Summer Ready Teeth – Teeth Whitening Offer

Teeth whitening from £177 at Shifnal Dental Care from the 5th of June to the 4th September!

As the summer is fast approaching, many of us will be thinking about how we’ll look in our holiday pictures. Who doesn’t want shining white teeth in their holiday snaps? As well as preparing ourselves by hitting the gym and eating salads. If this sounds like you, why not take advantage of Shifnal Dental Care’s amazing teeth whitening offers to get the perfect pearly whites?

Many people are afraid to smile and show off their teeth if they’re yellow or discoloured. Adults smile between 20 and 40 times a day – compared to children who smile 400 times a day – but if you’re self-conscious about your smile you’re likely to always be conscious of smiling with your lips closed. Discolouration can be caused by a multitude of things, most of them being something we do, or more importantly, don’t do.

Causes Of Discolouration:

  • Poor Dental Hygiene

The most obvious cause for teeth discolouration is poor dental hygiene – a study found one in four adults admitted to not brushing their teeth twice a day. Good oral hygiene is vital for strong and healthy teeth, and regular brushing also helps fight gum disease and tooth decay. In addition, one in three people have never used floss, and less than a quarter of adults floss regularly. Dentists recommend using a fluoride toothpaste and a mouthwash twice a day, as well as flossing or using wire brushes regularly to prevent tooth discolouration.

  • Smoking

Around 9 million adults in the UK smoke tobacco cigarettes. Smoking causes bad breath, gum disease, tooth discolouration and potentially a range of cancers. Although minor in comparison to the more serious consequences of smoking, smokers are often self-conscious of their teeth, which have been stained yellow or even brown after years of smoking.

  • Sugar

The National Diet & Nutrition Survey recorded that the average teenager consumed 74.2g of sugar a day, and adults aged 19-64 consumed 58.8g, compared to the 30g that the NHS recommends. Our favourite sugary treats are just as bad for our teeth as our overall health – sugar rich diets can lead to erosion of the tooth’s enamel as the bacteria in the mouth turns it into acid. Over time this will also cause sensitivity. Teeth can also be discoloured by dark sugary food and drinks, such as fizzy cola.

  • Staining foods and drinks

Coffee and tea are two of the worst drinks for creating stains on our teeth, yet most of us drink multiple cups of one or the other every day. The acidity erodes the enamel and the tannins in coffee discolour the teeth. Typically, any dark coloured food or drinks can result in stains, so in addition to coffee and dark teas, red wine and tomato sauce are particularly bad for staining our teeth.

Treatment Options

At Shifnal Dental Care, we have multiple options for professional teeth whitening. Teeth whitening is a simple procedure of lightening the colour of your teeth. The degree of whiteness achieved will vary from patient to patient and with the type of bleaching process chosen.

Our Office 1 half an hour treatment can brighten teeth by several shades, and results are normally seen after one week of treatment. During the process, your lips and gums are covered 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.

The second option is professional tray whitening, where your custom-made tray is lined with whitening gel – you can wear this whilst asleep or for short periods during the day. With this procedure, results are normally seen over the course of two weeks.

From 5th June to 4th September, all teeth whitening procedures are half price – call 01952 460119 for more details or fill in our contact form online.

For a bright white smile to be proud of, make sure to book your free consultation with Katherine who will help you to find the right treatment for you.
