Teeth whitening may be the most popular cosmetic dentistry treatment available today — and perhaps the most cost-effective too. While there are plenty teeth whitening products available at your local drugstore, they cannot offer you the same effective care and attention that you will receive from an experienced dentist.
At Clear Braces Essex, we understand that having yellowed or discoloured teeth can cause you to feel uncomfortable in various social situations. Professional teeth whitening services offered at our practice, can improve your self-confidence and give you a bright and radiant smile. For this reason, we deliver two types of teeth whitening – power whitening with the aid of laser technology (Enlighten and Zoom) performed in less than an hour in the dental chair and home whitening with custom-made bleaching trays at the comfort of your own house.
Advantages of having your teeth whitened at the dentist
A visit to a dentist for a teeth whitening treatment, will not only reveal the cause of the discolouration, but will also provide a lasting solution. Before your dentist starts the treatment, they will examine your teeth and gums thoroughly. This will help them determine the actual of the stains. Teeth discolouration may be caused by consuming beverages like coffee or red wine, it may be inheriting, or may even be an adverse reaction to a drug you are taking. However, sometimes, teeth tend to change colour because of tooth decay. If that’s the case, your Essex dentist will remove the decay before proceeding to teeth whitening.
Another important benefit of professional teeth whitening, is that a well-trained dentist will take proper measurements of your teeth before providing you with a bleaching tray. Unlike the whitening trays found in stores, which usually come as in one size, bleaching trays provided by dentists will fit your teeth and gums perfectly. This is because they have been manufactured based on the dental impressions created from your teeth. A perfectly fitting tray will also help to protect your gums and other parts of your mouth from the bleaching solution.
Last but not least, Professional teeth whitening allows you to select the level of brightness you want to achieve. This way, you can go a few shades lighter or aim for the brightest smile possible.

Are you tired of having yellow, stained teeth, despite your thorough oral hygiene routine? Many people like their teeth just become yellow overnight. While this is not quite possible, there are many reasons why teeth become yellow over time.
At Clear Braces Essex, we understand how beautiful a healthy, white smile can be, and we are able to help our patients whiten their teeth professionally from the comfort of our office or with the aid of custom-made bleaching kits. We provide a number of different tooth bleaching options to help whiten teeth such as power whitening with Enlighten and Zoom technology as well as home whitening.
Contributing factors to discoloured teeth
Teeth ultimately turn yellow as we age, because enamel gradually wears away from chewing and exposure to acids from food and drink. At the same time, some people are genetically inclined to have yellower teeth than others, while coffee and cigarettes tend to leave stains on your teeth over time. Finally, certain medications and tooth grinding can be responsible for yellow and discoloured teeth, since they weaken tooth enamel to the point of cracking and yellowing.
Our teeth whitening services
If you are considering teeth whitening in Essex, it is important to know your options. Our experienced dentists will help you decide which method is ideal for your teeth based on your individual needs and lifestyle. All of our teeth whitening treatments are safe and effective.
Power whitening is a one-hour in-practice dental procedure that will whiten your teeth safely and lastingly. At Clear Braces Essex, you can choose between Enlighten and Zoom laser technology for dramatic results. Your dentist will place a protective barrier over your lips and gums as well as bleaching gel on your teeth. Depending on the type of laser you will choose, your teeth will look as much brighter as you wish in less than an hour.

When you take a look in the mirror, are you completely happy with how your teeth look? You wouldn’t be alone in answering no; almost half of the UK population aren’t happy with their teeth, according to a national survey. The biggest reason by far is discoloured and stained teeth. At Clear Braces Essex we are dedicated to putting a smile back on your face by restoring the natural shine to your teeth with teeth whitening.

Home versus dentist
The two main forms of teeth whitening we offer both provide effective treatment for stained and discoloured teeth. In consultation with one of our friendly dentists, you can decide which choice would work best for you.

A whitening gel will be placed on your teeth and a protective barrier used to shield your gums and lips. A special light activates the gel, triggering it to get to work on your teeth, with results in just one hour.
