Ask many people, even those with healthy teeth and gums, what they would change about their smile and they would say that they would like whiter teeth.
Teeth whitening is one of the simplest, gentlest and most affordable ways to enhance your smile. Many patients report that tooth whitening treatment has made them look and feel years younger.
What's more, because the treatment only takes between two to three weeks in most cases, it's the perfect way to boost your smile and your self-confidence for a special occasion, such as a wedding or family event.
Teeth become stained by certain foods and drinks, including coffee and red wine, and can become naturally dull over time.
At Sandown Dental & Implant Clinic we offer two types of tooth whitening: home whitening and in-chair whitening at the practice.
If you opt for home teeth whitening, you will need to visit the practice so your dentist can take impressions of your teeth in order to create custom-made home whitening trays. These will be made to fit your teeth exactly, and you will also be given whitening gel to put in the trays. Once your trays are ready we will show you how to use them. You should place a small amount of gel in the trays and wear them for two hours a day for two to three weeks or until the desired shade has been reached.
Chair-side whitening is carried out in the practice and your appointment will last about one hour. During this time, super-strength gel is applied to your teeth while you sit in the chair, kick-starting the whitening process.
Teeth whitening is one of the simplest and kindest ways to enhance your smile without destroying the structure of your teeth. To learn more about teeth whitening, contact the practice today on 028 9047 1070.
