Tooth Whitening

A bright, clear smile is attractive and confidence boosting, but over time teeth can become stained and discoloured. It is now possible to simply and effectively lighten the shade.

At your consultation, your teeth will be assessed to ensure that this is a good option for you. We also check that your teeth are healthy and there are no particularly sensitive areas or cavities that need to be dealt with first.

We recommend a lightening system called Enlighten which has the benefit of a guaranteed result.

The system uses accurately fitting clear acrylic ‘trays’ which fit over your teeth. You use these at home (usually at night) with the whitening gel which will be supplied over a period of one to two weeks. We sometimes need a final session in the practice to perfect the shade.

Any sensitivity after your tooth whitening treatment should subside soon after, but if sensitivity persists then there are de-sensitising solutions we can supply.
