What does the treatment involve?

Consultation and assessment

If you are interested in whitening your teeth, the first step is to have an assessment with your dentist. We ensure you are suitable for the treatment and take photographs and impressions so your custom whitening trays can be made.



When your trays are ready, we show you how to fit them correctly and how to apply the whitening gel to achieve the best results. We take the time to answer any questions you may have and ensure you are fully happy by the time you leave the practice.


Whitening at home

You will need to wear your whitening trays and gel each day, as advised by your dentist. Most people choose to whiten their teeth overnight as they sleep, ensuring treatment does not get in the way of normal daily life or routines.



After 2-3 weeks of treatment at home, we see you for an appointment in the practice to view your results! We take another set of photographs and compare your new white teeth to your starting shade. Many of our patients are stunned at the transformation that has occurred in such a short time.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • How white will my teeth get?

    This will depend on your teeth – everyone’s teeth are different. If your teeth are heavily stained from coffee or smoking, you will probably see a big change. If your teeth are not heavily stained, the change may be a bit more subtle. Your dentist will be able to advise you on the likely results given your teeth. Greyish teeth tend to take longer to whiten than yellowish teeth.

  • How does tooth whitening work?

    The active ingredient (either carbamide peroxide or hydrogen peroxide) is broken down, allowing oxygen to enter the enamel and dentine, bleaching out the stains.

  • Do all teeth whiten evenly?

    There is an overall whitening of all teeth. The tips of the teeth usually whiten faster than the neck, near the gum. Sometimes whitening initially gives a frosty, chalky appearance to your teeth but this usually reverts to a more natural translucent appearance after several hours to several weeks.

  • Are there any side effects?

    Many of our patients have none. However, a few experience temporary sensitivity (dull or sharp) on the teeth and/or gums. The wear times can be shortened or made less frequent or topical desensitising toothpaste or gel can be used. We often recommend patients desensitise their teeth for a week before starting treatment. Avoid carbonated drinks, citrus foods and drinks for a few hours after treatment. Your dentist may give you a special gel or mousse to apply to your teeth to help with the sensitivity. It is also sensible to avoid very hot or cold food and drinks within the first 48 hours.

  • How often do you have to get your teeth whitened?

    Once your teeth are whitened it usually lasts 1-3 years, however some people prefer to have top-ups every 6-12 months. Top-ups work much more quickly though, so you don’t need to whiten for as long. Some people will whiten for 1 night a month to keep their teeth sparkling.

  • Is it better to get treatment now or wait until my teeth are more stained?

    It is better to get it done now as the stains will become worse and darker. The teeth will need more applications of bleach as stains will be harder to remove.

  • Are my teeth more easily stained now that they have been whitened?

    No, the chance of staining your teeth is not increased once they have been whitened, if you follow the post treatment care instructions sheet we give you. However, they are still susceptible to staining by the same things that made them stain in the first place; general ageing, red wine, smoking, tea, coffee, coloured foods etc.

  • Will my crowns and fillings get whiter?

    No, only your natural teeth will. You may choose to get your dental restorations, including crowns and fillings, replaced after whitening treatment if they no longer match.

  • Is it safe to whiten my teeth if I am pregnant or lactating?

    We don’t know as no studies have been done so we advise against whitening whilst pregnant or lactating.
