Tooth whitening is one of our most popular cosmetic dental treatments, which is not surprising as it is a safe, effective treatment that can lighten your teeth to create a more youthful and healthy appearance. This makes it a great option for anyone who has dark or discoloured teeth or would like to boost their confidence in their smile. Many people choose to do this before a special day or a big event.
At Wigginton Dental Practice we use the Whitewash Laboratories Home Whitening System. which uses a gel containing both the active whitening ingredient (carbamide peroxide) and a desensitiser which helps to reduce sensitivity during treatment. Together with your personally fitted whitening trays this allows you to whiten your teeth at home, either by wearing the trays during the day or even while you are asleep. It generally takes a week or less to start getting noticeable results and treatment can usually be completed in between two and four weeks.
The whitening agent works by breaking down the discoloured molecules within your teeth, removing their staining effect. Whitening does not damage or weaken teeth in any way. The whitening system we use contains both potassium nitrate and fluoride which help strengthen the enamel and maintain its health throughout the process.
Once whitening is completed it is possible to “top up” the whiteness of your teeth whenever you wish simply by purchasing top-up whitening syringes from our practice and using your personal whitening trays.
