Teeth Whitening

We offer a wide variety of different teeth whitening procedures here at Pennington Dental and can meet the needs of anyone looking for a brighter, whiter smile.

Teeth whitening is a bespoke treatment individual to each patient and is certainly not an off the shelf product, Dr Fuz will design a treatment plan to take into account your particular whitneing needs and any further restorative work you may need.

An example of a treatment plan to maximise whitening and reduce sensitivity

  • Total time 6 Weeks home trays only protocol
  • The upper teeth are whitened for 2 weeks while the lower teeth are desensitised using a special gel used within the whitening trays.
  • Then the lower teeth are whitened for 2 weeks and uppers desensitised.
  • Finally 2 weeks of upper and lower whitening is conducted simultaneously.

Dr Fuz has found this to be the best way to reduce and sometime eliminate completely teeth whitening sensitivity and generally gets the best results with the 6 week protocol, but everyone is different and your individul treatment plan will be assessed, discussed and agreed.

In some cases it may be necessary to extend this treatment protocol to further than 6 weeks where there are elements within the smile that need further more extended whitening.
