What is tooth whitening?
Tooth whitening uses medical grade hydrogen peroxide (bleach) to lighten the colour of your teeth.
There are three ways to whiten your teeth:
Prefillled disposable trays
These are pre-made trays designed for single use only
Custom made trays
Slimline soft trays that fit to the shape of your teeth. You apply the whitening gel for 1 hour per day each evening for approximately 2 weeks
In chair bleaching
Your teeth are bleached in surgery, giving an immediate result (takes approx 2 hours)
Can I have my teeth whitened?
Tooth whitening will only whiten natural tooth. Any fillings and crowns will not be affected, so may need replacing to match.
The main side-effect of whitening is increased sensitivity, this can be counteracted by using sensitive gels, and using the kit every other day.
