Do you wish your teeth were whiter?
Teeth in its natural state can have a more yellow colour, and this can be more noticeable with our love of tea and coffee! Most of us don’t have naturally white teeth, and this can make us self-conscious and hide our smile. Thankfully, there are several options available to give that whiter brighter smile. These are comfortable and highly effective when performed in a safe environment by trained dental professionals.
Customised home whitening pack
Hand making your customised fitting whitening teeth trays allows an extremely thin and comfortable fit, and ensures that in this controlled environment, the risk of causing damage is minimised. When used nightly or worn overnight in the convenience of your home, there can be a noticeable whitening to the teeth within the first week. Patients often trial over the counter or online products that offer mouldable trays, but as the fit is not perfect, there can be damage to the tooth enamel, burns to the gum or worse develop pain. We welcome you to bring in your existing trays and whitening solutions, so we can advise if its use is effective or safe.
Zoom professional whitening
A market leader in innovation and with proven results, the Zoom whitening system has delivered incredibly efficient results and amazing smiles for our patients. In less than an hour, your teeth can lighten by up to 8 shades, all done in a controlled in-chair environment. This is a very popular option for our patients who simply do not have the time to commit to a nightly home whitening pack. The improved whitening results can then be maintained with a home top-up pack.
Teeth whitening can be an ideal option if discoloured teeth need that ‘freshen up’, whether it’s for a special function, wedding, or just something that you’ve thought about but found the options were too limiting.
For teeth that are heavily discoloured, and where we feel the options to whiten teeth won’t deliver the results that you need, we may consider porcelain veneers instead. These are wafer-thin, strong ‘shells’ that are glued and bonded to your teeth, to deliver white teeth that are incredibly realistic and mimic natural teeth.
