Teeth whitening


Whitening is a safe method to brighten up your smile when used in professional hands. The active ingredient is carbamide peroxide in a glycerine base. The benefit is that teeth can be whitened fairly quickly and in a simple safe manner.  The bleaching material has a neutral pH and new research indicating the safety for use on the soft tissues (gingivae, cheek, tongue and throat).

 
Unlike over the counter kits and other non- professional procedures, which often achieve unsatisfactory results, our teeth whitening treatments are:

  • Fast and convenient
  • Long lasting
  • Low sensitivity
  • Proven to be safe and effective
  • Performed by a Dentist



 

How does it work?

The dentist first takes an impression of your teeth so that custom-made deep bleaching trays can be produced. Following this, each night for 14 consecutive nights, the trays are to be worn in conjunction with a gentle whitening gel. You will have a review appointment with your dentist and if you are happy with the final shade of your teeth no further treatment will be required.  However,  if you would like whiter teeth further home whitening or in surgery whitening can be used to achieve your desired shade. 


How long do the effects of bleaching last?

To maintain this effect, the trays should be worn for one night every eight weeks. If used correctly, the results of deep bleaching can be long lasting. The treatment’s success is due to the unique design of the bleaching tray, as it allows maximum contact between the whitening gels and the teeth. These gels are specially created to minimise sensitivity while allowing a longer duration of effect.


Does bleaching cause sensitivity?

As with all teeth-whitening treatments, patients may encounter some sensitivity when whitening. However, we can combat this very easily when seen by the dentist.  Your dentist will be happy to advise you of all maintenance guidelines so you can continue appreciating the benefits of your treatment.
