Teeth whitening is a safe, simple and an affordable way to remove the dark colours from your teeth and to light up your face with a whiter, brighter smile. The degree of whiteness achieved will vary from patient to patient and depends also on the type of bleaching used during the teeth whitening process.

WHAT ARE THE CAUSES FOR TEETH BECOMING DARKER?

There are many causes for teeth becoming darker. Some of the common reasons are:

  • Teeth get stained by the everyday food and drink we consume; tea, coffee, red wine and many deeply coloured vegetables cause stains on the teeth.
  • Smoking will also discolour teeth; the naturally bright, light shades of enamel turn yellow and become darkened due to the deposits of tar and nicotine.
  • As we age and our tooth enamel wears thinner, the natural yellow colour of the dentine under the tooth enamel starts to show through, giving that dull, dark look to your teeth.
  • Biological changes in the nerve house of a tooth results in loss of its vitality. These changes can be the result of decay or trauma and they can give your teeth that dark look.

Even with a perfect oral hygiene routine it may not be possible to remove these stains and colours, as the stain particles penetrate into the inner structure of the tooth and can be removed only by a proper teeth whitening process.

WILL TEETH WHITENING WORK FOR EVERYONE?

Teeth whitening procedure may not work for everyone. It will not be suitable if you have fitted crowns or have large fillings in your front teeth.

WHY TEETH WHITENING IS THE FIRST SOLUTION FOR DARKENED TEETH?

After preparing the teeth with a hygiene treatment, teeth whitening is the first step for having a beautiful smile and nicer teeth. You have several options for teeth whitening.

Home Whitening, simplest, effective and usually the cheapest option.
With home whitening, teeth whitening can be done at your convenient time and at your leisure. Home whitening is one of the easiest, cheapest and most effective teeth whitening systems that can produce good result. This is how it works. A whitening gel is placed in a tray, custom-made to fit your teeth, which you can wear while sleeping or for short periods during the day. Results are normally seen over a two-week period.

Advantages: : You exercise more control over the procedure, you can monitor the progress, and you can stop it at any time you wish. Results from this teeth whitening method tend to last longer as it is produced slower than the chair side whitening systems at the clinic.

Disadvantage: None really! You just need to be patient with this process as it needs time to give you the desirable result.

rating star icon LondonAs always the best treatment; on this occasion a visit to hygienist followed by dental check up. I have been going to Dr. Clarke since 1977 as he takes the greatest care of his dental patients. The work he has done has always been of the highest standard possible and he always offers intelligent solutions. Since moving to Wales I still return to Bayswater for my dental treatment. I did have to have emergency treatment in Wales and the dentist was highly respectful of the work done by Dr Clarke. In fact I think he was in awe!
Can't speak highly enough!

Constantly letting me know exactly what was going on and checking that I couldn’t feel anything. Would recommend everybody to use this dentist practice!

ZOOM Teeth Whitening.
Zoom Whitening is a light activated chair side teeth whitening process done at the clinic that can whiten teeth by up to several shades. It brightens your teeth dramatically to their new natural shade in a matter of 1-2 hours. This is how it works. Your lips and gums are covered for protection and a gel is applied to your teeth. A special light is positioned over your teeth to activate the gel, which gently penetrates your teeth, breaking up stains and discolouration. You get whiter, brighter teeth in less than an hour.

Watch a presentation of ZOOM! on the website here.

Advantages:This teeth whitening process is real quick and is completed in a single visit. You can opt for this process when a social event is coming up and you need to give your teeth a quick makeover.

Disadvantage:The result can fade away quicker than Home Whitening system.

Combination of Home and Zoom teeth whitening systems.
This process may be referred to as the ultimate form of teeth whitening as it combines the Zoom Whitening and Home Whitening systems together. You stand to benefit from the advantages of both systems and reduce the disadvantages of each system. It tends to produce the best results in the shortest possible time. It can be done in any order. You can start with Zoom and then follow it up by a few nights of Home Whitening. Or you can do Home Whitening first and then follow up with Zoom.The cost is slightly more but much less than one would think. It costs just a little more than what you pay for Zoom Whitening process, but for that little extra amount you gain the benefits of two whitening systems. Please see our fee page for the cost of each of the teeth whitening options.

rating star icon LondonGreat customer service and well-experienced dental surgeons. I was able to book a Saturday appointment after feeling a large bump on my gum on Monday. There was a longer-than usual wait time the day of the appointment and the receptionist was very accommodating and agreed to call me once the doctor was done. I live very close so went home for 15 minutes, hung my laundry, and got the call to come back.

It turned out I needed a tooth extraction as my last wisdom tooth was starting to break through. The dentist assured me he was a specialist in tooth extractions, and he is! Even the needle full of numbing agent was so fast I could barely feel it. The entire process, from me getting into the chair to them finishing the procedure (including taking x-rays) only took 45 minutes—the epitome of quick and painless at the dentist! They were also very accommodating and provided me OTC anti-inflammatory pills to save me a trip to Boots. I required no antibiotics, healed well, and my stitches fell out on schedule after 10 days. Highly recommend Bayswater Dental. :)

rating star icon LondonOwing to an upbringing in Scotland many years ago (pre Fluoride) and years of travelling as well as an injury to my jaw from a climbing accident, I have had to see well over 20 dentists in the course of my life. I have experience of dentists in several countries and work has included implants as well as other quite complex work. When I visited Dr Vahid at Bayswater, he drew up a comprehensive plan, which included some cosmetic work as I wanted to look my best for my marriage a few months ago. Not only did he explain every stage of the plan but he listened carefully to what I wanted or thought I wanted and adapted accordingly. His cosmetic work was superb and the other work that he did on dentistry that was failing was the best I have ever experienced. He has an engineering background as well as being a very experienced dentist; moreover, he explains extremely well and clearly works to the highest standard. The support staff are also very welcoming and helpful. I would recommend Dr Vahid as highly as possible.
