Teeth Whitening
..Needn't be this difficult!

It's simpler than you think !

Who wouldn't want a wonderful, youthful smile?

Teeth whitening can enhance your smile by gently lifting the natural tones of your teeth. The result? A brighter and more youthful appearance. No matter what age, almost everyone can benefit.

It works, it's simple, it looks great!

We use the Optident Whitening System for home use which is designed to be worn for between four and eight hours per application. The gel is applied to the teeth by wearing slim teeth guards. Most people prefer to wear these at night whilst asleep; however you can also wear them during the day. The process is very successful and predictable, though the number of applications varies from one individual to another. You can control the final outcome and progress at a rate that suits you.

How do I maintain my newly whitened smile?

Over time, exposure to foods, drinks (especially coffee, tea, colas and red wine) and tobacco will gradually darken your newly whitened teeth. But there are steps you can take to maintain your pearly white smile. Compared to the time and/or money required to whiten teeth, it takes only a small effort to keep them looking their brightest.

Here are some tips for maintaining your newly whitened teeth:

  • Use a whitening toothpaste to remove surface stains and prevent yellowing
  • Brush or rinse immediately after consuming stain-causing beverages or foods
  • Reduce or avoid the intake of beverages that stain such as coffee, tea, colas and red wine
  • Wear a bright shade of lipstick-blue or pink based. It will make your teeth appear whiter. Avoid orange or brown shades
  • Check whether you need a touch up. Depending upon the whitening method you used, you may need a touch up after a year or two. If you smoke or drink a lot of coffee, you may need a touch up more often

Are there other alternatives for whitening my smile?

Not everyone is a candidate for whitening. Bleaching is not recommended if you have tooth-coloured fillings, crowns, caps or bonding in your front teeth - the bleach will not change the colour of these materials, making them stand out in your newly whitened smile. In these cases, you may want to investigate other options, like veneers or laminates and crowns.
