Professional teeth whitening

There are two different methods for teeth whitening; in-surgery treatments or professionally directed at-home treatments. In-surgery treatments typically involve the use of a high-concentration whitening gel that is applied to the teeth and activated with a special light or laser. This method typically produces the most dramatic results in the shortest amount of time.

At-home treatments may involve the use of custom-fitted trays that are filled with a lower-concentration whitening gel and worn for several hours a day for a period of a couple of weeks. Over-the-counter products such as whitening toothpaste, strips, and gels should be avoided as they are very rarely effective. Teeth whitening can legally only be carried out by a dental professional so ensure that this is the case.

Teeth whitening is not a permanent solution and will need to be repeated in order to maintain the desired level of whiteness. It is also important to consult with a dental professional before undergoing any teeth whitening treatment, as certain types of staining or discoloration may not respond well to whitening and may require alternative treatments such as veneers or bonding.

Teeth whitening is a safe and effective way to improve the appearance of discoloured or stained teeth, but it is important to consult with us to determine the best treatment approach for your individual needs.
