Tooth whitening

Something to smile about!

Tooth whitening is a popular, safe and effective method of achieving a brighter smile.

For people who have healthy, straight but discoloured or darkened teeth it is a great option and preferential alternative to achieving a beautiful smile than much more expensive and invasive procedures such as crowns or veneers.

Home whitening procedure

After assessing and confirming your suitability for whitening, your dentist will take a mould of your teeth with a putty-like material (called ‘impressions’). From this ‘impression’ a vacuum formed custom-made tray will be made that fits closely around your teeth and holds the whitening gel.

Your dentist will ensure the trays are a perfect fit before showing you how to load them with the whitening gel provided and give you all the instructions you need; it really is very easy. Just wear the trays for a few hours each day as instructed by your dentist and you will quickly see a much brighter smile. Results typically take about 1 week but you can continue with the procedure until you achieve the desired result. Our starter kit includes 3 weeks supply of whitening gel. Any unused gel can be kept along with the trays and used at a later date to ‘top up’ the whitening if the teeth darken over time as a result of staining foods and drinks. We can also supply more of the gel if further ‘top up’ applications are required to allow you to maintain your desired white smile.
