Teeth whitening is the process of removing stains and discolouration from teeth to make them look “whiter”. Using whitening gels is a highly effective way to lighten the natural colour of teeth or to restore the colour of teeth that have become discoloured and stained.

We can also supply you with a professional home whitening kit. We will take an impression (mould) of your teeth using a special dental putty use this to cast a model of your teeth from plaster to make your custom teeth whitening trays. You will use them in combination with professional whitening gel (supplied by us) until you are happy with the results. Depending on the teeth whitening system, some trays need to be worn overnight while others for only 1-2 hours a day.

Results of whitening will last longer with careful maintenance…

  • Avoiding excessive intake of tea, coffee, red wine, tobacco etc.
  • Use of ‘whitening’ pastes at home
  • Maintenance with your hygienist
  • The teeth will always be lighter than they once were
  • Some patients may wish to have a top up once or twice a year for 1-2 days

We would love to hear from you.
