Did you know...

having sparkling teeth might seem like a 21st-century phenomenon. In reality, the art of teeth-whitening is a technique that has been around in some form for centuries. The history of teeth-whitening, or cleaning teeth, can be traced back to ancient times. In 3000 B.C., people didn't brush teeth with a brush, but they did use something called chew sticks. These were small twigs that a person chewed, which scraped off the particles on the teeth.

There are 2 most commonly used teeth whitening systems:

  1. Boutique Whitening
  2. Enlighten - Evolution Whitening System

2. Enlighten - Evolution Whitening System

This method is done by using tailor made whitening trays to fit the dimensions of your teeth. We would need you first to visit our practice to take impressions of your teeth. Then our technicians will construct a study model of your teeth. From this they will make your whitening trays.On your second visit one of our dentists will show you how to place our special whitening agent on the trays. This tooth whitening treatment last usually 2 weeks.

Enlighten Evolution Whitening System Many of us have stains on the teeth due to our habits and lifestyle. Certain food and drinks are most likely to cause stains like tea coffe and red wine as well as smoking.

Enlighten is the only whitening system in the world that guarantees to get your teeth at least to B1 vita shade. The Enlighten Whitening Gel has almost eliminated any post-whitening sensitivity. We have tested most of the whitening products availableon the market today and the results that Enlighten can achieve are second to none.

We can give you many professional in house whitening treatments but can also offer you the ability to do this yourself in the comfort of your own home. Aesthetika Dental Studio is pleased to be able to offer you the chance to whiten your teeth in order to give you the confident, dazzling smile that you deserve.

In order to whiten we first advise you on how much of our special whitening solution should be put into the pockets before you put the tray over your teeth. The amount is calculated precisely to ensure that the solution is displaced to perfectly cover your teeth and not touch or damage your gums.

The innovation behind Enlighten whitening allows the tooth surface to become more porous, which provides oxygen to break down stains on the surface of the teeth. Enlighten whitening is a combination treatment where both at-home whitening and in-house whitening are used. Custom made trays will be used at home for a fortnight followed by a final treatment in the dental chair.

Frequently Asked Questions

Am I a candidate for Teeth Whitening?

You may be a candidate for professional teeth whitening if you are experiencing discoloration, but otherwise have healthy teeth and healthy gums. Schedule a consultation with us to find out if tooth whitening could be right for you. Some patients, such as those who are pregnant or sensitive to whitening agents, may not be candidates for professional whitening.

What should I expect when I get my Teeth Whitened?

Teeth whitening consists of a thorough cleaning and polishing of the teeth, with all debris carefully removed. We will then protect your gums before applying a whitening agent to the surface of your teeth. The product will be activated and left on the teeth for several minutes before being washed off with water. Your results will vary according to the natural shade of your teeth and degree of discoloration, but it is normal for patients to experience a lightening of several shades in a single visit.

What type of post-treatment care is required after having my Teeth Whitened?

It is normal to experience some tooth sensitivity following a professional whitening treatment. You may be instructed to avoid consuming highly pigmented beverages for at least 24 hours to prevent the teeth from becoming stained again. Examples include tea, coffee and wine. Depending on your results and long-term teeth whitening goals, you may also be sent home from your procedure with an at-home whitening kit for later use.

Even though I have said I Loved it, I dont actually like visiting the dentist at all, however George is extremely kind and makes you feel very at ease. All the team are very welcoming, and all the work I have had done there has been almost pain free! I would highly recommend Aesthetika if you are looking for a dentist in Kingston Upon Thames.
