Do you have dark or stained teeth? Maybe you would like to whiten them? Tooth discolouration can be multifactorial.
Professional tooth whitening is a very popular and simple process. A great way to safely brighten your teeth and improve their appearance. However, a professional assessment is important to ensure safe and successful treatment.
We offer 3 types of tooth whitening systems as not all teeth will lighten effectively and not everyone is diligent at applying the gel daily for the recommended period of time advised to brighten your teeth.
There are two different types of formula's in tooth whitening gels; hydrogen peroxide and carbamide peroxide. Both release hydrogen ions that break down the stains in your teeth, and make your teeth brighter.
Sometimes tooth whitening can cause sensitivity. This can be due to poor oral health, exposed dentine on teeth and caries. This is why it is important to see your dentist first so that we can give you advice and guidance.
We offer three systems , Boutique whitening, Zoom whitening & Enlighten, a premium whitening system. All involve bespoke tooth whitening trays that are custom made for you.
1/ Assessment to ensure your oral health is at it's optimum
2/ Impressions of your teeth to make your professional custom made trays
3/ Appointment to fit the trays & ensure that they are indeed a good fit. At this appointment we show you how to apply the gel.
4/ This depends on the system chosen to best suit your needs. We will review you after two weeks of wearing your trays and using your gels.
Tooth whitening is an ongoing process. You can purchase more gels every 6-12 months to ensure you continue to have a bright smile. Statistically, tooth whitening can last up to 2 years, however the shade of your teeth will dull slightly.
We also recommend that you continue to optimise your oral health with good oral hygiene, regular visits to the dentist and hygienist and eating a well balanced diet.
