Teeth Whitening in Surrey Quays

Teeth whitening is one of the most popular cosmetic dentistry procedures. It offers a fast and effective way to remove stains from food and drink. It is the only way to remove discolouration from staining particles that are absorbed by the tooth structure. Professional, dentist-supervised teeth whitening will ensure minimal sensitivity and no damage to the teeth or gums.

Prices start from just £250

A brighter smile in just two weeks

Teeth whitening offers a cost-effective way to upgrade your smile without making any dramatic changes. Our teeth absorb staining particles from food and drink, and this can lead to the teeth looking dull, grey, yellow or brown. Teeth whitening works by penetrating the tooth structure, breaking up the particles and flushing them out.

Our teeth whitening system starts with a one hour treatment in our dental office. We will then give you custom-made whitening trays for you to continue the treatment at home. The at-home treatment takes around two weeks and you will be able to wear the trays at night to minimise disruption to your life. 

Your teeth may be a little more sensitive in the days following your treatment. This is because the teeth whitening chemicals make your teeth more permeable. This is a temporary effect and the small pores in your teeth will close again after treatment. Over-use of whitening treatments can cause permanent increases in sensitivity, so we will work with you to ensure your teeth whitening routine is safe and sustainable.

It's important to care for your teeth after treatment to keep them looking white and beautiful. You might want to avoid staining food and drinks, such as tea, coffee, cola and sticky sauces like ketchup, barbecue sauce or teriyaki. You can also try drinking through a straw to limit contact with your teeth. And finally, you can also switch to a sensitive toothpaste to help control sensitivity.

How does teeth whitening work?

Your teeth might look solid, but they are actually porous, which means they have small holes in them and can absorb things like a sponge. Some food and drink choices will stain more than others. This includes things like tea, coffee, soy sauce, tomatoes, and cola.

Teeth whitening works by penetrating the tooth with a bleaching material that breaks down the bonds between the staining particles so they are small enough to be flushed out. When done correctly, this process can achieve dramatic changes in whiteness with no increased sensitivity.

Frequently asked questions

Learn more about your treatment. We’ve answered the most common patient questions below.

Yes, teeth whitening is very safe when it is supervised by a dentist. The chemicals used can cause harm if used incorrectly, which is why it is important to only trust your dentist with teeth whitening procedures. 

No, teeth whitening is not a permanent treatment. The staining can return if you continue to consume the food and drink that caused the original staining. We can help you to create a teeth whitening maintenance schedule to keep your smile looking bright and white.

There are a few methods dentists can use to whiten teeth. The first is to use airflow polishing to remove surface stains. The second is to use hydrogen peroxide, or carbamide peroxide to flush out deep-set stains from inside the tooth structure.

No, teeth whitening is not available as an NHS treatment. This is only available as a private treatment.

  • Couldn't express enough gratitude towards the team here. I needed a safe pair of hands with my #8 Incisor, plus the heavy-woes close behind my dilemma. Dialling in to SDDP, I was received by Djoan, who was attentive and patient with my anxiety. She really was altruistic over the phone and put me at ease right away. Getting an appointment is never easy in the land of today but I felt reassured I was made a priority as best she could. Representing is Djoan and also Roshni, whom was totally ahead of the game and had forseen an appropriate approach to my following visits necessary to regain as much of my Hollywood E-lister smile as possible.Dr Safari answered my doubts with professionalism, great knowledge and clarity. Rebooking before leaving was painless as Djoan and Roshni had effortlessly lined up my appointment options so I only had to mutter, "that one". With Ivana managing, perpetual assurance is imminent.
