Teeth Whitening

Whitening your teeth can transform your smile and boost your confidence

A nice bright, healthy-looking smile can take years off your appearance and really boost your confidence. Teeth whitening offers an affordable and speedy way to achieve this, it is a safe and relatively painless procedure ideal for most patients.

As you age teeth often become darker due to changes in the mineral of the tooth and thinning of the enamel. Teeth can also become stained by dietary habits, such as drinking coffee, tea, or red wine. Tooth whitening lightens teeth and helps to remove stains and discoloration.

At the Chigwell Dental Practice, we use the best and safest materials available to help brighten your smile. We offer two types of whitening systems at the surgery:

We first take an impression of your mouth to create customized clear trays for you to wear. When your trays are ready for collection you come back for fitting and are also given the whitening gel. We will show you how to apply the special bleaching gel to the trays.

The whitening gel trays should be worn for a certain amount of time either during the day or at night. During your consultation, we will advise you when and for how long to wear the trays.

At the end of this period, you will see maximum whitening results. Occasional top-up treatment can be used at your convenience to maintain your new smile.
