Teeth whitening to help you achieve the perfect post-lockdown smile

During and post lockdown, many people have been on a quest to achieve the perfect smile. This is according to research from Clearpay, which revealed that sales of teeth whitening products have increased by 180% since lockdown began. 

Perhaps you have noticed your teeth looking dull and discoloured following those extra cups of coffee whilst working from home, or the glasses of red wine whilst relaxing at home? Whatever the cause, if your teeth are in need of brightening up, it’s really important that you do this properly - using an approved system administered by your dentist. 

At Riverside Dental Spa we don’t just offer one, but two fantastic teeth whitening treatments, both of which can be carried out at home to help you achieve the perfect smile. We also offer in-chair whitening treatment too if preferred.

Let’s look at each of these treatments in detail below so you can decide which might be suitable for you.

Zoom professional take home teeth whitening

This tried and tested treatment, effectively removes stains, leaving your teeth looking whiter. The best part about Zoom teeth whitening is that you can carry out the treatment at your leisure. We find that most patients prefer to wear the custom made guards filled with whitening gel whilst they are sleeping, thus causing no disruption to their normal day to day activities. 

What you need to know about Zoom teeth whitening:

  • You’ll need to have a consultation with our dental team first to ensure the treatment is suitable for you and so that we can take an impression of your teeth to make the custom trays you will use for your treatment.
  • We’ll show you how to use the gel and trays and will provide instructions for use and aftercare.
  • It generally takes around 7-10 days to see any noticeable results.
