Whether you have a special occasion coming up, perhaps a holiday or wedding or it may be that you just want to brighten your smile, teeth whitening may be a good solution for you. Teeth whitening can whiten your teeth by several shades, however results vary from person to person.
At Andrew Scott Dental Care we prefer to use at home whitening kits where you wear whitening trays at night for two weeks. The trays are thin, comfortable and custom made fit your teeth precisely. Results can last indefinitely with good oral hygiene and some very simple maintenance. Wearing the trays for 1 night every other month will also prolong results.
It is worth noting that teeth whitening will not lighten crowns, veneers or fillings and your dentist will assess your dental health before proceeding with this treatment to ensure that you are dentally fit. This treatment can give you some sensitivity however this should settle down by using a sensitive toothpaste or tooth serum.
Teeth whitening is a form of dentistry and should only be carried out by a dentist or another regulated dental professional, such as a dental hygienist or dental therapist, on the prescription of a dentist. Whilst some beauty salons offer teeth whitening this activity is illegal if there’s no dental professional present, and it may put your oral health at risk.
You can spread the cost of your treatment using a budget plan or 0% patient finance. Terms and Conditions apply.
