Create a Beautiful Smile With Our Whitening Products
Finding the right whitening treatment can often be a daunting task as there are many options available including everything from stain removal to lightening internal pigments and restorative methods. In addition to this, other factors need to be accounted for including your lifestyle, the current shade of your teeth and what result you want to achieve. To help you make the right decision, we have listed some of the possible treatments below.
Professional Teeth Whitening
Carbamide peroxide gel is known as one of the most effective and highly regarded teeth whitening treatments. Provided with a custom-made tray, carbamide peroxide gel lightens the internal colour of your teeth to improve their appearance without affecting the structure of your teeth. We take a mould of your teeth to create a tray that perfectly fits onto your teeth. This can be worn overnight or in an approved one-two hour session. Results can be seen after 5-10 applications and the tray can be reused as often as desired.
Please note, the whitening treatments we provide change the colour of your teeth and will not have a whitening effect on teeth of any other material (plastic, glass, metal, porcelain, etc.). In these cases, slightly more invasive alternative whitening treatment will have to be discussed and considered.

Over the counter whitening products contain a lower strength of active ingredients compared to the ones prescribed by dentists, and although they may remove surface stains, they will not change the actual colour of your teeth. Or they may contain harmful ingredients which may cause damage to teeth and gums.
