Tooth whitening is a successful and simple method of lightening the colour of your teeth. Teeth yellow with age but drinking tea, coffee and colas all speed up this process. Smoking and other staining agents will also contribute to darkening of the teeth. The whitening technique removes the staining agent that has penetrated deep within the tooth. The degree of whiteness achieved will vary from patient to patient and with the type of whitening process chosen. We can advise upon the suitability of treatment based upon your tooth and gum condition.
Home whitening involves the use of custom made trays over a period of time at home. This technique involves taking impressions (moulds) of your teeth. These impressions are sent to a laboratory where a technician fabricates custom made trays designed to fit closely to your teeth. This customisation allows for maximum contact between the whitening gel and your teeth. This system also minimises the gel’s contact with gum tissue and reduces any gum irritation. A whitening gel is syringed into the trays and these are seated over your teeth for anything from an hour to overnight. These trays can be kept and used for future whitening, so further impression taking and tray fabrication is not required. Successful whitening can normally be achieved after two/three weeks, however, this may vary with certain types of discolouration.
