Teeth can lose their natural whiteness for a number of reasons including diet, ageing, certain medications, smoking and trauma, but a noticeably brighter smile can be achieved with teeth whitening.
We offer Philips Zoom Whitening at Chapeltown. This treatment can be either at the practice or at home.
More people are choosing to have whitening kits made so they can whiten their teeth at their own pace. Whitening kits consist of a custom-made mouth tray that is filled with whitening gel. The snug fit of the tray makes sure that the gel covers every visible part of the tooth.
Home whitening kits they are more effective and also allow us to keep a close eye on your teeth, which can help avoid side effects such as gum irritation and tooth sensitivity.
This is also known as ‘laser’ bleaching and involves placing the whitening gel on your teeth and using a bright light to accelerate the whitening process. It takes under two hours and is ideal for those who want noticeable results more quickly.
You can help maintain the whiteness of your teeth by avoiding food and drink that may cause staining, and brushing your teeth at least twice a day.
Teeth whitening does not provide permanent results but home whitening trays can be reused if a top-up is necessary.
