Teeth Whitening

Why undertake teeth whitening…?

  • You want whiter teeth for a healthy clean look.
  • You want whiter teeth for a special event.
  • You want a great smile with great teeth.
  • You want to remove wine and coffee stains.
  • You want to look younger.
  • You want to improve your confidence.
  • You want to be more attractive.



  • Brush and floss your teeth before your appointment.



  • Have teeth whitening immediately after having your teeth professionally cleaned. We recommend you wait 2 weeks.
  • Have teeth whitening if your gums are inflamed or if you have any mouth ulcers. Wait until they have healed.


  • Sit back and relax until your desired treatment length is complete.


What happens during teeth whitening…?

  • Your therapist will discuss with you whether you need the 20-minute session or the 40-minute session. It will depend on how stained your teeth are and the shade of white that you want to achieve.
  • Your therapist will use a simple three-step process combining LED cool blue light, a specially designed cheek retractor and a salon grade whitening gel formula.
  • Your teeth will be cleaned with activating spray and cleaning powder.
  • Your mouth will then be fitted with a device designed to hold open your lips and expose your teeth.
  • The teeth whitening gel is applied and activated with the LED cool blue light.


  • Consider using a teeth-whitening toothpaste in between treatments to help keep your teeth bright.
  • Maintain good oral health and hygiene to prolong your brighter, whiter smile.



  • Eat tomato-based sauces, curries or any heavily coloured food for 24 hours.
  • Drink red wine, Coca Cola or any coloured soft drink, tea or coffee for 24 hours.
  • Smoke for 24 hours.
  • Immediately after your teeth whitening session your teeth are rehydrating and are more likely to absorb coloured drinks, food and tobacco stains. If you forget and consume coloured food or drink or smoke, you must brush your teeth immediately. The general rule of thumb is – if it can stain a white T Shirt, it can stain your teeth.


What happens next…?

  • Good oral hygiene and regular brushing will help keep your teeth white.
  • However, we suggest you return within 2 months for another treatment and again after 6 months. You can always have additional treatments, particularly if you have a special occasion with photos and you want your smile to stand out.
  • Some of the minerals will have been removed from your teeth by the whitening process. This also happens naturally when you consume certain foods and drinks. However, as soon as the whitening treatment is completed, your teeth will quickly start to rehydrate and re-mineralise.
  • Your teeth whitening treatment can last up to 12 months. The length of time will depend on your lifestyle. Your teeth may become stained again if they aren’t properly maintained, or if you eat a lot of coloured foods or drink coloured beverages.
