How white will my teeth get?
Whitening can whiten up to 16 shades, results vary but if used correctly all teeth will whiten dramatically.
Will they look too white?
No, natural teeth rarely look too white. Sometimes very white crowns can look wrong because they are made of porcelain.
Will my crowns, veneers or fillings change colour?
No, sometimes you may need to change some of these after whitening.
Is there pain or discomfort?
You may get some sensitivity, however your dentist will give you easy to use desensitising swabs to take home which will work immediately. You will also receive a tube of Tooth Serum toothpaste to brush with while you wait for your trays, this also helps with sensitivity.
How long does it take?
Two weeks after your dentist delivers your home whitening trays. These are thin and comfortable and must be worn in bed for 14 nights, then on the 15th day you need to see your dentist for the second treatment, which takes just 40 minutes.
How long does it last?
Results can last indefinitely with some very simple maintenance, wearing the trays for 1 night every other month.
Is it safe?
Completely. The materials used in home tray whitening have been used in dentistry for over 100 years.
Can I spread the cost of treatment?
Hale Dental offers a variety of payment plans.
