WHY WHITEN MY TEETH?
There are many reasons why people get their teeth whitened. Some people have naturally darker teeth, whilst others may notice their teeth discolouring as they get older. Teeth may also become stained through habits, such as drinking tea, coffee and red wine, or smoking

THE TREATMENT PROCESS
You will have an initial consultation with a fully qualified dentist who will assess your suitability for the procedure.
If suitable, the dentist will take impressions of your teeth in order to construct your personal bleaching mouth guard. You then attend a second visit on which you will receive your whitening mouth guards (don't worry they are very subtle and easy to wear) and bleaching kit, together with instructions on how to use them.
On wearing your mouthguards, either overnight or during the day, for a period of 2-3 weeks your teeth will become progressively lighter. Top up kits of bleach (£20) will always be available from us should you require them in the future.
The main side effect of tooth whitening is an increase in sensitivity. If this occurs, it is always a temporary effect and can easily rectified with desensitising agents e.g. sensitive toothpaste
Does this procedure need repeating
The results of tooth whitening can last up to 5 years, but this varies from person to person. The dentist will offer an option on this prior to starting the treatment. If you notice your teeth beginning to darken again, you need only purchase a top up kit of bleaching gel (£20) - you would not need to have a new tray constructed.
