Tooth whitening is an effective way of lightening the natural colour of your teeth without removing any of the tooth surface.
We take dental impressions of your mouth to make custom made thin trays. They are unobtrusive to wear. We supply you with 5 syringes of either 10% or 16% carbamide peroxide. Full instructions will be given at your delivery appointment, but the trays should be worn for a minimal of 3 hours at a time for a week or 2, depending on the initial staining or discolouration of the teeth, as will be discussed depending on your individual needs.
- The confidence to smile with a beautiful white smile.
- A more conservative way to brighten teeth shade without using crowns or veneers.
- Some sensitivity of the teeth may occur during the treatment and for 24 hours afterwards
- Not suitable for crowned, veneered or heavily filled teeth, as these will not change colour.
Did you know that it is now illegal for non-dentists to perform teeth whitening? New regulations from the GDC state that it should be done only under the prescription of a dentist, thereafter a dentist, hygienist or hyg/ therapist may carry out the procedure. See links from the General Dental Council and NHS for more details on the guidelines regarding teeth whitening.
