Tooth whitening is also known as bleaching, although we don't use bleach! We prefer patients to use the home bleaching method. At the first appointment we take impressions so that very small 'trays' can be made. These look like minimal transparent gumshields that just fit over the teeth and are filled with the bleaching material and worn at home for either two hours a day or overnight. At the second appointment we show you how to do this.
You are then in control over the extent of the whitening effect you want. We usually recommend that you just do the upper teeth first so the difference between 'before' and 'after' is obvious. You can then do the lowers to catch up.
The trays can be kept for any 'top-ups' that you might want, and will probably need, after about 18 months.
If you have any fillings in front teeth that show, you may find that these will not be affected by the process and will look darker than before. These will then need to be replaced for an additional cost.
If you book your whitening consultation online today, and you decide to go ahead with treatment, the £65 consultation fee will be deducted from your final whitening bill.
