Your Stafford Street Dental & Implant Clinic dentist will check the colour of your teeth to begin with and take a photo for a record. Next your dentist 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 this method achieves a good result after 3-4 weeks.
Once you have completed the course of home whitening you can keep the whitening tray and help keep your teeth stain free and white by topping up once or twice a month or as required.
How long will the treatment last?
How long your teeth stay whiter and brighter after treatment is down to you, but your teeth should stay bright for up to two years. Stay away from stain-culprits and keep up a good oral health routine and the effects of your whitening treatment should last up to three years.
