Teeth are stained by the foods and drinks we consume. Smoking further stains teeth and the natural bright, white shade becomes darkened. Teeth whitening is a successful and simple method of lightening the colour of your teeth. The degree of whiteness achieved will vary from patient to patient and with the type of bleaching process chosen.
Your teeth can be lightened immediately using this technique which is conducted in the practice.
In-surgery BriteSmile 1-hour power whitening can whiten teeth by up to several shades, brightening your teeth dramatically to its natural shade.
Gel is applied to your teeth and a special light is positioned over your teeth to activate the gel.
Home Whitening A custom made mouth tray is created. A whitening gel is placed in the tray which you then wear whist asleep or for short periods during the day. Results are normally seen within 2-3 weeks.
Deep Bleaching (Combination)
Deep Bleaching works by increasing the tooth's permeability to oxygen which breaks down stain molecules. It is a combination treatment meaning that there is a 2 week home treatment followed by a 1 hour visit at the dentist.
