Bespoke teeth whitening in Doncaster

At Churchview Dental Practice, we offer the White Dental Beauty whitening system, which offers lots of flexibility in terms of prescription strength and treatment times. We’ll take your dental impressions and send them off to a dental lab, where bespoke whitening trays will be made to fit your teeth exactly.

After your treatment has completed, you can keep your custom trays for future top-up treatments as and when required.

FAQs

Is teeth whitening suitable for everyone?

Almost. Teeth whitening can only be carried out on patients over 18. There are a few patients for whom whitening may not be advisable, which is why it’s imperative that you only have your teeth whitened by a qualified dental professional.

Why get my teeth whitened at the dentist?

Whitening via a registered dentist is your only option if you want your whitening to be legal, safe and deliver the results you want. Unlike over-the-counter or online products, professional whitening means the dentist can prescribe the highest-strength bleaching agent for you, yet adjust it if it causes any problems. This means you’ll get the best possible results with the least discomfort.

How do I get started with teeth whitening?

If you’re interested in whitening your teeth, you will first need to attend a consultation at Churchview Dental Practice. Your dentist will carry out a full examination before confirming you’re a good candidate for whitening. If whitening is the right treatment for you, your dentist will take your dental impressions, which will be sent to a lab where your custom-fit bleaching trays will be manufactured. Unlike generic bleaching trays, lab-made trays exactly fit the contours of your gum line, protecting your gums and targeting your teeth more accurately.

How long does teeth whitening last?

Whitening is like setting back the clock on the colour of your teeth – so they will start to darken again with age and to collect stains again, just as they would if you’d never had them whitened. The key to keeping your teeth white as long as possible, whether you have them whitened or not, is avoiding the foods and drinks that stain teeth and maintaining your dental hygiene routine. You can also use your bespoke whitening trays for top-up treatments that you can get from your dentist.

Invisalign works fast, too – think months not years – so you can look forward to a straight smile and renewed confidence in no time at all!

FAQs

Why choose Invisalign?

Because it’s almost invisible, the Invisalign system is ideal for anyone with a lifestyle that wouldn’t suit traditional metal braces. They’re also removable for eating or cleaning your teeth – and you can even go brace-free for special events.

Who is suitable for Invisalign?

Invisalign is a cosmetic treatment designed for the front ‘smiling’ teeth – so if there are deeper problems concerning bite and function, your dentist may recommend an alternative treatment.

What does the Invisalign treatment involve?

If your dentist agrees that you’re suitable for Invisalign, you’ll begin with a consultation during which you’ll be able to see a 3D time-lapse image of your teeth before, during and after treatment. You’ll need to sit for dental impressions, which will be sent to a lab so that your bespoke Invisalign retainers can be fabricated. Then you simply wear the retainers for the prescribed amount of time, returning to change them every few weeks until your treatment is complete.

How quickly can I expect results?

This is dependent on your individual case, but typical treatment times are around nine months. You’ll need to have a permanent retainer fitted behind your teeth after treatment to maintain the results.

VENEERS

Transform your smile with bespoke porcelain veneers in Doncaster

If your front teeth are crooked, misaligned, chipped, gappy or permanently discoloured, porcelain veneers offer the solution to all these problems and more! Veneers are the go-to treatment for the perfectly straight white smiles you see on celebrities and film stars – and luckily for patients in Doncaster, porcelain veneers are a lot more accessible than they used to be. If you’re interested in getting veneers in Doncaster, come to Churchview Dental Practice for an initial consultation and we’ll start your smile makeover together.

The porcelain veneer procedure usually requires two or more sessions with your dentist. Firstly, the tooth is prepped: this involves removing a thin layer of enamel, under a local anaesthetic if required, and taking a dental impression, which will be used to fabricate your veneers – a process that usually takes a couple of weeks. When your veneers are ready, they will be bonded to your teeth and cured using a special light-sensitive resin.

FAQs

Are veneers right for me?

If you have healthy gums and teeth, the chances are veneers will be a quick and simple solution for you. Patients with tooth decay, gum disease and root canal infections will need to have these issues treated prior to considering veneers, and it may be that your dentist recommends alternative treatments in these cases.

How do veneers work?

Because veneers sit over the top of your teeth, the dentist will need to file away a layer of enamel proportionate to the thickness of the veneers. This is usually carried out under a local anaesthetic. When your bespoke veneers are ready, the dentist will bond them in place using a special curing light, and finish by fine-tuning their look and shape manually.

Do veneers hurt?

No! Sometimes we might use a local anaesthetic, but it’s not always necessary and applying veneers generally involves minimal discomfort. Your cosmetic dentist will discuss your treatment in depth so you know exactly what to expect.

How long do veneers last?

With proper care, your porcelain veneers can last up to 15 years.

Do veneers stain?

Veneers are less prone to staining than natural teeth, because porcelain is not as porous – but you will need to follow a good oral hygiene routine to maintain your beautiful white smile.

Can I get veneers if I grind my teeth?

Your dentist will take this into consideration before recommending veneers. In many cases, wearing a night guard mitigates against veneers being damaged by teeth grinding.
