How does tooth whitening work?
Tooth whitening is basically the process of breaking apart chemical bonds in these organic and inorganic stain causing compounds through the application of a whitening gel to the teeth. It happens when the whitening gel is photo-excited by our advanced blue light Accelerator system creating a powerful redox action which removes years of stains from your teeth.
How long does the treatment take?
The treatment is approximately 80 minutes plus consultation, allow 2hrs.
Is it safe?
Yes, scientific research has shown that the active ingredients in the teeth whitening gel are effective and safe for cosmetic tooth whitening. The cosmetic community has used these ingredients in performing teeth whitening for many years.

Is the Teeth Whitening treatment for everyone?

This includes people with teeth that have been stained by smoking or by substances such as coffee or tea. It also whitens teeth stained by tetracycline, speckled by fluoride, or hereditary discoloration. Pregnant or breast feeding women or clients under 16 years of age should not receive a teeth whitening procedure.
How long will my whitening last?
The results are different from person to person. For a few fortunate people with a typical diet the results can last up to 1-2 years.

Because all teeth whiten differently it is not possible to guarantee how white an individuals teeth might become. However, for most, after undergoing whitening with our teeth whitening system you will see an improvement of up to 9 shades on the teeth whitening shade guide.

Scaling and Polishing
If you are having a Dentist scale and polish your teeth, we ask that you wait 14-days for your gums to settle and the pellicle layer to regrow before your whitening procedure.
Should I brush my teeth prior to the treatment?
Brushing right before the whitening procedure is NOT recommended as it can cause the micropic 'pores' in the teeth enamel to become blocked with 'fillers' resulting in inferior results. Last brush should be at least 2 hours before.
