For a brighter more youthful smile.
Tooth Whitening is one of the easiest and quickest ways to improve and brighten your smile. Over time teeth can pick up staining from a number of factors including diet, smoking and drinks.
Whitening works by removing staining from within the teeth to give them a more youthful appearance.

IS TOOTH WHITENING SUITABLE FOR ME?
Tooth whitening is safe and suitable for use on the majority of people. It is normally possible to remove stains from most teeth- even those that are considered dead due to root damage.
Teeth with particularly bad staining as a result of tetracycline or fluorosis may not respond to treatment- or may require several doses.
Crowns, bridges or fillings on front teeth cannot be whitened and may need to be changed to match your whitened teeth.
Treatment is usually pain-free although you may notice a slight increase in sensitivity of the teeth and gums which should improve once treatment is finished. We advise on using a sensitive toothpaste during your treatment.
IS TOOTH WHITENING SAFE?
Yes, when performed by a qualified dental health professional tooth whitening is safe. A dental exam before whitening will ensure we can determine if you have any specific problems that could harm you during whitening or any reasons why whitening may not work. You should avoid the use of home kits which can be bought easily online. Take professional advice first.
