Teeth whitening is a popular cosmetic treatment amongst people in Glasgow with many self conscious about the colour of their teeth. Teeth can become discoloured over time due to eating and drinking habits and smoking, that’s why this treatment is now chosen by more people. When having your teeth whitened it’s important that you have it done by a professional like a dentist or a regulated dental professional like a hygienist, as these people are trained in carrying out the procedure and do it on a daily basis. Teeth whitening can lighten your teeth by several shades so the difference it makes is noticeable.
At Govan Dental Care we offer two options for teeth whitening; home teeth whitening or in-surgery whitening.
Home Teeth Whitening
Although this type of whitening takes place outwith the dentist surgery it is still monitored and controlled by the surgery. When you opt for this type of whitening we start by taking impressions of your teeth to make you up a customised bleaching tray which is used for the whitening gel. This type of whitening can show great results in as little as 2 weeks if the gel is applied in small amounts over that period. Of the two whitening options, this one is cheaper.
This type of teeth whitening involves patients coming into our surgery in Glasgow to have the procedure carried out but produces instant results. You can either come for one long visit or 2-3 shorter ones for a great result. This whitening uses powerful gels which are applied by the dentist.
A small number of people may feel some tooth sensitivity for the duration of the treatment but this can be controlled by something given by the dentist.
Teeth whitening varies in price due to the different options that are available, feel free to contact us to find out more about teeth whitening or prices.
We have been carrying out this procedure now for many years here at Govan Dental Care so offer effective and safe treatment.
