Polanight & White Dental Beauty
Tooth whitening is a simple procedure that lightens teeth and helps to remove stains and discolouration. Whitening is one of the most popular cosmetic dental procedures because it can greatly improve the appearance of your smile. The procedure involves taking impressions of your teeth which are sent to the dental lab to create custom made trays. We then arrange an appointment to fit these and give you full instructions so that you can complete the treatment in the comfort of your own home. Treatment initially takes around 3 weeks from your impression appointment to get to your desired shade. Please note that whitening is not a one-time procedure! However if you look after your custom made trays you can top up your results whenever you feel necessary.
Enlighten Teeth Whitening Treatment
The procedure is simple and consists of 2 weeks of home bleaching followed by a one hour session in the surgery.
Results last indefinitely on the pro-visor you wear the trays 6 nights a year after your treatment. It is also important to maintain good oral hygiene, and see your hygienist on a regular basis.
Enlighten whitening treatment would involve the following steps:
Step 1: A preliminary visit to the dentist to have custom-made trays for you to apply the whitening gel at home. The trays are made from an impression of your teeth and whilst being able to accommodate the bleaching gel, will precisely fit around your teeth.
Step 2: A carbamide peroxide gel is given to you to apply at home. Carbamide peroxide is less dangerous than hydrogen peroxide but it turns into hydrogen peroxide slowly when applied to your teeth. Once at home – on a daily basis – you will inject a small amount of the tooth bleaching gel into the tray. You then place the tray over your teeth, and wear it for a few hours. You can wear the tray anywhere, but most people choose to wear it while they are sleeping. Results can be seen after the first night, but maximum whiteness is usually achieved when the tooth whitening process is continued for 10 to 14 nights. This stage prepares your teeth for the deep bleaching on day 15 at the dentist’s.
Step 3: On day 15, your visit to the dentist would involve the deep bleaching treatment. Your dentist will cover the soft tissues carefully leaving your only teeth exposed. A concentrated hydrogen peroxide gel will be evenly applied to your teeth and a special Enlighten light is shone onto your teeth for around 20 minutes which can be repeated at three intervals.
