If you are looking for a way to give your smile a swift yet noticeable makeover then tooth whitening could be the answer.
Safe, quick, comfortable and easy, tooth whitening is a cost-effective way of transforming your teeth- resulting in a fresher, brighter and healthier look.
Why do our teeth darken?
Unfortunately the discolouration of teeth is a natural process which happens to everyone over time. There are many reasons for this- from diet and lifestyle to injury and certain long-term medications.
Tooth whitening works by removing the staining on your teeth with chemicals. We offer various types of tooth whitening- from in-surgery treatment to convenient kits for you to use at home. Following an initial consultation we will advise you on the treatment best suited for you.
Chairside whitening involves a gel being put on your gums to protect them, a bleaching agent is then applied to teeth and a UV light is shone on the teeth to lighten their colour. Chairside treatment will take around an hour and is more powerful- giving a stronger result.
Home-kits are very popular. After taking impressions of your teeth a specially made tray will be produced for you. You will use this tray to apply a bleaching gel to your teeth regularly in 30-60 minute periods over several weeks. It is important to follow the instructions given by your dentist in order to ensure the best results.
