Teeth Whitening Stockport
Teeth can be stained by foods, drinks, smoking and certain medications. Teeth whitening is a safe procedure that can lighten the colour of your teeth by using a safe dental bleaching agent.
Home whitening kits are available and lighten the teeth gradually. A custom tray is made to fit snugly over your teeth. The bleaching agent, in the form of a gel, is placed into the tray which can be worn for a few hours during the day, or over night. With all whitening treatment, individual results will vary and are based on your initial tooth colour and the nature of your tooth staining.This will be assessed by your dentist and they can advise.
Results are normally seen over 3-4 weeks as your teeth appear whiter and brighter.
Teeth whitening can be ‘topped up’ as and when needed, as long as you keep the trays safe! Generally the whitening results are very good but dependent on the level of staining foods/drinks/smoking in your lifestyle.
