Tooth whitening is the most commonly prescribed cosmetic dental procedure in the world. When it comes to teeth, bright and white is beautiful!

There are many reasons for discoloured teeth such as genetics, trauma, diet, smoking, aging and medication. If you have had dental restorations such as front fillings, crowns or veneers done you may not be a good candidate for whitening, unless you are prepared to replace these with restorations of a lighter shade. Because of these factors, it is important that your teeth are assessed and whitened by a dentist rather than relying on over-the counter products or beauticians. This is not only for reasons of safety and effectiveness. Aesthetically, you should have professional guidance.

We offer a selection of whitening products which are available if your mouth is healthy and stable. Our preference for tooth whitening treatments is to use a gentle, gradual system of home whitening. We make special soft clear plastic trays to fit comfortably and precisely over your teeth. These are then filled with a whitening gel and kept in the mouth for periods from one hour to overnight.

Alternatively, if you want that radiant smile faster, our Zoom! chairside whitening system is an advanced tooth-whitening procedure that is safe, effective and convenient. And in one hour your teeth will become dramatically whiter. Find out more here:
