Many people think that treatment with a Harley Street cosmetic dentist is going to involve a major mouth overhaul, requiring many hours in the dentist’s chair and many pounds out of the bank account.
But here at Harley Street Dental Clinic, we believe that such a treatment with the cosmetic dentist does not have to be a huge endeavour. Even just a very small change can make a huge difference to the impact of your smile, and that can have wonderful knock-on effects for your self-esteem and even your health.
Procedures available from our cosmetic dentists, which do not have to cost the earth, can be as simple as teeth whitening procedures. As we grow older, our teeth can become stained and discoloured by tea, coffee, smoking, certain foods and even some medications.
At Harley Street, cosmetic dentists offer two kinds of teeth whitening. Firstly, we offer what we call Power Whitening. This is a way of whitening teeth that takes only an hour or so. The process takes place at the dentist’s clinic rather than at home. White you relax in the dentist’s chair, our Harley Street cosmetic dentist places a barrier of your gum and lips to protect them. The dentist then covers your teeth with a special gel. The whitening process is activated when the Harley Street cosmetic dentist switches on a special lamp. The whitening process takes about one hour to lighten your teeth by a few shades.
If you prefer, we can also assist you in whitening your teeth at home. Firstly, we take impressions of your upper and lower jaws so that we can make special trays tailored to your own, unique mouth. Then, for the next two weeks or so, you wear the tray for a few hours, once you have filled it with whitening gel.
Some people use a combination of both options, and the cosmetic dentist in Harley Street can help guide to the right option for you when you come in for a consultation. Seeing the Harley Street cosmetic dentist will help you understand what kind of results you can expect, based on the nature of the staining on your teeth, and your initial natural tooth colour.
