Whitening your teeth the safe and professional way!

Get your smile ready for Valentines Day!

Looking for a quick and easy way to improve the appearance of your teeth? Then look no further! Why not have teeth whitening carried out by dental professional!

You may ask does it make a difference who carries out the treatment? Well actually yes it does. Its true you could probably get the treatment half the price at a beauty clinic or buy the treatment online but it would be carried out or bought from someone who has little or no knowledge about the mouth. You could potentially be causing danger to your teeth and gums by using these whitening systems.

Causing damage to your teeth

Many a time we have had patients come to us who have had this treatment at beauty clinics or pods in shopping centres. The most common complaints being hypersensitivity and even burnt gums from the gel being used.  These can cause a great deal of discomfort and even pain for the patient but your mouth should settle over time.

Being a dental practice the whitening gel we supply is of a particular percentage which beauty clinics cannot and should not use or supply.  The trays are all custom made to fit your dentition perfectly.  Many patients are tempted to buy gels from the internet as the strength of gel is almost double than what we recommend.  We strongly advise that you don’t do this.  There is a reason why dentists can only supply a certain strength, to ensure that no damage is caused to your teeth and gums.  By using the stronger gels it is highly likely damage will be caused to your teeth in some way or another.

The process

This is the quickest and easiest cosmetic treatment to carry out.  Impressions are taken of your teeth which we use to make your trays.  This will take a few days.  We supply you with your gels and then you carry out the treatment in the comfort of your own home.  You apply the gel into the trays and wear these for between 1-3 hours a day depending on the type we give you.  If you already have sensitive teeth we give you a slightly weaker gel.  It takes about 10-14 days for the whitening to achieve the full effect.  The best thing about this treatment is that you can top up the colour at any time.  Gels can be kept in the fridge and used when you need to top up.  It really is that easy!

Nearly anyone can have their teeth whitened but the treatment will have no effect on veneers, crowns, bridges or white fillings.  A quick examination with the dentist will confirm if you are a suitable candidate.
