Our home whitening kits enable you to whiten your teeth in the comfort of your own home. This will involve us making you a customised whitening tray composed of soft, clear plastic which can have the whitening gel applied to it.
First your dentist will be able to tell you if you are suitable for the treatment, and will supervise it if you are. You will need two or three visits to the dentist. Your dentist will need to make a whitening tray and will take impressions for this at the first appointment.
Once you have received your tray, your dentist will instruct you how to use it.
The 'active ingredient' in the product is usually hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide. As the active ingredient is broken down, oxygen gets into the enamel on the teeth and the tooth colour is made lighter. The total treatment can usually be done within two to four weeks.

Frequently Asked Questions
Is it bad to get your teeth whitened?
Not all stains can be lightened by over-the-counter or professional bleaching, and your dentist will be able to give you guidance. If you have sensitive teeth, gum disease or teeth with worn enamel, your dentist may discourage tooth whitening.
How can I look after my teeth once they have been whitened?
We recommend the following tips to care for your teeth:
- Brush your teeth twice a day with a fluoride toothpaste
- Cut down on how often you have sugary foods and drinks
- Visit your dentist regularly, as often as they recommend
