Teeth Whitening

Why choose to have teeth whitening?

Just as our hair and skin colour vary so does the shade of our teeth. Few people have brilliant white teeth, and as we get older our teeth become darker.

This is partly due to the things we eat and drink and partly due to a change in tooth structure, a natural part of the ageing process.

Teeth whitening can be an effective way of lightening natural teeth. Whitening is a process where the discolouration is ‘whitened’ to a lighter shade by a process of oxidation. It removes the stain chemically and whitens the tooth structure.

Is teeth whitening safe?

It is a safe procedure when carried out under professional supervision. Treatment is usually complete within 2-3 weeks depending on the severity of the discolouration.

How many appointments would I need?

You will require two appointments.

At the first appointment, the dentist will carry out a shade assessment and take impressions so that custom bleaching trays can be constructed.

At the second appointment, the dentist will ensure that the custom bleaching trays fit comfortably and provide you with instructions on how to use the whitening.
