Tooth Whitening

Only a dentist can get your teeth their whitest!

All tooth whitening procedures, including bleach and laser treatment, are the practice of dentistry. Our dental professionals are registered with the General Dental Council to legally carry out these procedures. At Walford Mill Dental Care, we offer our patients the option of ‘Home Whitening’ for a fee of £389.

At your first appointment, we will take impressions of your upper and lower teeth for our dental laboratory to create your custom made trays. These will be made to fit your teeth only!

A week later, they will be fitted in your mouth and advice will be given on how to apply the whitening gel to your trays. You have the option to wear them through the night or for a few hours on an evening in the comfort and privacy of your own home. Results will vary depending on your lifestyle habits and dentition. Tooth whitening cannot alter the colour of existing crowns, fillings or partial dentures. You will be advised to avoid consuming staining foods and drinks such as red wine and curry as well as smoking whilst in treatment!

If you are considering having your teeth whitening, speak to your dentist or dental hygienist at your next visit or have a read of this Tooth Whitening leaflet.
