Professional tooth whitening in Preston
Many people believe that whitening treatments are damaging to tooth enamel, but when done by a dental professional, this couldn’t be further from the truth.
In fact, problems and ‘horror stories’ only occur with ‘over the counter kits’ bought in hair salons or on the internet, and when used incorrectly these treatments can cause permanent damage to your teeth and gums. In some cases these treatments can even make your natural teeth darker or sensitive, making you worse off than before you started, both clinically and financially.
When carried out under the supervision of a dentist, tooth whitening is the single least destructive and harmful cosmetic treatment available in dentistry, and the results can be amazing.
At Holly Dental Practice, Andy has developed a custom course of whitening over the last 5 years that is tailor made to each patient and guarantees the very best results and minimal sensitivity, if any.
How is teeth whitening done?
- During the first appointment, a starting shade of the teeth is taken, and a predicted shade shown to you.
- A quick set of impressions are then taken, and sent to our specialist laboratory to help make custom fitted whitening shields, with a super-seal technology designed to improve the concentration of whitening gels over a longer period of time.
- A week later, whitening instructions are given and the whitening shields are tried in position. Results can be expected the following day.
- The progress is usually reviewed after a week or two to ensure the correct result has been achieved.
- Where necessary, a maintenance programme is then issued to ensure the procedure never has to be repeated.
