Teeth Whitening

Wedding and party seasons are both fast approaching and this is the time when we want to look our best. If you have discoloured or yellowing teeth, it can really knock your confidence and make you reluctant to give your best, full smile.

Teeth whitening may be something you’ve never considered before, believing it is a treatment for celebrities. Well, this is no longer the case and more and more people are seeing their dentist for whitening treatments at much more affordable prices.

The teeth whitening at Markham Associates Dental Surgeons in Reading is both safe and effective. They will take impressions of your teeth and then produce specifically tailored whitening trays to fit perfectly in your mouth, providing you with comfortable and secure mouth trays.

The mouth trays will be used with a special whitening gel and you will take these home, with full instructions on how to use them, for a few weeks. After this, you will come back to visit the dentist and they can assess the lightening effect. Zoom whitening is also an option and provides a surgery based solution that offers a speedier way to whiter teeth utilising a special light to accelerate the whitening process.

Some of the major benefits of having professional teeth whitening, rather than shop bought products, is that the trays are custom built for the patient, so fit perfectly. The professional lightening gel is more effective than the shop bought kits. Your treatment is overseen by a professional, therefore sensitivity and gum irritation can be avoided.

Emergency Dentist

A dental emergency can leave patients in a lot of pain. This could be caused by a broken or lost tooth, a lost or broken filling, crown, denture or bridge, an infection or just plain old tooth decay, causing pain. Whatever the emergency, Markham Associates offer same day emergency appointments five days a week between 8.30am to 5.30pm and until 7pm on Tuesday and Thursdays.


This service is open to registered and non-registered patients. If you need an emergency dentist call on 0118 957 4308 or 0118 950 2275. Further information is also available on Facebook.
