Get the whiter teeth you really want – and undo the damage caused by drinking, smoking and enjoying your daily cuppa. Our advanced home whitening kits use a bleaching process to remove stains and discoloration and give your teeth a cleaner, whiter look for up to many years with occasional, easy and inexpensive top ups to maintain your pearly white colour. It’s a great way to roll back the years by freshening-up your smile!
We use two thin, custom-made plastic trays which hold a special gel to help you whiten your teeth at home. We make both trays, for top and bottom teeth, at our surgery in Northampton after making a model of your teeth. We then check the trays to ensure a perfect fit and give you clear and easy to follow instructions of how to use the whitening system.
Easy! All you need to do is wear a thin, custom made, gel-filled tray around your teeth for overnight, usually between seven and fourteen separate sessions. It's an inexpensive whitening option that can be provided by us at East Park Dental and that can be done at your own pace.
No, crowns and fillings will not change colour with whitening. You’d need to have these replaced after whitening to match the new colour.
On average, your teeth would stay whiter for around 2-3 years, depending on your lifestyle. If you’re a smoker, you’d expect your teeth to stain again more quickly. However it’s easy and inexpensive to top-up using your existing trays and additional whitening gel treatments – and these are available from us at East Park Dental.
It is illegal for anyone without a dental qualification and appropriate training to offer teeth whitening services. This is because they are not able to check that the teeth are healthy and suitable for whitening, which can increase the risk of permanent damage.
Only dentists are able to prescribe stronger and more powerful whitening gel. This gives far more effective results with over the counter whitening kits often making little or no difference – and so it’s worth making an appointment to have a dentist supervise your care.
Evidence shows that whitening treatments have a very high success rate, so it’s very rare that it won’t work.
