Tooth Whitening/Bleaching

Our teeth darken with age as they are exposed to and absorb pigments from food and drink and tobacco. Did you know that the combination of deep pigments and acidity in red wine is especially liable to cause changes in enamel colour?

Whitening or Bleaching can restore your teeth to a more youthful colour, and can make you more confident about your smile.

There are some things that make bleaching unwise or likely to be ineffective and it is important to have a thorough dental examination to assess this.

The tooth’s enamel has darkened with time, to a certain depth. We have found that repeated doses of bleach whiten teeth more effectively and lastingly than one intense treatment.

At Woodward Dental Practice we can prepare customised splints that hold the intensive bleaching agents where they are needed and limit the amount of product that contacts the rest of your mouth. You can wear the splints with the intensive bleach at times most convenient to you. You will start seeing result right away and more dramatic results within a few weeks
