Teeth whitening is one of the easiest and most cost effective ways to improve your appearance. Whiter teeth are seen as a sign of care and are more attractive – studies show that people respond to this.
If the appearance of your teeth is a cause of concern, this is an affordable first step before looking at treatments such as alignment or veneers. Things like tea, coffee, curries, red wine and smoking all take their toll and over the years, teeth become yellowish. The difference that a 7-10 day course of whitening will make is amazing.
If you are not sure, we are happy to have a consultation to assess the degree of improvement possible, desirable and also the suitability of this treatment for you. Not all stains can be removed by normal tooth whitening, and not to stains will respond in the same way so it is important to have one of our expert dentists do an assessment at the outset.
In conjunction with whitening, which lifts the shade of all the teeth, we can also offer specific stain removal using an air polishing technique. So, as an example, very specific stained teeth, due to a smoking or eating habit, can be tackled first before a general course of whitening.
Whitening under current regulations will take between 7-10 days for one course. This can be repeated to boost the results, however, most people will achieve a desirable state of whiteness without going unnaturally white.
This depends on individual habits - smoking, tea, coffee and excessive wine, will all start to discolour the teeth again. Good oral hygiene habits will help keep the teeth noticeably whiter for at least 3-4 years.
Yes, it performed after an assessment by a dentist and once shown how to handle the materials.
We can predict a minimum level of improvement, but we cannot predict how each individual outcome will be. However, repeated courses can achieve whiter shades. It is worth remembering that the perception of whiteness is very strongly influenced by the colour of the gums, lips and skin - dark skins make teeth look whiter than fair skins.
We offer three levels of whitening support. All involve a minimum of 7 days of self-application at home to achieve a successful outcome. The difference lies in the amount of dental chair time and the likely outcome. The entry level requires one visit to the dentist for 5-10 minutes; the intermediate stage requires 1 visit for 20 minutes and the highest level requires 3 visits, in total about 90 minutes.
