Harwood Dental – How to whiten your teeth from home

Our dental practice in Bolton is modern and comfortable but the fact remains that it is still a dental surgery. We can appreciate that despite our best efforts, it maintains a medical atmosphere because it is, after all, a place where people come to have their teeth and gum problems corrected.

However, there is one treatment we provide which is performed in the comfort of your own home. You can apply it yourself, without the aid of a dentist’s chair and all the equipment you need will be provided by us. That treatment is tooth whitening.

Home tooth whitening kits are the ideal way to brighten teeth that have been stained due to excess tea and coffee drinking, or discoloured as a natural part of the ageing process. The fact that you can administer them yourself at home, at bedtime, when you’re relaxed, makes it a relatively pleasant dental procedure to undertake. At the end of it, provided you have followed the instructions precisely, your teeth should be significantly whiter by several shades, making you look healthier, possibly a bit younger and certainly more attractive.

Why buy a home kit from your dentist?

There are many advantages to using a home whitening kit provided by a professional dentist. For a start you’ll know your money won’t be wasted because you’ll be using a leading brand. (We provide Enlighten and Zoom! kits) Our kits have a proven success rate, far better than most unfamiliar brands. Cheapest price is really never the best indicator of quality!

The mouth-trays that you use will be custom-made in our surgery. Your teeth will be professionally prepared beforehand to ensure that they are healthy enough to receive the bleaching agent and cleaned to allow for optimal results.

Everything that you need to know about the treatment will be advised by our dentist. You will be guided through the whole process before taking the equipment home and applying the whitening kit to your teeth. If you experience any problems, or you have a question, you’ll be able to get in touch with us. Obviously we wouldn’t be in such a good position to problem-solve or answer your questions if you’re using a tooth whitening kit with which we are not familiar.

If you’d like to have a brighter, whiter smile and get rid of those stains on your teeth that have been bothering you, Please get in touch with our surgery in Bolton to book an appointment. If you’d prefer to have a no-obligation consultation beforehand, we can arrange that. We look forward to helping you whiten your teeth in your own home environment. Please give us a call or email
