Teeth Whitening Before & After

Am I suitable for teeth whitening?

We offer teeth whitening to anyone over 18 who wants to improve their smile, but this treatment isn't suitable for everyone.

Generally, teeth whitening gel is effective at removing stains caused by food and drink, tobacco and natural ageing. However, it's less effective at lifting stains caused by a health condition or medication. You also can't whiten fillings, crowns or other dental restorations.

If you're not eligible for teeth whitening, you may still be able to whiten your smile with dental veneers.

What causes teeth stains?

Our teeth naturally darken as we age, and some people's teeth are naturally less white than others. However, most teeth stains and discolouration can be prevented by making changes to your diet or lifestyle.

Food and drink with strong pigments or high acidity can cause stains to form, or weaken your teeth and make them easier to stain. This includes tea and coffee, red and white wine, soft drinks, fruit juices and other strongly-coloured foods and drinks.

Smoking or chewing tobacco can also cause teeth to stain, as can not brushing and flossing your teeth properly, which allows plaque to form.

Teeth can also be discoloured by injuries and trauma, certain health conditions or as a side-effect of medications, however these types of stains can't usually be treated with teeth whitening.

How much does teeth whitening cost?

We'll give you all the information about teeth whitening prices at your consultation, as this can vary depending on your needs. We'll also tell you about the payment plans we offer to help make your cosmetic dental treatment more affordable.

How does teeth whitening work?

If you decide teeth whitening is right for you, we'll first give you a complete oral health assessment to see if there are any other issues that need to be treated as a priority. We'll discuss your goals from teeth whitening, then we can start to create your custom whitening trays.

We'll take impressions (moulds) of your teeth that will be sent to a dental laboratory where your whitening trays will be made. We'll call you back for another appointment when they arrive, usually after a few days, and provide you with a teeth whitening gel formulated to the right consistency for your needs.

Following our instructions, you can begin the treatment at home by applying the whitening gel to the trays and placing them carefully over your teeth. This should be done for up to 2 hours each day for 2 weeks, or as long as we advise to get the results you want.

We'll book a follow-up appointment to check that you're happy with the results, and we're always on hand to answer any questions you have.

Teeth Whitening FAQs

Teeth whitening has been used for decades to improve the colour of the teeth. It is a very well researched topic with many dental studies proving that it is safe and non destructive dental treatment.

Changing the colour of teeth involves removing staining from the inside and outside of the teeth. This cannot be done using normal toothpastes. The best and most effective way to whiten your teeth is with professional teeth whitening with your dentist.

Provided your teeth and gums are healthy you should be fine to have your teeth whitened. Patients normally have to have a dental clean and dental check-up prior to have treatment to ensure the best result.

Costs will vary between $350 to $1500. Be wary of cheap teeth whitening offers as they may not provide the best materials or the correct quantities or whitening gel.
