Teeth Whitening

Teeth whitening is a simple procedure which lightens the colour of your teeth to a desired shade. A variety of methods are available including home whitening which involves the use of a clear gum shield into which the whitening agent is applied and which is worn for about 45 minutes per day. The other method involves the application of a gel and laser treatment and is carried out in surgery to offer more immediate results.

 

Your dentist will advise you on the shade best suited to you and the appropriate treatment method.

Teeth whitening treatments lighten the teeth with the use of Hydrogen Peroxide (bleach). Whitening can be applied to the outside of teeth to brighten their appearance, or to the inside of the root canal for teeth that have had diseased roots.

Tooth coloured fillings and replacement teeth will not lighten with these treatments.

Teeth may be sensitive to hot and cold food and drink for a few days after the whitening treatment, but this is a temporary effect.

 

Teeth Whitening Trays and Gels

Your dentist can provide you with teeth whitening trays and gels that can be worn at home. These can be very effective, but results take longer to achieve than dental surgery whitening.

Your dentist will take an impression of your mouth and give this to a dental technician, who will build a bespoke tray to the exact measurements of your mouth. Your dentist will check that the tray fits and demonstrate how to carry out the procedure at home.

Patient Testimonials

Erika has been wonderful with my young daughter who accidentally chipped a piece off her front adult tooth. Erika was patient and caring, she took the extra time to explain the procedure and allowed for any questions and took it at a pace that suited my daughter.....the result is amazing, we are all pleased and most of all my daughter is now excited about going to the dentist!

I saw an advert for a free smile evaluation and having been so unhappy with my teeth for years, decided to go and have it done (not really thinking I would actually go through with any treatment) but as soon as I met Erika and she showed me what she could do with my smile I was instantly on board! You need to be committed to the regular check ups and make sure you wear the aligners but once you get going it becomes a habit and my treatment time flew by. All the staff are friendly and helpful and Erika was always on hand for any advice I needed.The results are amazing and so worth the money...I wish I'd had it done years ago!

Erika as always fantastic. I had a very nervous son who could be difficult to reason with. This has changed totally. My son will now happily go and see Erika and tell her the problem. A small filling today and wow Erika was fab, her nurse was great and my son has totally changed and sat on the chair and let her do all the treatment with no worries. Big thumbs up from us!! Thank you 😁😁

Went in for my normal 6 month check up today,Erica thoroughly cleaned and checked as usual and to my joy and surprise she asked if I would like to have my chip filled in on my front tooth. Without hesitating off she went. Thank you so much Erica, I honestly can't thank you enough. My wedding photos will look great now.....well at least my teeth will be!
