A noticeable and simple enhancement to your smile might be as quick and easy as a teeth whitening procedure. Studies have shown that one of the first things a person notices on someone else is their smile/teeth. Having your teeth whitened can be the difference between having that bright spark you’ve always wanted in your smile!
At Dentists & Doctors we understand our clients lead busy lives, and that is why we provide you with different options to achieve whiter and brighter teeth.
The first option which we have available is the professional in-chair whitening. This is where our Dentist administers the whitening agent on your teeth while you are seated in the dental chair. The Dentist uses a more concentrated whitening product to get you a more instant and immediate result. The entire process takes about 45-60 minutes.
In chair teeth whitening gives you immediate results, often reaching a minimum of 5 shades lighter teeth in the one sitting! It is a relatively easy procedure and we ensure your gums, lips and areas of gum recession are protected before we start.
The second option we provide is a take home whitening kit, where you do the whitening from the comfort of your home and in your own time. Upper and lower trays which fit around your teeth are worn for a duration of 20-30 minutes daily for several consecutive days until the desired shade is achieved.
Is there anything I need to do before whitening my teeth?
If it has been more than twelve months since your last dental visit we recommend a Comprehensive Dental examination, Scale, Clean and X rays are to be completed. This is to help ensure you achieve the maximum results from your teeth whitening procedure as staining, calculus or tooth decay will prevent you from achieving the best results!
How long will my Teeth Whitening last?
Depending on your social lifestyle, oral hygiene and dietary habits the longevity of your Teeth Whitening can vary. If you are a smoker or regularly drink tea, coffee or soft drinks, chances are your teeth whitening will require more regular and ongoing maintenance.
Twice daily toothbrushing and regular flossing will also assist in removing plaque and food build up on your teeth and help keep your teeth looking brighter and white for longer!
