Enamel can become discoloured over time. Whitening your teeth removes stains, giving you a whiter, brighter smile.
Tooth whitening requires two appointments, approximately two weeks apart. At the first visit your dentist will assess your teeth and highlight any restorations that could need replacing, as these will not whiten like your natural teeth. Impressions will be taken and sent to our laboratory to have trays made specifically for you. At the second appointment we will fit your trays, and show you how to use the whitening gels. A relatively common side effect of tooth whitening is sensitivity. It is usually temporary and will stop once you've completed the whitening process.
Tooth whitening lasts from six months to two years. You can touch-up your smile with a whitening gel as and when you feel necessary.
