What Is Teeth Whitening?
Teeth whitening or tooth bleaching is the process of enhancing the appearance and colour of your teeth. Before starting a whitening treatment, it is important for a dentist to examine your mouth to advise whether the whitening process is right for you.
There are two options of whitening available at our Maven practices;
Custom-made take-home teeth whitening kits
In-chair teeth whitening treatments.
Your dentist or hygienist will be able to recommend the best option to suit you.
Results may vary depending upon the original shade and condition of your teeth, but most people notice visible improvements shortly after treatment.
Take-Home Teeth Whitening
Take-home whitening treatments allow you to brighten the shade of your teeth in the comfort of your own home. Before you get started, book a teeth whitening consultation with your Natural Dentistry dentist to discuss your suitability and how the treatment can help you reach your smile goals. In your consultation a dentist will take impressions of your teeth for custom-made trays and book you in for a follow up appointment to pick up your custom whitening kit.
Your take home whitening kit will include two new custom-made trays (1 complete set with upper and lower teeth), syringes of dental grade whitening gel and easy-to-follow instructions.
We will advise you how often to repeat your at-home whitening sessions with the snug fit design of your custom-made tray and dentist quality whitening gel to achieve the level of whitening you desire.
In Chair Teeth Whitening
In-chair whitening is a professional whitening procedure that is the fastest and most effective way to brighten your teeth and is carried out in the dental practice. In-chair whitening is the best option if you’re after almost 'instant' results and usually takes around 1-2 hours to complete.
If you’re ready for a brighter, whiter smile simply book a pre-whitening consultation us to check your suitability for a whitening treatment and to prescribe the most suitable method for you and the level of ‘whiteness’ you desire. During the consultation, we will examine your mouth and identify any treatment that may need to be done prior to proceeding with whitening treatment.
The treatment involves the application of dental grade whitening gel to the teeth before it is activated by a special LED light.
