Nauturawhite Teeth Whitening Appointment What to Expect
You will be given a step-by-step guide at the beginning of your teeth whitening appointment 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 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 15-minute sessions and most customers see an 8 – 16 shade improvement.
We also offer a full range of aftercare products to maximise the results of your appointment and maintain the whiteness.
Frequently Asked Questions
What is teeth whitening?
Teeth whitening can be a very effective way of lightening the natural colour of your teeth without removing any of the tooth surface (enamel). It will lighten the existing shade of your teeth by up to 16 shades.
Who cannot have teeth whitening?
Anyone who is currently suffering from gum disease. It is essential that if you have any signs of gum disease you should be seen by your dentist before attending any teeth whitening appointments.
We also do not recommend that pregnant women do not have their teeth whitened.
How long does an appointment take?
Appointments only take between forty-five minutes and one hour, this is usually carried out over three fifteen-minute sessions.
I want a natural-looking smile is teeth whitening for me?
The finished shade of your teeth cannot be predicted, however throughout the appointment the shade change of your teeth can be monitored and once the desired shade has been achieved the process may be stopped. We find that the best and longest lasting results will always be with the full sixty minutes under the light.
I have Crowns/Caps/Fillings/Veneers, can I have teeth whitening appointment?
Yes you can! The teeth whitening procedure will restore crowns, caps, fillings or veneers to their original colour and will not cause any damage. Please note that the process will not whiten them more than their original colour.
How long with the results last?
For most people, we find that the results are long-lasting. It’s important to remember that exposure to heavily staining food and drinks such as coffee, red wine and curry as well as tobacco will darken teeth.
Your teeth should stay noticeably whiter for a considerable amount of time after having a laser teeth whitening appointment. We also offer an excellent aftercare range to help you keep your perfect white smile!
Is teeth whitening painful?
This is the question that concerns most people. The majority of people find the process completely painless, however, a small percentage of people experience temporary sensitivity to hot or cold for 24 – 48 hours following their appointment.
