HQ Dental specialises in providing teeth whitening in Leeds

We believe that the best way to whiten teeth is to use whitening trays and peroxide whitening gel.

Our teeth whitening treatment involves taking impressions and making whitening trays that fit very accurately over your natural teeth.

The trays contain small reservoirs which accommodate the bleaching gel. The whitening gel penetrates the tooth enamel (which is porous) and oxidises staining and discolouration.

Rather than using laser teeth whitening treatment or teeth whitening toothpastes, this is a very predictable way to whiten and your trays can be used for future ‘top-up’ teeth whitening treatments.

Your custom-made whitening trays are produced ‘while you wait’ in our on-site laboratory which means that we can provide your whitening kit in just one visit.

What is teeth whitening?

It’s the process of lightening the natural colour of your teeth, and a variety of teeth whitening systems are available.

Teeth often darken naturally over time, and natural colour varies between different individuals and at different ages.

If your teeth are dark because of external staining, they’ll need to be cleaned before we can begin teeth whitening treatment.

What causes staining?

Teeth staining is caused by external factors. Coffee, tea, fizzy drinks, red wine and even some fruits and vegetables have been proven to cause stains.

Tobacco smokers can also experience discolouration, as chemicals from tobacco products can leave a yellow-brown residue on your teeth.

Staining can also be caused by plaque. If left untreated, this can lead to a build-up of a sticky yellow substance called tartar.

 

The benefits of professional teeth whitening

  • Whiter teeth can help you feel more confident
  • You’ll receive personalised treatment rather than using an over-the-counter solution
  • You’ll look great at social occasions and important events
  • With a professional dental surgeon, whitening your teeth is safe and comfortable and your broader oral health will also be taken care of

 

Is teeth whitening safe?

Teeth whitening has been carried out safely for decades in the UK and no long-term side-effects have been reported.

A small minority of patients experience some mild discomfort during teeth whitening procedures, but the sensations are temporary and do not affect the outcome of achieving a whiter, brighter smile.

The professional teeth whitening gels used by HQ Dental’s cosmetic dentistry experts contain de-sensitising agents to minimise any potential discomfort.

Is getting your teeth whitened suitable for everyone?

Teeth whitening only works for natural teeth.

If you have dental restorations such as crowns, veneers, composite fillings or bridges, these are usually made from a synthetic material that can’t be lightened by the cosmetic whitening process.

If you have restorations or suffer from sensitive teeth, you should consult with your dentist, who will decide the best course of action for you.
