Teeth Whitening Dublin

With the growing popularity of dental bleaching over the last number of years, and the number of outlets offering teeth whitening services, patients could be forgiven for getting confused about this dental treatment. Teeth whitening is quick, easy and inexpensive and is a great way to improve your smile. At Pearl Dental we offer our patients 3 options, provided by qualified dental professionals:

TeethWhitening

Treatment One: Home Bleaching
This is the most reliable, simple and least sensitive of all the bleaching options, and is still the option of choice for those that want cheap and easily maintained results, and are happy to take the time required.

You will have impressions (moulds) taken of your teeth, and will return a week later for fitting of customised bleaching trays specific to your mouth. You will then be shown how to use the trays with the bleaching agent supplied. You will be required to wear the trays at night-time for the following 2-4 weeks to whiten the teeth effectively. The trays can be used thereafter to top up the whitening effect.

Treatment Two: The Power of Whitening
This is for people who want a deep whitening treatment, to be undertaken in the Salon by a qualified dental professional, and who do not want to use home trays as a follow up. You will have your teeth laser whitened using the latest Zoom tooth whitening equipment and methods for the full recommended treatment time. You will need approximately 90 minutes for the above appointment.

Treatment three: The Complete Whitening Package
This is for people who want an excellent tooth whitening result and are prepared to put in some work to get it. Using a combination of techniques to whiten your teeth has been proven to have the strongest and longest lasting results.

You will then have your teeth laser whitened using the latest Zoom tooth whitening equipment and methods. You will need a total of approximately 1.5 – 2 hours for the above appointment. You will also receive the home bleaching kit for stabilisation and maintenance of the teeth whiteness.

If you would like to learn more about the dental bleaching service we provide please do not hesitate to contact reception on 01 6790625 or email reception@pearltreatments.ie

Those of you who have read through the dental postings on this site will be aware that Pearl Dental Practice, Dublin 2 offers a comprehensive range of dental procedures to a a very demanding standard. What you may be less aware of is the fact that Paul Redbond, the Principal dentist behind the Pearl venture, also practices in a surgery in Newbridge, Co. Kildare, and is able to offer the same dental procedures and standards here as in the main practice in Dublin.

Be it veneers, bleaching, dental implants, aesthetic white fillings, crowns, root canal treatment, smile design or more, the full Pearl service can be found on Charlotte Street, Newbridge, Co. Kildare. Facial aesthetics treatments are now also available, so say goodbye to those lines and wrinkles with a course of dermal fillers, or muscle relaxing injections to smooth the forehead.

Please note that Paul is only available in Newbridge on Wednesday and Thursday each week, and to ensure that you see the correct dentist, you will need to request that your appointment be specifically with Paul Redbond himself, as many of the advanced procedures are not available from the other dentists in the practice, who are not associated with Pearl.

Check this before you start teeth whitening/ bleaching

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.

Hi..my 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 careful..it is obviously not for everyone. He had had a prior consultation and was told he was the perfect candidate i.e.no receeding gums and aged only 22.Apparently his reaction was “one in a million”.

Exclusive standard veneers at Pearl Dental Practice and Beauty Salon, Dublin 2

Here at Pearl Dental Practice and Beauty Salon, we pride ourselves on the standard of our work, and back this up with a 5 year full coverage warranty on all our crowns, veneers, implants, and bridges. However, in some cases, the client is more demanding in terms of the final finish for their smile, and it is for cases such as these that we recommend our exclusive standard laboratory work. The procedure in the surgery is unchanged, as we always work to the highest standards, but the laboratory process, which involves the fabrication of the veneers, crowns etc, can be customised to achieve maximum aesthetics. The work will not last longer, or fit better, as we always aim for the ideal in these respects, but the time spent by the laboratory technician will be considerably longer, and the attention to minor details more intense.

For most people, such minor details are not noticeable, but for some, they are what create the perfect smile, and are therefore worth every cent of the additional cost involved.

Examples of some of our standard veneer cases can be found under the post before-and-after-2-veneers

An example of an exclusive case is shown below, with the first image of the old veneers after the teeth were whitened, and the second image is of the 6 new veneers after fitting. Note the extraordinarily natural appearance of the veneers, which are all but impossible to distinguish from the natural teeth.
