Little things we do in our everyday life can impact our smile. Teeth can discolour for a number of reasons including food and drink you consume, smoking, medications, alcohol and trauma. Teeth whitening can be used to lighten teeth, resulting in a brighter smile.
The only people in the UK who are legally authorised to administer this treatment are GDC registered dentists. This is to ensure the safety of you and your oral health. Any person who is provided teeth whitening treatment who are not GDC registered, are doing so illegally.
At Kings Mills, we use an at-home whitening treatment. This means you can whiten your teeth overnight and at your own pace. We take an impression of your teeth which will be sent to a lab to make you a custom teeth whitening tray. You will then be provided with your gels and all the information you will need for a successful teeth whitening experience. Initial results will normally be seen after as little as 5-8 days with results usually achieved after 2-3 weeks. The effect of the whitening can last up to several years however it is recommended to do regular top ups every 6-9 months or as needed.
