Your teeth get darker over time as result of many factors including consuming beverages such as coffee and tea. Sometimes, this means that you no longer smile as confidently as you used to. You might find yourself smiling without showing your teeth without even realising it.
If you are self-conscious about the shade of your teeth and you have an important occasion coming up such as a wedding or job interview, professional teeth whitening treatment is a safe and highly recommended option for you to consider. You can even have this treatment just to give yourself a boost in confidence. Here is how teeth whitening works.
- Your teeth will be assessed to check the type of staining you have
- Impressions of your teeth are taken
- A custom tray is made to fit snugly over your teeth
- Photographs of your teeth are taken, so that you can see the difference after the whitening process
The teeth whitening process is achieved using a whitening gel. This is inserted into the custom made trays. These are worn overnight or for at least two hours during the day. The results are seen after daily use for about two weeks, when your teeth will be brighter and whiter.
With all whitening treatment, individual results will vary and are dependent on your initial tooth colour and the nature of your tooth staining. The dentist will advise you on what to expect and what the likely outcome will be for you.
