Teeth can become stained or darkened over a period of time due to a number of factors such as age, smoking, or drinking tea and red wine. If you are brushing and flossing twice a day, but still feel that your smile is not as bright as you would like, then our professional teeth whitening treatment may be of an interest to you.
At Hallcross, we only use dental products that are supported by extensive clinical studies and that we would be happy to have in our own mouths. For this reason, we are proud to provide our patients with the tried and tested Teeth Whitening System called Opalescence®.
Teeth whitening treatment at Hallcross is carried out by our team of highly trained dentists. The professional Teeth Whitening system we use is strong enough to remove stubborn stains, but will not weaken or damage your teeth.
Please see below an example of before and after treatment at Hallcross:
Your first step when getting your teeth whitened is an initial consultation with your dentist – to ensure you are dentally fit for whitening treatment before we begin.
If so, a dental impression is then taken and custom trays made from this impression and so that your new trays fit your teeth exactly.
For optimum results, this will ensure that you get a very even and thorough coverage of gel on your teeth whilst wearing your trays. Finally, we will show you how to use your new whitening trays and gels at home as well as provide you with 'instructions for use and aftercare' to take away. As a guideline, we advise that it usually takes up to 7 to 10 days to see any noticeable effects of treatment and the level of whiteness you achieve will depend on your diet and the porosity of your teeth.
