Brighten your smile with Teeth Whitening!
We use a non invasive treatment to make your teeth lighter; teeth whitening can't make your teeth brilliant white, but it can lighten the existing colour by several shades. Your teeth will appear brighter and whiter which will give you a healthier, more attractive looking smile.
Is teeth whitening suitable for everyone?
In general most people can have the treatment. There are a small number of people for whom caution is advised, for example pregnant women and nursing mothers (although there are no known adverse reactions) and patients with pre-existing sensitivity (this should be addressed before starting whitening treatment) or those under 18 years of age. If you have had dental work on your front teeth, such as crowns, white fillings or veneers, teeth whitening may not be suitable as the materials used do not whiten, however, if you are still keen to proceed, you could have additional work to replace these. Your dentist will advise you whether whitening is right for you.
What happens during teeth whitening at the dentist?
If you have teeth whitening you will need to make several visits to the practice over a couple of months. Your dentist will take an impression of your teeth to make a mouthguard and will instruct you how to use it with a bleaching gel. Then, using your mouthguard at home, you regularly apply the gel for a specified period of time over a few weeks. Some whitening gels can be left on for up to eight hours at a time, which shortens the treatment period to one week.
