Our tooth whitening service is carried out by our dental hygienist.
There are many different systems for whitening and we have experimented with most.
We feel that we have chosen the best system to get a comfortable high quality end result.
Not all patients have teeth that will whiten because of deep staining from antibiotic therapy, natural discolorations, some dental materials and past root canal treatment.
First off we ascertain whether whitening will work for you. If you have staining and calculus (tartar) on your teeth surfaces this will need to be cleaned off.
Models are then made for your teeth and custom made trays are constructed that fit intimately to the tooth surfaces which you wear like mini mouthguards.
Whitening gel is placed in the trays and worn for short spells over two weeks and the teeth lighten up. Every few months a day of whitening will hold the tooth colour optimally.
