Teeth Whitening

Smile With More Confidence

And Make A Great Impression First Time, Every Time

Red wine, coffee, age and genetics can make your teeth yellow and discoloured, which can have an ageing effect and spoil your appearance. The good news is, you don’t need to hide your teeth any more!

Teeth whitening is a simple and inexpensive way to make your teeth whiter. Although not a permanent solution, tooth whitening, if done properly, will usually last between 6 and 12 months. It gives a brighter smile which is still very natural.

Teeth whitening is a simple, safe and effective, non-invasive treatment which is growing in popularity as more and more people, young and not so young, are experiencing the benefits that it brings.

We can carry out tooth whitening for suitable patients utilising a more gentle tray whitening approach – with patients wearing custom-made, thin, gum shield-like trays containing bleaching gels. These trays are worn over a two or three week period for up to 2 hours per session, every other day. This more gentle approach reduces the sensitivity which can affect some patients during the whitening period.

Whitening helps you achieve a more youthful appearance and, in more deeply discoloured teeth, an improvement in colour of 3 shades can be achieved. A couple of top-up sessions are then carried out after 4 to 6 months after the initial course of treatment has been completed.

What Is Involved With Tooth Whitening?

The technique involves taking impressions of your teeth and getting laboratory made custom bleaching trays. Tooth whitening gel is then applied to the trays which are fitted to the teeth.

The trays hold the gel on the teeth and with time the teeth lighten. The more often you apply the gel the lighter the teeth will go. 

What Causes Tooth Discoloration?

There are many causes including ageing and consumption of staining substances such as coffee, teas, colas, tobacco, red wine etc. During tooth formation, consumption of tetracycline, certain antibiotics or excessive fluoride may also cause tooth discoloration.

Is Tooth Whitening Safe?

Yes, when monitored professionally and the instructions are followed there will be no damage to teeth, enamel or gums.

How Long Will It Take?

Generally the effects can be seen within one week for the in-office technique, and in about one month for the home bleaching technique. Some stains, like those caused by antibiotics, may require a prolonged course of treatment.

How Long Will It Last?

This depends on your lifestyle (tea, coffee, red wine etc.) but generally the effects should last up to 2 years. We advise patients to keep their bleaching trays as additional tubes of the tooth whitening product can be purchased for a ‘top-up’ as required.

Will It Affect My Fillings Or Crowns?

No, there will be no colour change to existing fillings (silver or white), crowns, veneers, inlays, bridgework etc. Some restorations may need to be replaced if they do not match the new colour of your teeth, and we will do our best to advise which ones this may be, but the final decision can only be assessed once the tooth whitening has been completed.

One of the best & friendliest practices around - both Stuart & his team are true professionals which has seen me keep returning for nearly 10 years now.
