It is a non-invasive way of brightening the colour of your teeth and can be done for adults of any age.
Firstly, the dentist performs an examination of your teeth and advises you if any routine treatment such as fillings or gum treatment is required.
Then you will be advised if there are any teeth that will not respond to whitening (e.g. teeth covered by porcelain crowns or with large white fillings).
Impressions of your teeth are taken for the construction of custom-made whitening trays. These trays are thin and soft so very comfortable to wear. At the fit visit, the dentist demonstrates how to load and wear the trays and gives instructions on using the whitening gel.
Patients generally wear the trays at night when asleep.
Typically, it usually takes two weeks to achieve a result, but some cases take longer
