Teeth whitening will make you smile
Tobacco, coffee, tea, alcohol, food additives, some developmental blemishes and natural aging all contribute to the discolouring and yellowing of teeth. While a professional dental clean can remove some staining, teeth whitening is a cosmetic dental treatment that can provide patients with great results that whiten the colour of teeth which have discoloured over time.
Professional bleaching is the most common form of teeth whitening. It is a proven safe and effective way to brighten stained, discolored teeth. And, the procedure is simple and more affordable than ever before.
Teeth whitening is one of the easiest ways to improve your appearance and boost your self-esteem and confidence.
What does teeth whitening involve?
Teeth whitening procedures are typically carried out at home by the patient. Following a consultation, a dentist will prepare a custom-made tray which fits into your mouth and over your teeth like a mouthguard. The tray is used to hold the bleaching gel close to the teeth.
Whitening gel is placed in the tray which is then worn for up to two hours a day. Results are usually seen within two weeks. Your dentist will advise you on how long to wear the tray both initially and for maintenance.
In some circumstances, teeth whitening procedures are provided in the dental chair by your dentist. Teeth whitening gel is placed on the teeth and the whitening process activated by use of a clinically proven ultraviolet light.
