Tooth colour can darken as we get older and is also affected by food and drinks like tea, coffee, red wine and smoking. Whitening can be a really effective way to lighten your teeth without damaging any of the tooth surface.
There are various different treatments available and the active ingredient is usually hydrogen or carbamide peroxide. It lifts off stains from the enamel and only works on natural teeth.
At Earley Dental Centre we offer a home whitening system. We make custom tooth whitening trays and you wear these trays for around 10-14 days to achieve optimum results. We elected not to use Lights or so called Laser whitening since the outcome is generally much poorer than tray whitening, which is recognised as the gold standard. Tray based whitening is very safe and also less expensive than in surgery techniques using lights.BOOK AN APPOINTMENT
