Professional and trusted teeth whitening from Prospect Street Dental Practice in Reading.
Whitening will not change the colour of your teeth completely but will lighten the shade, without removing any of the tooth surface. It is a safe procedure when carried out under professional supervision. Results last indefinitely. Just simply touch up your teeth with whitening gel every few years. Sometimes without a touch up, your teeth will start to re-stain by the same things that caused them to discolour in the first place.
It may be necessary to have other dental treatments prior to whitening, as whitening treatments can only be applied to healthy teeth and gums. A visit to the dental hygienist is also recommended prior to whitening treatment, to give the teeth a thorough cleaning and remove any surface stains. Teeth whitening is not effective on dental restorations such as amalgam fillings, metal or porcelain crowns, etc.
Start your journey to your dream smile
Our Smile Evaluation helps us understand what you would like to change about your smile. Simply tell us what you would like to achieve, and we'll give you an idea of what treatments may be suitable to achieve your dream smile.
At Prospect Street Dental Practice we use simple and safe home whitening systems. Home whitening systems are the most ideal and effective way to whiten your teeth. After checking your dental health, your dentist will take an impression to custom-make dental trays that fit snuggly to your teeth. Once your trays are ready, your dentist will give you whitening gel and provide guidance on how to apply this at home, along with the required length of treatment in order to see your personal results. It may take between 3 days and a couple of weeks to see results, depending on your original discolouration and preferred shade.
Temporary sensitivity can affect some patients. If sensitivity is present, wear times should be shortened or made less frequent. Additionally, desensitizing toothpastes, gels, or mouthwashes can be used before or after the whitening process.

Tooth Whitening Strips
Tooth whitening strips are not as effective as home whitening but can be used to enhance your smile giving a subtle lift to the shade of your teeth. They are applied to your teeth and rapidly dissolve, typically within just 10-15 minutes. Ideal for use on a busy day.
