Everything you need to know about teeth whitening

What is teeth whitening and how does it work?

We begin by producing a customised fitted gum mould of your teeth so that it rests comfortably in your mouth. To enable the whitening effect, a bleaching agent is applied to your mould. You then wear your tailor made mould for a few hours, or overnight, for up to two weeks to recognise the full effect of brighter looking teeth.

What are the benefits of teeth whitening?

  • Long lasting effects, teeth-whitening lasts for many years
  • Safe and customised procedure
  • Generally, teeth darken as you grow older, so a whitening procedure will manage this
  • Teeth whitening only works on your actual teeth, but has no effect on crowns and fillings. Sometimes your crowns or fillings can be aligned with your teeth whitening procedure for an overall enhanced smile makeover.
  • Natural teeth colour cannot be restored with regular whitening toothpastes as such toothpastes use different ingredients to professional teeth whitening procedures

How do I ensure my teeth whitening lasts?

Stains on teeth are the main impediment to brighter looking white teeth. However, brushing your teeth effectively twice a day has proved to reduce accumulation of stains. When brushing, be mindful to use a good whitening toothpaste which will prevent staining. Generally, teeth whitening treatment lasts for up to three years and if you are having difficulty preventing or removing stains, our dental experts can support you in providing you with advice and treatment plans to maintain your stunning smile.

Is the process painful?

During the teeth-whitening procedure, there is not usually any discomfort experienced by patients. Some patients who suffer from sensitive teeth and gums, can feel slight discomfort during the bleaching. Once the bleaching part is complete however, patients recover quickly to normal. In some rare cases, some patients’ teeth and gums become more sensitive during the whitening procedure but there is specialist toothpaste to help prevent such sensitive side-effects.

Is professional teeth whitening safe?

The teeth whitening professional procedure carried out by a registered dental professional is entirely safe. The British Dental Association has confirmed the procedure is safe and the bleaching agent manufactured by dentists have worked hard to ensure there is no harmful risk to patients’ teeth and gums in using this product. The procedure is cosmetic and aesthetically enhancing

Is teeth whitening expensive?

Our range of teeth whitening procedures are extensive and are priced at affordable rates, because we see no reason why everyone shouldn’t secure the benefits of teeth whitening.

Power Whitening

For patients who require simple and fast treatment, this type of teeth whitening procedure is most suitable. Teeth are whitened using the popular treatment called Zoom. This takes place at our dental practice and a coating which protects your gums and lips and a specialist gel is placed on your teeth. The bleaching process is activated once a light is directed over your teeth for around fifteen minutes. Within just an hour your teeth will look even brighter.

Home Whitening

With home whitening, we design a tailor-made delicate plastic tray which comfortably fits over your teeth. The home whitening tray is worn mainly during the night or for a couple of hours in day time. We provide a whitening gel which needs to be placed inside the tray for the whitening to take effect. You will see your teeth become whiter and brighter within approximately two weeks.
