Whitening is a process where the tooth discolouration is ‘whitened’ to a lighter shade. It removes the staining agent through chemical means. It is a safe procedure when carried out under professional supervision. Treatment results usually depend on the severity of the discolouration. Both vital (i.e. live) and non-vital teeth (e.g. tooth with root removed) can be bleached and may take several visits to complete. It is not effective on dental restorations such as fillings, metal or porcelain crowns, etc.
Many patients dislike the aging of their smile that occurs as their teeth become darker. Tobacco, red wine, tea, coffee, and natural aging all take their toll on our teeth.
One option is to whiten your teeth using our at home Boutique whitening system.
At Barker Dental Care we offer not only the regular at home whitening but also Enlighten whitening. Having researched other methods of whitening teeth, we think that the Enlighten whitening system is the most effective, has the least problems with sensitivity, is easily maintained, and creates fabulous results.
