Teeth Whitening in Stoke-On-Trent
Teeth whitening, otherwise known as ‘bleaching’, is one of the most popular cosmetic treatment available. Teeth become discoloured if you have bad habits such as drinking tea and coffee every day and smoking.
Teeth Whitening is great if you want to remove deep stains from your teeth or get them back to their original shade. Whitening treatments can give you an almost instantaneous boost and will make your teeth look younger, healthier and more radiant in a very short space of time.
As a leading cosmetic dentist in Stoke-On-Trent and Staffordshire, we have performed thousands of teeth whitening procedures with excellent results. The products we provide are all EU compliant and are proven to be effective with little sensitivity.
This is the oldest whitening technique used by all dentists to produce reliable results with minimum side-effects. Custom made tight fitting whitening trays are made and we supply you with whitening gels to perform this technique. This method is very cost-effective as the trays can be reused over and over again to help you create and maintain that whiter, radiant smile.
Laser Whitening/Power Whitening
This can be the answer to give you an instant boost without weeks of waiting. Our latest advanced POWER WHITENING technique has ultimately replaced laser whitening and has far less sensitivity to your teeth and gums. Results usually take about 50 minutes and usually produces 8 shades lighter. We suggest that this technique is only used for a quick fix and if longterm results are required, then you should consider the home whitening package.
