Home Teeth Whitening

Whitening teeth at home

An easy and convenient way of whitening your teeth. Home teeth whitening does exactly what it says on the tin - improves the colour of your teeth in the comfort of our own home.

Teeth whitening at home

Home teeth whitening is one of the most common procedures offered by Rock House Dental Practice. The results are literally dazzling.

How to whiten teeth at home?

The procedure for home teeth whitening is as follows:

Firstly, we assess your suitability for the procedure. Remember, crowns and false teeth will not whiten. We take photographs of your teeth to record the start colour of your teeth.

Secondly, we take impressions or moulds of your mouth to allow construction of custom fit trays. These trays fit your mouth precisely and will hold the tooth whitening agent in place.

Thirdly, we provide the tooth whitening trays to you. We demonstrate how to use the whitening gel and you are able to whiten at your convince. If it is your first time whitening your teeth, we recommend that you whiten for at least two weeks. Depending on what you prefer, you can tooth whiten overnight, or for a few hours per day.

Lastly, you will have an appointment to check the final result. Again, we take pictures to compare against the initial colour.

Disadvantages of home teeth whitening

The major problem with teeth whitening is that on occasion, patients do not feel that their teeth have whitened enough. That is why its so important to have your suitability assessed before starting. If you have thin or limited enamel, your teeth will not whiten. If you do not use the trays and gel properly, your teeth will not whiten. Patients with thin or limited enamel will also suffer from tooth sensitivity during the process. Painkillers will help, and the sensitivity usually resolves when treatment is complete.

Teeth whitening treatments at home

There are hundreds of tooth whitening procedures and treatments available. Be careful, many of these are illegal and dangerous. Facebook and sites like Groupon, often offer special deals, but you should know that tooth whitening is now tightly regulated. Hence, it is now provided by dental professionals only.

Patients often use abrasive toothpaste to scrub the stain off their teeth. This will not whiten your teeth in the long term. Initially, you may see an improvement, but over time, the enamel will rub off. Once the enamel becomes thin or rubs off, you will see the underlying dentine. This is a yellow colour, and you will never be able to whiten it. You will also have increased sensitivity from your teeth, as there is no protection from the enamel.

Best at home teeth whitening

It is a very safe treatment. But, for the bests results, seek treatment from a qualified dental care professional. Don't take any risks, as you could be left with lifelong damage to your teeth, gums and even lips.

    positive review  I am needle phobic. The last time I saw a dentist was when God was a boy. I was seen by Kiran and Gemma.
    I love both of them as I had the dental wand for a filling. It then turned into a tooth extraction. The best £257 quid I...
