Manchester Teeth Whitening – What Are Your Options?

As a multi-award winning dental practice in Manchester, teeth whitening is something we carry out regularly for patients. More often than not it’s carried out as a stand-alone treatment. However it’s also utilised as part of a combination of treatments, such as an enhancement prior to dental implants. Manchester patients therefore may well be wondering what their options are. With this in mind, let’s take a closer look.

Chair-side treatments

When you visit a dentist for teeth whitening in Manchester, patients should know that it can come in several forms. Firstly, there’s the chair side treatment itself. This is more commonly known as power  whitening and consists of a 45 minute treatment that can whiten teeth 4-8 shades lighter than your present condition. So how does it work?

Firstly a patient’s gums are covered leaving the teeth exposed. Next a special hydrogen peroxide gel is applied to the surface of the teeth. When activated with a special light the hydrogen peroxide contained within the gel sets to work removing any surface staining. After approximately 10 minutes it’s rinsed off and the process is repeated until the perfect shade has been reached. It’s quick and results can be immediate.

Professional in-home whitening kits

For those who prefer to whiten teeth in the comfort of their own home, we also supply professional in-home Manchester teeth whitening kits. These are not to be confused with the over-the counter whitening products that you can pick up for a few pounds. Instead our night time home tray whitening kits are designed specifically in the form of custom trays which are taken from impressions of your teeth. The kit is taken home where the trays are filled with a high-grade bleaching gel. This is done before going to bed at night and are worn during sleep. In the morning the trays are removed and the gel rinsed away, where the process continues the following night. The main difference between this and our chair-side treatment is the length of time it takes. Usually professional at home whitening kits like this take around 6-8 weeks in order to reach the desired shade. Conversely, results using chair-side power whitening can be seen within hours.

Combination treatments

At our Church Road dental practice Dr Karim and the team also offer teeth whitening Manchester in the form of combination treatments. By nature, teeth are porous. This means that staining can easily return after a period of time so ongoing upkeep is required. For this reason combination treatments involve either a chair-side teeth whitening session followed by several weeks of in home whitening, or 6-8 weeks of using a professional in-home kit followed by one top up session at our practice to ensure teeth remain white and bright.

Treatment package

Finally teeth whitening can also be carried out as an integral part of a treatment package. For example it can be used to complement a complete Smile Makeover. This utilises multiple treatments such as wrinkle reduction, porcelain veneers, or gum contouring to create that perfect smile. Likewise it can also be used as an enhancement before undergoing treatment such as dental implants Manchester, or in conjunction with orthodontic treatments to complete a perfect look.

Whatever you decide, Manchester teeth whitening is an affordable cosmetic dental treatment that fits in with our modern day lives. So if you want a healthier brighter smile, then why not talk to us about teeth whitening in Manchester today. To make an appointment contact us on 0161 486 0743.
