This is a non-invasive dental treatment that lifts stains from the pores of teeth and lightens the colour of your natural tooth enamel, making your teeth look brighter and whiter.
Take-home whitening starts with the creation of a mouth tray that we customise to fit your mouth comfortably. You then take this mouth tray home and add the whitening product during a whitening session. We will give you detailed instructions to tell you how long and how often to use the product.
This is a cost-effective solution for people wanting whiter and brighter teeth. It can help if you suffer from yellow or brown stains on your teeth, which can be caused by smoking or the consumption of coffee, tea, wine, cola and some foods. It can also help if you have experienced wear to the outer enamel layer of your teeth.
You can expect good results from take-home teeth whitening but, of course, this relies on patients following the instructions when they get home.
Please note the following further considerations:
- Teeth whitening is not recommended for pregnant or breastfeeding women.
- It is not permanent and the degree of whiteness will vary from individual to individual depending on the condition of your teeth and the type of whitening system used.
- It will only work on natural teeth and extrinsic stains. It will not work on restorations e.g. fillings and crowns.
The initial appointment with our dentist will confirm your suitability. Contact us to make a booking.
