A digital scan is taken, and custom bleaching trays are made. These trays are very important as the seal has to be very good. If there are spaces where saliva can get underneath and into the tray it will neutralize the bleach which means the teeth whitening won’t work. It can be difficult getting good impressions using conventional techniques and there are many problems associated with them. With new digital scanning the accuracy is excellent which means you get the very best bleaching trays with the best seal. We can take you from an A4 to a B1 shade and will discuss the options with you in depth.
Photos are taken to assess the starting colour of your teeth.
The bleaching trays are fitted and checked to ensure they are a perfect fit.
You will be whitening your teeth at home and we will give clear instructions on how to load up the bleach in the trays.
Every day your teeth will gradually get whiter and whiter.
Once you are happy you can stop. As the process is gradual, you are in control of how white you want your teeth to be. Typically, it will take two weeks to whiten your teeth.
