Most people do not have brilliant-white teeth. As we get older, the surface of our teeth can discolour, mainly due to smoking or the foods and drinks we consume — tea, coffee, and red wine, for example. Tartar build-up can also affect the colour of your teeth, and some people may have staining as a result of taking certain antibiotics.
Your dentist will assess the overall condition of your teeth and let you know if you are a suitable candidate for professional teeth bleaching.
The teeth whitening process is straightforward. Products usually contain hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide as the active ingredient. Your dentist will take an impression of your mouth and have a bespoke whitening tray made. It fits like a mouth guard, evenly distributing the product across the surface of your teeth.
When your treatment is complete, your dentist will provide you with post-treatment care advice on how to maintain your brilliant new smile. You may also want to incorporate a whitening toothpaste into your daily oral Hygiene Routine.
At Absolute Dental, we recommend the Boutique Whitening kit to patients who wish to lighten their teeth at home. This kit is a safe, effective, and convenient way for you to enhance your smile.
The Boutique Whitening kit contains a whitening gel packaged in a syringe. Your dentist will provide you with custom-made plastic trays. You will apply the gel to the tray and wear it for the prescribed period, based on the initial shade of your teeth and the results you want to achieve. You can also purchase more gel as needed.
You will need to have an assessment with your dentist before trying Boutique Whitening to make sure you are a suitable candidate for the treatment. The product will only lighten your natural teeth and will not change the colour of Crowns, Veneers, or Fillings.

As the active ingredient in Enlighten Evolution™ passes through the tooth’s enamel, oxidation occurs, and stains break down, leaving your teeth noticeably whiter.
Enlighten Evolution™ is safe and painless, yet it offers magnificent results. The company claims the product can whiten teeth by up to ten shades.
