Teeth Whitening FAQ’s

What Is Teeth Whitening?

Teeth whitening can be a very effective way of lightening the natural colour of your teeth without removing any of the tooth surface (enamel). It will lighten the existing shade of your teeth by up to 16 shades.

Who Cannot Have Teeth Whitening?

Anyone who is currently suffering from gum disease. It is essential that if you have any signs of gum disease you should be seen by your dentist before attending any teeth whitening appointments for advice.
We also recommend that pregnant women or women who are breastfeeding do not have their teeth whitened.

How Long Does An Appointment Take?

Appointments only take between forty five minutes and one hour, you can expect three fifteen minute sessions consecutively.

I Want A Natural Looking Smile Is Teeth Whitening For Me?

The finished shade of your teeth cannot be predicted, however, throughout the appointment, the shade change of your teeth can be monitored and once the desired shade has been achieved the process may be stopped. We find that the best and longest-lasting results will always be with the full sixty minutes under the light.

I Have Crown/Caps/Filling/Veneers, Can I Have Teeth Whitening Appointment?

Yes, you can! The teeth whitening procedure will restore crowns, caps, fillings or veneers to their original colour and will not cause any damage. Please note that the process will not whiten them more than their original colour.

How Long will the Results Last?

For most people, we find that the results are long-lasting. It’s important to remember that exposure to heavily staining food and drinks such as coffee, red wine and curry as well as tobacco will darken teeth.

Your teeth should stay noticeably whiter for a considerable amount of time after having a laser teeth whitening appointment. We also offer an excellent aftercare range to help you keep your perfect white smile!

Is Teeth Whitening Painful?

This is the question that concerns most people. The majority of people find the process completely painless, however, a small percentage of people experience temporary sensitivity to hot or cold for 24 – 48 hours following their appointment.
