Drinking tea, coffee and red wine, eating curries and smoking can all stain your teeth. However, if these stains are external only, a thorough scale and clean may be all that is required. If it is determined that teeth whitening is required, there are two common methods.
Professional Home Whitening System
Many practices may use the rapid one-hour in-surgery application of bleach, which is activated by a laser or curing light. This method can cause increased sensitivity and a lot of the initial whiteness is caused by dehydration of the teeth. This method is the harsher, more aggressive process.
Alex only uses the gentler, supervised take home kit approach. We construct custom trays, record current tooth colour and give instructions for how to whiten the teeth. You take the trays and whitening agent home to use over a 10-day period. We then review the result.
