The most effective way to whiten your teeth

We all want white, glowing and healthy looking teeth – whether that’s for a one off occasion or for our day to day life. Often people will turn to teeth whitening as a solution to this. Done properly, it is a great way to enhance your smile and boost your confidence.

However, consumers are buying a variety of powders, paints, strips, gels, gadgets and kits to use at home, often after seeing posts on Instagram and Tiktok. Although a product may have glowing reviews, it does not necessarily mean it is safe for you to use on your teeth.

Often in the hands of inexperienced people, teeth whitening can be extremely harmful. This is why we implore you to visit a dentist (like us!)

Here are the three stages involved in the most effective way to whiten your teeth. 

Pre-treatment

It is important to find out from your dentist whether your teeth are suitable for whitening before you even begin.

  • Children under 16 should not whiten their teeth as baby teeth can be more vulnerable than adult teeth. Unfortunately they could have access to teeth whitening home kits if bought online, which is dangerous to the health of their teeth.
  • You will need a dental examination of your teeth and gums before treatment to ensure your mouth is healthy enough for whitening to work safely and effectively.
  • Teeth whitening will not work on dentures, veneers, crowns or fillings. 

Effective Whitening Treatment

Treatment should always be completed with the guidance of a professional, dental practitioner. Although more expensive, it is better to pay more and keep your teeth healthy than buy a cheap knockoff and have problems with sensitive teeth or stripped enamel in the future. 

We offer a variety of effective and safe whitening treatments, depending on your preferred method:

Enlighten Whitening teeth whitening

  • There’s a B1 guarantee for your results which has been evident in 98% of cases (Shade B1 is the whitest naturally occurring shade currently available in the market).

Zoom! 1 Hour Treatment

  • Our office 1-hour power whitening can whiten teeth by several shades, brightening your teeth dramatically to their natural shade.

Zoom! Home Whitening Kit

  • Our kits allow you to whiten your teeth from the comfort of your own home. A whitening gel is placed in a custom-made tray, which you wear whilst asleep or for short periods during the day.

After Care

This is an important step that is often overlooked with whitening treatments bought online. To keep your teeth both looking good and feeling healthy, you need to follow the proper after care.

  • Ensure you leave the appropriate amount of time between whitening treatments.
  • Use a top-up kit (which you can use as the whitening starts to fade) which we will explain how to use at home.
  • Listen to your dental practitioner’s advice.
