Take home teeth whitening can produce great results!
Throughout the whitening process you may experience tooth sensitivity but this is completely reversible. Products such as tooth mousse help combat sensitivity and are used by placing tooth mousse directly into your teeth whitening trays. Tooth sensitivity occurs because teeth dehydrate throughout the teeth whitening process. This is what causes the sensitivity. The teeth will rehydrate themselves again from your saliva.
While whitening your teeth, you should try to stick to a whitish looking diet. Steer clear of foods such as beetroot and black tea and coffee as much as possible. Once treatment is complete, maintain you brighter smile with maintenance whitening. This means using the whitening gel once every 2 months or so to keep your teeth pearly white. If you run out of teeth whitening gel you can purchase top up teeth whitening gel at your regular 6 monthly preventive care appointment.
Should you be a new patient who already has teeth whitening trays, you can simply buy the top up gel from us.
