Many people feel years younger after the treatment, having erased the effects of aging, coffee, red wine and cigarettes. At The Old Surgery Dental Practice we offer two professional teeth whitening solutions, Enlighten and Boutique.
Enlighten and Boutique are without doubt the best whitening products we have used in the last 15 years, the results are excellent and both deliver the results they promise. We do still regularly use the Day White and Night White systems as well, as part of our adult orthodontic treatments, and for patients who want to enhance their smile without the desire to reach the shade B1(very white).
Professional teeth whitening works by increasing the tooth’s permeability to oxygen which breaks down stain molecules. It is a combination treatment meaning there is a two week home treatment followed by a 1 hour visit to the dentist.
