There are different techniques available to whiten teeth including ‘in office bleaching’/ laser whitening and the ‘take home’ system. At Kilfeather Dental we offer the ‘in office bleaching’ and the ‘take home’ system.
Research has shown the ‘take home’ system to be the most effective method of whitening teeth. It has been found that the ‘in office bleaching’ relapses and does not last as long as the ‘take home’ system. For this reason most cases we treat at Kilfeather Dental will be with the ‘take home’ method but we will always discuss, with you, what is right for you.
Teeth whitening is a highly effective way of lightening the natural colour of your teeth without removing any tooth surface..
What is the procedure?
Take home system
