How does teeth whitening work?

Your dentist will initially carry out a consultation before taking a mould of your teeth. This mould is then sent to our lab where your custom fit trays can be made. The tray/s will fit comfortably in your mouth. A harmless bleaching agent is added by you to the custom tray to whiten your teeth. By wearing this custom tray a few hours a day or overnight for up to three weeks, you can brighten your teeth and smile with confidence. You can increase or decrease the number of days to suit

Is it safe?

Teeth whitening must only be carried out by a registered dental professional. If this is the case then, teeth whitening is a safe procedure and the bleaching agent used is safe for teeth and gums. The dentist will check first to see if it is suitable for you. Dental Therapists and Dental Hygienists working with a dentist can also provide teeth whitening. This is simply a cosmetic treatment. If there are any concerns then the practice will be available to provide further advice.

Can I afford it?

Everyone should be able to afford the benefits of teeth whitening. That is why we offer a range of competitive prices.

How long will it last?

That’s hard to determine, it can be months to years depending on your situation and you may find you want “top ups” to keep your teeth as white as possible for as long as possible. Or just want to have that wow effect for a special occasion.

Teeth whitening treatments can provide great results. The whitening effect won’t last as long if you smoke or drink red wine, tea or coffee, which can all stain your teeth. Good teeth brushing twice a day will help reduce the build-up of stains. However, you might also want to use whitening toothpaste to help maintain the effect. Our dentists and dental hygienists can also remove stains and help you keep your new bright smile.

Can everyone get their teeth whitened?

It is important to note, teeth whitening will not be suitable for teeth with crowns, dentures, or fillings. It is also not suitable for anyone under the age of 18 or with gum or tooth sensitivity. You must always discuss this with your dentist.
