Teeth Whitening FAQ:

How long will the results last?

Results usually last 3-6 months depending on teeth structure, hygiene and oral habits.

How many sessions will I need?

Usually one appointment is needed depending on how stained your teeth are. In some cases another appointment is needed 2 weeks after the initial session due to heavy staining or very little differences seen after the session as a result of strong enamel, this will be discussed at your appointment. Results are immediate.

How much of a difference will I see?

You will generally see your teeth get 2-12 brighter. We do not guarantee results as we cannot predict how white the teeth will get. Before and after photos will help you match the shade difference.

Does it hurt?

Whitening will not hurt your teeth. If you already have sensitive teeth, this will not enhance the sensitivity. Remineralizer applied after the treatment coats and protects teeth after the appointment to prevent sensitivity. We also have Vitamin E oil that can help sensitivity as well.

How often can I have the procedure completed?

To keep enamel safe, we recommend that the client can have two full treatments within 4 weeks (if no sensitivity after the first treatment), then wait at least 3-4 months in between for future sessions.

Will this work on crowns and fillings?

Yes, teeth whitening will remove staining from existing dental work and restore it back to its original shade. We cannot whiten them beyond the original color of the material used at the time of placement. If there are any food or drink stains on the cosmetic cap, crown, or filling they will lift. However, the original color of the filling, cap, veneer, or crown cannot be altered.

Will all of my teeth be whitened?

No. Teeth Whitening is a cosmetic procedure and we only whiten the teeth that are visible. Whitening full rows of teeth will cause lots of irritation to the buccal mucosa (inner cheek lining).

Can I whiten if I have braces?

Unfortunately no you can't. Whitening will interfere with the adhesive holding your braces.

I'm pregnant/breastfeeding, can I whiten my teeth?

Unfortunately no, we do not recommend while you're pregnant or breastfeeding.

What is the recommended age for teeth whitening?

We don't recommend whitening for anyone under the age of 18. Their pulp (nerve) is still exposed and will be sensitive.

I have holes in my teeth, can I still whiten?

We don't recommend whitening while you have holes in your teeth. If your teeth aren't in a healthy state we recommend seeing a dentist for advice first.

Is there anyone who can't whiten?

We don't recommend whitening for the following: Children under the age of 18 as the pulp (nerve of the tooth) is enlarged until this age and whitening will cause irritation and sensitivity. Pregnant and breastfeeding. People with health related issues- e.g. Colitis or Crohn's as these health issues can cause damage to your enamel. We recommend seeking advice from a dentist before whitening if you have:

  • Periodontal disease
  • Overly sensitive teeth
  • Have had recent oral surgery
  • Decayed teeth
  • Exposed roots
  • Exposed dentine
  • Jaw problems
