Teeth Whitening is a simple procedure to improve your smile for little effort or cost.
Teeth Whitening is a non-invasive cosmetic dental procedure which effectively brightens stained or discoloured teeth, taking years off your age and increasing confidence. Over the past several years we have seen an increase in awareness generally as to how to improve the look of discoloured teeth. Even after professional cleaning, teeth long-used to coffee, red wine, cigarettes or other staining agents will not return to their original youthful colour.
Tooth whitening options include:
Light-Activated Teeth Whitening & Procedure
Chair-side, light-activated teeth whitening has the advantage of being very effective and also the least time consuming. The latest available systems use a plasma arc or xenon-halogen light source to activate the whitening agent which is applied to the teeth. The lips, gums and the inside of the mouth are isolated and protected before the whitening gel is applied. Whitening teeth using the light-activated method takes just two hours or less and has been clinically proven to lighten teeth an average of 8 shades whiter in just one visit! Tooth whitening treatment is completely safe and the benefits can be seen for years. We use ZOOM.
Light-activated whitening should be not confused with laser teeth whitening treatments.
At-Home Teeth Whitening
Our dentist-supervised at-home teeth whitening is also a convenient way to whiten teeth. A whitening gel is applied to a customised mouthguard which is then worn regularly for a few hours or overnight. This will result in an improved colour in just a few days.
While whitening toothpastes are popular, they do not alter the intrinsic color of your teeth, merely enhance the effectiveness of stain removal , and they may be abrasive so be careful not to use them frequently.
