Teeth Whitening

As we age, our teeth start to discolour and can stain from certain foods and lifestyle habits. Teeth whitening allows you to achieve a brighter smile by lightening the natural colour of your teeth.

What does teeth whitening involve?

First, we need to assess if you are a candidate for teeth whitening. It is a procedure that lightens the teeth but does not remove stains and may cause tooth sensitivity. After confirming that you are suitable for the procedure, the practitioner will apply a shield over the gums to protect them during the process. Next, we apply the whitening product to your teeth in a specialised tray. We use a blue light to activate the whitening agent.

How long does the procedure take?

If you are a suitable candidate and don’t have any existing tooth sensitivity, the entire procedure typically takes about 90 minutes. However, if you do experience some sensitivity, the procedure can be broken up into intervals of 15 minutes.

What are the benefits of teeth whitening?

Professional teeth whitening can effectively lighten your natural teeth by 8-10 shades brighter and last 1-2 years.

It is an effective way to achieve a brighter smile in a short period.
