Teeth Whitening


As our teeth discolor and grow duller with age, a whiter smile can give a more youthful appearance. A shining white smile isn’t just the privilege of the rich and famous. There are many ways that you, too, can dazzle your friends and family with a show-stopping smile.

Teeth whitening will only work on natural teeth and will not be effective on replacement ‘false’ teeth such as crowns, veneers or dentures. However, they can be replaced to match newly whitened teeth.

Quick and effective power whitening

ZOOM!™ one-hour teeth whitening is a whitening method performed by our dentists that is comfortable and affordable.

If you have been embarrassed by stained or yellowed teeth, this process results in significantly whiter teeth in a matter of minutes. Safe, effective, and very fast, this process can lighten your teeth by 6 to 10 shades in 45 to 60 minutes, and without sensitivity issues.

Whiten your teeth at home

Whiten trays are custom-made molds that fit over your teeth at night. You insert the whitening gel and watch as your teeth lose that dull, old look.

Professional home whitening treatment is a superior alternative to kits that can be bought over-the-counter because the mouth trays are designed to be a perfect fit, which allows the active gel to work more effectively. The bleaching agent is also stronger and offers enhanced lightening power.

We recommend you use our home whitening kits as, not only are they more effective, they also allow us to keep a close eye on your teeth and help avoid side effects such as gum irritation and tooth sensitivity.

Internal whitening

This involves placing a whitening agent inside a discolored tooth that has had root canal therapy, which means the inner part of the tooth (the ‘pulp’) has been removed and replaced with a rubber filling.


You can help maintain the whiteness of your teeth by avoiding food and drink that may cause staining, and brushing your teeth at least twice a day.

Teeth whitening does not give permanent results but home whitening trays can be reused if a top-up is necessary.
