What is Teeth Whitening?
Often teeth become stained or discoloured, this could be due to drinking excessive amounts of tea and coffee, red wine and through smoking. Teeth whitening will not enhance already filled teeth or teeth that already been crowned, however we will discuss each case and assess each case individually, helping you make the best choice. As with all tooth whitening products the achieved colour may drift with time, however your teeth will never return to their original colour shade.
What Are The Benefits?
Whitening is beneficial as the home tray system we use here at The Dentist @ Tupsley allows you to choose the shade you want in the comfort of your own home. You can also “top up” the desired effect as you have trays constructed to your mouth measurements.
The home whitening system also reduces the amount of sensitivity that some patients experience with whitening products.
How Is It Done?
We would always advise that you only whiten your teeth after you have spoken with your dentist. We will then produce a whitening tray for your mouth following impressions at the surgery in hereford. Two weeks later we would fit your trays for you to home whiten and ensure you are aware of how often to use the products and any possible side effects. Sometimes, teeth whitening isn’t appropriate for individuals to use due to poor dental health but we would advise you on the best course of action.
