We appreciate that a bright, healthy smile can help you to feel better and more confident about yourself. Your smile is the first thing that people notice about you and we can help you to achieve a great smile.
Lifestyle and ageing can lead to darkening of the teeth. Tooth whitening can be a highly effective safe way of lightening the colour of the teeth, without removing or damaging the tooth surface. It cannot make a complete colour change, but will help restore teeth back to the colour they once were.
Home Whitening is a safe, convenient and simple method of tooth whitening, using a mild bleaching gel in custom made trays, which cover the teeth. We will take impressions so that these trays can be made by our expert technicians. The trays are worn at home daily, usually for 2 hours, for a 14 day period to achieve optimum results.
The result achieved will vary from person to person, and is dependant on the starting shade and the original natural colour of the teeth, with the final result not always being predictable. Whitening will not change the colour of fillings, crowns, bridges and veneers. Intermittent top ups of the treatment are recommended and these can easily be done at home with your whitening trays. This will keep your smile looking great.
The whitening products used by dentists are carefully controlled, so that no damage is caused to teeth. Some products available in beauty salons or to buy are based on a chemical, Chlorine dioxide, which can cause significant damage to tooth structure and gums.
