How Can I Improve My Smile, Affordably, Safely, And Quickly?

Teeth whitening is a simple, safe and effective, non-invasive treatment which is growing in popularity as more and more people, young and not so young, are experiencing the benefits it brings! Smile with more confidence and make a great first impression, every time.

Your Tooth Whitening Questions Answered
Many people get their teeth whitened and they don’t get the white teeth result they were after. You will not get the results if you have active, untreated gum disease or tooth decay, root sensitivity or mouth cancer. If you use too much or too little, you won’t get the result you need and you can damage your teeth and gums. This will cause pain, damage to teeth and gums and be more expense in the long run. This is why you get a Free Consultation with a Smile Advisor, so we can assess if you are a suitable candidate for teeth whitening.

Generally the effects can be seen within one week for the in-office technique and in about one month for the home bleaching technique. Some stains, like those caused by antibiotics, may require a prolonged course of treatment.
This depends on your lifestyle (tea, coffee, red wine etc.) but generally the effects should last up to two years. We advise patients to keep their bleaching trays and additional tubes of the tooth whitening can be purchased for a ‘top-up’ as required.
No, there will be no colour change to existing fillings (silver or white), crowns, veneers, inlays, bridgework etc. Some restorations may need to be replaced if they do not match the new colour of your teeth and we will do our best to advise which ones these may be, but the final decision can only be assessed once the tooth whitening has been completed.
