One of the most popular cosmetic dental treatments currently available is teeth whitening, probably because it is one of the fastest and most affordable ways of giving your teeth and smile a real boost.
Some habits in our daily life, such as the drinking of tea, red wine, smoking etc cause the surface of the enamel on our teeth to become discoloured. Whilst some of the surface staining can be removed by the hygienist, underlying discolouration remains, leaving our teeth still somewhat dull in colour.
Even if all surface staining were to be removed, the inner parts of our teeth naturally darken as we get older and no amount of brushing or change of diet will prevent this from happening.
Our teeth whitening treatment
We offer a custom home whitening treatment which allows our patients to whiten their teeth in the comfort of their own home.
Each patient will be given a set of trays which are custom made from impressions that we take of your teeth. This is important in order to prevent leakage of the whitening bleach onto the soft tissues of the mouth and it also ensures that the trays are comfortable to wear.
The trays are worn for a few hours each day, and the full whitening effects should be seen in approximately two weeks. We currently use White Dental Beauty’s ‘Novon’ range or ‘Poladay’ and ‘Polanight’ and naturally we will discuss the most appropriate treatment option during your consultation. As you’d expect, we will always be available during your treatment, should you have any questions or concerns.
The effects of the whitening treatment will last for a number of months, and the procedure can be repeated as often as you wish, with no detriment.
It is worth noting that this treatment is significantly more effective that the use of teeth whitening toothpastes which are strictly limited, by law, in the amount of the active ingredient they can include. Any improvements made using whitening toothpastes are likely to be very limited. So if you are really serious about having whiter teeth, please contact our team to see how we can help.
For patients who wish to whiten their smile, but in a subtle manner, the treatment can be adjusted to suit your requirements. There is no need to have the whitest “Hollywood” smile if you don’t want to! Please discuss this with our team during the consultation and we will seek just the right level of whiteness for you.
