranges from tooth whitening toothpastes, home whitening kits and professional bleaching. Before you think of any kind of whitening, it’s really important to find out why your teeth are discoloured so then you can select the treatment that will work best for you!

Is tooth whitening painful?

Tooth whitening shouldn’t cause any pain if it’s done by a professional dentist. Our dentists know how to whiten teeth and will ensure the right level of whitening agent is used to protect the gum.

What are the advantages of tooth whitening?

Tooth whitening treatments can enhance the appearance of your smile, making gorgeous straight smiles even more stunning. Teeth staining and discolouration can greatly age the appearance of the mouth and face, but teeth whitening can reverse this process and provide a younger, brighter smile.
