Teeth Whitening

Say goodbye to stained, yellow or discoloured teeth!

Tooth whitening is a successful and simple method of lightening the colour of your teeth. It is a simple technique, using gentle whitening gel to remove most stains, reversing the effects of ageing, coffee and tobacco. The gel releases active oxygen into the teeth, where it gently brightens discoloured pigments in dentine and enamel.

Alternatively if you do not want to have the full whitening treatment for heavily stained teeth, a procedure as simple as a scale and polish from our dental hygienist can significantly improve their appearance.

Could I just use a teeth whitening toothpaste?

For teeth whitening pastes to really work they would need to be in contact with your teeth for at least 15 minutes, which would never happen during the brushing process. Some teeth whitening toothpastes can even permanently damage your teeth as they contain acids or abrasives.

Professional Whitening
While some non-peroxide whitening products (for example toothpaste) can have an effect on teeth in terms of brightening, stain-removal, there is no substitute for the professional approach of your dentist.

We offer two options for whitening to suite everyone’s whitening requirements and budget:

Saber Tooth

Saber Tooth White has always aimed to provide the very best products for dentists, while also making the patient experience stylish and fun.

Night time home tray whitening comes in a handy kit form that you can use in the comfort of your own home. We make custom trays of your teeth and give you a professional kit to take home where the custom-made trays are filled with a bleaching gel and placed on the teeth before going to bed. In the morning the trays are removed, the gel rinsed away, and the process is repeated again the next night. Every person's teeth whiten at a different rate so after 2-3 weeks we'll check to see how your teeth are progressing. The whole process should take 6-8 weeks, but will need ongoing top-ups depending upon the amount of darker beverages (coffee, tea, cola, red wine) you drink.

Enlighten

The world’s best performing whitening treatments.

Enlighten Evolution Whitening is a combination treatment meaning that there is a 2 week home treatment followed by a 1 hour visit to the dentist. It works by increasing the tooth‘s permeability to oxygen which breaks down stain molecules.

Why enlighten?
Guaranteed whiter smile
The difference with Enlighten Whitening is the results. Follow your dentist’s guidelines and teeth will whiten beyond any other system.

How white will my teeth get?
Enlighten Whitening can whiten up to 16 shades. Results vary, but if used correctly all teeth will whiten dramatically. Natural teeth rarely look too white. Sometimes very white crowns can look wrong because they are made of porcelain.

Is it safe? Is there any pain?
It is completely safe. The materials used in Enlighten Whitening have been used in dentistry for over 100 years.

How long does it last?
Results can last indefinitely with some very simple maintenance. Wearing the trays for 1 night every other month. Continuing to brush with Tooth Serum will also prolong results.

How long does it take?
Two weeks after your dentist delivers your Enlighten Whitening trays. These are thin and comfortable and must be worn in bed for 14 nights. Then on the 15th day you need to see your dentist for the second treatment, which takes only 40 minutes.
