Tooth whitening Musselburgh Edinburgh Scotland UKStained or discoloured teeth can be whitened to give you a bright, white smile. It is an effective way of lightening the natural colour of your teeth without removing any of the tooth surface.
Tooth colour very much depends on the individual: it can darken as we get older and is affected by food and drinks like tea, coffee, red wine and also smoking. Whitening can be a really effective way to lighten your teeth by a number of shades.
A whiter, brighter smile is beautiful – it can help you feel better about yourself and make a memorable impression. Many people undergo tooth whitening before important occasions (like their wedding day!), when they want to look their best!
This gradual treatment involves first having impressions of your teeth taken at the practice then having whitening trays constructed. These trays fit closely to your teeth. A professional whitening gel is squeezed into the trays which are placed over the teeth. These trays are like very thin, pliable, light gum shields and are very comfortable and discreet to wear.
The trays can be worn at convenient times during the day or as you sleep overnight until your teeth are the colour you desire. Many patients find this a preferable method as they can monitor the degree of lightening themselves and stop when they are happy with the result. This method gives you greater control over the final colour of your teeth.
