Tooth whitening

Tooth whitening is the number one cosmetic dental treatment worldwide. It is a simple, safe and effective method of creating a whiter and brighter smile.

Teeth are stained by the foods and drinks we consume. Smoking further stains teeth and the natural bright, white shade becomes darkened. The degree of whiteness achieved by tooth whitening will vary from patient to patient and with the type of bleaching process chosen.

At Eckington Dentist, the whitening process involves making a custom made mouth tray that will fit precisely to your mouth. A whitening gel is placed in the tray which you then wear whilst asleep or for short periods during the day. Results are normally seen over 2-4 weeks. Before and after shade changes will be shown to you to appreciate the transformation.

We will be able to assess your smile to advise you on the best way of achieving the results you wish for. This may sometimes involve a combination of tooth whitening and veneers to produce that winning smile.
