Teeth Whitening

Teeth are stained by the food and drinks we consume. The natural bright white shade becomes darkened due to smoking, coffee and red wine. Simple and successful method of lightening the shade of your teeth is teeth whitening. The treatment includes your trays, gel and two or three visits. “Enlighten” is the leader in teeth whitening technology, but Boutique and POLA are good as well.


Enlighten evolution 3, the only whitening system in the world to guarantee VITA shade B1 on every case irrespective of starting shade. Evolution 3 combines near zero sensitivity with the predictability that the evolution system has always been known for. There are no lights, no dehydration whitening and no gingival protection. Evolution 3 in office gel is now 6% Hydrogen Peroxide which fully complies with the new EU legislation. Their fully integrated system has everything you need including impression materials, trays, home and office whitening gels, desensitisers, and Tooth Serum whitening.


Boutique Whitening is a safe, effective way to enhance your smile. Using the highest quality whitening gel, manufactured in the USA, you can be assured of fantastic results and a brighter, whiter smile.

By Day – Boutique Whitening Kit
By Day is a 6% hydrogen peroxide gel, containing potassium nitrate which is a proven desensitiser. Worn for only one hour per day, this gel is designed for patients who want a fast, comfortable and convenient solution to whiter teeth.
This gel releases large quantities of oxygen free radicals (which whiten the teeth) over a short period of time, therefore whitening the teeth, both quickly and safely.

By Night - Boutique Whitening Kit
By Night
is a 16% carbamide peroxide gel, containing potassium nitrate, which is proven desensitiser. Worn for 4 hours, or overnight, this gel is designed for patients who would prefer to not have their custom trays in during the day and would prefer to whiten whilst they are asleep. This gel releases oxygen free radicals (which whiten the teeth) over a longer period of time, due to its sustained release. This gradual approach will still give fantastic results, due the length of time the gel stays active.


Polaoffice – is the UK fastest blech. Only one session in the surgery is required. That means increased patient comfort, satisfaction. The unique 6% hydrogen peroxide formula ensures fast release of the peroxide ions to begin the bleaching process.
PolaDay and PolaNight are two home whitening systems that help you achieve the white confident smile you always wanted. The whitening can be done in the comfort of your own home within a couple of weeks. As a result you will have amazing and much whiter looking teeth.
The main difference between the two systems is the active ingredient used to whiten your teeth. PolaDay utilises hydrogen peroxide whereas PolaNight uses carbamide peroxide formula.
Depending on your needs and life style, your dentist will help you decide on the right treatment and you will have a special tray made for you to apply the whitening gel to your teeth. The tray allows for full, equal and uniform coverage of all teeth giving a full and uniform teeth whitening.
How long you need to wear the tray for depends on the system, and the degree of discolouration. Generally, with PolaDay, you will apply the treatment for up to 1 hour a day for a couple of weeks. PolaNight has been designed to be worn over night so you can whiten your teeth in the comfort of your bed as you sleep for 10-14 days. You will be surprised by the result!
