There are many systems and products available for this popular procedure.
We use a gentle system of home whitening which is usually carried out overnight.
At the initial appointment, impressions are taken of the teeth so that accurate, close fitting whitening trays may be made. These are clear, light weight trays that will hold the whitening gel against the teeth.
The starting tooth shade is measured and recorded.
At a second appointment, usually 2 weeks later, the trays are checked and full instructions are given.
The trays are worn with the supplied gel overnight. Whitening will then occur from 2 -3 weeks.
Some sensitivity may occur during treatment, but this is reversible and there are ways that this may be helped.
We are delighted to be able to whiten teeth because it is effective, safe and conservative to the teeth.
The resultant whitening may be maintained by ‘topping up’ with 6 nights bleaching per year.
Additional bleach may be obtained from the practice.
