Achieve a whiter and brighter smile
Teeth whitening is one of the most effective ways to change the colour of your teeth. Our teeth absorb stains from food, drink, and other lifestyle choices such as smoking. These deep-set stains cannot be removed by brushing alone, only teeth whitening can restore their whiteness.
Dentist-supervised teeth whitening is the best way to achieve whiter teeth without damaging the enamel. Damage to the enamel can lead to increased sensitivity, damage to the gums and uneven whitening. We recommend putting teeth whitening in the hands of the experts to achieve incredible results.
How does teeth whitening work?
Your dentist will make an impression on your teeth to create custom trays. You will then apply a whitening solution to the trays and wear them overnight for two weeks. At the end of your treatment plan, you’ll return to the dentist for one final whitening treatment.
The whitening solution penetrates deep into the tooth and breaks up the bonds between the staining particles. Once broken down, the stains can be flushed out, leaving your teeth looking whiter and brighter. Teeth whitening will also remove surface stains.
Who is a good candidate for teeth whitening?
If you have staining caused by food, drink or smoking, you could be an ideal candidate for teeth whitening. If your teeth are stained due to injury or trauma, or if you have medications that have left your teeth discoloured, teeth whitening might not be as effective.
If you are not a suitable candidate for teeth whitening, we can recommend alternative treatments such as veneers, crowns, composite bonding or dental implants. These treatments will conceal discolouration and protect the underlying tooth structure.
Does teeth whitening hurt?
While you should not have any pain during your treatment, there is the possibility of minimal discomfort. You may notice your teeth feel slightly more sensitive during the treatment, and may be more sensitive to hot and cold after a whitening treatment. This is because the small holes that allow the whitening solution into your teeth need to close again.
Unsafe teeth whitening is often associated with pain. If your whitening trays are not custom-made for you, there is a risk of getting the whitening solution on your gums which can cause burns. This is why we recommend professional teeth whitening to protect your oral health.
Upgrade your smile in one day
If you’re not confident with your smile, same-day veneers offer a quick and easy way to conceal minor imperfections and reveal a confident new you. Veneers are one of the most popular cosmetic procedures to quickly and dramatically change your appearance.
How do veneers work?
Veneers are thin shells of porcelain that fit over the existing teeth. Modern veneers require very little preparation of the underlying tooth structure, so they are excellent for protecting and maintaining natural teeth. Veneers can be used to make teeth look straighter and whiter. They can also conceal gaps, chips, cracks, discolouration, uneven edges and thinning enamel.
If you don’t feel 100% confident with your smile, veneers offer a fast and effective way to achieve a stunning transformation. This makes it the ideal treatment choice before a special occasion such as your wedding day or graduation. If you want to feel more confident with your smile, veneers offer a quick and simple solution.
Who is a good candidate for veneers?
You could be an ideal candidate for veneers if you have minor imperfections in your smile that you would like to conceal. If you have gaps, chips, cracks, discolouration or uneven edges in your teeth, veneers could offer a way to achieve a straighter, whiter and more even smile.
Before getting started with this treatment, we’ll need to check that you have healthy teeth and gums. This will improve your chances of success and ensure that your oral health is maintained.
How long do veneers last?
With proper care, veneers can last for many years. However, as they are a cosmetic treatment, they may need to be replaced or adjusted over time. We will always aim to achieve long-lasting results, but we will also provide you with advice on how to take care of your veneers to help them last for as long as possible.
You’ll need to follow our aftercare advice to help protect your veneers from damage. Since they are made from porcelain, they will be at risk of chipping or cracking. Eating certain foods can increase the risk of this happening. Habits like chewing ice can also damage your porcelain veneer.
Same-day smile transformations
Minor imperfections can damage your confidence. Chips, cracks, discolouration, thinning enamel, gaps and crooked teeth can make it difficult for you to smile with confidence.
Composite bonding is a revolutionary new treatment that can fix minor imperfections in just one visit. Instead of creating a porcelain crown or veneer, the material is applied directly to the teeth and shaped. This also means minimal preparation of the underlying tooth structure.
How does composite bonding work?
Composite bonding uses a resin material, similar to that used in white fillings. Your teeth are prepared to allow the composite material to bond to your teeth. The composite resin is then carefully colour matched to the surrounding teeth.
The material is applied directly to the tooth, shaped and then hardened with a UV light. You can leave the practice with a dramatically different smile the same day, with no need to wait for crowns or veneers. You can have composite bonding applied to a single tooth or multiple teeth to create subtle but impactful changes to your smile.
What can composite bonding fix?
Composite bonding is ideally used for minor imperfections. This can include chips, cracks and uneven edges. It can also change the shape of a tooth, making it appear straighter, which can be a great alternative to veneers. Composite bonding can close gaps in your smile, which makes it an excellent alternative to braces.
In cases of thinning enamel, the ends of your teeth might appear darker and have jagged edges. Composite bonding will not only help to improve the appearance of thinning enamel, but it will also help to protect the underlying structure. And finally, composite bonding can also make your teeth appear whiter. This is ideal if you are unable to whiten your teeth with traditional teeth whitening.
Do you offer composite veneers?
By applying composite bonding to multiple teeth, it’s possible to create the illusion of a veneer, without the need to prepare the underlying tooth structure. If you are on a budget, this type of treatment can be a welcome alternative to porcelain veneers.
The benefit of a composite veneer is that it isn’t permanent. The composite material will wear down over time, which will give you the opportunity to decide if you would like to invest in veneers or reapply the composite bonding treatment.
