Teeth Whitening in East Kilbride- FAQ’s
Teeth Whitening

Teeth Whitening is a common treatment at Avondale Dental Practice to remove staining and yellowing on your teeth and leave them looking whiter and brighter.

We understand that you may have a couple of questions if you are considering undergoing teeth whitening treatment, so we have written these below to help you make up your mind.

Q: Why have my teeth become stained in the first place?

A: Over time, drinks such as red wine, tea and coffee can stain your teeth and leave them looking dull and yellow. Lifestyle choices, such as smoking can also cause this.

Q: Do I whiten my teeth myself at home or is it done in the practice?

A: At Avondale Dental Practice, we offer an at home teeth whitening treatment, so you do this yourself.

Q: How long does the treatment take?

A: The length of treatment is dependent on how stained your teeth area. On average, its between 2 and 6 weeks.

Q: How does it work?

A: Our professional teeth whitening treatment uses a bleaching process to safely remove the stains that have built up over time. The bleaching treatment is then transferred into trays (fitted to your mouth) that you wear for a set number of hours a day (or at night).

Q: How long will the results last for?

A: On average, the results can last up to a year, however this is dependent on your lifestyle. Teeth whitening can be maintained by regular top up applications.
