Teeth naturally darken over time and pick up stains from certain foods, drinks and tobacco use. If the diminishing aesthetics of your smile negatively affects you self-confidence you may choose to undergo a tooth whitening procedure.
Following an initial consultation, if it is deemed an appropriate treatment option, your dentist will provide you with customised whitening trays and a kit containing a safe, scientifically-proven whitening gel and applicators for home use.
Is Tooth Whitening an Option for Every Patient?
Many people are not suitable for tooth whitening which is why we have a consultation beforehand. If you have gum disease or other dental health problems you may not be suitable, and you should also be aware that the whitening process does not change the colour of crowns, bridges, veneers or fillings and these restorations may need to be changed following tooth whitening to match the colour of your whitened natural teeth.
Please note, over-the-counter tooth whitening kits are not recommended.
I no longer have issues with visiting the dentist as I have done in the past. I feel at ease and the staff at Smilescene in Stonehouse are great, they are very friendly and that makes a relaxing atmosphere when I am getting my treatment. Highly recommended I'm glad I changed dentist when I moved area.Neil - Strathaven
Smilescene Dental Practice provided me with everything I need for myself and my family, their modern surgery and friendly staff was a welcome change. I thought changing your dental practice would be difficult but Smilescene made the whole process simple and straight forward.Anne Lindsay - Hamilton
