There are many products and techniques available to help you achieve a brighter, whiter smile. Here are just some of the options available:
In-Office Teeth Whitening
During your appointment, a member of the South London Dental Care Centre team will apply a whitening agent to the surface of your teeth. The entire visit generally takes about 90 minutes and you will be able to see results immediately.
At-Home Tray Whitening
Simply place the whitening gel in your custom-fitted trays. As the peroxide in the gel breaks down, hydroxyradicals help to whiten stained teeth. Whitening generally takes ten to 14 days, although you may notice results in as little as three to five days.
There are many over-the-counter teeth whitening options, including teeth whitening strips that use a thin film of hydrogen peroxide pressed gentry across your teeth, and although they are readily available, it is wise to consult with your dentist before use.
Paint-On Teeth Whiteners
Paint-on whiteners are less expensive and less effective than whitening strips or professional options. They consist of a gel that is applied to the teeth using a small brush, which hardens into a film that coats the teeth and dissolves in the mouth.
Whitening Toothpaste and Mouthwash
The least expensive options are whitening toothpastes and mouthwashes, which work to remove surface stains using mild abrasives, but do not lighten the actual colour shade of the tooth.
