Teeth Whitening

Brighter, Whiter Teeth

Teeth whitening has become extremely popular over the past several years. It is a great way to improve your appearance; it is reasonably priced; non-surgical; and non-invasive.

The treatment involves wearing custom made trays which carry the whitening agent. The length of time they are worn daily varies from thirty minutes to overnight. The treatment takes approximately seven to ten days, depending on the shade you require.

Typically, one would expect up to seven shades whiter. Most people are suitable for this treatment, however, you should speak to your Dentist and discuss all options.

Teeth whitening kits from the Dentist produce faster and more effective results because they contain a stronger peroxide-bleaching agent than whitening kits purchased over the counter.

Another benefit of trays and gels from the Dentist is that the trays are custom made and fit your teeth exactly. Over-the-counter trays are generic sized and could allow the bleaching agent to come into contact with your gums, causing irritation.

Teeth Whitening FAQs

Why should I get a Teeth Whitening treatment?

Teeth Whitening is used to fix staining or tooth discolouration on your natural teeth. If you drink coffee, red wine or tea, you may develop staining on your teeth over time. Using tobacco products or smoking, taking some types of medications and dental injuries can cause discolouration. Also, as a patient ages, the enamel will begin to thin, which causes the teeth to look more yellow.

Am I a suitable patient for Teeth Whitening?

In general most people are suitable for a teeth whitening procedure provided they have the majority of their own natural teeth and healthy gums. Teeth that are yellow are more likely to respond to the teeth whitening treatment.

Who is Teeth Whitening not suitable for?

Not everyone is the right candidate for teeth whitening. For example, women who are pregnant or breastfeeding should wait to get whitening. People who have dental bridges or crowns may want to talk to their dentist before considering whitening. Children should be at least 18 to get this type of treatment.

How white will my teeth be after the treatment?

Our teeth whitening results over the years generally show patients teeth turning 6 - 8 shades lighter. But this can depend on a few factors including the dentin contained in your teeth, how well you look after your teeth, and disciplined you are with the teeth whitening system we provide.

Is Teeth Whitening harmful to teeth?

All of our teeth whitening treatments are undertaken with the supervision of one of our dentists, so you can be assured that they will only offer the right treatment for you. Additionally the quantity of peroxide containing in our bleaching gels is very low, so will only whiten your teeth and not alter the structure or surface in any way.
