The effects of tooth whitening will last for several years. If you smoke, drink a lot of tea, coffee or red wine the teeth will naturally discolour quicker. The dentists at Heathcote House will give you their advice on how to maintain the whiteness of your teeth.
At Heathcote House most cases of tooth whitening are carried out using a professionally designed home kit. A tray is made that fits the teeth perfectly and a professional bleaching product is placed in the trays next to the teeth.
Some tooth whitening cases can be done in the surgery at Heathcote House but the dentist will give you their opinion on which case will work best for you.
Some patients report slightly increased sensitivity of the teeth and gums during the whitening procedure. These symptoms are usually temporary but the dentists at Heathcote House will review regularly to deal with any complications.
