At Perfect Profiles we offer two types of teeth whitening designed to suit your lifestyle. Our in-chair Philips Zoom! treatment is a 60 minute session consisting of 4 x 15 minute whitening sessions, a scale and polish beforehand and a free consultation. We also offer home whitening kits with professional whitening trays made from impressions taken of your teeth in-practice. These suit people who would prefer to whiten their teeth in their own time at home.
This is the cheaper and most commonly chosen option of teeth whitening. By making an impression of your teeth, the dentist will create a special bespoke fitted tray in which Philips Zoom! whitening gel is added. They will start off the whitening process and demonstrate how to use it. You will need to wear the tray overnight for about a week, similarly to how you would use the home kits you can purchase from most chemists in the UK.
What is important to remember, however, is even though the home gel is the same strength as the in-chair whitening, as the treatment is delivered over a longer set of time, the results are not as instant as the in-chair whitening can be. It is also highly recommended to have any teeth whitening treatments carried out by a professional dentist, as it is a treatment that can be dangerous if your standard of oral health is not professionally assessed as being safe to undergo it.
Before any treatment, our dentists will offer a free consultation and comprehensive check to ensure that your teeth are in good health. Please be aware that tooth whitening treatments cannot be carried out when oral health problems such as cavities or infections are present.
