Teeth whitening involves bleaching your teeth to make them lighter. Teeth whitening can't make your teeth brilliant white, but it can lighten the existing colour by several shades.
Lisburn Dental Clinic offers a “take home Whitening kit”. The dentist will take an impression of your teeth to make trays which fits inside the mouth. We will instruct you how to use it with a bleaching gel. Then, using your trays at home, you regularly apply the gel for a specified period of time over two to four weeks.
Another type of teeth whitening system that we provide at Lisburn Dental Clinic is called laser whitening, which is also known as ZOOM whitening. This is where a bleaching product is painted onto your teeth and then a light or laser is shone on them to activate the whitening. Zoom whitening takes place in surgery and can take several hours.
Teeth whitening should only be performed by a dentist or another regulated dental professional, such as a dental hygienist or dental therapist, on the prescription of a dentist.
Some beauty salons offer teeth whitening, but this is ILLEGAL if there's no dental professional present, and it may put your oral health at risk.
