Whitening will lighten the shade of your teeth, without removing any of the tooth surface.
Teeth Whitening Trays and Gels
Your dentist can provide you with teeth whitening trays and gels that can be worn at home.
Your dentist will take an impression of your mouth and give this to a dental technician, who will build a bespoke tray to the exact measurements of your mouth. Your dentist will check that the tray fits and demonstrate how to carry out the procedure at home.
The tray fits closely around the teeth, and is filled with the gel.
How long will the effects last?
This depends on your individual circumstances. If you are a smoker or drink lots of stainable liquids (such as tea and coffee), it is not likely to last as long.
Will whitening work on artificial teeth?
No. Tooth coloured fillings, crowns, bridges and veneers will not lighten when your teeth are bleached.
