Teeth Whitening, Loughborough

Tooth whitening is the process of using a professional bleach to make teeth whiter. The ‘active ingredient’ in the product is usually hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide. As the active ingredient is broken down, oxygen gets into the enamel on the teeth and the tooth colour is made lighter.

There are a number of reasons why you might get your teeth whitened. Everyone is different; and just as our hair and skin colour vary, so do our teeth. Very few people have brilliant-white teeth, and our teeth can also become more discoloured as we get older.

We have two whitening systems that we use here at Carillon.

PolaDay & Enlighten

PolaDay is our traditional whitening kit, providing you with whiter teeth with our at home kit.

Enlighten is our deluxe whitening kit, Enlighten promises to guarantee you a B1 shade, which is the whitest shade your teeth can naturally go. This system really helps to control any sensitivity, if you suffer more with this. They provide you with sensitivity products in your kit to prevent this.

The Process 

  • We book you in for a free consultation with one of our dentists here, & in that appointment they will check that you are dentally fit before we can proceed with the whitening.
  • If so, we take your moulds of your teeth. Which then allow us to have some trays to be made for your whitening to begin. These trays fit around your teeth comfortably and securely to ensure the gel gets into every surface
  • At your next appointment once the trays have been made, we would go through how to use your at home whitening kit and how to place the trays in correctly.
  • With our PolaDay system, the whitening takes around 2-3 weeks of wearing the trays for an hour a day with the gel to get the best results for a bright white smile.
  • With our Enlighten system, the whitening takes around 2-3 weeks of wearing the trays for 4 hours a day, this can be worn overnight.

*Enlighten offers an additional in house whitening treatment if you haven’t reached the B1 shade.

Aftercare for Whitening

Avoid stain-causing foods and beverages – coffee, tea, wine, sports drinks, hard candy, berries and tomato sauce are all foods that can cause tooth discoloration.

Use a straw – when drinking beverages, use a straw to keep stain-causing dyes away from your teeth.
