Teeth whitening is a predictable, safe, non-invasive method of improving the colour of your teeth. We use the polanight system.
It is a convenient whitening solution that you can apply whilst you sleep. Before you start your whitening, we need to make sure the teeth and gums are all healthy and so we check this at your dental check up appointment. Then we take impressions of your teeth to custom-make your whitening trays. We give you the trays, syringes of whitening gel and application instructions. You then whiten your teeth at home for as many days as necessary to achieve your desired shade. Usually 5-10 days is sufficient. This should last you for 1 to 2 years. After this, the colour starts to fade back towards the original. However, if you keep your custom-made trays, you can buy more of the gel on your next visit to us.
The tooth whitening package is priced at £299.
You might be tempted by one of the many special offers on teeth whitening made by non-dental professionals. It is illegal for anyone other than dentists or their teams to carry out teeth whitening. Anyone else offering teeth whitening (e.g. beauticians, hairdressers, and salon staff) won’t have the right training and knowledge, could permanently damage your teeth and gums and can’t help you when something goes wrong.
For more information on the safety aspects of whitening your teeth, please see The British Dental Organisation’s top tips for patients.
The whitening process is only effective on natural enamel and dentine. If you have existing crowns or fillings, we can usually change these for lighter ones to match your new lighter shade afterwards.
Before you start whitening, your dentist will identify any visible restorations (crowns, veneers, fillings) which may need to be changed after the whitening treatment. We will discuss this with you at your consultation.
