Option 1: In-clinic Power Whitening

Using the latest products and techniques, power whitening in our dental clinic achieves incredible results quickly, effectively and safely. Because in most cases it takes just one hour to whiten your teeth, this is one of the most convenient options for busy people.

With so many of us being regular coffee, cola or red wine drinkers, stains can easily build up on our teeth. Unfortunately even the best brushing habits will only remove surface staining, and the colour of teeth will inevitably dull over time. Professional in-clinic power whitening is an easy and achievable way to improve your appearance and confidence.

What Does In-clinic Power Whitening Involve?

Our Dental Hygienists are experienced in in-clinic power teeth whitening. They will consult with you to find out what you would like to achieve, address any dental issues you may have and answer your questions.

How Does In-clinic Whitening Work?

A special gel is applied to your teeth which is activated by a xenon-halogen light, lightening your teeth to their optimum colour. The active ingredient carbamide peroxide is very effective in removing stains and discolouration on your teeth.

It’s common to experience increased tooth sensitivity with whitening procedures. If you suffer from sensitive teeth we recommend the use of a desensitising tooth gel.

 

Option 2: Teeth Whitening At Home

Our kits for whitening your teeth at home include thin custom-made mouth guards and whitening gel. The procedure consists of applying the gel into the mouth guards and wearing them for two hours per day in the privacy of your home. This whitening process can take several weeks. You will see a gradual lightening of the shade of your teeth, and you simply stop using the gel when you are happy with the shade.

If sensitivity is an issue this is a gentler process than in-clinic whitening. Again, we recommend using a densensitising tooth gel to alleviate any increased sensitivity you may experience.
