Research has shown that one of the first things people notice when they meet someone new is their smile. Teeth Whitening has become an accessible and relatively easy way to instantly improve appearance, create a positive first impression and achieve a more youthful and radiant appearance .
Teeth can become discoloured over a period of time. Discolouration can be caused by several factors including ageing, smoking, consumption of staining foods and beverages, staining caused by medication and hereditary factors.
Safe and effective methods of achieving a whiter, brighter smile are now readily available.
We are able to offer a range of teeth whitening options to help enhance, improve and brighten your smile:
TRAY- BASED HOME WHITENING
At Portland Road Family Dental Centre, we are also able to offer an alternative, tray-based home teeth whitening method, whereby a professional dental teeth whitening gel is used in conjunction with custom made trays. The trays containing the professional dental whitening gel are worn for several hours each day (or night), over a period of 2-4 weeks. Whilst wearing your whitening trays, your teeth are safely and gently whitened.
Research has shown that teeth whitening is perfectly safe for teeth and gums. This is because the teeth whitening procedures we use do not change the structure of the teeth; only the colour of teeth is affected.
If caffeine, red wine and cigarettes continue to be a daily fix, you can rebrighten your smile by wearing your trays for a few nights every six to nine months
