Teeth Whitening

Do you have stained teeth that make you feel self-conscious about smiling? Teeth whitening can be a good solution for certain types of tooth staining.

Teeth can be stained by foods, drinks, smoking and certain medications. Teeth whitening is a safe procedure that can lighten the colour of your teeth by using a safe dental bleaching agent. Individual results vary and are based on your initial tooth colour and the nature of your tooth staining.

We deliver two types of teeth whitening:

1. Laser Whitening ( Phililps Zoom whitespeed ): here your teeth are whitened in the dental chair. A protective barrier is placed on your gums and lips, and a gel is placed on your teeth. A lamp is positioned over the teeth and this activates the bleaching process. After one hour you can expect your teeth to look a few shades brighter. Laser whitening is a popular choice with many patients who have an important event coming up where they want to look their best.

2. Home Whitening where we custom-make a lightweight plastic mouth tray for you that fits snugly over your teeth. You then put whitening gel inside the tray and wear it at night or for a few hours during the day. Results are normally seen over 3 days, your teeth will also appear whiter and brighter and the result should last for 3-5 years.
