A guide to teeth whitening from our dentist in Aberdeenshire

Here at Oldmeldrum Dental, we are dedicated to making sure that our patients are happy with the way their smile looks. One of the ways we do this is by providing teeth whitening, which has really helped to brighten up our patients teeth. Sometimes, all it takes to rejuvenate your smile is going a few shades brighter, and our team can help you with this.

Teeth whitening can really help if you want to brighten the shade of your teeth, and give your smile a whiter look. We have two options at Oldmeldrum Dental, in-practice whitening and home whitening kits. Before our dentist in Aberdeenshire starts with either of the treatments, they will examine your teeth to see the severity of your staining, so that they can decide which option is best for you. Impressions of your teeth will also be made to influence the creation of your custom trays. With both the in-practice and at-home treatments, we will provide you with a custom-made whitening tray that fits snug to your teeth.


In-practice


If you are having the treatment done in our practice, our dentist in Aberdeenshire will start off by putting the whitening gel into your custom tray, and putting it on your teeth. We will then activate the chemicals in the gel using a strong beam of light. This process can really help to brighten your teeth by a few shades, which can make a noticeable difference after one appointment. If you decide you want to come back for further whitening appointments to brighten your teeth more, we can do this to give the maximum effect.


At-home kits


If our at-home whitening kits are better for you and your needs, then we will provide you with the custom tray as well as the whitening gel to take home. It is recommended that you wear the trays overnight to get the full effect. You can do this a few times until you reach your desired look. Even though this process is more gradual, you can do it in your own time from the comfort of your own home which is great if you have a busy schedule.


The benefits


Effective method


Whether you choose our in-practice teeth whitening or the home whitening kits, you will see noticeable results after completing the teeth whitening processes. We believe this is largely due to the whitening gel and tray technique, as it's one of the best for giving good results to a lot of our patients.


Well-trained dentists


On top of the very effective technique used, it is important that you have someone doing it who knows the process in and out. Our dentist in Aberdeenshire will take very good care of you throughout the treatment, and ensure that it is given to the highest standard.


Boosting your confidence


Although it may seem like a smaller change, teeth whitening can really alter how your smile looks. It can be embarrassing having yellow teeth, and you may not want to show off your smile, so having this treatment can really help with your self-confidence.
