Tooth whitening

Teeth often become stained by drinking tea, coffee and red wine, or by smoking, and they also become darker over the years. Having your teeth professionally whitened is the ideal way to reverse this process and put the sparkle back.

At Antley Villa Dental Practice in Accrington we offer a choice of tooth whitening treatments: Zoom! in-practice tooth whitening and take home tooth whitening.

Take home tooth whitening

We can provide you with custom-made whitening trays, a little like mouthguards, and show you how to use them with the special tooth whitening gel. You can then whiten your teeth by wearing the trays at home, overnight for a couple of weeks.

Explanation of animation: One of the methods for whitening teeth uses a 'tray'. First of all, impressions are taken ... from which a study model is made. This is painted with a special material ... which increases the thickness of the tooth area. When the tray is prepared, a small pocket is produced. The whitening solution occupies this pocket ... ensuring that it only comes into contact with the required surfaces ... and that no damage is done to the soft gums.

Explanation of animation: Before applying tooth whitening gel ... the gums need to be protected. A potective barrier is applied and hardened using a bright light. The whitening gel is then applied ... and activated using a bright light. The gel will stay on the teeth for some time. This is then washed away and the barrier removed. Leaving bright, white teeth.
