Excellent service from Christine, she really is at the top of her game and I always feel I’m in safe hands, along with Sylvia. Thank you for the years of reliable dentistry.
There are lots of things that can contribute to teeth discoloration, including age, genetics, diet, lifestyle habits such as smoking, and certain medications. Teeth whitening is a cosmetic dental treatment that involves removing stains and discoloration from the surface of your teeth to make them appear whiter and brighter. The process typically involves the use of bleaching agents, such as hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide, which penetrate the enamel and break down the molecules that cause discoloration.
At Foxley Lane Dental, we use the industry’s best professional whitening products to help you get a photo-ready smile in just a few weeks.
Teeth whitening can be done in a variety of ways.
At Foxley Lane Dental, we use at-home treatments using professional whitening kits so you can whiten your teeth in the comfort of your own home in between dental appointments.
How it works
Once the whitening solution is applied to your teeth, the active ingredient in the whitening gel, which can be either hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide, starts to break down and penetrate the dental enamel. This initiates chemical oxidation, which breaks down the stains on your teeth, giving you a brighter, whiter smile.
When done properly and under the guidance of our dental professionals, teeth whitening is a safe treatment. It’s important to note that overuse or misuse of whitening products can cause sensitivity, gum irritation, or even damage to the teeth.
The length of time that teeth whitening lasts can vary depending on your lifestyle habits and the food and drinks your consume. In general, the effects of teeth whitening can last from several months to a few years.
Not everyone is a good candidate for teeth whitening. People who have had extensive dental work or have underlying dental issues may not be able to have teeth whitening treatment, but our dentists will be able to let you know if you’re a candidate for teeth whitening.
We recommend that you avoid eating and drinking staining substances such as coffee, tea, and red wine for at least 24 hours after teeth whitening. After that, you can resume your normal diet and habits, but it's important to maintain good oral hygiene practices to ensure the longevity of the whitening results.
