Teeth whitening services at Wallasey Orthodontics
Your smile is usually the first thing somebody notices about you, and a beautiful smile makes a great first impression. At Wallasey Orthodontics, alongside specialist orthodontic care, we also offer teeth whitening treatment to ensure you put your best smile forward.
What is teeth whitening?
Teeth whitening is a process that helps restore teeth back to their natural white colour. A combination of different factors, such as food and drink, affect the appearance and colour of our teeth over time, and can result in staining. Teeth also discolour with age.
Teeth whitening can get rid of these stains and discolouration, giving your smile an added extra sparkle.
How does teeth whitening treatment work?
Here at Wallasey Orthodontics, our teeth whitening treatment consists of using a whitening gel which is placed in trays that are custom-made to fit the shape of your teeth. These trays fit over the surface of your teeth, and the gel works to gradually whiten your teeth whilst you are getting on with your day-to-day life or sleeping.
Most teeth whitening treatments take around two weeks; by the end of this period, you can look forward to showcasing a stunning white – but very natural-looking – smile.
Air-flow air polishing
In conjunction to teeth whitening services, Wallasey Orthodontics also offers an effective stain removal treatment, known as air polishing. This treatment is designed to help remove simple tooth staining caused by certain foods and drinks such as red wine, coffee and curries.
Air polishing consists of one of our hygienists using a pressurised jet of air and water in a controlled stream to clean your teeth. The air polish will remove most built-up stains, including those between the teeth.
Air-flow air polishing is a great first step before whitening, as the teeth will be completely free of surface stains, giving a good base for teeth whitening treatment.
