White Teeth for a White Wedding

Summer is a popular time for weddings, so we’re expecting to see plenty of patients flooding through our doors requesting teeth whitening treatment before their big day.

With the average UK wedding costing around £25,000 and the average dress costing around £1,300, couples will understandably want everything to be just right. Many couples will also spend a lot of money on the photographer, so they want to make sure they’re looking their best in their photos.

If you or your partner struggle to smile with confidence, teeth whitening can help. It will enable you to stop worrying about your smile on your wedding day and focus on the bigger picture.

What is teeth whitening?

Teeth whitening is a popular cosmetic dental treatment that helps to remove deep-set stains from your teeth. Our teeth can become dull and discoloured over time, often turning a shade of grey or yellow. To remedy this, we recommend professional teeth whitening treatment.

With teeth whitening treatment, we coat your teeth in a special gel that contains bleaching agents. These penetrate deep into the porous tooth material and break down the bonds between the staining particles. Once broken down, they can be flushed out of the teeth and this leaves the tooth material looking brighter and whiter.

Teeth whitening treatment from Benfleet Dental Centre is inexpensive and painless with highly effective results. Within a short space of time, your teeth will be gleaming white, giving you the confidence to show off your smile at every opportunity on your wedding day.

What are the dangers of teeth whitening?

With so many methods to whiten your teeth available, it can be confusing to know which ones will work and which ones will be a waste of money.

If the wrong materials are used your teeth could be permanently damaged. This is why it is important to only trust your dentist with the teeth whitening process. While teeth whitening may be available through beauty salons, this is actually illegal. Only trained dental professionals are allowed to offer teeth whitening solutions.

If you do choose an illegal method, there is the risk of permanent damage to your teeth, chemical burns to your gums, or spending money on treatments that are completely ineffective.

When you choose professional teeth whitening, you lower your risk of injury and improve the chances that the treatment will actually be effective.

Teeth whitening at home

At Benfleet Dental Centre, we offer home teeth whitening which will give you amazing results. Choosing home treatment is easier and more convenient, as you can fit it in around your schedule.

This will involve taking impressions and making moulds of your teeth to create whitening trays. These are worn at home, normally at night, for a period of 2-3 weeks. This schedule fits in around you.

The more stained your teeth, the longer your teeth will take to get lighter, but we will advise you every step of the way to make sure you achieve the ideal level of teeth whitening for you.

In-office teeth whitening

For faster treatment times, we also offer in-chair teeth whitening that uses a special light to accelerate the whitening process. If you’re in a hurry to get white teeth before your wedding, this can be an ideal solution. At Benfleet Dental Centre we recommend a consultation in order to assess your requirements.

If you want to feel more confident on your wedding day, we recommend thinking about teeth whitening around 1-2 months before your wedding. Most treatment plans will take around 2 weeks to see results, so this time frame will allow you to ensure you achieve the ideal results for your big day.
