Teeth Whitening

Teeth whitening and advanced whitening

Most people would like a whiter and brighter smile. To achieve this safely and effectively, we recommend a teeth whitening treatment.  There are many reasons why teeth discolour including certain foods (red wine, coffee, tea), smoking and ageing.  To find out why your teeth have discoloured, please speak to your dentist.

We use the White Dental Beauty teeth whitening system. Once you have had custom made night trays made, you place the whitening gel inside the tray for either overnight wear or for a minimum of two hours during the day.  The teeth will gradually lighten over the next few days. Overall, the process takes approximately two weeks.

Some people have more severely stained teeth such as with tetracycline staining, or individually stained teeth, which requires more complex management.  If you have any queries about your discoloured teeth, your dentist will be happy to help.

You can help to maintain your newly-whiter teeth with regular visits to a dental hygienist.
