The first thing most people notice about you is your smile, so if your teeth are discoloured it makes you self-conscious.
Maybe you have a special event coming up, but in any case, there’s usually no better time than now to do something about discoloured teeth.
Tooth whitening is very simple, safe, quick and effective. In one visit to Ashurst Dental Practice you can come out with teeth several shades whiter than when you walked in, or you can opt to do it yourself using our take-home kit with trays customised to fit your teeth.
We use the incredibly popular Zoom brand of tooth whitening because it’s safe and well proven. Professional strength Zoom whitening is only available at your dentist. As with all whitening products, individual results will vary, depending on the natural tooth colour and the nature of the staining.
In-surgery whitening takes up to two hours, after which your teeth will be several shades lighter – job done! You just relax in a comfortable dental chair while the hydrogen peroxide goes to work, aided by a special light. You will also be given two top-up whitening trays to take home.
For home whitening we use Boutique whitening products, which are great, especially for those who have sensitive teeth, as they have integrated an active agent to reduce sensitivity. At-home tooth whitening works more slowly but after several days is just as effective as in-surgery whitening. In this case there is the option of trays that can be worn for a short time each day or overnight. Top-up trays can also be purchased from us as needed.
If you think now is the time to do something about your discoloured teeth, or if you think tooth whitening will make a difference to your enjoyment of an upcoming event, give us a call or pop in and talk to us. We will be very happy to advise you on what is the best treatment for you.
