Tooth Whitening

Before we delve into the world of tooth whitening, let’s first understand why teeth discolour. Several factors contribute to tooth discoloration, including diet, tobacco use, poor oral hygiene, aging, and genetics.

Now, let’s explore the benefits of tooth whitening:

  1. Enhanced Confidence: A brighter smile can boost your self-esteem and make you feel more confident in social and professional settings. Additionally, whiter teeth are often associated with youth and vitality, helping you achieve a more youthful appearance.
  2. Improved Oral Health: Teeth whitening procedures typically involve thorough cleaning, which can contribute to better oral hygiene habits. Plus, the process is fast and gentle, providing swift results without discomfort.

Moving on to take-home teeth whitening:

Take-home whitening offers numerous benefits, including convenience, customization, gradual whitening, and professional guidance. With custom-fitted trays and professional-grade whitening solution, you can achieve consistent results from the comfort of your home, all while receiving guidance from our dental professionals.

Here’s how the process works at Larkham House Dental Practice:

  1. Consultation: Schedule a consultation with one of our dental professionals to determine if take-home whitening is right for you. We’ll assess your oral health and discuss your goals for whitening.
  2. Custom-Fitted Trays: If deemed suitable, we’ll create custom-fitted trays to ensure even distribution of the whitening gel for optimal results.
  3. Whitening Solution: You’ll receive professional-grade whitening solution and detailed instructions on how to apply it to the trays. Wear the trays for a specified time each day, based on your preference and the gel concentration.
  4. Monitoring Progress: We’ll track your progress and make adjustments as needed to safely achieve your desired level of whitening.
  5. Maintenance: Once you’ve achieved your desired results, we’ll provide guidance on how to maintain your bright smile for the long term.

After undergoing teeth whitening treatment, it’s essential to maintain good oral hygiene habits and avoid staining foods and drinks to preserve your results. Additionally, regular dental check-ups and hygienist appointments can help keep your smile bright and healthy.
