Show off your dazzling smile with teeth whitening
Our teeth naturally darken with age through a combination of our diet staining our teeth and the white enamel wearing away to show the darker dentine underneath. Teeth whitening involves a safe chemical process that uses oxygen to break down stain molecules in the surface of the teeth, whitening the teeth.
Dentist supervised home whitening offers a safer, more effective alternative to shop bought kits as the mouth trays are designed to fit you comfortably and securely, allowing the active gel to work more effectively. It can also be carried out at times to suit you, in the comfort of your own home.
Why have home whitening?
What does the treatment involve?
- Impressions are taken of your teeth so customised whitening trays can be produced to fit.
- When ready, you will wear these at home with a bleaching gel for a specified length of time each day.
- After wearing the trays for a few weeks, you will attend a follow-up appointment to check your teeth have reached the desired shade.
Although this treatment is carried out at home, we still keep a close eye on your teeth to lessen any gum irritation and tooth sensitivity.
Please note, teeth whitening will only work on natural teeth and will not be effective on restorations such as crowns, veneers or dentures. Teeth whitening does not provide permanent results but you can reuse the mouth trays and purchase more gel if a top-up is required.
