Teeth Whitening in Edinburgh

Brighter, Whiter Smiles in Edinburgh

If you are unhappy with the colour of your teeth and would like them to be brighter, tooth whitening (or dental bleaching) is the ideal way to improve them. Tooth whitening is a safe and reputable treatment when it is carried out by dental professionals. It can improve the appearance of teeth so much that more extensive treatment can be avoided, perhaps with bonding to minor chips or misshaped teeth. We also recommend whitening before veneer or crown treatment as it makes the end result better.

We offer two different types of tooth whitening:

 

Home whitening – for this treatment we first check the colour of your teeth to begin with and take a photo for a record. Next we make you some custom made thin trays (like extra thin gum-shields) which fit very accurately over your teeth. These are worn overnight or for 2-3 hours in the evening. Usually we get a good result after 3-4 weeks with this method. It takes time but the result will be good and your teeth should stay bright for up to 2 years after whitening.

 

Enlighten whitening – Enlighten tooth whitening is a system that guarantees your teeth will brighten to shade B1- the whitest shade on the regular shade guide, and they can go brighter than this. For 95% of people the treatment only takes 2 weeks.

 

The treatment involves:

  • Protecting your teeth against sensitivity
  • Using Enlighten serum instead of your usual toothpaste
  • Treating your teeth for sensitivity in the surgery
  • Evo-Seal Sensitivity gel is provided for you to use on any teeth that may still be sensitive
  • Next, wearing extra accurate sealed trays every night for 2 weeks with the gel increasing in strength from week 1 to week 2
  • This is followed by a one hour appointment for in-surgery bleaching
