Brighten your smile with teeth whitening
If you are unhappy with your dull, discoloured teeth, whitening can really help brighten up your smile. At Hitchin Dental Care, we offer Boutique Home Whitening and Enlighten Whitening kits for use at home and in surgery. We have selected the Enlighten system for tooth whitening because it guarantees the tooth colour you would like to achieve and shows visible results quickly.
The mouth trays are designed to fit you comfortably and securely, allowing the active gel to work more effectively. It can also be carried out at times to suit you, in the comfort of your own home.
What does whitening involve?
- We take impressions of your teeth so customised whitening trays can be produced to fit.
- When ready, you will wear these at home with a bleaching gel for a specified length of time each day.
- After wearing the trays for a few weeks, you will attend a follow-up appointment to check your teeth have reached the desired shade.
Although this treatment is carried out at home, we still keep a close eye on your teeth to lessen any gum irritation and tooth sensitivity.
Please note, teeth whitening will only work on natural teeth and will not be effective on restorations such as crowns, veneers or dentures.
Internal whitening after root canal
Having a cavity or infected pulp can cause your tooth to darken noticeably. When we treat the tooth, we can add a whitening gel to the internal structure to bleach out the dark marks. We then finish with a white filling, leaving the tooth appearing as if it has never been treated.
