Teeth Whitening

Teeth whitening is a very common treatment of choice when it comes to improving the appearance of discoloured teeth.

Teeth can be discoloured due to various reasons which include smoking, consumption of excessive amount of caffeine, sugary drinks, poor oral health and can be sometimes side effects of medications.

Where it can be done?

Teeth whitening products are everywhere and can be done at home, salons, kiosks in shopping centres and dental clinics etc but the main advantage of dentists is that they are qualified to assess the overall state of your teeth, including taking a dental history and to assess any underlying problems that could be causing discoloration of your teeth and, if applicable, provide you with a whitening treatment to ensure the best results for you.

What do the whitening products consist of?

Whitening products use the bleaching agent called hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide which helps to lighten the colour of your teeth.

Only registered dental practitioners can legally use the highest concentration of bleaching agents to provide you with the most effective and safe results.

How much time it usually takes?

Whitening can be done in two ways and our dentist will suggest you the best option depending on your time, need and affordability.

In-office whitening

In office whitening can be done in the dental chair.

It is a powerful and fast way to whiten your teeth. The main component, hydrogen peroxide, will penetrate the teeth and whiten them deeply.

It usually takes one hour. You can just sit and relax in the dental chair while we will be doing all the procedure.

Take-home whitening

Take-home whitening can usually take two visits and during the second visit, we will hand you over your custom trays and four bleaching gels to use over one month. Take home whitening tray gives you the power to control whitening yourself.
