Teeth Whitening Bournemouth, Dorset
Get a Brighter & Whiter Smile
Welcome to Teeth Whitening Bournemouth, if you're looking to get a brighter, whiter smile in the Dorset area then you've come to the right place!
Stained, Discoloured, Or Dull-Looking TeethIf you are happy with your smile but would like to brighten it up, all you may need is a whitening treatment to get rid of those stains. Whitening is a safe and effective means of returning your teeth (or even just one tooth) to their original dazzle.
How it worksOur teeth whitening procedure has been perfected through many years of experience to ensure you get the whitest teeth possible through a method that is the safest possible. We use a special covering to ensure that your gums are very well protected before one of our dental professionals applies our specially formulated hydrogen peroxide whitening gel. This hydrogen peroxide gel works by breaking down molecular bonds that make up stains on your teeth. We then combine this with Philips Zoom White Speed Whitening LED Accelerator which intensifies the action of the gel and makes the entire process work even faster and more effectively which from just one session can improve whitening results by up to 40%.
What is teeth whitening?Teeth whitening is a bleaching process that lightens discolouration of enamel and dentin.
What causes tooth discolouration?There are many causes. The most common include ageing and consumption of staining substances such as coffee, tea, colas, tobacco, red wine, etc. During tooth formation, consumption of tetracycline, certain antibiotics or excessive fluoride may also cause tooth discolouration.
Who may benefit from tooth whitening?Almost anyone. However, there are some cases where the treatment may not be effective. A dentist will determine viable candidates for the process through oral examination and diagnosis. Teeth whitening is ideal for patients who have healthy, discoloured teeth and would like to have a whiter, brighter smile.
Do many people whiten their teeth?More people than you might imagine. A bright, sparkling smile can make a big difference for everyone. Our teeth whitening makes it easier and faster than ever before.
Is whitening safe?Yes, extensive research and clinical studies indicate that whitening teeth under the supervision of a dentist is safe. In fact, many dentists consider whitening the safest cosmetic dental procedure available. It is not recommended for children under 13 years of age and pregnant or lactating women.
How does teeth whitening work?Our light-activated whitening gel's active ingredient is hydrogen peroxide. As the hydrogen peroxide gel is broken down, oxygen enters the enamel and dentin, bleaching coloured substances while the structure of the tooth is unchanged.

What does a patient experience during the procedure?During the procedure, patients may comfortably watch television or listen to music. Many actually fall asleep. Individuals with a strong gag reflex or anxiety may have difficulty undergoing the entire procedure.
How is exposure to light controlled?The procedure requires that all soft tissue in and around the mouth be protected. The clinician is required to monitor the procedure to insure any exposed skin or tissue is isolated and protected. Protective eye wear is required during the procedure. Light sensitive individuals including those undergoing PUVA (Psoralen+UV Radiation) therapy or other photo-chemotherapy, as well as patients with melanoma, should not undergo the in-office procedure. Also patients taking any light sensitive drugs or substances, whether over-the-counter, prescription or homoeopathic, should consult their primary physician prior to procedure.
How long does the whitening take?The complete procedure takes just over an hour. The procedure begins with a preparation period followed by one hour of bleaching. A five minute fluoride treatment completes the procedure. (A cleaning is recommended prior to the actual whitening session).
Are there any side effects?Sensitivity during the treatment may occur with some patients. The Zoom! lights generates minimal heat which is the usual source for discomfort. On rare occasions, minor tingling sensations are experienced immediately after the procedure but always dissipate.
How long do the results last?By following the post whitening care instructions, your teeth will always be lighter than they were prior to the procedure. The whitening procedure includes a take-home touch-up kit and trays that can be used whenever discolouration is noticed. Most often a touch-up once a year will maintain a whiter smile that sparkles for years.
