How quickly will my teeth get whitened?
This varies between individuals but you will start to notice a change after only a few sessions.
Which system is better day or night white?
Both can achieve equally good results and is often down to individual preference
Can all my teeth be whitened using these techniques?
Only natural tooth material is lightened.
Whitening products will have no affect on crowns, veneers or fillings but these can be replaced with a lighter shade at a later date.
How can I top up my whitening in the future?
Your whitening trays are precision made to fit your mouth only and can be used many times. The tooth whitening gel is a prescription only product available from dental professionals.
Tooth whitening is a safe and predictable way to greatly improve the appearance of your smile without any damage to tooth structure.
Using whitening trays your teeth are exposed to oxygen from the breakdown of hydrogen peroxide gel.
At Loughborough Road we regularly use two alternative systems.
Carbamine peroxide slowly releases oxygen over 6-8 hours and is used for overnight whitening.
Hydrogen peroxide gel products release their oxygen over a much shorter time and are suitable for wear during the day.
Your whitening trays can be kept and reused for many years as long as you’re mouth or teeth do not change
Gentle tooth whitening can be a safe and effective procedure only when supervised by a suitably qualified dental professional.
Never be tempted to use whitening products other than those supplied to you by your dentist, who will ensure you are using the most suitable system.
Your first whitening session will be at the practice to demonstrate the technique and for observation of any adverse reaction or sensitivity.
