Advice on Teeth Whitening from a Team of Professionals in Dorking, Surrey

Teeth Whitening in Dorking

Even the most conscious about their oral health can develop discolouration and staining on their teeth. Discolouration tends to come with age, but it can also be caused by smoking and poor oral hygiene in general. At Old Court House Dental Practice in Dorking, Surrey, we provide both professional and at-home teeth whitening treatments to prevent staining from beverages such as red wine, tea, and coffee.

Smile Bright

There are 2 easily achievable options when you want to  achieve a whiter and brighter smile. These include:

At-Home Whitening Treatment

If you select a teeth-whitening treatment that can be used at home, our dentists create impressions of your teeth that can be used as a template to make customised whitening trays. You are advised to wear the whitening trays for a period of time each day, for around 2 to 3 weeks.

There are trays available that can be worn during the day or night so you can easily fit the treatment around your lifestyle. The results of this treatment process are gradual, but if you are not happy with the results after the recommended period of time, your dentist can simply provide you with refill packs. This means that you can continue any further treatment at home.

The Enlighten Evolution™ Whitening System

The Enlighten Evolution innovative teeth-whitening treatment is a unique, safe system that lightens the teeth by a staggering 16 shades. It is the only teeth-whitening system in the world that is capable of this.

We are proud to offer our patients this one-of-a-kind tooth-whitening system for a truly dazzling smile. The Enlighten Evolution treatment differs from other whitening treatments as the gel used is incredibly safe on the gums, using the strongest and most powerful gel formulas. Many other whitening treatments are too strong for the gums and therefore barriers have to be worn to prevent them from burning.

Incredibly, this highly effective whitening system does not need any protective gum barriers. Drs Rishi Patel and Sundeep Dhanoa believe that this system is a fantastic development in tooth-whitening treatments and have seen the amazing results time and time again. Not only is it highly effective, but it is also incredibly safe and easy to use.

How Does the Enlighten Treatment Work?

To get the very best results, the treatment requires a little work on your part. The first part of the treatment involves one of our dentists, either Rishi or Sundeep, taking impressions of your teeth. These are sent straight to the highly innovative Enlighten laboratory. There, custom-made, high-quality bleaching trays are developed and then sealed for each individual patient. The process normally takes 2 weeks to complete.

While the custom-made bleaching trays are being made, you use their fantastic toothpaste called 'Tooth Serum' twice a day, replacing whatever toothpaste you currently use.

Tooth Serum

This innovative toothpaste is unlike any ordinary toothpaste, as it is made with a substance called HA (hydroxyapatite), which is the same substance that enamel is made from. This substance not only improves the whitening results, but also protects the teeth and vastly reduces any sensitivity felt.

After using this state-of-the-art toothpaste, you visit us to collect your special bleaching trays and home-whitening kit. For 2 weeks, you must use the kit and bleaching tray to lighten your teeth every evening. It is also important to continue using the Tooth Serum instead of normal toothpaste, both morning and night.

A Smile that Dazzles

The last part of the process is a treatment in the surgery that takes about 40 minutes, using your whitening trays. This last stage of treatment is very important as it helps to improve the colour further and make sure the whitening is as natural-looking and even as possible. It also helps
retain the shade of white for longer.

One of the great things about this treatment is that you can maintain your dazzling white teeth continually. By keeping your bleaching trays and also buying a home gel kit from us, you are able to top up the treatment whenever you feel the need.

We do suggest that you wear the trays for 1 night every 2 or 3 months in order to maintain the best whitening results possible. On top of this, you can also continue to use the Tooth Serum, which also helps to preserve the colour and form a barrier on your teeth.
