Why go to a pro?

More and more people these days are seeking that sparkling Hollywood smile. This trend has swept through America in recent years and has now reached Britain. People are opting for whiter and whiter teeth, but at what cost?

Church Road Dental and Cosmetics understand teeth. We are experienced dental professionals with specialist skills in teeth whitening and desiccated to serving the people of Cheadle Hulme and Manchester. Whiter teeth can improve confidence and therefore affect various aspects of a person’s life. However, when teeth whitening is not done professionally it can be a risky process, with consequences that are not worth the less that perfect results.

Teeth whitening is a complicated treatment which is why the professional treatment costs more than your average DIY kit. These over the counter treatments are cheap which is why many people go for them, but with the low cost comes many dangers. The most common form of over the counter whitening product is the tray kit. These contain a mouth guard which is not fitted to your individual mouth but rather ‘one size fits all.’ The bleaching gel is applied inside the mouth guard and then placed over the teeth. As the mouth guard is not customised to your mouth, there can be gaps which allow the bleaching solution to leak out into the mouth. This can cause discomfort, blistering of the gums, infections and stomach issues. Even without the risk of the leaking bleach, the damage to teeth can be irreversible. Small cavities can be opened furthur and deep cavities could be giving the bleach direct access to blood vessels, nerves and even bone causing terrible tooth aches and long term problems.

With all these health risks, you would hope that these over the counter products still whitened the teeth. However, in the case of the tray kit, because the mouth piece is not fitted to each individual, the whitening effect can be patchy and uneven. Other products, including whitening strips and mouth rinses, often are either not strong enough, and therefore have no visible effect, or they are too abrasive. Dentin, a hard substance that naturally surrounds the tooth, is a yellow colour; this often shows through the enamel, giving teeth that natural yellow tinge. When whitening products are very abrasive they may remove the stains, but also attack the enamel revealing the yellow dentin beneath and actually make the teeth appear more yellow, rather than white.

Church Road Dental and Cosmetics have been consistently providing the people of Manchester with healthy, whitened teeth. As trained professionals we only provide tested and effective whitening. We offer two types of treatment, home based treatments and in-chair treatments. The home-based treatments differ from the over the counter products as the mould is perfectly fitted to each patient’s teeth. These kits offer a professional treatment that is convenient, safe and produces great results in just a few weeks. The in-chair treatments work slightly differently. This incredible procedure uses a whitening gel combined with a powerful light which whitens teeth so fast it can even be carried out during your lunch hour.
