Teeth Whitening

If you are looking for professional teeth whitening then look no further! There is now no need to have yellow, discoloured or stained teeth.

New techniques now make it possible to provide you with teeth you can be proud of and that will keep you smiling for every occasion.

You can choose between immediate whitening, which is performed in the surgery (also power or laser whitening) and takes just 90 minutes. Alternatively, tooth whitening can be achieved at home using specialised trays and an active gel, not to be confused with those over the counter in retail stores. The trays are made FOR YOU in a dental laboratory to the shape of your mouth and teeth for maximum efficiency. The gel used is not available other than from a registered dental practitioner after an assessment has been performed to establish your suitability.

The trays with a tooth whitening gel are worn for upto a couple of hours during day or night for a period of 2-4 weeks. It does vary from person to person.The gel is non erosive or abrasive to the teeth. It doesn’t remove any surface of the teeth.

Teeth whitening can be used when you are not happy with the colour of your teeth, or they are stained, discoloured or even when you have a single discoloured rootcanal treated tooth.

For a long term good result, it is necessary to brush your teeth regularly, maintain your oral hygiene, seeing your dentist and hygienist regularly, cutting down on food and drinks that may stain your teeth and of course smoking!

Something to remember …….

Tooth whitening only works on natural teeth.
