Often the consumption of food and in particular drinks such as tea, coffee, red wine can result in our teeth becoming discoloured. Smoking can also cause discolouration and yellowing of teeth.

We can help you restore your teeth to their natural colour.

Home Whitening
This simple home procedure uses hydrogen peroxide to bleach or whiten the teeth. Your dentist or hygienist takes a mould of your teeth so a technician can prepare a gum shield or tray of exactly the right size and fit. Once the tray is ready, your dentist will provide you with the whitening gel and important advice on how to use it. Your teeth may achieve the desired colour within a couple of days, but it may take up to three weeks.

Off-the-shelf home whitening kits are not advisable as the trays are not custom made to exactly fit. This can allow the bleaching gel to come into contact with your gums and may cause irritation. There have also been reports that the bleaching gels in such kits may not achieve the desired results.

Whitening in the Surgery
This option provides a more immediate result and is delivered in surgery under the care and supervision of your dentist or hygienist.

Treatment takes around an hour and requires the use of a laser light technique along with a whitening gel.

Both teeth whitening treatments are only suitable for healthy teeth and gums, so your dentist or hygienist will thoroughly examine your mouth before treatment begins. You need to be aware that the gel does not whiten crowns, fillings and veneers.

In addition, the whitening effect is not usually permanent and overtime your teeth will gradually fade back to their original shade. However, the use of a top up treatment will usually whiten them up again.
