Teeth Whitening

Teeth whitening has become a popular dental treatment thanks to movie stars, pop stars, and even footballers, who have inspired us all to want the perfect smile. In fact, over the last 5 years the number of teeth whitening procedures has increased by an incredible 300 percent. There's never been a larger variety of teeth whitening products available, so if you're considering teeth whitening, we can help you find the right method.

Before choosing a teeth whitening procedure, we highly recommend that you speak to us for expert advice, so that we can diagnose the cause of your lacklustre smile before recommending the appropriate type of teeth whitening. Once the cause of your tooth staining is confirmed, we can prescribe the appropriate teeth whitening product.

There are two types of teeth whitening techniques: vital and non-vital. Vital bleaching is used when the tooth discoloration is confined exclusively to the enamel. However, it can cause tooth hypersensitivity and gum irritation. Both reactions are purely temporary and will settle down shortly after the whitening process has been completed.

Non-vital teeth whiteners are used for discoloured teeth that have been treated with a root canal. This dental treatment is known as "inside/outside whitening" because the hydrogen peroxide formulation is placed inside the tooth between appointments and whitens the tooth from the inside out.

As you can imagine, tooth whitening is not a one-size-fits-all treatment as each and every patient is different. There are so many teeth whitening products available that you need to talk to us first to find out which will be right for you. We will also examine your teeth thoroughly to make sure they are healthy enough to undergo the tooth whitening process.

Teeth whitening dental products can be divided into several categories:  

1.  Home base teeth whitening
2.  Home and surgery power teeth whitening
3.  Inside/outside teeth whitening for non vital (root treated) teeth

We use the Enlighten teeth whitening system at the practice for home and surgery power whitening.
