How does teeth whitening work?
You will be given a step-by-step guide at the beginning of your teeth whitening appointment in our Leeds clinic and asked to follow the simple instructions.
A shade guide is used to let you check the shade of your teeth before and after the appointment. You will gently cleanse and scrub your teeth. At this stage, any recent surface stains are removed and the enamel is given a gentle exfoliation. A textured accelerator wipe is coated with an activation spray and you will give your teeth a brush. As well as giving the teeth a deep cleanse, this will build up a lather and foam which helps draw the gel into the pores of your enamel.
A sterile mouth guard is then removed from a sealed foil packet and non-peroxide gel is applied. You then place the mouth guard into your mouth and put on a pair of protective glasses to wear.
You then place the mouth guard into your mouth and put on a pair of protective goggles. Sit back, relax and let the teeth whitening gel and laser light get to work! The laser light creates an oxidation reaction which will remove stains and tooth discolouration from the inside out.
A full teeth whitening appointment consists of 3 back to back 20-minute sessions and most customers see an 8 – 12 shade improvement.
