Coffee, tea, wine and smoking – these are just a few of life’s little pleasures that can, over time, stain your teeth and leave you feeling less attractive. Luckily there are professional teeth whitening treatments available to undo the damage. Tooth whitening is the safest and most cost-effective way of improving the appearance of your smile. It really works! And it works whether you are 18 or 80.
On the left, we see the results of two weeks of take-home whitening with White Dental Beauty. These teeth have lightened by more than 10 shades! This is not unusual. The finish shade B1 is the lightest shade on our regular guide. However, if you want to go lighter than this you can. Our shade guides have been extended to cater for people who want the very whitest teeth! (see below). You have control on how white you go and our system allows simple touch ups to maintain a gleaming smile.
Tooth whitening is used on its own or as part of a smile makeover process to improve the overall appearance and health of your teeth. White Dental Beauty from Optident is a leading worldwide, tooth – whitening brand. We trust them to provide you and us with the best high quality, innovative and clinically researched whitening products.
White Dental Beauty gels are carefully formulated to maintain a neutral PH.
£325 for upper and lower custom made trays, White Dental Beauty whitening gel and all time with the dentist or hygienist providing the treatment. There is 10% reduction for patients on Denplan.
We stock some really useful and exceptional value whitening maintenance kits from the UltraDEX range which are very effective following tooth whitening treatment in helping you maintain your beautiful white smile. It helps counteract the effects of coffee tea and smoking. The UltraDEX range helps bridge the gap between professional and home dental care providing a superior level of cleaning and protection. They are neutral in taste, contain no alcohol and are suitable for vegetarians.
The active ingredients Chlorine Dioxide (Cl02) and Fluoride are very important in combatting gum disease, tooth decay, maintaining fresh breath and gently whitening teeth and removing the surface stain. Suitable for daily long term use.
If you want to “top up” your whitening treatment at any point you can. Just buy a syringe or two of White Dental Beauty gel from our shop at reception and wear your trays for a couple of nights to bring everything back to your whitening finish point. Most people find they want to this once … maybe twice a year. Really depends on your consumption of coffee and tea etc, and if you are using the UltraDEX products!
NB UltraDEX products are also extremely successful in the treatment of bad breath. Bad breath is a very embarrassing and difficult complaint. We have found UltraDEX mouthwash and toothpaste, combined with tongue scraping, works on people who have tried everything else.

In addition to White Dental Beauty we have recently started offering Boutique Whitening to our patients. This has the added advantage of a product specifically designed to be used for just an hour in the day “ Boutique by Day” which fits much better with some of our patient’s lifestyles, with great results noticeable in just a few days.
We have also started using S4S dental. A world renowned laboratory to produce the very best ultra seal trays. Developed by a dedicated team of dental professionals, the trays we use now, are we feel, the best available for delivering optimum results with any bleaching regime. The trays create an ‘ultra-sealed’ margin at the gum line. With the combination of the tray rigidity and the ultra-sealed margin, it creates the perfect barrier to keep saliva from entering into the tray, while also reducing the amount of whitening gel that can escape.
Our ultra-seal trays also include ‘Dosing Dots’ on the front aspects of the teeth. The Dosing Dots give you a guide of how much tooth whitening gel you should apply to each tooth. Over filled trays can lead to excess material sitting on the gum for prolonged periods of time, which can lead to discomfort or sensitivity. The use of the Dosing Dots and the ultra-sealed margins, in our opinion, gives the ultimate tray for achieving the best results and comfort.
