Tooth whitening products can be an effective and conservative way of lightening the natural colour of your teeth without removing any of the tooth surface.
Our Boutique Whitening kits will only lighten the natural dentition and those individuals with fillings and crowns/veneers may need to have these replaced once the desired lightening has occurred.
Very few people have brilliant white teeth and our teeth naturally become more discoloured as we get older. Your teeth can be stained on the surface by foods and drinks such as tea, coffee, red wine and blackcurrant. Smoking can also stain teeth.
To arrest this effect ask about our Boutique Whitening kits. You will get professionally fitted moulds and three whitening gels for you to use at home to get the desired effect.
Professional tooth whitening is the safest and most effective method of lightening the colour of your dentition. Your dentist requires to assess your teeth in the first instance to ensure you are suitable for treatment. If you have any decayed teeth or broken fillings then these will have to be fixed before you can safely commence the tooth whitening process.
Impressions will be taken of your upper and lower teeth and custom made whitening trays will be made by our technician based on these. You will be given an appointment to have these fitted and at this appointment you will receive your home whitening kit and instructions for use.
The kit contains 4 syringes of whitening gel which will allow you to achieve your desired degree of whitening. The whitening trays are most commonly worn overnight and should be removed and gently cleaned with luke warm to cool water in the morning.
