As we get older, our teeth become more porous and susceptible to staining, so they may begin to lose their sparkle. This discolouration can be caused by consuming dark coloured food and drink like coffee, tea and berries, or by smoking. These kind of stains are known as ‘extrinsic’ because they stain the outside of the enamel. It is also possible for our teeth to become discoloured ‘intrinsically’ due to certain medications that change the inner structure, damage to a tooth, or root fillings.
You may feel embarrassed about your discoloured teeth and keep them hidden with a strategically placed hand while talking, or refuse to smile for photos. We can help you smile freely again with our professional tooth whitening treatments.

The tooth whitening process
Before any whitening takes place, we will make sure your teeth are healthy and there are no underlying issues that could cause problems further down the line. We will also discuss what you hope to achieve from the whitening treatment, whether you want a subtle improvement or a dramatic transformation and we will tailor your treatment accordingly, carefully planning and colour matching the results.
Tooth whitening is suitable for most people, but restored teeth (those with fillings, crowns, bridges and veneers) cannot be whitened.
The effects of tooth whitening will be noticeable and you’re sure to be happy with the results, but we do recommend repeat treatments at regular intervals for optimum and lasting effects. The length of time between treatments will depend on your lifestyle and diet.
Once your customised trays have been produced you can re-use them by purchasing extra syringes of gel from us when required.
