Keeping Teeth Bright And White
Keeping our teeth their whitest is a lot harder than it sounds. With all the coffee, wine, smoking and other foods that have the ability to stain our teeth on a daily basis, even proper maintenance sometimes leaves them a little lacklustre.
Teeth whitening is an excellent way to restore the natural colour of your teeth or even make them whiter than your natural colour if you would like.
2 Professional Methods To Whitening Your Teeth
- We utilise a tray whitening system. This tray whitening system is completed in 2 steps. The first step is to make an impression of your teeth. With this impression, we’ll craft you custom whitening trays that you can use over and over. Finally, you will take the whitening gel and put it in the tray for a short period of time (30min) over a period of a few days. This often results in a whiter smile of 4 – 8 shades!
- In-office bleaching: This will be done at the surgery. The procedure will take 1hour. Following teeth cleaning, a strong bleaching gel is applied to each tooth & activated with a strong light. The process is repeated several times. This way you have your white smile immediately.
How long will my teeth stay white after the whitening treatment?
That will depend on:
- Your Daily Dental Hygiene; And
- Your Daily Foods And Drinks.
If you drink a lot of coffee or red wine, for instance, or regularly eat strongly pigmented foods like blueberries, they will stain your teeth more quickly. However, if you brush your teeth well after each meal or snack, and floss daily, your changes of keeping your teeth white are much higher.
