Teeth whitening can be a simple yet very effective way of brightening your smile. At Anokhi Dental, we offer in-chair whitening and home whitening options.
These can be used either individually or in conjunction with each other. The active ingredient is hydrogen peroxide (not bleach) and it is safe and gentle to use on the teeth
Options for teeth whitening:
This is conveniently carried out in the comfort of our beautiful clinic in a single 90 minute appointment. The dentist applies an activated whitening gel on the teeth for 7 minute cycles until the desired result is reached. This is the fastest way to achieve the best possible results.
This involves using a milder whitening gel in custom made trays for 30 minute cycles at home. This is done over the course of a number of days for a slower outcome with the same impressive results.
Which treatment is suitable for you?
At Anokhi Dental, your dentist will examine your teeth and discuss your best options for achieving a whiter smile. This will depend on many factors such as:
Extent and cause of discolouration
How sensitive your teeth are
The condition of your teeth
Your dental history
What result you would like to achieve
For example, if you have sensitive teeth, we’ll use a lower concentration for a longer period to avoid triggering your sensitivity while also achieving the results you want.
However, if you don’t suffer from tooth sensitivity, you may be a candidate for a more robust in chair treatment. If you exhibit severe discoloration you may be advised an in chair treatment followed by a course of at home whitening.
Under the supervision of your dentist you can be rest assured that your teeth are being whitened safely using a high quality and safe product.
