Teeth Whitening

A beautiful, bright, healthy smile can take years off your appearance and truly boost your confidence. Teeth whitening offers an affordable and fast way to transform your smile and mood. As you age your teeth are often darker due to changes in the tooth’s minerals. Teeth can also get stained by dietary habits like coffee, tea or red wine.

  • We believe it is important for our patients to have all the facts before their teeth are whitened.
  • We verify that your gums are healthy.
  • We will give you all the information about the pros and cons of the various whitening treatments available.
  • We provide you with professional advice about the right shade for you.
  • Before starting treatment, some stubborn stains may need to be removed by our hygienists to achieve the desired result.
  • We inform you about aftercare and how to keep your new, brilliant smile intact.

Teeth whitening is a very effective treatment for the vast majority of patients. It is considered safe and does not damage the structure of the teeth. The only side effect reported is temporary sensitivity to the teeth that decreases after a few days.

We’ve tried and tested a number of the available professional products and concluded that Optident and Enlighten Teeth Whitening are the best systems on the market. Each treatment is described below.

Enlighten Teeth Whitening

Enlighten’s Evolution professional teeth whitening treatment is the only system that whitens up to 16 shades easily and safely and will give you a dramaticly different look. We are an accredited Enlighten Tooth Whitening Centre.

The system uses state-of-the-art materials which are of such high quality that even the highest gel concentration used is safe on the gums. Other whitening treatments require the use of a barrier on your gums and lips to protect them from being damaged. With Evolution there is no need for gum protection.

What is the Enlighten process?

  • First impressions are taken and sent to the Enlighten laboratory who create high quality, bespoke sealed bleaching trays for you.
  • This takes about two weeks, during this time you will use their Tooth Serum toothpaste instead of your normal toothpaste. It will improve the final whitening effect and also protect your teeth and reduce and sensitivity.
  • Once the bleaching trays are ready you collect them along with your home whitening kit. You will whiten your teeth at home every night for two weeks. Continue using the Tooth Serum toothpaste twice a day.
  • Finally you return once more for a 40-minute treatment in the surgery. This final treatment will boost the shade and ensure that the whitening is even and will help the colour last longer.

Opalescence Teeth Whitening

We also use Opalescence White Dental Beauty gels from Optident because they are carefully formulated to maintain a neutral pH, contain water to avoid dehydration of the teeth and include a desensitising agent.

Take Home Opalescence : your dentist will create custom-whitening trays for you to take home and you will be given whitening gel to use with the trays at home. You can whiten when you want, ideal for those who want a flexible whitening experience.

“At the Dentist” Opalescence : There are times when you may want your teeth to be whitened faster. In office whitening is a 1-2 hour procedure administered by your dentist. After whitening, we will also send you home with some trays to maintain your results at home.
