Brightening your smile requires no invasive treatment and is a favoured option for a cosmetic smile improvement.
At DentalKind we only use the most predictable and safe teeth whitening products so that you get the best results. All we need to do is ensure your teeth and gums are perfectly healthy before we start treatment.
Initially we need to ensure you are dentally fit and well. This will involve a thorough dental examination, with x-rays if necessary.
The process involves your dentist taking moulds of your teeth. These are sent to a dental laboratory that then make specially designed customized whitening trays.
We will then take a baseline shade of your teeth and photos to compare before and after.
You will then be instructed how to whiten your teeth safely and we can review you after you are happy with your new smile.
There can be some sensitivity during treatment, which is reversible and easily managed – we will help give you hints and tips that have worked well with all our patients.
How old do I have to be to have my teeth whitened?
18 years and above.
Will my fillings / crowns / veneers change colour?
No, only the tooth structure will lighten so any visible restorations may need replacing.
How white will my teeth get?
Most patients will see a noticeable improvement with our Boutique Whitening. As the process is very safe you can go even brighter if you continue to whiten by purchasing additional gels. With Enlighten whitening you get a guaranteed ‘B1’ shade result and this is considered the brightest colour on the natural shade scale.
Will it damage my teeth?
Not at all. The procedure is evidence based, had a long history of success and predictable. Most dental professionals regularly whiten their own teeth!
How long does it last for?
The whitening effect can last 2-5 years depending on habits and lifestyle. Many patients choose to buy top-up gels at check-ups to maintain the whitening effect.
What is the difference between teeth whitening provided by a dentist over the internet/shop bought ones?
Shop bought whitening treatments should only contain 0.1% of hydrogen peroxide; it is illegal & dangerous to sell any kits with a higher percentage. With professional whitening treatments we can provide up to 6% of hydrogen peroxide. With internet products you do not know where they are made, how they are made, what they contain or any idea of safety – we strongly discourage any internet products due to safety concerns.
