We all naturally have different coloured teeth – some are yellowy, some are more beige but very few are actually ‘white’. The procedure involves the dentist taking impressions so that special trays can be made that fit over the teeth. The patient applies the whitening gel to the trays and then wears them for a couple of hours per day. Two weeks is usually sufficient to give a new brighter smile.
Teeth Whitening is one of the most popular cosmetic dental treatments available today, teeth whitening is both effective and proven to lighten the natural colour of your teeth without removing the tooth surface.
Teeth can become discoloured as we get older. Many patients also enjoy tooth-staining products like coffee or red wine, and some smoke, which has a clear effect on the shade of your teeth.
The entire tooth whitening cosmetic treatment is usually completed within 3-4 weeks. The dental team will initially make impressions of your teeth in the first visit. The treatment starts in the dental chair, but you will be given instructions so that you're able to continue the treatment at home. You will usually apply the tooth whitening product on your teeth regularly for fast and satisfying whitening results.
This is dependent on how well you look after your teeth. If you regularly visit the dentist for checkups and visit our hygienist when recommended, you can expect the whitening effect to last up to a year. Teeth whitening can easily be topped up by purchasing additional syringes of gel and using your existing trays. A pack of four syringes is £45 pounds and this can be done annually or every six months. The longer your teeth whitening lasts also depends on what you choose to eat, drink and avoiding tobacco. Of course, if you continue to enjoy tooth-staining products the whitening is likely to not last as long.
There are a lot of choices when it comes to whitening toothpaste. Speak to us at Marchmont Dental about the recommended toothpaste to use. Teeth whitening toothpaste does not affect the natural colour of your teeth, but the right toothpaste can help remove staining to help make the effect last.
