Teeth Whitening Before and After
At Mulgrave Dental Care, we offer the multi-award winning Boutique Whitening, a premium quality teeth whitening system which is designed by dentists and can only be prescribed by a dentist. Boutique is designed to fit in with your lifestyle by offering day and night options for your convenience.
The Boutique by Day formula will require 1.5 hours wear time per day, or alternatively, there are 4 types of overnight gels that can be offered depending on patient requirements. The teeth whitening options will be offered to patients after a dental examination is carried out to assess the overall oral health of the patient. We will take an impression of your teeth and send it to the Boutique Whitening laboratory where they will precision manufacture your bespoke whitening trays.
Teeth Whitening FAQs
Natural tooth whitening (bleaching). This is the most common method of improving the colour of teeth. It can take a few weeks to reach the desired shade but there is no lasting damage to teeth or gums if carried out correctly and with the right equipment and materials. This leaflet will aim to answer most of your questions regarding this procedure.
It is only necessary to watch your diet for a few hours after each whitening session. If you consume a lot of red wine, black tea and coffee or smoke a lot then you will still get an improvement in your colour but it may take longer. This may be a good opportunity to quit smoking if it has been on your mind and achieve the teeth that you have desired bringing you new confidence and a healthier lifestyle.
If the gels are used as prescribed by the dentist then there is minimal risk of any long term damage and the short term problems such as sensitivity can be easily managed. In rare cases the treatment needs to be abandoned due to an adverse reaction to the materials used but it is very rare. You can decide when to stop whitening your teeth but it is advised that you continue for one week after you achieve the desired colour as there will be some shade regression.
