Tooth whitening

Is it safe?

  • The safest way to whiten your teeth is by using gel prescribed by dental professionals. Whitening products that you can buy outside your dentist contain very little or no active ingredient to whiten your teeth.

  • Some products may contain harmful ingredients such as lemon juice, citric acid, and bicarbonate soda to dissolve stains . This can be very damaging to teeth in the long term

Is it harmful?

  • Professional products contain safe levels of hydrogen peroxide which are more effective, gentle on enamel and custom made.

How does it work?

  • The tooth absorbs the hydrogen peroxide and breaks down the colour molecule to turn the tooth white from the inside as well as removing the stains from the outside.

Will it hurt?

  • Some transient sensitivity is normal however this can be reduced dramatically with the addition of desensitising agents. We provide our patients with Zoom! Take home gels. These have a unique desnsitizer that is shown to reduce sensitivity without compromising on whitening result.
