What’s the best teeth whitening treatment?

A bright white smile is desired by most people, so luckily there is an array of products and procedures that are easily obtainable to help you improve yours.

Professional teeth whitening from The Art of Dentistry can refresh your smile, brighten your teeth and give you a real self-confidence boost.

But not all teeth whitening treatments are effective or safe for your teeth and gums. Some people have chosen to whiten their smile with products they have bought off the internet. These products are often have very high and unsafe levels of hydrogen peroxide and can cause severe tooth sensitivity and even gum damage.

The whitening products we use at The Art of Dentistry have been extensively tested to ensure they are not only safe for your teeth and gums but can effectively whiten your smile.

There are a couple of options that we provide to whiten your smile:

  • In-office whitening
  • At-home whitening

You can choose to have your teeth whitened in our practice with a highly effective treatment which can achieve up to eight shades lighter while you relax in one of our comfortable treatment lounges.

If you’d prefer to whiten your teeth at home – in your own time and at your convenience, we also have a few options for you. However, we will need to first assess your dental health to ensure you are suitable.

You will receive customised whitening trays (which look like fine mouthguards) and receive instructions on the amount of gel to use and how long to wear your trays, which you must follow exactly. Achieving your desired smile will depend on your personal circumstances and colour of your teeth and can take up to two weeks. However some people notice a difference after only a few sessions.

Brushing twice daily with a fluoride toothpaste, cleaning between your teeth and having a regular scale and polish here at The Art of Dentistry will help to keep your teeth looking and feeling clean and healthy.
