Ashburton Teeth Whitening

The whitening of teeth has become one of the most popular solutions to transform your smile. By brightening the colour of your natural teeth, you can get the gleaming look you want with this noninvasive procedure. It’s simple, effective and can be completed at home.

Why don’t my teeth stay white forever?

Before and after teeth whiteningTeeth can become discoloured for many reasons:

  • A natural stain during the development process
  • Ageing
  • Certain foods with strong colourings
  • Some medications
  • Drinking coffee, tea or red wine
  • Smoking
  • Trauma

Please note that restorations such as crowns, dentures, bridges or implants will not respond to whitening.

How do stains set in?

The enamel of the tooth is the outer surface, and it contains microscopic holes that can trap stains. With a whitening gel, the holes are penetrated by a peroxide-based compound to remove the stains.

What does the whitening process involve?

First, we’ll see you for a consultation to look at your teeth and gums. Then, we’ll discuss our available options and help you decide which is best for you.

At-home Whitening

You’ll be given all the materials you need to whiten your teeth in the comfort and convenience of home. Custom-created trays and gel are included. The trays are made by taking impressions of your teeth and then sent to a laboratory for fabrication.

You can then decide how many days you’d like to whiten your teeth for, though it can take up to 14 days to achieve your desired results. You’ll place the gel into the trays and wear them for a specific period of time, which we’ll advise you on.

How long does it last?

Tooth whitening in Ashburton isn’t permanent since the factors that contribute to staining are ever-present. You can repeat the whitening process every 12-18 months to keep your teeth gleaming and white.
