Would you like to have whiter or brighter teeth? Gentle home whitening
is now available.
Is it legal? Tooth whitening is legal if carried out under the
supervision of Dentists and Hygienists. This ensures it is carried out
with the correct products. Custom made trays are made to fit your mouth.
These are used to apply whitening gel at home to gently white teeth over
a period of at least 10 days.
Does it hurt? Sometimes whitening can cause sensivity. This only lasts
during the treatment and once stopped your teeth go back to their pre
whitening sensitivity levels. This seldom happens and can be reduced by
chewing sugar free gum after wearing the trays.
Will it damage my teeth? Current evidence suggests that tooth whitening,
when carried out with the correct products, is a safe and predictable
How long will my teeth stay white for? Experience shows teeth usually
maintain colour for 1-2 years. After this wearing your whitening trays
with gel for a further 7days can be used to restore whiteness. Smoking ,
drinking tea, coffee and red white tend to darken teeth sooner.
Bovey Dental Practice uses products which release less than 6% Hydrogen
peroxide, the legal limit permitted by EU law.
