What is Teeth Whitening?

Boutique whitening

Teeth whitening is a dental procedure focused on reducing tooth colour and eliminating stains or uneven colouring. As time passes, teeth might lose their original colour due to various factors like the consumption of foods and drinks that can stain, tobacco usage, inadequate oral hygiene, and the natural aging process. 

Teeth whitening treatments use bleaching agents to break apart and eliminate these stains, leading to a smile that is brighter and more attractive. At Dental House Exeter, we value the importance of a bright smile in today’s visually-driven world.

Our teeth whitening system can brighten your smile and whiten your teeth, perfect for selfies or corporate headshots. Achieve healthy, natural-looking teeth with us.

Our teeth whitening process begins with our dentist taking a 3D scan of your teeth to create whitening trays that fit perfectly. A precise fit is crucial for optimal results. Once the trays are ready, we will demonstrate the correct application of the special whitening gel, allowing you to start the treatment immediately and achieve your desired smile.

The treatment typically requires 2-3 weeks depending on the frequency and duration of your at-home treatment. Our dentist will provide instructions for optimal results.

Teeth whitening procedures, when performed by a professional dentist, are very safe. Our dentist will make sure that the whitening process is appropriate for your teeth. If you experience temporary sensitivity after the treatment, avoid consuming hot or cold foods and drinks for 48 hours. If the sensitivity persists, take a break for a few days.

How long does the whitening effect last? Results typically last up to 5 years, but vary by patient. The duration depends on teeth and consumption habits.

After achieving your desired level of whiteness, it’s important to maintain your results. This involves practicing good oral hygiene, avoiding excessive consumption of staining substances, and visiting your dentist regularly for check-ups and cleanings.

Let us restore your smile with our professional teeth whitening treatment.
