Teeth can become stained or darkened over a period of time due to a number of factors such as age, smoking, or drinking tea and red wine. If you are brushing and flossing twice a day, but still feel that your smile is not as bright as you would like, then our professional teeth whitening treatment may be of an interest to you.
An increasingly popular treatment for restoring the sparkle to your smile, teeth whitening is a quick, effective and safe procedure for removing stubborn stains on the teeth that can’t be removed by brushing alone. Our procedures are strong enough to whiten your teeth, however will not damage or weaken them.
Your first step when getting your teeth whitened at Just Orthodontics is an initial consultation with us – to ensure you are dentally fit for whitening treatment before we begin. If so, a dental impression is then taken and custom trays made from this impression and so that your new trays fit your teeth exactly. For optimum results, this will ensure that you get a very even and thorough coverage of gel on your teeth whilst wearing your trays.
Finally, we will show you how to use your new whitening trays and gels at home as well as provide you with 'instructions for use and aftercare' to take away. As a guideline, we advise that it usually takes up to 7 to 10 days to see any noticeable effects of treatment and the level of whiteness you achieve will depend on your diet and the porosity of your teeth.
