Tooth Whitening

teeth-whiteningTooth whitening can be a very effective method by which the natural shade of your teeth are lightened without causing damage to the tooth structure itself. Your dental team will be able to tell you if the treatment is right for you, and will supervise it. At 15 The Pantiles Dental Practice, we provide an at-home tooth whitening system which involves taking impressions of your teeth to create custom fitted whitening trays. These are worn at home, usually at night, for approximately 2-3 weeks, or until you are satisfied with the shade of your teeth. This allows you to fit the whitening around your own schedule. The darker your teeth, the longer your teeth will take to get lighter, but your dentist will be able to advise you on the expected time frame.

Some people may find that their teeth become sensitive during treatment. Others may have discomfort in the gums, a sore throat or white patches on the gum line. These symptoms are usually temporary and should disappear within a few days of the treatment finishing. If you experience any sensitivity stop bleaching your teeth for a few days. It is advisable when whitening your teeth to use a sensitive toothpaste to help protect your teeth and reduce any discomfort.

The tooth whitening gel also has an indirect effect on the gums in that it can help them to heal and also improves their general health. Your smile will appear much brighter following tooth whitening and this can help to improve confidence and self-esteem. The effects of tooth whitening can last for up to 3 years, but this depends on your diet, whether you smoke and how well your teeth are cleaned.

Remember tooth whitening should only be carried out by a registered dental professional. For more details please go to the GDC website
