This is the oldest and also the best teeth whitening technique available. It is used by all dentists to produce reliable results with minimum side-effects such as sensitivity.

The home teeth whitening method is very cost-effective as the trays can be reused over and over again to help you create and maintain that whiter, radiant smile and the refill syringes are inexpensive to purchase.
Laser Whitening/Power Whitening
We do not find laser whitening to be effective therefore this option has now been discontinued.

Usually for up to a year and the teeth will gradually go yellow with time.

It is essential that your teeth and gums are assessed before you undergo any whitening procedures. By law, a dentist needs to prescribe the whitening treatment therefore it is illegal for any other person to authorise this procedure. Teeth Whitening carries out by non-dental professionals is illegal and should be reported.
The General Dental Council (GDC) have successfully prosecuted a beautician for conducting Tooth Whitening (April 2011).
