Enjoy a brighter smile
It's never been easier to quickly and safely improve the appearance of your smile. Stained or discoloured teeth can be improved by teeth whitening treatments, which will have a huge impact on your appearance and boost your confidence.
Tooth staining or discolouration can often be caused by:
drinking black tea or coffee, sugary drinks, or red wine
eating foods like beetroot, cranberries or blackberries
taking certain medicines.
What to expect
1. PRE-WHITENING EXAMINATION
Whether you choose in-chair whitening or at-home whitening, you will first need to undergo a thorough dental examination, which will:
identify the cause of your discoloration
determine whether teeth whitening will be the most suitable and effective solution for you
assess whether your discoloration might be caused by an underlying dental issue, which should be addressed first.
2. PRE-WHITENING HYGIENE
Once good oral health has been established, and your plan for whitening has been agreed, you'll undergo a hygiene. This helps to remove tartar (superficial staining) so we can whiten your teeth more effectively.
3. WHITENING TREATMENT
Your whitening treatment will then be carried out or prepared by your dentist, depending on which treatment is selected.
Two kinds of teeth whitening treatments are available:
IN-CHAIR WHITENING: Your dentist will apply a whitening solution and use a bright light to activate the gel.
TAKE-HOME WHITENING: Your dentist will prepare a take home kit of whitening gel and trays that will be custom-fitted for you to use. Our gels contain fluoride, which remineralises the tooth surface to protect against tooth sensitivity.
The effectiveness of treatments vary between individuals.
4. POST-WHITENING CARE
Everyone is different and you may experience teeth and gum sensitivity for a few days after whitening, especially from in-chair treatments. If you feel that you are experiencing sensitivity or other symptoms, you should contact us so that we can advise the best course of action.
