Tooth whitening in Ormskirk
Quick and affordable tooth whitening by Cottage Dental Practice
Tooth whitening provides a quick and simple treatment for patients looking to improve their smile without damaging their teeth.
Through diet or smoking teeth can become discoloured over time. With modern techniques it is possible to drastically improve the colour of your teeth. At Cottage Dental Practice we provide our patients with a choice of home whitening or in-surgery whitening.
The tooth whitening treatments we provide
Home base tooth whitening
Home whitening allows you to whiten your teeth in the comfort of your own home. The process begins with the dentist taking a mold of your teeth, a dental lab will then custom make whitening trays to comfortably fit over your teeth. Your dentist will then explain how to use the trays.
Over a couple of weeks, the trays containing the whitening gel are worn for a few hours/overnight. Over this time your teeth will gradually lighten. Your dentist will then review your progress and together you can decide if further whitening is needed.
In Surgery tooth whitening
This procedure takes place within the dental surgery and provides faster results than home whitening.
During the treatment, teeth are isolated with a special material so that only your teeth are exposed to the powerful whitening gel. A special blue light is then used to activate the whitening gel. Treatment typically lasts between 45-60 minutes and you will see a noticeable improvement in the shade of your teeth immediately after treatment.
We often combine in-surgery whitening with home whitening in order to achieve the best possible results for you.
