Tooth Whitening

Gain confidence thanks to a brighter, whiter smile!

We’ve seen many of our patients grow in confidence thanks to a brighter, whiter smile.

The best way to keep your smile healthy and bright is to look after your teeth and gums. However, it’s not unusual to need a little help. Perhaps you smoke, or your teeth have been stained by tea, coffee or red wine. They may also lose their whiteness with age. Fortunately, our professional teeth bleaching treatment can repair discolouration quickly and safely without damaging the enamel or any other part of your teeth.

Why come to us?

Only dental professionals registered with the General Dental Council, like our dentists, are allowed to whiten teeth and you can be sure it’s safe and effective. Plus, you’ll have a helpful initial consultation where we will:

  • Check that your teeth and gums are healthy and suitable for whitening
  • Show you on a chart what shade of white you can expect to achieve and to ensure a natural-looking result
  • Give you an idea of how long it will take

Teeth whitening at home

Your dentist will give you a teeth whitening kit, with trays and gel, to take home. The tray should be worn as recommended by your dentist and most people wear them overnight. It may take a few weeks to achieve the shade of white you’re looking for.

How should you care for your teeth afterwards?

We recommend the following to help your results last as long as possible:

  • Regular check-ups with your dentist and visits to the hygienist for a scale and polish
  • Properly cleaning your teeth at home
  • Stopping or at least cutting down on smoking
  • Cutting back on foods and drinks which can stain your teeth

Is teeth whitening right for you?

You’ll need to be at least 18 and your teeth and gums must be healthy, so your dentist will check this for you. If you’re pregnant or breastfeeding, it’s best to delay having your teeth whitened because it’s not yet clear whether the bleaching products can affect the baby.

Bleaching products can’t lighten the colour of any crowns, veneers, bridges or dentures. If your dentist decides you’re not suitable for bleaching, you could consider veneers or crowns for any particularly discoloured or damaged teeth.

What about ‘over the counter’ home whitening kits?

Many UK pharmacies and websites sell teeth whitening kits or whitening strips to use at home. Just be aware that these products don’t always work, and some of them can permanently damage your teeth. We advise that you get teeth whitening done under the guidance of a dental professional.

Book a check-up

To make sure your teeth and gums are healthy enough for a home whitening treatment, you’ll need a check-up first . If everything’s in good shape, we’ll take impressions of your teeth so we can create your custom-made trays to use at home – they’re a bit like mouth guards. We’ll also discuss what shade of white you can expect to achieve

Collect your custom trays

When your trays are ready, you’ll come back to collect them as well as the bleaching gel to use at home. During the appointment, your dentist will make sure the trays fit correctly and comfortably, and show you how to use them.

Whiten your teeth at home

Now it’s over to you. Your dentist will talk to you about how long to wear the trays each day, which can be anything up to eight hours (in which case, most people opt to wear them overnight). The time will depend on your teeth and the shade of white you’re looking for.

Enjoy your brighter, whiter smile!

    A very friendly, welcoming and professional practice, very impressed with Ravi and all of his staff.

    Best dentist I have ever been to. Cannot recommend this practice, or Aarti enough. She's an absolute pleasure and fantastic at keeping me calm and letting me know what's going on. I've never trusted or felt so at ease at a dentist before and that was having two root canals done!

    Since having a 'break' from the dentist I returned to the practice due to a broken tooth. I have always been a nervous patient, but Aarti was very calm and reassuring and has provided great treatment. The procedures have been pain-free and I couldn't even feel the injection on my last visit! All the staff are very friendly and welcoming and I would highly recommend!

    Excellent dental practice. They are friendly, professional and do great dental work. I can't recommend them enough.

    They made me feel so welcome and calm. Couldn't give any more thanks for the help. I'm free from pain and ready for my next appointment. Amazing staff.
