Teeth Whitening

About this Project

Tooth whitening, or bleaching, can be a very effective way of lightening the natural colour of your teeth without removing any of the tooth surface. It cannot make a complete colour change, but it may lighten the existing shade. It is unpredictable as to what colour change the teeth will achieve. The dental team will be able to tell you if you are suitable for this treatment, and if so will make you a set of thin custom moulded trays that fit your teeth accurately. You then apply the bleaching gel and wear for 45 minutes a day at home. You usually do this every day for 1-2 weeks. The ‘active ingredient' in the product we use is called hydrogen peroxide. As the active ingredient is broken down, oxygen gets into the enamel on the teeth and the tooth colour is made lighter. Tooth whitening can only lighten your existing tooth colour - and it only works on natural teeth. It will not work on any crowns, veneers, or fillings.
