Tooth whitening can be a very effective way of brightening the natural colour of your teeth without damaging or removing any of the tooth surface.
Teeth can become more discoloured as we get older. They can also be stained on the surface by food and drinks such as tea, coffee and red wine. Some people may have staining which can be caused by certain antibiotics or by tiny cracks in the teeth which take up stains.
Dr Stephen Ball will assess your teeth for suitability for this type of treatment at the dental surgery near Sheffield and discuss the results you can realistically expect to achieve when whitening your teeth.
At Precision Dental care we use the Home Tray system with an active tooth whitening ingredient of 10% carbamide peroxide. The Home Tray system has been proven to be just as effective as the more expensive In Surgery Power Whitening.
Usually you can see a result with the first treatment but we expect the full whitening effect to be achieved over a 5-14 day period. At the end of this period we will check the colour shade achieved.
