Bleaching & Whitening
Does it hurt?
Studies have shown that the treatment in no way damages the structure of your teeth. A small percentage of people can experience some sensitivity for a short time which then resolves.
Treatment can be expected to last up to 2 years assuming good oral hygiene and reasonable exposure to staining drinks and foodstuffs. It is best to avoid smoking to ensure the results are long lasting.
What does the treatment involve?
A pre treatment assessment is carried out to insure your teeth and oral tissues are healthy. Impressions are taken to allow bleaching trays to be fabricated. Once fabricated the bleaching kit with bleaching trays is delivered to patient.
Bleaching trays normally need to be worn 3 hours at night for 2-3 weeks to obtain a good result.
