Tooth whitening at Orpington Dental Care
As mentioned earlier, tooth whitening treatment is an option for individuals who feel as though their teeth have become discoloured due to a number of reasons. This can leave an individual feeling uncomfortable to show their teeth in fear that the discolouration of their teeth will be noticed. At Orpington Dental Care we offer dental treatments that help to restore a patient’s teeth to a shade of white that will leave individuals smiling again.
The types of tooth whitening treatment available
Orpington Dental Care offers two types of tooth whitening treatments for our patients to choose from: power whitening and home whitening.
Our power whitening treatment is carried out by one of our dentists. For this procedure, our dentist firstly applies a protective barrier onto your gum and lips. A gel is also applied to your teeth. After this has been applied, the dentist will position a lamp over your teeth for about an hour. The lamp is an important part of the procedure as it activates the bleaching process. After this hour, your teeth should look noticeably brighter. If you decide to choose our home whitening treatment, instead of carrying out the procedure for you, we will make a plastic tray suitable for your teeth and a whitening gel in which you are expected to apply into the tray before wearing them either to bed or during the day. For this procedure, you should see results in two weeks.
