Enlighten Tooth Whitening : Deep Bleaching in Liverpool

Tuesday, December 14th, 2010

How does Enlighten deep bleaching work?

Your dentist first takes an impression of your teeth so that custom-made deep bleaching trays can be produced. Following this, each night for 14 consecutive nights, the trays are to be worn in conjunction with a gentle whitening gel. On day 15, you should visit your dentist for a one-hour deep bleaching treatment to really whiten the teeth. This can result in teeth appearing up to 14-16 shades lighter.

How long do the effects of Enlighten deep bleaching last?

To maintain this effect, the trays should be worn for one night every eight weeks. This technique has been found to be successful, with approximately 95% of all cases achieving shade B1 or even lighter. If used correctly, the results of deep bleaching can be permanent. The treatment’s success is due to the unique design of the bleaching tray, as it allows maximum contact between the whitening gels and the teeth. These gels are specially created to minimise sensitivity while allowing a longer duration of effect.

Does Enlighten deep bleaching cause sensitivity?

As with all teeth-whitening treatments, patients may encounter some sensitivity when using the Enlighten system. However, the treatment combats this temporary effect by providing a desensitising swab, original to the Enlighten system, that can be used at home.

If maintained correctly, there is no reason why you should not benefit from the effects of the system forever, and your dentist will be happy to advise you of all maintenance guidelines so you can continue appreciating the benefits of your treatment.

Porcelain Veneers In Liverpool City Centre

Thursday, November 18th, 2010

What are Porcelain Veneers?

Porcelain Veneers are a widely used cosmetic dental option which can correct some common cosmetic dental complaints, that we hear all the time in Liverpool, such as tooth staining, chips, fractures, or front teeth in need of straightening.  Porcelain Veneers look just like real teeth, without the need for major tooth adjustment.

A veneer gives a similar effect to a false finger nail, by placing a porcelain facing on top of your front teeth.

How much are Porcelain Veneers?

Porcelain Veneers at the Liverpool Dental Spa start from £550 per tooth and up to £1000 per tooth.

Why should I get Porcelain Veneers at the Liverpool Dental Spa?

Marius McGovern was trained by Larry Rosenthal (NY Celebrity cosmetic Dentist to the stars) and Mike Wise (possibly the best dentist in the UK) in the art of smile design. Dr McGovern is also the only instructor and mentor for the California Centre for Advanced Dental Studies (CCADs) in the North West, and will be running regular study clubs to teach cosmetic dentists in the North West the art of smile design from January 2011 . We are committed to bringing the Hollywood smile to the people of Liverpool, Wirral, Chester and the North West.

How long will my Porcelain Veneers last?

Porcelain veneers will typically last between five and ten years. The bottom line is that your dental veneers will eventually need to be replaced, but to make your veneers last longer, follow a good oral hygiene program and visit your dentist for check-ups on a regular basis.
