Tooth Whitening

Home teeth Whitening in Chessington Surrey

Home Whitening

Tooth whitening is one of the most popular cosmetic dental treatments, currently available on the dental market. It both lightens and brightens the teeth to produce a healthier, more attractive smile. Designed to improve the aesthetics of the teeth by removing surface stains, teeth whitening lightens the colour without interfering with the tooth structure. We offer a home whitening kit rather than treatments that are carried out in the surgery.

What does the procedure involve?

There is no pain, but some people may be prone to sensitivity. Teeth whitening procedures are known for their quick and effective results.

  • An impression of your teeth is taken by your dentist
  • At your second appointment you will receive a perfectly formed tray for you to take home with your own home whitening kit
  • You will be advised on how to use the kit

How long does whitening take?

The home whitening procedure can take from a few days to weeks. Your dentist will be able to talk to you about treatment times and explain how the procedure works and what it entails.

Is tooth whitening effective?

When carried out by a trained, qualified dentist whitening is usually very effective. Over time, the colour of the teeth will start to fade and you may wish to have repeat treatment after around five years.

Can tooth whitening fail?

Whitening only enhances the existing shade of the tooth and cannot change the actual colour of the tooth. If you want to do this, you may wish to consider veneers. As with natural teeth, the whiteness of the teeth fades over time and your teeth may become discoloured, especially if you smoke or are a keen coffee and red wine drinker. Whitening can only be used for natural teeth and cannot be used on false teeth.

How should I care for my teeth after whitening?

Your dental practitioner will advise you on how to look after your teeth after whitening them. It is important to brush twice a day, floss and attend regular dental visits. To preserve the whiteness of your teeth, avoid smoking, drinking red wine, coffee and tea on a regular basis. Sometimes whitening can cause temporary sensitivity. Your dentist will advise you which products to use to combat tooth sensitivity.
