Teeth-whitening treatment with our dentist at Sheen Dental

Teeth whitening is a form of cosmetic dentistry and one of our most popular treatments. There are high patient satisfaction reviews for the services of our dentist Richmond. At Sheen Dental, we offer many other cosmetic dental treatments such as white fillings, gum contouring, porcelain veneers and many other options. The teeth whitening treatment allows you to brighten up your smile.

The common cause of tooth discolouration is the intake of certain food and drink while another lifestyle choice that affects the colour of teeth is smoking. Smoking can eliminate the natural whiteness of the tooth causing it to become stained and darkened.


The teeth whitening procedure we offer is highly successful, and our dental team can eliminate deep stains that are impossible to get rid of with normal toothpaste. This treatment is not invasive and does not require surgery and consists of a simple methodology. Results can vary from patient to patient and are dependent on the process of bleaching and what type of process is selected. If you are interested in exploring the teeth whitening process, please feel free to contact our dentist Richmond.


How does the process work?


The first step will involve our professional dental team assessing whether or not you are a suitable candidate for the procedure. Our dentist Richmond will ensure to check the type of staining on your teeth and its severity. Once this has been examined, a tailored tray will be created to fit the structure of your teeth and the selected bleaching agent will be placed into it, which, when worn, will activate the teeth whitening process.


What are some pros of teeth whitening?


There are numerous benefits to receiving teeth whitening treatment from our professionals at Sheen Dental. All these advantages can be categorised as life benefits, the biggest one being aesthetics. Once your teeth are whitened, you will be left with a brightened smile, which can increase your self-confidence and social interaction.


Another advantage of getting your teeth whitened is that you can have improved oral health and hygiene. When the discolouration and staining are extracted by our dental professionals, your teeth’s barrier becomes stronger. Therefore, there is a lower chance of contracting gum disease or plaque.


Teeth whitening treatment brings in some long term benefits as well. The results are long-lasting as whitening agents are high in availability and can be obtained from over the counter. The longevity of the results can be extended if you maintain a good oral health routine.


Overall, the treatment itself is much safer than bleaching kits for use at home. It is shown that these kits can cause teeth sensitivity and other oral irritations. The teeth whitening process we offer at Sheen Dental is always performed by dental professionals who can adjust the degree of the whitening agent.


One last advantage of whitening your teeth is an occupational one. It has been shown that people with brighter smiles are categorised as successful and have higher chances of recruitment.


With every dental process, there are potential side effects; therefore, it is important to have professional guidance before undergoing a dental process.
