Teeth whitening is acknowledged to be the most affordable and accessible way to a bright new smile. It's fast acting too!
Where your teeth are naturally darker or perhaps have become stained through years of smoking cigarettes or consuming foods and drinks such as red wine and curry, then we can help with a painless, rapid teeth whitening treatment to help get your smile back on track.
Here at Hughes and Owen Dental Care we are pleased to offer the popular and effective 'Boutique Whitening' system which is designed to be used in the comfort of your own home.
There are two versions of the system - 'By Day' and 'By Night' which give you a choice of method, either wearing your whitening trays during the day (typically just one hour) or overnight. The choice is yours and we will discuss the different options with you during your personalised consultation.
What are personalised whitening trays?
What is the bleaching agent?
We use a special bleaching gel to whiten your teeth safely and quickly. This is called 'carbamide peroxide' which lightens the outer and inner parts of your teeth. You can expect your teeth to be up to eight shades whiter by the end of the treatment although we can control just how white you wish to go!
Are there any side effects?
In a tiny number of cases, patients may experience some additional tooth sensitivity during or after their treatment. However, these symptoms are usually temporary and disappear after a few days.
