Teeth whitening is one of our most popular cosmetic dental treatments at our modern and 5 star rated Twickenham practice, and with good reason. Teeth whitening helps restore the youthfulness of your smile and is a great confidence booster.
Our whitening techniques make it possible for you to have a dazzling white smile in a simple, affordable and safe manner.
Dr Erum Khan, BDS, LDS RCS (Edin) GDC No: 80095 has whitened many patients teeth and has also helped to transform their smile with a variety of cosmetic dental procedures.
The Zoom Teeth Whitening system we use in our Twickenham practice is one of the safest and the most popular system on the market. It uses a gentle bleaching process to lighten discolourations in your tooth enamel and is also accelerated by a powerful surgical light.
The light in Zoom Whitening ensures the whitening reaction with your teeth accelerates the process compared with conventional tooth whitening procedures. This results in lighter and whiter teeth in much quicker time, or typically within just one hour.
Zoom Whitening is the product used on Extreme Makeover in the United States and has been used on millions of happy patients worldwide.
This option involves creating some soft ‘trays’ which fit snugly around your teeth, providing you with your own personalised and very best teeth whitening kit. By applying the whitening gel into the trays and wearing them for 2 hours each day, the whitening gel slowly reacts with your teeth to gently lightening it over a course of several days.
This enables you to control how white you would like your teeth to appear. We always recommend coming back to the practice after a few days of wearing your home tooth whitening trays to ensure your whitening is progressing well and that there is no uncomfortable sensitivity.
During this appointment we will also check how white your teeth have gone compared to when you started… most of our patients are amazed at the whiteness of their new smile.
A survey has revealed that 40% of UK adults don’t smile because they are ashamed of the state of their teeth. Two thousand people took part in the survey, which was conducted by Wrigley’s as part of National Smile Month.
The findings also showed that 24% of people will not smile if the people around them are not and that 20% refrain from smiling because they want to be taken seriously.
National Smile Month is a campaign being run by the British Dental Health Foundation to promote good dental health.
“I can’t believe the difference between the before and after photos. I had teeth whitening performed by Dr.Erum Khan who was absolutely fantastic. Her attention to detail is second to none and knowledge of teeth whitening is first class.
My teeth look completely different now and I’m thrilled with the results. I have been going to the Montrose Smile dental practice for nearly 10 years now and highly recommend it to anybody looking for a top class dental practice.”
“I’ve always suffered with anxiety around going to the dentist, so I’m really thankful to Dr Khan for making me feel so at ease that I can actually say that I enjoyed visiting the dentist! Dr Khan really took the time to explain what she was doing at each step including why it was being done and how it may feel.
She had a great manner and was really friendly. I was self conscious about the shade of my teeth so I went for teeth whitening and haven’t stopped smiling since!
Thank you Dr Khan and your team for giving me this new confidence, not only with the smile but also with visiting the dentist. Highly recommended!”
