If you would like a brighter, whiter smile, then teeth whitening might be a great option for you. Teeth whitening is a safe procedure providing your teeth have been checked for suitability by a dentist. It is illegal for anyone other than a dentist to prescribe teeth whitening treatment.
How does teeth whitening work?
We offer a number of teeth whitening systems the most popular being home whitening. You will receive a custom made set of trays which fit over your teeth comfortably. The active teeth whitening gel is placed in the trays and fitted onto your teeth. For best results we recommend you use your trays overnight and avoid coloured food or drink.
Our in-surgery treatment takes around an hour and can brighten your smile immediately, so if you are looking for a quick fix, this maybe it.
We also offer Enlighten whitening which uses the home whitening technique for 2 weeks, then you attend an appointment in surgery for a supercharged gel with higher concentration of carbomide peroxide, for a guaranteed brighter smile.
Will it hurt?
A lot of people do experience some sensitivity in their teeth whilst whitening. Enlighten treatment provides a desensitising treatment prior to whitening to reduce sensitivity, If you do experience sensitivity, smearing sensitive toothpaste on the affected areas works really well.
How old do you have to be to have your teeth whitened?
Patients must be over 18 to have their teeth whitened.
