If you are unhappy with the colour and appearance of your teeth, you may hide them or not smile as often.

From £360

Teeth whitening for a sparkly smile

Tooth whitening has improved the lives of many of our patients, enhancing their confidence and their facial appearance and self-image. It is a fast, effective and safe way to transform the appearance of your smile, turning back the clock on ageing and discolouration.

First impressions count and a smile reveals so much about a person - our patients say that “it makes them look up to 15 years younger”.

Over the years, teeth may turn yellow due to diet, ageing, and lifestyle. Known culprits include drinking dark-coloured beverages like coffee and tea, taking certain medications, and smoking. To correct this problem, we offer whitening treatment to our patients at our Essex practice.

We provide both premium in-practice whitening and supervised home whitening to restore shine and lustre to your smile.

Teeth whitening is one of the most highly demanded services we provide at Braintree Dental Studio. It’s cost effective and safe. We recommend our premium teeth whitening in Essex because you and your safety are paramount. Why settle for anything but the best?

PREMIUM Teeth Whitening

This is the most advanced whitening system currently available to dentists. It includes approximately two weeks of home whitening treatment, followed by a session of in-surgery ‘power whitening’ with one of our specially trained team.

This system will give you a bright, white smile in three weeks. See our gallery for examples of some amazing results.

Our premium teeth whitening in Essex is safe, comfortable and 100% effective.

Supervised home whitening

Custom-made whitening trays are made especially for you to use in the comfort of your own home, with excellent results. We will check and assess the whitening procedure as it progresses.

The whitening process occurs by oxidation, whereby free oxygen radicals attach to the stains of your teeth and neutralise them. Most of the magic occurs at night whilst you sleep.

When supervised by your Essex dentist, tooth whitening has proven to be a safe and effective method to rejuvenate the colour of your smile. Prior to your treatment, your teeth and gums will be thoroughly examined and cleaned. This enables us to safely whiten your smile and achieve optimal results.

Teeth whitening treatments in shopping centres and beauty parlours can be illegal and dangerous.

See the General Dental Council’s website for further guidance.

Commonly asked tooth whitening questions answered

What does tooth whitening do?

Arrow Down | Bow Lane Dental Group in London

Tooth whitening can be a highly effective, yet very simple way of lightening the colour of teeth without removing any of the tooth surface. It cannot make a colour change, but lightens the existing colour.

What does the procedure involve?

Arrow Down | Bow Lane Dental Group in London

In a live tooth your dentist applies the whitening product using a specially made tray which fits into the mouth like a gum shield. The chemical is then activated using heat, or heat and light combined. The active ingredient in the product is normally hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide.

If the tooth has been root treated, the canal, which previously contained the nerve, may be reopened and the whitening product is put in. In both cases, the procedure needs to be repeated until the right shade is reached.

How long does the procedure take?

Arrow Down | Bow Lane Dental Group in London

First of all you will need two or three visits to your dentist. They will need to make a mouthguard and will take impressions for this at the first appointment. 

Once your dentist has started the treatment, you will continue it at home. This will mean applying the bleach regularly over 2-4 weeks for 30 minutes to one hour at a time. However, some newer products can be applied for up to 8 hours at a time, which means that a satisfactory result can be obtained in as little as one week.

Why would my teeth need to be bleached?

Arrow Down | Bow Lane Dental Group in London

Everyone is different; just as our hair and skin colour varies, so do our teeth. Some have a yellowish tinge, some are more beige and very few are actually ‘white’. Teeth also yellow with age and can become stained on the surface by food and drinks such as tea, coffee and blackcurrant. Calculus, or tartar, can also affect the colour of your teeth. Some people may have staining inside their teeth, caused by certain antibiotics or tiny cracks in the teeth, which take up the stain.

Do home teeth whitening kits work?

Arrow Down | Bow Lane Dental Group in London

At Braintree Dental Studio we do not recommend using over-the-counter kits, as they contain only a small amount of hydrogen peroxide, which makes the product less effective. Some also contain mild acids, while others are abrasive.

Although these products are cheaper, teeth whitening is a complicated treatment procedure and should only be carried out by a dentist after a thorough examination and assessment of your teeth. It is very important to follow the instructions your dentist gives you, and to make sure that you attend any follow-up appointments.

When might teeth whitening not work?

Arrow Down | Bow Lane Dental Group in London

Whitening can only lighten your existing tooth colour. For a change to a specific chosen shade veneering is another option. Whitening also works on natural teeth and won’t work on any type of ‘false’ teeth, including dentures, crowns and veneers. If dentures are stained or discoloured, you can ask your dentist to clean or they may need replacing. 

What about whitening toothpaste?

Arrow Down | Bow Lane Dental Group in London

There are now several whitening toothpastes you can buy. Although they do not affect the natural colour of the tooth, they are effective at removing staining and therefore improving the overall appearance of the tooth. Whitening toothpaste may also help to keep up the appearance, once teeth have been professionally whitened.

How long will the results of teeth whitening last?

Arrow Down | Bow Lane Dental Group in London

Treatment results may vary depending on the original shade of the teeth as they tend to darken slightly over time. The effect lasts for around one to three years, although sometimes it can last longer. Some people find their teeth are sensitive for the first few days after treatment, but this wears off after a short while.
