reason is simple, these chemicals can be dangerous. Those used in
teeth whitening procedures are no exception. Home kits and treatments
provided by non-professionals can differ from those available through

become stained in two ways, either on the outside of the tooth or
from the inside. Enamel is built up like a scaffolding network and
over time, stains from the food we eat accumulate, and get trapped in
this network, so causing the tooth to look darker. The tooth can be
stained from the inside too, for example following trauma to a tooth.
tooth whitening can remove these deep and surface stains by breaking
them up so that they simply dissolve away, making your teeth look
whiter. They also lighten the natural colour of the dentine at the
same time. A specially and carefully formulated gel containing
Carbamide Peroxide is used to achieve this.
It Damage My Teeth?

erosion). We use a whitening solution that is slightly alkaline (the
opposite of acid) and as such, causes no damage to teeth.

from your front teeth, however this tends to go away after the first
2 or 3 applications.

de-sensitising gel to help things along.
Long Does It Last?
average, results are maintained for approximately 18-24 months before
you may notice your teeth becoming slightly darker. Diets high in
coffee, tea, red wine and smokers (to name a few) will last less time
than those who avoid them.
beauty of this treatment is that if you feel your teeth have become
darker, it can be reversed by a short, ‘top up‘ course to achieve
your desired shade once again.
