With our choice of two simple treatments, we balance the colour of your teeth and achieve a naturally whiter smile of up to 10 shades difference.
Teeth whitening is a treatment carried out to reverse the effects of teeth discolouration, which naturally occurs over time. It can restore youth to a beautiful smile.
Teeth whitening treatment options
Option 1 – Power Whitening and home whitening combination treatment
This is a power teeth whitening treatment carried out at our clinic and gives immediate results. It is safe, effective and fast. It is ideal for the busy individual. A gel is applied to the teeth, which is then accelerated by the lamp.
By the end of the 1 hour appointment the teeth are considerably lighter. This is then followed by a home kit for top ups and maintaining that white, bright smile.
Option 2: Home whitening
Customised trays are made, filled with the whitening gel and worn for 3hours daily or overnight for 2-3 weeks to give a beautiful white smile.
This gives you the flexibility to maintain the new colour of your teeth and never let your smile fade.
At Dental 397, we use the Enlighten teeth whitening system to give you the smile you deserve.
