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. A 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.

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 desensitizer. 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 a proven desensitizer. 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 to 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 utilizes hydrogen peroxide whereas PolaNight uses carbamide peroxide formula.
Depending on your needs and lifestyle, 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 depends on the system and the degree of discoloration. 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 overnight 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!

Terms and conditions:

Before you decide on booking a consultation there are a few things you should know about teeth whitening. It is a treatment that uses carbamide peroxide or hydrogen peroxide so an allergy to any of those is a contraindication to conduct the treatment.

This treatment is not recommended if you are pregnant or for patients under 18 years old.

If you had some dental treatments on the front of the teeth including large white fillings, veneers, crowns, bridges, partial dentures, implants, that could affect the results of the treatment.

To start whitening treatment, you need to be dentally fit so any dental work that could worsen the whitening process needs to be done prior to it.

The duration of the course differs on the person, but most patients notice a change within 1-5 weeks. For best results, it is suggested not to drink red wine, berries, or curries and to smoke cigarettes for up to 6 weeks after finishing the treatment.

Your teeth might become sensitive after a few days after starting the process which is completely normal. You should stop the treatment and restart the day later.

Please remember that you can reuse the trays in the future. All you need is another set of syringe gel that you can purchase online or at our clinic.
