Dental Care For Everyone!

You’re smile says more about you than the car you drive, the clothes you wear, or the hairstyle you choose. Unlike your favourite suit or dress, you wear your smile every day, and it never goes out of fashion.
So, what does your smile say about you?
The colour of your teeth can be affected by many factors including the aging process, staining from food and drink, trauma, illness, disease and medication. Professional teeth whitening from a dentist is the only safe, legal, and effective method of achieving a whiter, brighter smile.
Here at Smile Chic we use Boutique Whitening, which is a premium quality, professional teeth whitening system that delivers superior results, and we love it!
Teeth Whitening Treatment
Dr. Persheng will first carry out a full dental examination to assess the overall health of your mouth. Provided everything looks good, Dr. Persheng will then explain your teeth whitening options.
With Boutique, you can whiten your teeth during the day, or overnight as you sleep, depending on what suits your lifestyle.
Dr. Persheng will take some photographs to check the existing shade of your teeth. Then an impression or digital scan will be taken and sent to the Boutique Whitening laboratory, where your bespoke, custom-fit whitening trays will be made.
Your trays will be fitted at the practice. Dr. Persheng will show you how to use the whitening syringes and explain how long to wear the trays for. In most cases, you will see an improvement in just a few days and optimum results in around 3 weeks.
It really is that simple!

Why consider boutique teeth whitening
Why is home whitening the best option?
In-chair whitening with a lamp (sometimes referred to as laser-whitening) is seen as the gold standard of teeth whitening by many patients. However, there is questionable evidence to prove the effectiveness of these lamps.
On the other hand, there is an overwhelming body of evidence to show that dentist-supervised home whitening is the most effective way to whiten teeth.
Here at Smile Chic we have helped many people achieve beautiful, whiter smiles using Boutique Whitening. Boutique Whitening is a system that we trust, that we use ourselves, and that we find gives consistently amazing results. It’s definitely our favourite whitening brand!
Day or Night whitening?
Boutique Whitening comes in different formulas so that you can whiten your teeth during the day, or overnight as you sleep.
The Day kit contains 6% hydrogen peroxide and is designed for 2 hours wear per day.
The Night kits come as either 10% or 16% carbamide peroxide, which is designed for 6 hours overnight wear.
While both kits will produce the same end result, your dentist will be able to explain the differences in the types of bleach and advise the correct formula for you. This will be based on various factors, including your lifestyle, preferences and dental history.
Is there any possible issues or side effects?
Tooth whitening is a very safe procedure when performed correctly. However, there are some potential side effects that can occur.
The most common side effect of any whitening procedure is sensitivity. This problem affects, to varying degrees, up to 75% of people. Sensitivity can range from slight discomfort, to pain which results in you being unable to use the gels any longer.
Another potential side effect of the whitening process is gum, or gingival, irritation. This occurs when the whitening gel has been in prolonged contact with the gums.
