Here at Pearl Dental Practice and Beauty Salon we obviously offer tooth bleaching/ whitening as one of our services, and offer different methods of tooth whitening as appropriate for each case.

‘Laser’, Zoom or Britesmile bleaching

Are the dominant buzzwords in the public domain at present, and offer tooth whitening in around 60- 90 minutes.

Tray bleaching

Involves the use of custom fitted trays to apply the bleach to the teeth, with these being worn on a nightly basis for around 2-3 weeks.

Deep bleaching

Is a more complex bleaching system, but is very effective if undertaken correctly, and offers outstanding results. This technique is considerably more expensive than the standard bleaching systems. 

To ensure that your tooth whitening experience is comfortable, effective, and safe:

  • Never allow a non-dental professional to bleach your teeth. This has been researched by the EU, and the most recent directive advised that tooth bleaching/ whitening should ONLY be undertaken by dental professionals to ensure the safety of the procedure. TOOTH BLEACHING CAN BE DANGEROUS IF NOT CARRIED OUT CORRECTLY, AND WITH APPROVED AND RESEARCHED PRODUCTS.
  • Ensure that your dental check-up is up to date, and that your dentist has checked the condition of your gums.
  • Check the teeth in your smile line for old fillings, veneers, crowns and bridges, as these will not change colour with tooth whitening/ bleaching, and the cost to replace these can be far more than the bleaching itself. Consider a full smile design consult if you have several teeth that will require work after whitening, and this will ensure that you are fully aware of ALL the costs before you begin.
  • If you’re planning to go for one of the 1 hour bleaching systems, ensure that CUSTOM MADE TRAYS are included in the cost, as the colour of the teeth after this type of bleaching is NOT stable, and WILL fade back to some degree. The trays allow for ‘topping-up’ of the bleaching process at home which helps stabilise the colour.
  • NEVER try bleaching kits purchased online for ridiculously cheap prices. Some of these have been shown to be acidic formulations, which is bad, bad news for teeth. Only ever use approved bleaching systems.
  • Don’t be fooled by the advertising. ‘Laser’ bleaching works, but it does not give a brighter colour than home tray bleaching; it can be very sensitive (in our experience, and that of many of my colleagues, approximately 75% of you will experience some pain with ‘Laser’ bleaching, with this being temporary, but potentially quite uncomfortable- see quote at end of this post), you need trays afterwards if you want the best colour, and it takes at least 90 minutes to do it properly. Any dentist or clinic telling you differently should be avoided. Deep bleaching is the only technique that may enhance the colour beyond that of standard tray bleaching.
  • Enjoy your new smile! Follow the guidelines above, and tooth bleaching is one of the safest and most effective ways of improving your smile, so there is now no excuse for less than ideal Pearlys!

And to finish, here is a quote from one of the online forums regarding bleaching. Make sure that the dentist you see for your bleaching knows what he/ she is doing, and how to deal with pain if it arises. son had the laser teeth whitening treatment in Dublin city 3 weeks ago and had such a bad reaction (he thought he was going to pass out with the pain) he was sent home in a taxi having had painkillers administered. Be is obviously not for everyone. He had had a prior consultation and was told he was the perfect candidate receeding gums and aged only 22.Apparently his reaction was “one in a million”.

Smile Design at Pearl Dental Practice and Beauty Salon, Dublin 2.

Here at Pearl Dental Practice and Beauty Salon, we are in the process of bringing smile design to a new level, whereby we look at more than just teeth, and assess the face that frames them. With the expertise of our co-located beautician, we can arrange joint consultations that assess the smile, your skin condition, your daily skin care regime, and even your make-up!

With our competitive fees, such as veneers from €400 per tooth (for 6 teeth or more), tooth whitening from €250, implants from €2000 per tooth (for 3 or more), and crowns from €500 (for 4 teeth or more), we can provide a complete smile transformation at a fee that doesn’t involve remortgaging the house!

Using a combination of dental procedures, Dermalogica based skin analysis and treatments, Jane Iredale professional make-up, and if necessary, injectable line and wrinkle treatments such as Restylane Collagen Fillers, and anti-wrinkle injections, we can ensure that we maximise every facet of your smile to leave you glowing with youthful vitality!

Dental procedures can include tooth whitening/ bleaching, veneers, white fillings, crowns and more, and a full mock-up of the smile can be created before any treatment begins, allowing a very accurate assessment of expected outcomes.

If your smile is lacking the ‘WOW’ factor that you crave, call us on 01 679 0625 to arrange an appointment with either the beauty salon, the dental practice, or both, located here in Dublin 2, and we will talk you through your smile design options!

Framing your smile.

If you love your smile, or have invested heavily to achieve the youthful smile you desire, why leave the face that surrounds the smile as the give away that shows your true age? To complement the smiles that we create, Pearl Treatment Centres are in the process of opening a new beauty salon to run alongside the dental suites. A full range of beauty treatments will be offered, from facials, massages, nail care, and waxing, right through to Botox, Collagen Fillers for lines and wrinkles, and even spray tanning. Dermalogica will be the main professional product line that we will carry, and the beauty treatments can be timed to coincide with your dental visits to maximise the efficient use of your time. You will also be able to pay for all of the treatments on one single bill, and our records will keep track of every treatment and product that you have used, both dental and beauty care, such that we will always be able to ensure continuity.

Our discreet city centre location on Nassau Street will ensure optimum convenience and privacy, and we plan to be fully operational in August 2008.

Watch this space for more information, and for special opening offers.

Don’t forget, the dental suites are now well established, and offer an extensive range of dental treatments, including full cosmetic assessment, planning and treatment, tooth whitening, and routine dental care.
