Teeth Whitening

If you are unhappy about the colour of your teeth or your have some staining, Balham Lodge Dental Practice provides professional tooth whitening treatment that can address this with great results. At Balham Lodge Dental Practice, our team has training and experience in delivering tooth whitening treatment to a very high standard.

Teeth can be stained by foods, drinks, smoking and certain medications. Teeth whitening is a safe procedure that can lighten the colour of your teeth by using a safe dental bleaching agent. Individual results vary and are based on your initial tooth colour and the nature of your tooth staining.

The teeth whitening process involves the use of a bleaching agent, which is applied directly to the teeth to lighten them through a chemical process. Home whitening kits are also available and lighten the teeth more gradually. A custom tray is made to fit snugly over your teeth. The bleaching agent is inserted into the tray which can be worn overnight or a few hours during the day. With all whitening treatment, individual results will vary and are based on your initial tooth colour and the nature of your tooth staining.

Here we custom-make a lightweight plastic mouth tray for you that fits snugly over your teeth. You then put a whitening gel inside the tray and wear it at night or for a few hours during the day. Results are normally seen over 2 weeks and your teeth will also appear whiter and brighter.

We look forward to looking after your smile!
