Deep Whitening

  It involves 3 stages: 1. One visit to the practice for priming your teeth. 2. 2 weeks of special home whitening that you wear overnight. 3. Then the deep whitening in the final visit in the practice.  

In-Surgery Whitening Using the latest blue light technology and whitening solution, we can whiten your teeth in as little as an hour! Safe and very effective, your teeth will be between 6 to 8 shades lighter.We also offer a take-home kit to top up the initial whitening treatment (this has an added cost to you office treatment) You will be given instructions and advice on the best time to use this and the continuing results you can expect.Whitening your teeth will provide an instant lift to your smile to give you that extra confidence to show them off!What actually happens with in-surgery whitening?Your gums and lips are protected with barrier materials and a ‘before’ picture is taken. The whitening gel is applied on your teeth, and the blue light activates it. You relax. After three 8 to 20-minute cycles (just over an hour), the procedure is completed and an ‘after’ picture is taken. You rinse. You smile. Wow!How white will my teeth get?Clinical studies show that in-surgery whitening procedures deliver up to eight shades lighter and even higher for individuals with darker teeth. Results will vary as the starting points may be different and everyone’s teeth respond differently. During the consultation, we will go over what you can expect for your individual situation.What if I have sensitive teeth?About 10% of our clients may experience a dull ache following the procedure. Taking an analgesic almost always resolves the discomfort. It is best to avoid hot and cold drinks for the first 24 hours. We will provide you with an information sheet on how we can help you reduce the sensitivity as much as possible.Does it work with crowns, veneers or bonding?In-surgery whitening treatment cannot change the colour of your crowns, veneers or bonding. We will recommend the best course of action if we are whitening your teeth and are fitting crowns, veneers or bonding.How long does it last?On average, it lasts for 2-3 years, but the long-term results depend primarily on the individual. Certain habits, such as the use of tobacco products, drinking a lot of coffee, tea, dark soft drinks and infrequent visits to the dentist for regular cleanings etc. can work against the results.How do I keep my teeth white?Regular professional care can help maintain the whiteness for years. Some people may prefer to have the whitening procedure carried out every few years to maintain the whiteness or even simply topping up the whitening treatment with a take-home mini whitening kit.
