Tooth Whitening

Tooth Whitening is the perfect finishing touch to your newly straightened beautiful smile, or simply as a stand alone treatment to enhance and build your confidence.

With our professional at home whitening treatment, you can achieve natural white teeth in a safe, reliable and long-lasting way.


How the tooth whitening treatment works

To start, special and comfortable custom-made dental trays – similar to retainers – are made by our orthodontists in the practice. They are then provided to you alongside a safe whitening gel for you to use in the comfort of youe own home.

A small amount of the whitening gel is placed on the inner surface of the tray on the area contacting the front of your teeth. These trays are then worn nightly, after tooth brushing, until the desired level of whitening is achieved, which is usually within a few weeks.


How to care for whitened teeth to help them stay white for longer

Your whitened teeth should last for up to three years, depending on how you care for your teeth after treatment. To prolong the results, we recommend:

  • Check ups with your dentist, including a regular scale and polish or appointment with a dental hygienist
  • Properly cleaning your teeth at home
  • Avoiding cigarettes
  • Reducing food and drinks which can cause tooth staining
