Teeth whitening is a fast and easy way to improve your smile. It gives you a confidence boost whilst making your teeth sparkling and beautiful.
Teeth can be discoloured or stained by cigarettes, tea, coffee, red wine and other food. At Azure Dental, we can restore your teeth’s natural sparkle.
There are two ways to whiten your teeth:
Chairside Teeth Whitening
Our Office 1-hour power whitening can whiten teeth by up to several shades, brightening your teeth dramatically to its natural shade. Your lips and gums are protected first with a special mask, and a whitening gel is applied to your teeth.
The higher concentration of whitening gel applied to the teeth makes the teeth brighter and whiter in a short period of time. At the end of the appointment there is a noticeable change in the colour of the teeth. This will then have to be followed up by a more rapid form of the home treatment to stabilise the colour change and enhance the final result.
2. Take Home Whitening Kit
This procedure involves two visits. At your first visit, the dentist will take a mould of your teeth and fabricate a bleaching tray. You will use this bleaching tray with the whitening gel in them and wear in for at least 1 hour every day depending upon concentration of the whitening gel given to you and the results can be seen after 1 week.
This procedure provides a slower result but is a more controlled and continuous whitening process until you are happy with your shade.
At Azure Dental we use Opalescence for all our bleaching/whitening.
