Teeth whitening is designed to provide you with a fresher and more youthful smile, making your teeth look lighter and brighter. It removes tooth stains caused by coffee, tea, red wine and smoking - or if you generally have yellow teeth, it can make them whiter.
Teeth whitening can be carried out at our dental surgery in Kew or at home. You can also opt for a combination of both for greater results. Home tooth whitening kits consist of professional strength whitening gel and a tray which is custom made for you to fit over your teeth. At Kew Road Dental, our qualified dentist will demonstrate how to apply the solution as well as advise how long you need to wear the trays for. The tray is just like wearing a gum shield and once you start the tooth whitening process your teeth should reach your desired shade in just two to three weeks.
If you are looking for that white Hollywood smile, our in-house surgery option enables us to activate the gel with a special light. This can achieve whiter teeth instantly in just over an hour! However, we may still recommend enhancing your teeth whitening with further visits to the surgery or a home whitening kit for the best results.
Many people are self conscious about dark staining or discolouration on their teeth. Some people naturally have yellow teeth but it is easy to brighten your smile with a professional tooth whitening treatment which can make your teeth many shades lighter.
Your teeth will need to be assessed by our dentist first to ensure they are suitable for teeth whitening. Our dentist at Kew Road Dental in Richmond is qualified to administer safe teeth whitening solutions and to supervise you with your home whitening treatment.
Having your teeth whitened is one of the easiest and most cost effective cosmetic dental treatments and can help to boost your confidence immediately.
Most of our teeth whitening patients say how they feel younger and wish they had done it sooner!
There are many teeth whitening products on the market but you will need to make sure it includes the regulated safe measures of ingredients. Some whitening products can irritate your gums or cause undue sensitivity if you use them incorrectly or too often. Ask our dentist in Richmond for more details and do not risk whitening treatment by an unregistered provider.
After treatment your teeth can remain white for many years, but relapse is not uncommon due to personal behaviours that can stain your teeth again. You may need a top up treatment after a year or so, though you should visit our dentist or hygienist first to check the health of your teeth and gums.
