Before and after teeth whitening

Teeth Whitening

A brighter whiter smile

Teeth whitening is possibly the most popular cosmetic treatment which allows you to obtain a brighter and healthier smile in a relatively easy way.

Over time, our teeth naturally become slightly darker through ageing processes. Additionally, extrinsic factors such as tea, coffee, red wine, and smoking contribute to teeth discolouration.

Teeth whitening will bring you a bright and healthy-looking smile without unnecessary treatment. It will help to make you feel younger and boost your confidence.

Does teeth whitening hurt?

Teeth whitening is a minimally invasive treatment, and it is unlikely that you will feel any discomfort during the procedure. Occasionally, patients can experience some sensitivity, which is easy to control using toothpaste for sensitive teeth.

Will teeth whitening damage my teeth?

No. Teeth whitening is safe and the least damaging, non-invasive cosmetic treatment. Extensive studies show that using bleaching materials with 6% hydrogen peroxide does not damage the tooth surface. If you are pregnant, we would recommend you consult this with your medical doctor.

How long will teeth whitening last?

Teeth can stay whiter for years, although it is not permanent and depends on how you look after your teeth. Tea, coffee, red wine, and smoking may cause recurrence of stains. Good oral hygiene helps to prolong the effect of teeth whitening.

Who can do teeth whitening?

Some beauty salons still offer teeth whitening, but this is illegal, and it may put your oral health at risk. The General Dental Council imposed stricter controls on who is allowed to provide teeth whitening. Teeth whitening is a dental procedure and should only be carried out by a dentist or another regulated dental professional, such as a dental hygienist or dental therapist, on the prescription of a dentist.

We offer professional teeth whitening done at home

With the home system, we create a special whitening shield which is made to fit perfectly over your teeth. You simply put the special whitening gel into trays, and you wear them overnight or during the day depending on your preferences until you achieve the desired level of whiteness.

The whole idea of the home whitening system is so you can top up any time you feel might like brightening your teeth.

Teeth whitening will only have an effect on your natural teeth, and you might need to change your existing crowns, veneers, and composite fillings.

Please consult your dentist before teeth whitening to discuss your treatment options.
