There’s no question that tooth whitening has become one of our most popular cosmetic treatments at Albion Dental. Spurred on by a host of media celebrities with beautiful white and glamorous smiles, people of all ages are looking for ways to lighten their teeth and do away with years of staining caused by the likes of tea, coffee, red wine and especially smoking.
As tooth whitening is not appropriate for every patient we always start with a whitening consultation to make sure you are suitable for treatment. An accurate impression of your teeth is then taken which is used to produce custom-made trays that fit over your teeth, similar to a gum shield. These ‘bleaching trays’ are filled with a whitening gel and worn every night (or during the day if you prefer) for two weeks - effectively whitening your teeth as you sleep. After two weeks the final step of the whitening process is a one-hour deep bleaching treatment at our practice.
The Enlighten tooth whitening system is the only system on the market to guarantee any patient will whiten to at least B1 (which is very white!), regardless of their starting shade, age, lifestyle or dietary habits. Professional tooth whitening is very safe and it’s very rare that patients suffer any pain or sensitivity and you can eat and drink what you like during treatment.
So if you want to rejuvenate your smile for a younger and healthier appearance talk to us today to arrange a consultation and find out how tooth whitening can benefit you.
