Teeth whitening is an increasingly popular and safe dental procedure that can instantly refresh your smile. It works quickly to whiten stained or discoloured teeth, leaving a fresh youthful appearance.
As we age, our teeth often become darker due to changes in the mineral structure of the tooth. This may be caused by tobacco, coffee, tea, red wine and even antibiotics. Tooth discolouration may also occur following dental trauma, orthodontic treatment and root canal therapy.
We offer patients the choice between in-chair or take home treatment. With in-chair whitening, a light-activated tooth whitening gel is applied to the teeth whilst you sit comfortably in the dental chair for about one hour. During this time you are able to listen to music or watch television and chill.
Take-home bleaching can be done at your own pace, which normally takes up to several weeks to see results.
A combination of in-chair and take-home whitening generally achieves the best and longest-lasting results.
The effectiveness and final result may vary for each individual, and it is essential that your teeth are properly assessed before treatment to give you the best result possible.
If you would like to know what is the best teeth whitening solution for you, please call us for a whitening consultation.
