Cosmetic Dentistry » Teeth Whitening
Teeth whitening treatment is one of the most popular cosmetic dental procedures in the UK. It's a simple, fast and effective way to boost the appearance of your smile, and can be carried out at home under the supervision of your dentist.
Treatment typically takes just two weeks, which means it's the perfect way to add extra sparkle to your smile before a special occasion. The most important thing to remember if you are considering teeth whitening is that it should only be carried out under the supervision of a dentist, who will use the highest-quality, tried and tested products.
While many products that claim to whiten teeth are available on the high street and the internet, these will be of inferior quality. In the best case scenario they won't work; in the worst cases they can actually damage your teeth. Teeth whitening, like all cosmetic dental procedures, should only be carried out on healthy teeth. At Castle Lane Dental Care we use the popular Enlighten and Enigma Illumine teeth whitening systems. These have been tried and tested by dentists, with many happy patients. It is a safe and effective procedure.
If you are interested in teeth whitening treatment with us, we will see you for an initial consultation. Your dentist will check your teeth and gums are in healthy condition and, so long as there are no problems, you will be measured for teeth whitening trays. These are custom-made to fit each individual patient's mouth exactly. When the trays are ready you will be called in for a second appointment, where we'll check that they fit comfortably and will show you how to use them.
You put a small amount of whitening gel in the trays and wear them overnight for about two weeks. The gel gently removes even deep staining, leaving you with a brighter, whiter smile.
This is a minimally-invasive procedure that produces fantastic results. To find out more about teeth whitening treatment, please contact the practice today.
