As we get a little older our teeth do darken, add in tea, coffee and red wine and you can forget how white they used to be!
Tooth whitening at Peelhouse Dental Care in Cheshire is a safe, reliable and predictable way to brighten your teeth.
First we need to assess your teeth and gums and ensure they are healthy, any untreated decay, for instance, needs to be treated first as an application of the whitening gel to decay can cause severe discomfort.
Once we have decided you are suitable we will take impressions of your mouth and construct clear custom made trays for your teeth, like very thin sports guards. You then use the trays to apply the gel to your teeth for a few hours each day for 5-10 days.
A difference can usually be seen after the first couple of applications of the gel as this treatment is extremely effective. The gels we use are from White Dental Beauty and are a Hydrogen Peroxide at 5% concentration. We feel these gels give the predictable and safe results that we want.
Occasionally there are side effects such as sensitivity and we will explain to you how to minimise and reverse this.
Once you have these trays, top up gels can be used after the initial treatment to keep your smile bright and white.
Our dental health care plans are for our patients who are dentally fit or have had a course of treatment and want to maintain that level of dental health.
They involve dental health checks with the dentists or therapists and hygiene/gum treatments with the dental hygiene therapists.
