Dental Treatment and COVID-19

Dear Patients,

On 25th March 2020 Sara Hurley (Chief Dental Officer England) and Matt Neligan (Director of Primary Care and System transformation) released their latest statement on the rapidly developing COVID-19 pandemic.

We would like to update you on how this will affect our service provision at Dentalcare Group. The guidance is clear that all routine, non-urgent dental care, including orthodontic treatments must be deferred until advised otherwise. We are still here to support you and your dental needs through this unprecedented time.

We want to take this opportunity to reassure all our patients that we take the spread of the COVID-19 in the UK very seriously. The health and safety of our patients, staff and visitors to our dental practice is our main priority.

Here at Dentalcare Group we will be providing all our patients with a remote service during normal working hours. Our dentists will perform telephone triaging for: advice; analgesia; and antimicrobials (if appropriate) . We will not be able to see you at the practice.

If it is not possible to manage your symptoms remotely, you will have to be referred to a Local Urgent Dental Care Centre. Details of these are currently being established in our area and we will update you as soon as we have further information.

We will use our best professional judgement in the triaging process and work collaboratively with our Local Urgent Care system, possibly volunteering our expertise where necessary to help meet the demands imposed on this new emergency service.

Stay safe.

Teeth Whitening

at Dentalcare Langley

A smile makeover with Teeth Whitening

Teeth get discoloured for a variety of reasons including smoking and drinking too much tea, coffee or red wine. Professional teeth whitening will brighten the colour of your teeth and will restore your confidence to smile again.

Hundreds of patients from Langley are using teeth whitening to get an instant smile makeover.

Professional teeth whitening is recommended as your dentist can prescribe the correct amount of chemicals and inspect the health of your teeth before, during and after treatment. Over the counter products can be risky to your teeth and your health.

Teeth whitening in Langley

At Dentalcare Langley we offer two ways to whiten your teeth:

Philips Zoom! Teeth whitening at Dentalcare Langley dental practice

A scientifically tested gel will be applied to your teeth which removes stains by breaking down dentin deposits and the compounds which cause them. A special light is then placed over your teeth which breaks down the gel to your teeth. The entire process usually takes about an hour.

Teeth whitening in your home

Alternatively, we make and fit you with a bespoke whitening tray which you wear for a certain amount of time at home or overnight. We offer two brands for this treatment – Boutique whitening and Pola whitening.

Philips Zoom! teeth whitening

If you’re looking for fast, dramatic results for teeth whitening, then Philips Zoom! in -practice whitening treatment is for you. It is clinically proven to whiten your teeth up to 7 shades in an hour. More patients report less or no sensitivity with this treatment than home teeth whitening kits. This type of whitening is particularly effective for patients who have deep discolouration on their teeth (from red wine, coffee, smoking or medication). As this treatment is performed by the dentist, you can be sure that the treatment is safe, and it can be customised to your needs.

Boutique teeth whitening

You wear your custom-made trays over the top of your teeth which you fill with the prescribed amount of whitening gel. Boutique by Day contains a higher concentration of bleaching gel, so you only need to wear them for 1 or 2 hours as prescribed by your dentist. If you want a fast and convenient solution, then this is for you. Boutique by Night contains carbamide and is a far gentler process. You wear your trays over-night. This is a more gradual approach and is better suited if you want the convenience of not wearing trays during the day or if you have sensitive teeth.

Poladay and Polanight teeth whitening

Just like Boutique whitening, Pola involves you wearing a custom-made tray which contains teeth whitening gel. Poladay uses hydrogen peroxide which is a fast treatment and can be worn for as little as 30 minutes in the day. Polanight uses carbamide peroxide which is a slower acting chemical that provides a gentler whitening treatment whilst you sleep. Both forms of Pola whitening treatments contain fluoride to protect against sensitivity and both are safe and offer the flexibility to whiten your teeth in your own time. With Pola teeth whitening, you get to choose the shade of white for your treatment.

Frequently asked questions about Teeth Whitening

What is “tray whitening”

This is a tooth whitening process that you carry out at home whilst under the supervision of a professional dentist. You add the prescribed gel into your custom-made trays which you wear according to your dentist’s instructions. The gel either contains hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide and because of the concentration, it must be prescribed by a dentist within Europe.

Is teeth whitening a safe procedure?

Yes, as long as your dentist is involved in the process. Teeth and gums can be permanently damaged if they are not treated with care, so it is best not to buy over the counter or products online. Teeth whitening can cause some sensitivity, so it is important to always follow your dentist’s advice and not wear your whitening trays for longer than specified.

Does teeth whitening hurt?

Not normally, but it can feel different for each patient. You may notice some discomfort if you have sensitive teeth and this will ease once you have taken your trays out. Your dentist will assess your teeth before beginning your teeth whitening treatment and will check the condition of your teeth and whether they are sensitive.
