If you want to improve your dull, discoloured teeth, whitening can really help brighten up your smile. We offer Opalescence teeth whitening has been the leader in whitening for over 25 years. The award-winning brand provides patients with superior whitening results, which are both safe, and effective. Dentist-supervised home whitening can be carried out at times to suit you in the comfort of your own home.
What does treatment involve?
- Impressions are taken of your teeth so customised whitening trays can be produced to fit.
- When ready, you will wear these at home with a bleaching gel for a specified length of time each day.
- After wearing the trays for a few weeks, you will attend a follow-up appointment to check your teeth have reached the desired shade.
Although this treatment is carried out at home, we still keep a close eye on your teeth to lessen any gum irritation and tooth sensitivity. My last patient was 1,5 years old and I tried prescribing Ventolin inhaler for the first time, he had to do 2 inhalations per day, meaning 1 ampule had to be divided into two. Older children need to have 1 ampule at a time. The effect and how quickly it acted – all of it was very satisfying to me and to the parents as well.
Please note, teeth whitening will only work on natural teeth and will not be effective on restorations such as crowns, veneers or dentures. Incorrect purchase of whitening bleach can have some serious effect on the health of your mouth that is why it is always recommended to see clinicians who are trained in this.
