Always wanted a whiter brighter smile?
Teeth whitening is a safe procedure that can lighten stained or discoloured teeth.
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. Teeth whitening, if maintained correctly, can leave you with results that last. As teeth whitening agents have varying levels of peroxide in them, all procedures should only be carried out by qualified dentists who use a clinically proven cosmetic dental treatment.
What is involved in teeth whitening?
Teeth whitening procedures are typically carried out at home by the patient following a consultation with a dentist. Teeth whitening may not be appropriate for all patients, so before commencing any teeth whitening procedure it is best to discuss expected outcomes and time frames with us.
Where appropriate, we will take impressions of your teeth to prepare a custom-made ultra thin mouth tray. 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 2 hours a day. Results are usually seen within two weeks. We 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.
The cost of teeth whitening will vary depending on the type of procedure. We will be able to provide you with a cost estimate prior to any treatment.
