A bright, healthy white smile can take years off your appearance and boost your confidence.
Teeth can become darker as we age and also become stained by bacterial pigments, dietary habits (such as drinking coffee, tea, red wine) and tobacco.
Tooth whitening is an affordable and effective way to combat common causes of tooth discolouration, while boosting your self-confidence and improving your appearance. For the great majority of patients it is a very effective and safe treatment.
How does it work?
Oxidizing agents such as hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide are used to lighten the shade of the teeth.
Teeth whitening is considered to be a very safe treatment that does not cause any damage to teeth structure. The only reported side affect is temporary teeth sensitivity that always goes after 1 or 2 days. This can easily be prevented or minimised using the latest Relief Gel that is now available.
Teeth Whitening Take Home Treatment
At The Dental Spa we use Phillips Zoom Home Whitening and offer both Day and Night Whitening.
Tooth whitening gel is placed by you in a tray that has been custom-made to fit over your teeth, like a very thin gum shield. The tray containing the gel is worn for a set period, once a day for 7-14 days.
- Stage 1 – We take impressions to make bespoke tooth whitening trays to fit around your teeth.
- Stage 2 – We fit the trays, decide on the shade you’d like to achieve, and give you the whitening gel with specific instructions on how to whiten your teeth at home.
- Stage 3 – We usually review you approximately 2-3 weeks later to take your new shade.
