Teeth Whitening -here in Dunfermline
Red wine, coffee, age and genetics can make your teeth yellow and discoloured, which can have an ageing effect and spoil your appearance.
Teeth whitening is a simple and inexpensive way to make your teeth whiter. Although not a permanent solution, tooth whitening, if done properly, will usually last between 6 and 12 months. It gives a brighter smile which is still very natural.
We can carry out tooth whitening for suitable patients utilising a more gentle tray whitening approach - with patients wearing custom-made thin gum shield-like trays containing bleaching gels. These trays are worn over a two or three week period for up to 2 hours per session, every other day.This more gentle approach reduces the sensitivity which can affect some patients during the whitening period.
Whitening helps patients achieve a more youthful appearance and in more deeply discoloured teeth, an improvement in colour of 3 shades can be achieved. A couple of top-up sessions are then carried out after 4 to 6 months after the initial course of treatment has been completed.
Sylc® is designed to provide a prophylaxis treatment for dental enamel and to physically occlude dentin tubules -for the management of sensitive teeth. Sylc® is a dry powder (calcium sodium phosphosilicate), composed of elements that occur naturally in the body’s hard tissues (Ca, Na, Si, P, and O). When exposed to an watery environment, Sylc® undergoes a rapid surface reaction, allowing it to physically adhere to exposed dentin and to physically occlude the dentine tubules. Within a short period of time, essentially all of the Sylc® reacts to form hydroxycarbonate apatite (HCA), which is chemically similar to natural tooth mineral.
Sylc is based on the GlaxoSmithKline powder NovaMin® - which is used in a range of Sensodyne toothpastes.
In addition to the clinical benefits of cleaning, desensitising and protection, Sylc offers an easy, pleasant experience for both patients and clinician.
