Teeth Whitening

Teeth Whitening

Teeth whitening enable you to improve your smile simply and dramatically, by gradually increasing their shade until you are happy with the results.

There are several methods of teeth whitening, but we at Smile Suffolk – Ipswitch we favour Take-Home Whitening. A custom tray is made to fit comfortably in your mouth and a special gel is placed in the tray, which is then placed over the teeth and kept in place the amount of time suitable to your requirements.

Most patients are advised to wear their trays over night until the desired result is achieved, but you can expect to see a big difference after 2-3 days.

Achieve healthy white teeth

A good way to achieve healthy white teeth is to match the colour of your teeth with the whites of your eyes and, to achieve optimum results, we suggest the following:

  • You must follow our dentists’ advice
  • You should be consistent with the treatment.
  • You are not ‘yellowing’ whilst you are whitening your teeth – meaning that you should avoid food and drink with excessive colour such as tea, coffee, red wine and curry.
  • If you sustain a good diet, you can expect your teeth to retain their colour for approximately 2-4 years. And you can maintain your result long-term using the ‘top up’ the whitening procedure and booking in regular visits with your hygienist.

Teeth whitening is a simple and safe procedure, but we would advise against treatment if you are pregnant or breast feeding. Teeth whitening can cause sensitivity, which is normal, and is present only during the whitening process, subsiding soon after it is stopped. Your dentist will give you some simple advice to reduce the sensitivity whilst you get your desired result.

Dentistry is not expensive. neglect is.
