Tooth 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. We can advise upon the suitability of treatment based upon your tooth and gum condition.
At Saxon Dental Care, we recommend home whitening, which has many years evidence to support its safety and effectiveness .
What is home whitening?
Home whitening involves the dentist taking impressions (moulds) of your teeth, which are used to create custom made whitening trays designed to be very thin and to fit closely to your teeth.
A whitening gel is syringed into the trays and these are seated over your teeth for just an hour a day. The accurate fit of the trays allows for maximum contact between the whitening gel and your teeth, while minimising any of the gel contact with gum tissue and reduces any gum irritation.
Successful whitening can normally be achieved after 8-14 applications however, which will vary from one person to another.
