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 Langley Dental

A smile makeover with Teeth Whitening

Over time teeth naturally become stained and discoloured. This happens for a variety of reasons. Smoking, eating spicy foods and drinking a lot of tea, coffee or red wine are the most common causes why teeth become darker.  

Professional teeth whitening at Langley will make your teeth appear brighter and whiter. We only recommend having your teeth whitened by a professional dentist who can prescribe the correct amount of whitening gels and check on the health of your teeth before you start the treatment. Kits that you buy over the counter or online can be risky to health of your teeth. 

Teeth whitening in Langley

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

Philips Zoom! Teeth whitening at the practice 

A special gel is applied to your teeth by your dentist which immediately starts to remove stains by breaking down the dentin deposits and compounds that cause them. A lamp is then placed over your teeth which breaks down the gel on to your teeth. The process usually takes about an hour.  

Teeth whitening at home 

We make you bespoke whitening trays which you wear for a certain amount of time at home either during the day or overnight. We offer two brands for this treatment – Boutique whitening and Pola whitening. 

Philips Zoom! Teeth whitening

Philips Zoom! teeth whitening is carried out at the dental surgery in Langley. This form of teeth whitening is fast and dramatic with teeth proven to whiten up to 7 shades in just 60 minutes. 

Zoom! teeth whitening is very effective for those patients who have strong discolouration or if you have sensitive teeth. More patients report less or no sensitivity with this form of teeth whitening treatment. It is completely overseen by a professional dentist, so you are guaranteed to be in safe hands and have a service that is bespoke to you and your teeth. 

Boutique teeth whitening

In the convenience of your own home, you wear your teeth whitening trays on top of your teeth and these are filled with the prescribed amount of whitening gel. Boutique by Day is a good option for you if you want fast results. Your trays only need to be worn for 1 to 2 hours as it has a higher amount of whitening gel.   

Boutique by Night contains carbamide and is a far gentler process. With this option, you wear your trays over-night for a more gradual approach. This treatment is better suited to you if you have sensitive teeth or do not want to wear the trays during the day.

Poladay and Polanight teeth whitening

Pola also involves you wearing custom-made teeth whitening trays which are filled with a prescribed amount of gel. Poladay uses hydrogen peroxide and acts fast, meaning you can wear your trays for just 30 minutes in a day. Polanight uses carbamide peroxide which is a slower acting chemical and whitens your teeth overnight 

Both Pola teeth whitening treatments contain fluoride to protect against sensitivity and both Pola options allow you to choose the shade of white that you would like for your treatment.

Frequently asked questions about Teeth Whitening

Is there anything I need to avoid after teeth whitening treatments?

Your dentist will advise you more about this during your consultation. We generally advise that you avoid consuming dark, staining food and drinks for the first 24 hours after completing the in-chair teeth whitening treatment this includes tea, coffee and red wine. You will also be told not to smoke for 24 hours. 

Do teeth whitening treatments ruin teeth?

No, teeth whitening will not harm your teeth or the enamel on your teeth, providing you have your teeth whitened and looked after by a professional dentist. 

How long does teeth whitening treatments last for?

This varies according to every patient, but it can last up to 3 years. You can help to prolong the effects of teeth whitening by avoiding smoking and reducing the amount of food and drinks which can stain your teeth.
