How do teeth get stained?
The food and drinks we consume stain our teeth. Smoking causes further stains by darkening the natural white colour of teeth.
What is teeth whitening?
Teeth whitening is a successful and simple method of lightening the colour of your teeth. The degree of whiteness achieved will vary from patient to patient and with the type of bleaching process chosen. It is a form of teeth bleaching.
We don’t do laser teeth whitening (blue light) in our dental studio. Instead, we work with the Opalescence brand which is a take-home kit with a mould and syringes of bleach. We create a custom-made mouth tray for you into which a whitening gel is placed. You then wear the tray while sleeping or for short periods during the day (30 minutes to a few hours).
How long will it take until I see results?
Results are normally seen over a period of 2 weeks, depending on how severe the staining is and whether the patient smokes or drinks lots of red wine and coffee.I want to make a booking now!
