If you are unhappy with your dull, discoloured teeth, whitening can really help brighten up your smile.

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. Whitening is a part of dentistry and should only be performed by qualified professionals.

Teeth Whitening

Why are my teeth stained?

Teeth naturally darken with age, losing their natural whiteness and youthful appearance. This is exacerbated by consuming dark drinks, such as tea, coffee and red wine, which stain your teeth over time. If you are a smoker, this also has an impact on the whiteness of your teeth.

If you have recently had a dental restoration, such as a crown or veneer, your natural teeth may appear slightly darker. Restorations can become stained, but at a slower rate than your other teeth. It is important to note that whitening treatments are not effective on dental restorations.

Teeth Whitening

What does the treatment involve?

The treatment is carried out in the comfort of your own home, at times that suit you. However, we will still keep a close eye on your treatment and teeth, to minimise any gum irritation or tooth sensitivity.

  • Impressions are taken of your teeth so customised whitening trays can be produced to fit accurately and comfortably.
  • When ready, we show you how to apply the whitening gel and advise how often you need to wear the trays for 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.

The results are not permanent, so you may need to have follow up treatment in the future for maintenance. We will keep an eye on your teeth at your routine check up appointments.
