We offer the Buxton Dental Practice 'White for Life' system. This is our most popular and recommended way of whitening. Its perfect for fitting it into busy schedules as it is done at home, also meaning you can control the results yourself.
A complimentary dental hygienist visit is included in the price. To get your treatment off to the best start you will receive a thorough scale and polish ensuring that you are whitening the tooth itself rather than any build up on the tooth's surface. At this point we will also take your colour shade. You will then have impressions taken of your teeth which will enable us to make your custom whitening trays.
Once your whitening trays are made, you will be asked to attend for a quick and final visit in which you will be provided with a case containing your trays, whitening gel and a tray box. Your dentist will provide you with a simple guide on using the trays and then you can go home and begin whitening that night!
Top up gels are available from the practice. Just pop in and ask a member of staff.
Will it harm my teeth?
NO! Not when done properly. Some home kits you can buy on the internet or from some beauty salons can be harmful. Dentists, however, have been whitening teeth since the mid 1800s allowing much research to be conducted on the topic and when following professional advice whitening is a safe, easy and painless process.
What about sensitivity?
Some sensitivity can occur with home kits but in a normally healthy mouth (and we will check that for you) the effects go away after a few hours. Using toothpaste for sensitive teeth is recommended to use along side whitening (Colgate Pro Relief is a good one!)
Do I have to change my lifestyle?
No far from it - home whitening can be done at a time of your convenience, you are in control and can wear your whitening trays whilst doing daily jobs. Whilst whitening and for a few days afterwards try and avoid curries, red wine, strong coffee and tea as newly whitened teeth are more susceptible to staining.
Can I use the kit if I have crowns or false teeth?
Yes. Although the gels will not whiten crowns or fillings, only natural teeth. You can replace your crowns and fillings to match your teeth after you have whitened.
