A bright, white smile can make you look good and feel great. Our patients who have experienced the tooth whitening transformation tell us the procedure helps them smile with confidence.
Our clinic provides chair side or in-office or power bleach as well as home bleaching options for the patients interested in getting a whiter shade for their teeth. Bleaching the teeth in the clinic takes about 45mins-1hr, and 1-2 sittings may be required.
Home bleach is used by the patient on a custom made tray made to fit the teeth to be used at night. Duration of the tray to be kept in the mouth is based on the strength of the bleach used.
Occasionally people experience temporary discomfort during the bleaching treatment, such as tooth sensitivity. These symptoms are transient & disappear within one to three days after completion of the treatment. Overall, tooth bleaching under professional supervision is an effective method for whitening the teeth.
The treatment is suitable for most people and is particularly successful in removing unsightly stains left by smoking, coffee and certain foods. The results will vary for each individual depending on the natural shading of your teeth and the level of discolouration and staining present prior to the procedure.
Bleaching, however, does not keep the teeth permanently white. Those who want to have a more lasting whitening result have the option of getting veneers or crowns placed for better results.
