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.

We would like to thank you for your support and cooperation in the interest of our patient’s health and safety. We will closely monitor this situation and will update all patients accordingly.

Stay safe.
Kind Regards,
Dentalcare Group Team

A smile makeover with Teeth Whitening

Over time, teeth can get stained and discoloured. Often this is caused by the types of food and drink that we consume including tea, coffee, red wine and spicy food. Other reasons for heavy staining can be due to an illness or trauma to your teeth.

White teeth look beautiful and convey a sense of health and happiness to everyone around you. It’s no wonder that teeth whitening has become extremely popular with so many of our patients.

If you want brighter, whiter teeth, we always recommend that you opt for a teeth whitening treatment which is overseen by a professional dentist. Products sold online or over the counter are risky to the health of your teeth and your general health.

Teeth whitening in Trowbridge

At Dentalcare Trowbridge we can whiten your teeth in two ways:

Teeth whitening at the surgery

In just one appointment at our dental surgery, a special gel will be applied to your teeth. This begins to remove the stains by breaking down the dentin deposits and compounds which cause them. A lamp is then placed over your teeth which helps to speed up the process. Your teeth will be whitened in about an hours’ time after which you will leave the surgery with a stunning new smile.

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 when it is most convenient to you. We offer two brands for this treatment:

Boutique teeth whitening

You fill your custom-made trays with a prescribed amount of whitening gel and then wear your trays for the time specified by your dentist.  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 and this works well if you want fast results. Boutique by Night contains carbamide and is a far gentler process. You wear your trays over-night and this more gradual approach is suitable if you have sensitive teeth or if you would prefer not to wear your trays during the day.

Poladay and Polanight teeth whitening

Just like Boutique whitening, Pola teeth whitening involves you wearing a custom-made tray over the top of your teeth which contains a whitening gel. Poladay uses hydrogen peroxide which works quickly 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

How often can you whiten your teeth?

Every person is different but on average, if you have your teeth whitened at the surgery, this should last you for about a year. The take home whitening treatments will last for months and you may want to consider getting another course of treatment after about 6 months.

Does teeth whitening harm the enamel? Is teeth whitening safe?

Teeth whitening does not harm the enamel of the tooth. Teeth whitening is a safe procedure 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 we would always advise you not to buy any over the counter products. You should always follow your dentist’s advice about how long you should wear your trays for and how much gel you should fill them with.

Does teeth whitening hurt?

Not normally, but it can be different for each patient. You may notice some discomfort if you have sensitive teeth but 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.
