Teeth Whitening

Our teeth become stained through the foods and drinks we consume, with tea, coffee, red wine and cola being particular culprits. Habits such as smoking and even certain medications can also stain your teeth. Teeth whitening treatment uses special bleaching gel to remove these stains and create a natural-looking brighter, whiter smile.

At our Rugby dental practice our skilled cosmetic dentists have been providing teeth whitening treatment for many years. If you are interested in teeth whitening, the most important thing to remember is that it should only be carried out by a fully-qualified dentist. By law, only a dentist or dental hygienist acting on a dentist’s prescription can carry out teeth whitening.

While there are many products available on the high street and online that claim to whiten your teeth, these should be avoided. At best, they will not work and you will have wasted your time and money. At worst, they can cause serious damage to your teeth and gums.

At Rugby Dental Care the teeth whitening products we use are tried, tested and safe. Your dentist will first see you for a consultation at our Warwickshire dental practice before recommended the most appropriate teeth whitening option.

Home teeth whitening

Home whitening uses whitening gel and custom-made trays to gently remove stains from your teeth. Your dentist will take impressions of your teeth in order for your trays to be made, and will call you back into the practice when the trays are ready. They will show you how to use them – you should place a small amount of gel in the trays and wear them overnight or for short periods during the day for approximately two weeks.
