One of the most popular ways of improving your smile is through a teeth whitening treatment.
With tea and coffee, smoking, trauma and the natural aging process all contributing to discoloured and stained teeth, having your teeth whitened is a great way to quickly improve your smile.
Teeth whitening is a non-invasive procedure involving the application of a peroxide based whitening gel.
This can be done by your dentist during an appointment, or we can supply you with the materials so you can do it at home.
Should I do teeth whitening?
While most people are suitable for a teeth whitening treatment, some are not due to the health of their teeth or gums. It’s important to have a dentist assess your teeth first to avoid any complications.
How do I know if my teeth are suitable?
Before you start any teeth whitening treatment, you need to visit your dentist who can assess the current condition of your teeth. They will be able to carry out a thorough check of both your gums and teeth to identify if your teeth are suitable or not.
What does a teeth whitening assessment include?
During a teeth whitening assessment, your dentist will check for any untreated decay, the current state of any veneers, fillings or crowns, the thickness of enamel on your teeth and if you have any receding gums. They will also note the probable causes of any teeth discolouration and identify if that is occurring on the inside or outside of your teeth.
