Teeth whitening treatments are designed to improve the colour of natural teeth without having more invasive and expensive dental treatments such as fillings, veneers and crowns. The chemical process is entirely safe and the colour change is long-lasting with an achievable eight shades lighter.
Naturally a gradual change in tooth colour can be caused by, coffee, tea, tobacco, red wine and natural variation during tooth formation (e.g. fluorosis and antibiotics) and of course AGE. We believe the earlier you start whitening your teeth the whiter they will be during your life.
Even following a meticulous oral care and cleaning routine at home, It’s unavoidable that over time some yellowing or discolouration will occur. To enable you to achieve or recapture a beautiful, alluring, bright smile, we have three levels of whitening available at Lucas Dental, to suit varied budgets, lifestyles and time restrictions.
Our top level, this package offers a chair side power whitening procedure of 2 hours and involves the construction of custom made whitening trays for you to use at home to top up your whitening and to maintain your smile, with follow up appointments
Our second level consists of the chair side whitening procedure of 2 hours only.
Our third level is the Home Whitening package. Many people choose to brighten their smile in the comfort and convenience of their home to fit in with their busy life schedule using our in-home procedure. At your initial visit, we will make detailed moulds of your teeth and create comfortable, customised mouth whitening trays. The whitening trays are a discreet mouthguard which you fill with the whitening gel and place over your teeth, thereby avoiding contact with the gums.
For both the Platinum and Gold Whitening packages, we use Phillips Zoom technology for our in-chair power whitening. Professional strength gel is applied to the teeth and activated with the Phillips Zoom lamp for immediate results.
While teeth whitening is very effective, each individuals result can differ. Drinking tea, coffee, red wine and smoking during and after your whitening treatment can lessen its effectiveness and longevity of the results you have achieved.
