Home / Tray based Teeth Whitening

Throughout life teeth will discolour with age and food substances such as tea, coffee, red wine. Some people may have staining under the surface, which can be caused by certain antibiotics or tiny cracks in the teeth which take up stains.

Tooth whitening can be an effective way of lightening the natural colour of your teeth without removing any of the tooth surface. Teeth whitening is just giving you a brighter whiter smile!

Professional Home Teeth Whitening

Your dentist will need to make a custom fit tray and will take impressions for this at the first appointment. On the second visit the tray and some teeth whitening gel will be provided for you to use at home.

The gel has the product hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide. This is broken down, oxygen gets into the enamel on the teeth and the tooth colour is made lighter.

How often do I wear the Trays?
The trays with the teeth whitening gel should be worn a minimum of two hours a day on daily basis, but most patients tend to wear them over night.

How long does it take?
If the instructions are followed maximum results are seen usually after 10-14 days of use.
