Why you should ask your dentist about teeth whitening in Bournemouth

When we’re young our teeth are a brilliant pearly white, but as we get older things such as our diet, the way we brush, and just general wear and tear start to take a toll on our once stellar smile. The protective enamel starts to wear away and you end up with a discolouration or ‘yellowing’ of the teeth occurring and this can hit your self-confidence levels.


But there are ways to reduce the effects of this by boosting the natural shade of your teeth through a series of sessions of teeth whitening in Bournemouth with our team.

What is tooth whitening?

For those that are unfamiliar with the process of teeth whitening in Bournemouth, we essentially brighten the shade of your teeth through a series of bleaching sessions to reduce discolouration and brighten them up. This treatment does not completely change the colour of teeth, instead it boosts their natural shade to make them look brighter and healthier.

What does it involve?

The process of whitening is relatively straightforward and is non invasive. Normally it would involve using a custom moulded mouthguard combined with a bleaching gel that you would have to wear for a set period of time until the desired results are achieved. 

Or there may be a laser shone on them as part of a system known as ‘power whitening’ whereby a bleaching product is painted onto your teeth and a light is shone to activate the agent, over time this will lighten your teeth. The type of treatment plan chosen will depend on what your dentist decides would be the right choice for you.

At Smile Stories, our talented and friendly team will help you get that bright, confident smile again after a few sessions at our practice.

Can you do it at home?

Depending on the treatment plan chosen for you by your dentist, you may also be able to complete your whitening sessions at home. If this is the case, we will provide you with a whitening kit and a specific set of instructions on how you should use it and how often you should bleach your teeth throughout your treatment plan.

Is it safe?

Teeth bleaching treatments are rigorously controlled so it is safe as long as you go to a registered practice. You must follow all instructions given to you by our dentist if you have a home kit. If you are given a home kit then make sure you use the correct amount of bleaching gel, as any that overspills and touches your gums or mouth may cause irritation or blistering if you’re not careful. If you have any concerns about the whitening process when you come in for your session, then just chat to our team and we will be happy to settle any worries you may have.

Hopefully this has helped clear up a few things about whitening process, if you would like to schedule an appointment to give your smile a little boost then get in touch with our team as soon as you can.
