FAQ’s

 

We have listed some frequently asked questions if you have a question we have not answered please do not hesitate to contact us.

 

How white will my teeth go?

We look for a minimum of 5 shades whiter but get an average of 8 shades whiter from your starting shade

This is dependent on the type of staining and the mineral content contained within your teeth so results will, therefore, vary between individuals.

Generally speaking, we will get your teeth to as white as they were when you were a teenager or as white as they can naturally go, either way, you will have shiny white teeth.

How long does it take?

The treatment itself takes under an hour, but when you come please allow extra time so we can go through everything with you and do a small consultation to access suitability.

You will see the results immediately after you have finished.

Will I feel pain or sensitivity?
No, you should not experience any pain or sensitivity with our treatments.
 
How long does the treatment last?
The results last depending on your lifestyle, however, on average, it would last about 1 year before you come back to the original shade and build up more stains.
Is the process harmful to teeth?
No, the effect on teeth is no different from the effect of commonly ingested foods or regular dental procedures.
Our Professional Teeth Whitening system has been proven to have no short or long-term negative effects on the enamel of teeth, on the dentin of teeth or the gums. In fact, it is specially formulated to improve general oral health, while whitening.
I'm getting married...when should I get my teeth whitened?
Usually, a good time to come in and get your teeth whitened would be about 3 weeks before getting married.

If you wish to have them whitened sooner we would suggest to have them done and then use your free or discounted top-up again maybe a week before the wedding this way you will already know where we are and what to expect.
 
Will the treatment whiten crowns, veeners or false teeth?

The treatment is NOT designed to whiten caps, crowns or false teeth, it will, however, clean and restore the false teeth back to their original colour. It will remove all stains and plaque that may have built upon them and the natural teeth will be whitened as normal.

Over time the false teeth or crowns will tend not to discolour as much as your natural teeth.

If the crowns have been in for 4 years or more then you will probably notice the shade difference and when the treatment is done the teeth will get whitened back to the shade that they were when the crowns were put in.

In any case, we will always do a no-obligation consultation to make sure that we will achieve the desired results, which quite often will differ from person to person, depending on your own personal preferences. we can tailor each treatment for each individual.
If you are planning to have a crown, bridge, filling or false tooth, it is recommended that you first have your teeth whitened – Your dentist will then be able to match the shade of the false tooth to your new colour.

Do I need to get my teeth cleaned by a dentist before treatment?

Although it is not necessary to have a scale and polish specifically prior to getting your teeth whitened, we would, of course, recommend your regular visits to the dentist so just go whenever you are due.

Any stains that have built up on the teeth will all be removed during the whitening treatment, but this is not a replacement for having a scale and polish as we only whiten about 18 front-facing teeth that are in the natural smile and we cannot remove any built-up plaque.

It would be necessary for you to have a scale and polish prior to having your teeth whitened if you have visible calculus (or tartar) built up on the outside of the teeth.

Other then that just floss and brush on the day before coming in.

How soon can I get an appointment?
