Tooth Whitening

What is tooth whitening?

Tooth whitening offers a quick and simple way to improve your smile by giving your teeth a natural, healthy and brighter appearance. Tooth whitening can improve the colour of the teeth. There are different types of tooth whitening – those that can be done in the comfort of your own home and those which are performed in dental practice. At Crown Bank Dental we provide you with a take home bespoke tooth whitening kit that give you total control over your smile. Scientific evidence suggests that at home tooth whitening gives the best and most long lasting results.

How long does the procedure take?

Tooth whitening involves at least two appointments. At the first appointment a mould will be taken of your teeth. At the second appointment the bleaching tray (which resembles a clear mouth guard) will be checked for fit. At this appointment you will be provided with the dental whitening kit and instructions for at home bleaching. Tooth whitening can give significant improvements for a brighter, whiter smile in just 14 days.

What are the alternative options?

A visit to the hygienist may be able to remove some of the discolouration from your teeth; however, it will not remove the effects of tea, coffee, smoking and ageing which are some of the primary causes of darker teeth.¬†When used in combination with orthodontic appliances, veneers, crowns or white filling materials, tooth whitening can improve the overall appearance of your smile. A combination of these techniques are referred to as “smile design.”
