Teeth Whitening Treatments


A combination of natural processes, staining by some foods and drinks and by tobacco if you smoke, will darken your teeth as they age. We can help you make them whiter easily and quickly.

We provide you with custom-made trays (similar to very thin gumshields) and a special whitening gel for you to carry out whitening at home. You need to wear the trays for two hours a day for two to three weeks for best results. This is a very safe treatment which causes no physical damage to the surfaces of the teeth.

Teeth Whitening  – Frequently Asked Questions


Is whitening right for me?

Teeth whitening may be the best option if you:

  • Want a moderately whiter smile
  • Want a conservative, non-invasive approach
  • Are happy with the shape and size of your teeth
  • Have a limited budget

How does it work?

We take impressions of your teeth to make custom fitted whitening trays and provide you with a carbamide peroxide gel which you will use in the trays for 2 hrs per day

Will it damage my teeth?

No – the gel has no physical effect on your enamel and it is safe to use for many weeks

Is it painful?

Unless your teeth are already very sensitive, it should be painless. There may be some temporary sensitivity at certain stages.

How long does it take?

This varies depending on the starting colour of the teeth and on how much of a change you desire. On average 3-4 weeks is sufficient to achieve a good result. We recommend you top-up the whitening by using the trays twice a year for 4-5 days

How long do the results last?

Some people’s teeth are more prone to staining than others. i general we recommend a “top-up” whitening every 6 months – using the same trays for 4-5 days – to maintain the brighter colour. Plaque build-up on your teeth can cause them to look yellow, so regular cleaning with the hygienist or dentist is another important part of keeping your teeth healthy and bright.
 

Points to Remember


Many foods can stain your enamel, the outermost layer of your teeth, these include coffee, red wine, soda and dark berries are infamous for staining teeth. That doesn’t mean you have to completely avoid them, but you should limit the amount of time these substances are in contact with your teeth.

If possible, drink beverages known to stain teeth through a straw to prevent direct contact with your teeth, especially after the whitening treatment. High sugar content of many beverages compounds the staining, so we would recommend that you brush your teeth soon after consuming any of these foods or beverages to limit their effects on the colour of your teeth.

One big culprit for teeth staining is smoking. If you smoke you teeth will never be as white and bright as they could be.
