If your teeth are starting to look yellow or stained, our teeth bleaching and whitening treatments could be for you. At Allsopp Orthodontics, we offer a free tooth whitening consultation so you can find out more about this effective treatment for a brighter smile.
Please note, we are unable to carry out bleaching on any patients under the age of 18.
What is teeth whitening treatment?
Much like hair and eye colour is inherited, tooth colour is too. But over time, your teeth can lose their whiteness and become discoloured. A number of factors contribute to this such as smoking, drinking tea, coffee or red wine, and eating certain foods, such as those heavily laden with spices. Age can also cause our teeth to lose their shine as can some medications.
Teeth whitening treatment usesa bleaching gel to help return your teeth to their original colour. It won’t harm your teeth, nor remove any of the tooth’s surface.
Our teeth whitening services
Although teeth whitening treatment won’t harm your teeth, we will undertake a clinical examination of your teeth to ensure there are no risk factors. We will then issue you with your home bleaching kit and explain how to safely use this to get the best results. You can expect your whiter teeth to last for up to two years, depending on your lifestyle and your maintenance of them.
The cost of our teeth whitening services can be found on our cost and finance page.
