What To Expect
Our dentist will take an impression of your teeth to create a custom-fit whitening tray. You can use this tray with a whitening solution at home, putting you in control of your shade change.
Results can be seen within just two weeks, and the effects of teeth whitening can last from several months to three years, depending on factors such as smoking and consumption of coffee, tea, or red wine.
Our Teeth Whitening treatment includes:
- Two appointments
- Teeth whitening solution and trays included
- Teeth whitening is exclusively offered as a private treatment.
- If you have any crowns, veneers, fillings or dentures, it is important to consult with your dentist prior to undergoing any teeth whitening procedure to ensure optimal results and prevents potential complications.
- If you are planning to get Composite Bonding, we may advise you to undergo teeth whitening beforehand. This ensures that the bonding material matches the desired shade of your brighter teeth, saving you time and money. Keep in mind that once the bonding material is applied, it cannot be altered.
Professional, safe and effective teeth whitening
The General Dental Council (GDC) emphasises that tooth whitening should only be performed by registered dental professionals after a thorough assessment to determine suitability and potential risks involved.
If you are considering teeth whitening, we strongly recommend consulting with your dentist first to prevent any long-term effects on your teeth and gums.
Frequently Asked Questions
Can Teeth Whitening cause or increase sensitivity?
Yes, it is possible for Teeth Whitening to cause sensitivity in some cases. Certain Teeth Whitening products can temporarily increase sensitivity by exposing the underlying dentin layer beneath the tooth enamel. This allows the whitening agents to reach the nerve endings, leading to sensitivity for some individuals.
However, it’s important to note that sensitivity is usually temporary and tends to subside within a few days when using high-quality whitening products. Please be aware that unregulated or low-quality whitening products may carry a higher risk of severe side effects, such as chemical burns on the teeth and gums, or prolonged sensitivity.
To ensure a safe and effective Teeth Whitening experience, it is recommended to consult with a dentist before using any whitening products.
Is Teeth Whitening a permanent solution? How long will it last?
No, Teeth whitening is not permanent. However, the results of Teeth Whitening typically last between 6 to 24 months on average. The overall duration depends on various factors, including your oral hygiene habits, dietary choices, and lifestyle.
To extend and maintain a bright and white smile, it’s important to take proper care of your oral health (including regular brushing and flossing) and consult with your dentist for regular check-ups and personaised advice.

What kind of results can I expect from Teeth Whitening?
The results of Teeth Whitening can vary based on the initial condition of your teeth prior to the treatment. While it can certainly lighten the natural colour of your teeth, the extent of improvement may not always reach your desired shade in a single session, especially if your teeth are heavily stained. In such cases, multiple sessions may be necessary to achieve the desired outcome.
Please note that Teeth Whitening is effective only on natural teeth and cannot lighten the colour of dental restorations such as crowns, veneers, or dentures. If you have any of these dental restorations and wish to enhance the colour of your teeth, we recommend consulting with your dentist beforehand. They can discuss your options and provide appropriate guidance.
