What To Expect

You can expect to see results after just two weeks. The duration of your teeth whitening results can vary from a few months to three years depending on various factors, such as smoking and drinking coffee, tea, or red wine.
Our Teeth Whitening treatment includes:
- Two appointments
- Teeth whitening solution and trays included
Things to know:
- Teeth whitening is exclusively offered as a private treatment.
- If you have any crowns, veneers, fillings, or dentures, it is crucial to consult with your dentist before undergoing any teeth whitening treatment. This ensures optimal results and prevents any complications.
- If you are considering Composite Bonding, we may suggest undergoing teeth whitening beforehand. This ensures that the bonding material matches the desired shade of your whitened teeth, saving you time and money that would be required if you decided to whiten your teeth after the bonding procedure. Keep in mind that once the bonding material is applied, it cannot be modified.
Professional, safe and effective teeth whitening

If you are considering teeth whitening treatment, we recommend you speak with your dentist first to avoid any long term effects on your teeth and gums.
Frequently Asked Questions
Is it possible for Teeth Whitening to cause or increase sensitivity?
Yes, some Teeth Whitening products can cause temporary sensitivity due to the exposure of the soft dentin layer beneath the tooth enamel. This allows the whitening agents to reach the nerve endings, leading to sensitivity for some people.
However, this sensitivity is typically temporary and tends to subside within a few days when using highly-rated whitening products. It’s important to note that unregulated or low-quality whitening products may result in more severe side effects, including chemical burns on the teeth and gums, as well as prolonged sensitivity. It is therefore always suggested to consult with a dentist prior to using any teeth whitening products, to ensure the ensuring the safest and most effective ingredients.
Is Teeth Whitening a permanent solution? How long does it typically last?
No, Teeth Whitening is not a permanent solution. However, the results of Teeth Whitening can generally last between 6 to 24 months. This will depend on several factors, including your oral hygiene practices, diet and lifestyle habits. To maintain a bright and white smile, you’ll need to look after your smile. This includes regular brushing, flossing and visiting your dentist for routine check-ups. By following these practices, you can prolong the longevity of your whitening results and ensure the overall health of your teeth. Our dental team is available to provide personalised advice. Please feel free to ask us about our recommendations or any concerns you may have regarding Teeth Whitening.
What kind of outcomes can I expect from Teeth Whitening?
The results of Teeth Whitening can vary depending on the initial condition of your teeth. While the treatment can effectively lighten the natural colour of your teeth, the extent of improvement may not always reach your desired shade in a single session, particularly if your teeth are heavily stained. In such cases, multiple sessions might be necessary to achieve the desired outcome. It’s important to note that Teeth Whitening only works on natural teeth and cannot alter the colour of crowns, veneers, or dentures. If you have any of these dental restorations and want to enhance the colour of your teeth, we recommend consulting with your dentist beforehand to discuss options.
