What will my Teeth Whitening Treatment Involve?
Our teeth whitening clinics are based in Kent, Essex and Nottingham; your treatment is carried out in a private and confidential treatment room and includes a comprehensive consultation, explaining to you the details of the procedure and the benefits of the system and the expectations of the likely results.
The whole procedure will take around 1 hour to perform.
A soothing and protective Vitamin E gel swab is applied to the gums and inner lips before carefully applying a protective barrier dam to the gums around the teeth, which prevents the whitening gel from contacting the sensitive soft tissue of the gums during treatment.
The whitening gel is then carefully applied to the teeth and our bespoke LED (light emitting diode) laser is carefully positioned in front of the teeth to activate the whitening gel.
The whitening gel is at its most active for the first 15 minutes of the process, therefore leaving the gel on the teeth for a longer time than this will not enhance the whitening process. A total of 3 separate applications of fresh whitening gel are applied, for a total of 45 minutes whitening time.
Immediately following your treatment and for the first 24 – 48 hours, any drinks or food containing any food colour should be avoided. We recommend you only consume white foods for this period as the teeth will be susceptible to discolouration having used the whitening gel, which results in the subsequent opening of the pores of the teeth. These pores will take approximately 48 hours to restructure and fully close, after which you can resume your normal diet.
