Teeth Whitening Treatment Which You Can Do in Just a Few Hours a Day!

The tooth whitening treatment involves wearing a custom made bleaching tray which you fill with mild bleaching gel for at least 2 hours a day/night for 2-4 weeks.

The advantages are that it is convenient to use and can also be easily topped up by further applications of the gel in the future.

Please note that any future purchases of top up gel will be at an additional cost.

Some disadvantages are that a small number of patients may experience some sensitivity whilst bleaching, but this normally settles after completion of treatment.

Also please note that Crowns, veneers and fillings cannot be whitened, and may require replacement after whitening is completed due to the difference in colour to the surrounding teeth.

Our dentists will discuss how you can maximize your whitening benefits, for a longer-lasting, natural smile.

Tooth Whitening is The Number One Cosmetic Dental Treatment Requested in the UK

Having a whiter smile has never been so easy!

Tooth whitening is growing in popularity as more patients demand a brighter, whiter smile.

Whitening will not change the colour of your teeth completely, but will lighten the shade, without removing any of the tooth surface.

How Long Will The Effects of Teeth Whitening Last?

Teeth whitening can last for up to 3 years, although this depends on your individual circumstances. If you are a smoker or drink lots of stain-able liquids (such as tea and coffee), it is not likely to last as long.

Frequently Asked Questions

While practising good oral hygiene is clearly important, watching what you eat or drink is just as critical. Red wine, sports drinks, soft drinks, tea and coffee, plus curries are just some of the foods that can cause staining of your teeth and thus diminish the effects of teeth whitening.

Keeping your teeth white does require a little care and attention in your dietary and social habits. Note that smoking should also be avoided as much as possible.

No teeth whitening will only work to whiten your natural teeth, it will not lighten existing dental work like veneers, crowns, and fillings, at all.

Teeth whitening products are only designed to lift stains off natural tooth structures, not composite restorations.

Tooth whitening must adhere to the UK and EU Cosmetic Regulations as it is regulated as a cosmetic product in the UK and Europe. This means in professional teeth whitening solutions, the strength of hydrogen peroxide cannot exceed 6% by weight.

When professional tooth whitening is used under the supervision of a dentist at 6% strength, it is very safe.

Provided you have no allergies to the tooth whitening ingredients, if you use the teeth whitening products as directed, you should have a safe and comfortable experience with our whitening.

You do not need to change your diet during your whitening treatment, but we would suggest that you do not eat or drink heavily coloured foods or drinks for an hour after whitening your teeth. Otherwise, you can eat and drink as normal.
