Tooth whitening is a well known procedure that has increased in popularity over recent years.
The aim of tooth whitening is to lighten the shade of your natural teeth to give a whiter appearance.
There are several ways in which this can be achieved from kits you use at home to a procedure carried out in the dentists chair.
For many patients tooth whitening is a fast and cost effective way to dramatically improve their smile.
We promote the use of a professional tray whitening system, one that has been tried and tested and is approved by your dentist.
Tooth whitening is a straight-forward and simple procedure but it does give rise to various possible risks and complications and therefore should only ever be done on the recommendation of your dentist and under the supervision of a suitably qualified dental professional.
If whitening is something you are interested in the first step should be to consult with your dentist. An evaluation will be performed to determine your suitability for the procedure and a discussion will take place about what results you can expect from the treatment.
Your dentist will then take some impressions to have some custom made whitening trays constructed and you'll be asked to come back about 1 week later to have these fitted and be shown how to use the whitening solution.
We recommend wearing the trays and the solution for an agreed period of time each day over the course of 1-3 weeks. The results can often be seen quickly and once the desired result is achieved you can stop the treatment and top it up as and when needed.
It is important to remember that tooth whitening will only effect natural teeth so if you have any fillings or crowns/bridges then you should speak to your dentist about your opinions before commencing any treatment.
