Teeth Whitening

Teeth whitening at Richmond Dental Centre, Nelson New Zealand

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.

Here at Richmond Dental Centre, we can give you back your youthful white smile using a whitening gel called Carbamide Peroxide. This is not harmful to the teeth or your body and can whiten your teeth by at least two shades.

We take an impression of your upper and lower teeth to make customized plastic guards. The whitening gel is placed in the guards, which are worn at night while you are sleeping or for at least four hrs. After about 14 days you should see a noticeable change in the colour of your teeth. Your dentist will monitor your progress on a weekly basis to make sure the tooth whitening is proceeding well.
