Brighten your smile and boost your confidence with our brilliant stain busting treatments. We offer two effective whitening procedures that use a gentle chemical process to combat discolouration and freshen up your look.
Teeth can lose their sparkle for a variety of reasons including:
- Dark coloured tipples such as coffee, cola and red wine
- Alteration of the inner structure of the tooth caused by certain medications or trauma
- Thinning of the enamel due to ageing
What do the treatments involve?
First, we will try to establish the cause of any discolouration and recommend the most appropriate treatment based on the condition of your teeth. We’ll then let you know how long it will take and how often you’ll have to come in for treatment. Your options are:
Tailor-made whitening trays are produced from impressions taken of your teeth. You will be shown how to use them with a special whitening gel and then wear the trays for a few hours during the day or at night. Teeth will start to appear whiter and brighter over 2-4 weeks.
Laser or power whitening
This procedure also uses a whitening gel which is applied to your teeth while your gums are protected. A laser is then shone onto the teeth, which helps speed up the process. It takes approximately one and half hours and is used alongside home whitening.
Is whitening suitable for everyone?
This smile enhancing treatment is suitable for most people, however whitening is not effective on dental restorations such as composite fillings or porcelain crowns. Also results will depend on how discoloured your teeth are when you start the process and effective whitening may take a few visits to achieve.
