Teeth Whitening

Extrinsic stains can appear on teeth over time as a result of eating and drinking certain foods and beverages. Teeth also naturally turn more yellow with age, as a result of acquiring pigmentation inside the teeth.

Therefore, some people feel that they could improve their smile with brighter, whiter teeth. Teeth whitening lightens teeth and helps to remove stains and discoloration. Whitening is among the most popular cosmetic dental procedures because it can greatly improve how your teeth look.

Dental Care Ireland offers teeth whitening in all it’s practices.

Teeth Whitening Process

Step One


First, the dentist will perform a dental examination to check if your teeth are suitable for teeth whitening. This will include a check-up and may include some x-rays of your teeth.

Its important to note, not everyone is suitable for teeth whitening, some reasons being; gum disease, tooth decay or hypersensitivity.

Step Two


Once your suitability is confirmed, the dentist will then work with you to identify the shade you wish to achieve.

Impressions will then be taken of your teeth, so that customised whitening trays can be made for you. Once these are made, you will be invited back to collect your teeth whitening kit.

Step Three

Treatment At Home

Once you have taken your teeth whitening trays and gel home, they are to used for 1 hour per day for approximately 7-14 days to achieve a good result.

After you have completed the course, you should have plenty of gel left which you can use to “top-up” your teeth to keep them looking white.
