revitalising the natural look of teeth without removing or reducing healthy enamel.
Teeth can over time discolour mainly due to a natural intrinsic process, but also due to extrinsic factors such as tea staining and smoking.
We provide two whitening services, both of which include a pre-treatment assessment. Home whitening involves taking impressions of the teeth and making study models from which custom fitting whitening trays are made. The pre-treatment shade is recorded and clinical photographs taken. These trays are then fitted and a home whitening kit is used to gently whiten the teeth in the comfort of your home. The process takes between 1 to 2 weeks, and it is important not to eat or drink anything which could potentially stain the teeth during this phase.
Zoom is a whitening process which is performed in the chair and can achieve a brighter result in just an hour. The teeth are carefully isolated and 4 applications of the whitening agent are applied to the teeth. A bright blue light then accelerates the whitening process. For best results a combination of home and Zoom whitening is recommended with an additional 7 days of home whitening which is included in the Zoom! in chair procedure. Click here for more information
