Teeth whitening is the use of whitening agents to lighten the colour of teeth. Ageing, surface stains caused by food or drink, poor oral hygiene and dental problems can cause tooth discolouration.
Whitening toothpastes, whitening kits or varnishes may remove surface stains, but professional whitening products provided by dentists will give better results. The dentist will recommend the best treatment for you after consultation.
Dental Care on Wondall offers two different treatments.
ZOOM! Whitening system
This is carried out by the dentist following a consultation to check your medical and dental history. The Zoom! Whitening systems is a highly concentrated gel that is applied directly onto the teeth. The Zoom! Lamp is shone onto the teeth to activate and quicken the lightening process. Treatment can be completed in one visit and results can be seen immediately.
