For a brighter, whiter smile
How does teeth whitening work?
Teeth whitening is a chemical process. The peroxide in the whitening agent breaks down into tiny molecules that move inside the tooth structure, where they break down any molecules that cause discolouration. Because of this process, the internal colour of the entire tooth is lightened, and the structure of the tooth is not altered at all. Enamel, dentine and any fillings, crowns or veneers are not affected or harmed by the peroxide.
How long does teeth whitening last?
Teeth whitening results are very stable. Depending on your diet and lifestyle, teeth whitening may need to be topped up periodically which is perfectly safe.

Zoom! is a very simple and effective procedure for those who wish to whiten teeth quickly.
It is done in the dental surgery and is very useful for those who are short of time. Your dentist applies a protective coating to cover your lips, cheeks and gums. Whitening gel is placed on your teeth and a light is directed over your teeth for fifteen minutes. This is repeated a further two times. The whole procedure takes about an hour.
Our Zoom! treatment also includes a take home top-up kit.
Teeth whitening vouchers are also available upon request – a perfect gift for a loved one
