A Brighter, Whiter Smile
If you’re looking to brighten your smile, remove stains, or simply want whiter teeth, then Teeth Whitening is the perfect solution for you. This safe and effective method involves whitening your existing teeth to lift their colour and make them lighter.
At our practice, we offer a quick and professional Teeth Whitening process with long-lasting results.
You can arrange a FREE consultation with us where we will answer any questions you may have, assess your dental health and ensure you are dentally fit to proceed. You may start the process that same day depending on the fitting of your moulds for the whitening trays.
After your appointment, we will provide you with your own Boutique Whitening Kit to use at home.
Typically, the entire Teeth Whitening process will require 1-2 appointments, including the consultation and will take around two weeks to complete, depending on the use and reaching your desired shade.
Don’t wait any longer to get the bright and beautiful smile you deserve – contact us today to schedule your Teeth Whitening appointment.
What To Expect
Our dentist will take an impression of your teeth to create a custom-fit whitening tray. You can use this tray with a whitening solution at home, putting you in control of your shade change.
You can expect to see results after just two weeks, with teeth whitening results lasting from a few months to three years depending on various factors, such as smoking and consumption of coffee, tea, or red wine.
Our Teeth Whitening treatment includes:
- Two appointments
- Teeth whitening solution and trays included
Things to know:
- Teeth whitening is only available as a private treatment.
- If you have any crowns, veneers, fillings or dentures, it is important to consult with your dentist before undergoing any teeth whitening treatment to ensure optimal results and avoid any complications.
- If you are considering Composite Bonding, we may suggest undergoing teeth whitening beforehand. This ensures that the bonding material matches the desired shade of your brightened teeth, saving you time and money from having to replace the bonding material if you decide to whiten your teeth afterwards. It’s important to keep in mind that once the bonding material is applied, it cannot be altered.
Professional, safe and effective teeth whitening
As stated by the General Dental Council (GDC), tooth whitening procedures should only be carried out by registered dental professionals, after a proper assessment to evaluate suitability and risks involved.
If you are considering teeth whitening treatment, we recommend you speak with your dentist first to avoid long term effects on your teeth and gums.
Frequently Asked Questions
Can Teeth Whitening cause or increase sensitivity?
Yes, some Teeth Whitening products can cause temporary sensitivity due to the exposure of the soft dentin layer underneath the tooth enamel. This allows the whitening product to reach the nerve endings, which can result in sensitivity for some people.
However, this sensitivity should be temporary and typically subsides within a few days when using highly-rated whitening products. It is important to note that unregulated or low-quality whitening products may cause more severe side effects, such as chemical burns on the teeth and gums, as well as prolonged sensitivity. Therefore, it is always recommended to consult with a dentist before using any teeth whitening products, to ensure the safest and most effective ingredients are used.
How long does teeth whitening last? Is it permanent?
No, teeth whitening is not permanent. However, the results of Teeth Whitening can last from 6 to 24 months on average. How long your teeth will remain white depends on a variety of factors, such as your oral hygiene habits, diet, and lifestyle choices. Therefore, in order to maintain that bright and white smile, you’ll need to look after your smile! To extend the length of your results be sure to practice good oral hygiene, (including regular brushing and flossing), and to visit your dentist for regular check-ups and to help keep your teeth white and healthy. Our dental team can provide personalised advice – feel free to ask us about our recommendations and any concerns you may have about Teeth Whitening.
What kind of results can I expect from Teeth Whitening?
The results of Teeth Whitening can vary depending on the condition of your teeth prior to the treatment. While it can certainly lighten your natural tooth colour, the extent of the improvement may not always meet your desired shade in a single session, especially if your teeth are heavily stained. In some cases, multiple sessions may be needed to achieve the desired outcome. Please note that Teeth Whitening only works on natural teeth, and cannot lighten the colour of crowns, veneers, or dentures. If you have any of these dental restorations and wish to improve the colour of your teeth, we recommend consulting with your dentist beforehand to discuss your options.
