Stains and yellowing of natural teeth
Teeth stain and darken naturally over time. This can make you feel less confident about your smile. Regular consumption of tea, coffee, wine and smoking can cause your teeth to become much darker.
We offer 2 whitening treatment options to remove stains and discoloration of teeth associated with aging and give your teeth a whiter appearance. With lasting effect, teeth whitening can make your smile look brighter and younger.
Option 1: Home whitening
Home whitening uses a custom made, plastic mouth-guard like tray to whiten your teeth. They are made specifically for each individual by our technicians and are designed to hold a teeth whitening gel against your teeth for a duration of time.
These trays are worn overnight using special teeth whitening gels for a 2 week initial period. It is normal to experience teeth sensitivity as part of your whitening treatment.
Home whitening happen over a longer period of time compared to surgery based teeth whitening but the investment is lower and you have the option of ”topping up” with additional whitening gel in the future.
Option 2: In-office whitening
Zoom by Philips is an an example for an in office based whitening system. Typically they use a special light activated gel that offers you great results in under one hour.
Our dentist will apply a whitening gel to your teeth and a teeth whitening light will be placed over your teeth. During this time, you can relax and watch TV in our treatment room while your dentist monitors your treatment. The concentration of whitening gel is stronger than the at home whitening option so it is normal to experience more sensitivity.
