Everyone wants whiter looking teeth. Even with brushing, over time teeth can become stained due to a variety of factors. Plaque, coffee, red wine and food colourings can all darken our teeth. Smoking, trauma and certain medications can also have a similar effect. The tooth whitening procedure counteracts these stains and helps to give you a glowing smile.
Am I suitable for tooth whitening?
Tooth whitening is a safe procedure and has been used for many years. There are almost no contraindications to the procedure, however, we would advise you not to proceed with treatment if you are pregnant or breastfeeding. Your teeth and gums should be healthy prior to whitening.
How white will my teeth go?
This depends on a lot of factors such as teeth composition, age, and how white your teeth are already. The average improvement with whitening is between eight and ten shade changes.
How much does Teeth Whitening cost?
Our whitening packages start from £275. We offer an initial no obligation consultation free of charge. Here our dentists will assess your suitability for treatment and talk through expected results. We will provide you with your full options for treatment and allow you to make your choice.
I have white fillings, crowns or veneers at the front of my mouth do they whiten?
Unfortunately dental work such as veneers and crowns don’t whiten and may need to be replaced after your whitening if you would like these old restorations to match your new whiter smile!
How do you whiten my teeth?
There are several different methods to lighten the shade of your teeth. Our dentist will discuss the most suitable for you at your consultation visit. Some patients gain best results from using a home whitening gel we provide for use with our specially made trays. Others will benefit from treatment in surgery which can be completed in an hour. Occasionally a combination of the two is required.
Do I need to visit you before my appointment?
Yes we always do an initial consultation before your appointment, this involves assessing your suitability, explaining the procedure and likely result. Examples of patient treatments will be shown.
