As one of the most popular cosmetic dental treatments chosen by patients all over the UK, teeth whitening can eliminate staining or discolouration and can brighten teeth that have dulled over time.
At St. Michael’s Dental Care, we offer a range of teeth whitening treatments which you can carry out at home or we can perform in the practice. Whatever treatment you choose, you will enjoy brighter, whiter teeth and be able to smile with confidence.
Teeth whitening treatment is completely safe and pain free. Advanced whitening formulations have been developed to reduce sensitivity issues and enhance your natural tooth colouring by up to several shades.
While it is difficult to predict the exact shade your teeth will lighten to, our dentists will ensure you are happy with the results and offer maintenance treatments to keep your smile bright.
Why do teeth change colour?
There are many reasons that your enamel can become dull or stained, these include:
With our range of whitening treatments, you can eliminate staining or simply boost your smile. Our team will discuss the most suitable whitening treatment for your teeth.
Enlighten’s Evolution™ system can brighten teeth by up to ten shades, in as little as 14 days. It is a leading combination whitening treatment.
With Enlighten’s Evolution™, we work in partnership with you to brighten your teeth. You carry out the first stage of treatment at home by wearing custom made trays filled with whitening serum over 14 days.
Once this period has ended, you come to visit our comfortable and relaxed practice so we can carry out a final in-chair whitening treatment.
Enlighten’s Evolution™ system is completely safe and achieves proven results. To offset any sensitivity, we can also provide special swabs to protect your teeth and gums during and after treatment.
Results can last indefinitely and you can make the most of your brighter teeth by wearing the serum-filled trays overnight once a month.
Whitening your teeth at home is an effective and easy way to achieve a confident, bright smile and at St. Michael’s Dental Care we offer home-based tray teeth whitening systems.
When you attend our practice for a whitening consultation, we will take impressions of your teeth so that our laboratory can build your whitening trays.
Once these trays have been built, you’re ready to start your whitening treatment. We will show you how to fill the trays with the whitening serum and answer any of your questions.
Typically, you will need to wear the trays for an allotted amount of time. You will need to repeat this process daily depending on the length of your treatment.
Home-whitening kits achieve excellent results and are perfectly safe to use. Speak to your dentist about which whitening treatment is right for you.
The home-based whitening treatment Oral B Whitestrips 3D White, produces excellent results in as little 14 days.
Teeth are brightened and whitened for up to 12 months with this easy to use home kit. Your St. Michael’s Dental Care dentist will explain how to use the whitening system and answer all your questions so you can use the kit with confidence.
Each kit contains a number of special strips which have been coated in a whitening gel. These are applied directly to the teeth and removed after 30-60 minutes. The strips are flexible so they fit the shape of your teeth and are comfortable to wear. Once the allotted time is over, simply remove the strip, rinse your mouth and carry on with the rest of your day.
The product manufacturers recommend a course of 14 days to achieve noticeable results, however our dentist will discuss the most suitable length of treatment for you.
Dentist-supervised whitening treatment Phillips Zoom WhitespeedTM is fast, effective and enhances the shade of your teeth by up to several shades.
We recommend visiting St. Michael’s Dental Care at least three times to experience the full results of this light-activated whitening system.
The treatment includes a thorough clean of your teeth and custom-made whitening trays to fit your teeth. Your dentist will protect your gums from the whitening solution before starting the procedure. They will then fill the trays with the whitening serum and place them over your teeth. The light is then used to activate the whitening treatment.
While many people notice a difference after just one visit, a minimum of three visits are recommended to achieve long lasting, noticeable results. We also offer Zoom whitening home kits to preserve your new brighter, whiter smile.
