Teeth whitening (or bleaching) is a great and easy way to improve the appearance and colour of your teeth. Over time teeth can become discoloured or stained and teeth whitening can predictably lighten the teeth shade. It is a safe treatment when carried out by our experienced dental professionals. It is non-invasive to the tooth structure and can avoid the need for extensive treatment like veneers or crowns.
Tooth whitening is simple and the majority of the treatment is carried out at home. After an assessment moulds are taken of your teeth, so customised bleaching trays can be made. They will fit very precisely to your teeth and around your gums. These trays will hold the bleaching gel against your teeth and they are worn over night for 2-3 weeks. Photos are taken before and after the treatment so you can see the difference.
Teeth remain lighter for about 2 years, but it is simple and cost effective to ‘top-up’ the bleaching from time to time by purchasing more whitening gel from the practice.
