Professional teeth whitening can remove stains, brighten your smile and boost your self-confidence. Here, our dentists explain how the professional teeth whitening process works here at Guildford Dental in Surrey.
Our teeth will naturally darken as we age, but a number of different foods and beverages can also stain and discolour teeth. Teeth whitening is a non-invasive dental treatment that can quickly and effectively restore brilliance to your smile.
Professional Teeth Whitening
At Guildford Dental our dental professionals offer our patients custom teeth whitening systems to help remove stains and whiten teeth.
Our professional tooth whitening treatment requires two visits to our Surrey dental office.
At your first appointment, impressions (molds) will be made of your teeth in order to create clear custom whitening trays that fit your teeth precisely.
When you return to our dental office for your second appointment, you will be provided with your custom whitening trays along with whitening solution, and full instructions on how to use the professional teeth whitening treatment in the comfort of your own home.
Your whitening trays will be worn along with the special whitening solution. The trays are both lightweight and comfortable to wear.
Your dentist will provide you with specific instructions for your whitening, however typically patients wear the trays with the whitening solution either twice a day for 30 minutes or overnight for a couple of weeks depending on the degree of staining and desired level of whitening.
Treatment will take 10-14 days to achieve the desired level of whiteness. If you are unsure how white is white enough visit your Surrey dentist for advice.
Hang on to your whitening trays after you have completed your treatment. That way, when it's time for a touch-up you will be able to reuse your trays, just contact our office for more of the whitening solution.
Note: It is normal to experience tooth sensitivity during the time you are whitening your teeth, but it will subside shortly after you have completed your treatment.
