Teeth Whitening

Nothing freshens your appearance and boosts your confidence like a white bright smile. Tooth whitening is one of the simplest and most cost-effective ways of improving your smile without compromising the health of your teeth.

Whitening is safe and gentle with numerous clinical studies showing there are no damaging effects on teeth, gums or existing fillings. Whitening products work by creating a chemical reaction that break apart the molecules that create yellow stains. Once the bond is broken, they no longer reflect a yellow colour.

Using different systems over the years, our experience has shown take-home whitening as the most reliable way to whiten your teeth. It is good value and it takes just two short visits and one week of application for a noticeable result.

We start by taking a mould of your teeth to custom-fit inconspicuous, thin, lightweight, soft plastic trays to your teeth. At SubiDental the quality is unmatched as the dentist himself fabricates and checks each tray. You use a whitening gel within these trays for 1-2 weeks, depending on the improvement you are after.

The whitening effect is gradual, so you can control the level of whiteness by varying the application time. The effects can last a few years, less if you drink lots of tea, coffee, red wine or smoke cigarettes. Most people choose to top-up their whitening after their annual clean appointments and re-whitening is quick with only 2-3 days re-application.

Whitening may cause a temporary sensitivity to cold which can be controlled using specialty toothpastes or mousse. If you have existing fillings or crowns on your front teeth, you may like to have these updated to match the improved colour.
