Teeth Whitening (In-Surgery)
Teeth can appear dull for a number of reasons, including staining from smoking, drinking coffee and red wine, and ageing. In-surgery whitening can noticeably lighten teeth and is a convenient option for busy patients as it can be undertaken in under two hours.
- Noticeable results
- The gums and lips are protected using a rubber dam and the lightening gel is applied to the teeth.
- A special light is used to activate the chemical and speed up the process, which takes place in stages.
- At each stage, the gel is removed and the teeth cleaned so whitening can be carefully monitored.
Combination whitening uses both home whitening (with tailor-made mouth trays and gel) and an in-surgery procedure.
Help maintain your whiter teeth by avoiding food and drink that may stain and staying on top of your oral hygiene. Although the results of whitening are not permanent, mouth trays can be used at home if a top-up is necessary.
