Teeth discolour for many reasons through ageing, some foods and drink, smoking, trauma and also some medication.
As dental professionals, we are able to safely carry out dental whitening to achieve a brighter whiter smile for you safely.
At Regency, we are now delighted to be able to offer Enlighten Evolution Whitening as well as Philips Zoom, Boutique Dental Whitening and BlancOne, an in-chair dental whitening system.
Enlighten Whitening can be described as a premier whitening system. The system provides you with long-lasting whitening results with low sensitivity.
At your initial appointment, dental impressions are taken and sent to the Enlighten laboratory for your personalised whitening trays to be made. Clinical photographs are taken and the shade of your teeth recorded.
Your whitening trays will take 2 weeks to be made and during this time if you are undergoing the Enlighten Evolution Whitening system, you will receive a dental serum to brush with for the 2 weeks.
When you collect your trays a desensitising treatment is also applied to your teeth to reduce the chance of sensitivity whilst using the the Enlighten whitening treatment.
On collecting your trays, you will wear the trays for a period of 2 weeks using Enlighten Whitening gels, followed by a visit to the practice where a further gel is applied to your trays to complete the treatment.
After this appointment, your teeth should have reached the guaranteed Vita B1 shade.

I was always very self conscious about my brown discoloured tooth, but didn't think anything could be done about it.
The treatment was very simple for me to carry out and the staff were amazing; I am so happy with the result.
The teeth still look a natural colour and the white patches on my other teeth have evened out as well.
I feel so much more confident and would highly reccomend dental whitening at Regency Dental Practice.
This new in-chair dental whitening system was developed in Italy. BlancOne have developed photochemical technology so the whitening process is carried out in the dental chair effectively and safely.
BlancOne is a great introduction to dental whitening for patients for those wishing to have dental whitening and for those patients who don't feel able to wear the whitening trays. It is also excellent for those special occasions where you require a quick boost and brightening of the teeth.
BlancOne Click uses the whitening gel applied for 10 minutes and uses a light to activate the gel. You can expect 1-2 shade changes, so this literally brightens the teeth quickly. This is ideal following your hygienist visit or for that special occasions. This can be carried out every 6 months.
BlancOne Touch, will achieve a longer-lasting and brighter shade of teeth. The whitening gel is applied 3-4 times using the light to activate the photochemical process. Colour change can be expected of up to 8 shades. We find this system excellent for patients who have crowns and dentures on some dentitions that are lighter than their now natural teeth. We can, in some cases control the whitening s0 the teeth match your crowns bridges and dentures again.
After whitening treatment, you should avoid strongly coloured food and drinks for 48 hours. Following BlancOne Touch its advised to have BlancOne Click carried out every 6 months to maintain the new shade of your teeth.
