Here in Southend, cosmetic dentistry teeth whitening couldn’t be easier. You pop into us for a whitening kit and then carry out the treatment at your leisure at home, over a few weeks. So now is the perfect time to get started on teeth whitening for a Christmas smile to match the snowy season.

In Southend, cosmetic dentistry teeth whitening kits are from a brand called Pola, which costs £350, and contains two active ingredients. The first is the whitening agent, which is carbamide peroxide. This breaks down into 3% hydrogen peroxide (and urea), which is the bleaching agent. Along with this, the gel also contains amorphous calcium phosphate, a special ingredient to reduce sensitivity, protect the tooth enamel and enhance the pearliness of your teeth.

You just fill the special tray with the required amount of gel and pop it over your teeth, and wear it for at least a couple of hours. In Southend, cosmetic dentistry teeth whitening works best if you wear the tray overnight, which is what we recommend.

The colour your teeth will lighten to depends on the colour of the staining or discolouration to start with. We find that cosmetic dentistry teeth whitening in Southend works best on teeth that are yellow or brown at the start, rather than grey. However, this does not mean that greyish teeth cannot be improved by teeth whitening.
