about tooth whitening

Tooth whitening is one of the most popular treatments available at our dental clinic. It is one of the quickest and most effective ways of improving the appearance of your smile.

Contrary to popular belief, tooth whitening is not just designed for the ‘young’ . The average age of patients at our practice who benefit from this treatment is over 50. The reason for this is that the natural lightness and brightness of the teeth gradually fades over time. Discoloration is due to things we commonly consume like tea, coffee and red wine. Tooth whitening will restore the color of your teeth and give you a healthy smile you are proud of.

Professional tooth whitening can achieve results in a few weeks that are impossible to get from toothpastes and mouthwashes alone.

at home tooth whitening

Our bespoke at home kits enable you to whiten your teeth from the comfort of your own home, in a timeframe that suits you. For optimal results, we recommend that you use our kit once a night for at least 2 weeks.

In short, it involves the dentist taking an impression of your top and bottom teeth. From this we create a custom mouth guard into which you place the whitening gel and wear overnight whilst you sleep. As they are custom made, these kits are far superior to ‘off the shelf products’ and will give much better long term results.

No enamel or tooth structure is removed during the process, the procedure is relatively painless with no injections required. The active ingredient in the product is usually hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide. As this is broken down, oxygen is released within the tooth which will break down staining and make the tooth lighter. The results of tooth whitening will usually last up to at least 3 years and can be easily maintained with occasional ‘top up’ treatment.
