TEETH WHITENING

Teeth whitening has rapidly become one of the most popular dental treatments, helping to remove unsightly stains caused by tea, coffee, certain foods and smoking.

At Ringley Park, we are able to offer you a simple, safe and effective way to enhance your smile with our at-home tray whitening kits. This procedure involves wearing custom-made trays, filled with small amounts of professional grade whitening gel. To achieve effective tooth whitening, the kits are usually used for about two weeks, however sometimes longer is needed.

If you are considering teeth whitening, it is important to book a consultation, as any cavities or decayed teeth must be treated before treatment.

What’s involved?

First you’ll come in and have an impression taken so we can create bespoke trays that will fit snugly and comfortably over your teeth. Then we’ll provide you with whitening gel and instructions on how to apply the gel and how often. You’ll do this at home over a period of two weeks, then come back in for a follow-up appointment.


Will it hurt my teeth or gums?

First you’ll come in and have an impression taken so we can create bespoke trays that will fit snugly and comfortably over your teeth. Then we’ll provide you with whitening gel and instructions on how to apply the gel and how often. You’ll do this at home over a period of two weeks, then come back in for a follow-up appointment.


What results can I expect?

This very much depends on what shade your teeth are to begin with. We recommend having a through professional cleaning before starting a whitening treatment, in order to get the best results. If you follow instructions, you will see visibly whiter teeth.


Will my crowns be whitened too?

No, whitening gel is not effective on artificial surfaces such as ceramic crowns or porcelain veneers. Only natural teeth will be whitened. For this reason we recommend whitening before having a restoration, so the crown or veneer can be colour matched to your newly-whitened teeth.


How long will it last?

The whitening won’t fade as such, but your teeth will eventually become stained again, just as they did before being whitened. You can minimise this by stopping smoking and avoiding food and drinks that stains, such as tea, coffee and red wine and coming for regular visits to the dental hygienist.
