Frequently Asked Questions
HOW WHITE WILL MY TEETH GO AT THE END OF THE TREATMENT?
This depends on a number of factors and results will vary between patients. Generally speaking our system will get your teeth to as white as they will naturally go. We expect an improvement of 3-4 shades from any treatment.
HOW SOON WILL I SEE THE RESULTS?
Most people see results from the whitening procedure within a couple of days.
WILL THE TEETH REMAIN PERMANENTLY WHITE?
No. Results will generally last for 6 months to 2 years. This will vary due to lifestyle (e.g. drinking lots of tea or coffee), wear and tear and ageing. The idea of a home whitening system is that if you feel the teeth have become darker over a period of time, then the effect can be improved again by using the kit from time to time.
IS THE PROCESS HARMFUL TO TEETH?
No. The effect on teeth is no different to the effect from commonly ingested foods or regular dental procedures.
WILL THE GEL WHITEN CROWNS, VENEERS OR FALSE TEETH?
No. The procedure will only remove staining from natural teeth.
If you are planning to have a crown, bridge, filling or false tooth, it is recommended that you first have your teeth whitened. We can then match the shade to your new colour.
