To have better-looking teeth is not at all a superficial aspiration.
It has been widely acknowledged that when people are happy with how their teeth look it can have a powerful, positive effect on their self-confidence in both work and social situations.
Pearl offers a wide range of aesthetic treatments. Our staff or the professionals we can refer you to are highly trained and experienced in delivering each.
Huge advances have recently been made in bleaching techniques. We use the most effective methods to achieve stunning results.
Teeth Whitening is a fantastic way to improve your smile and is quick, easy and inexpensive.
A great smile never goes out of fashion and we offer the best options at competitive prices. During one full treatment under the laser light your teeth will whiten to an average 10 shades lighter. It is painless and safe and a great way to get a sparkling smile.
Over time our teeth naturally change colour, and this process is intensified by the consumption of staining food and drinks including coffee, tea, wine and bad habits such as smoking. Since 2013 when the following EU directive was passed, it is only actually legal to receive teeth whitening under the supervision of a dentist.
‘A new European Council Directive bans the use and sale of tooth whitening products which contain over 6% hydrogen peroxide – the chemical used in tooth whitening. Products containing more than 0.1% and up to 6% can only be administered in the first instance by a dentist, and thereafter on the prescription of a dentist. Tooth whitening is also restricted to those over 18 years of age. Any course of tooth whitening has to be preceded by a full clinical examination to ensure the suitability of the case, in particular the absence of any oral pathology.’
Using our EU approved teeth whitening kits we would expect your teeth to whiten by between 3 – 5 shades in comparison to their existing colour. One of the biggest benefits of the take-home system is that you can ‘top-up’ whenever you feel its necessary, or if your teeth start to stain again. Our patients generally experience little to no sensitivity when using these products, and our patient results show that there are no detrimental effects or long term damage to the teeth.
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.
