Teeth whitening is a very popular treatment helping patients to feel more confident with their smile.
Professional teeth whitening is a safe, effective method of improving the appearance of your teeth. It uses safe concentrations of hydrogen/carbamide peroxide to remove the stain pigment from the tooth.
At Shore Dental we offer both in-surgery teeth whitening (BlancOne) and home whitening. In-surgery whitening is completed immediately after a hygienist clean and airflow appointment. For best, long-lasting results, in-surgery whitening is recommended to be used alongside home whitening.
Before whitening, you must have a check-up with one of our dentists to ensure that you are a suitable candidate for whitening.

What is included with home whitening treatment?
Following a dental check-up, a mould of your teeth will be taken and send away to the laboratory. Custom whitening trays are made. This usually takes 1-2 weeks. You will have a second appointment to ensure that the trays fit and show you how to use the gel. You will receive 4 tubes of whitening gel to take home. Depending on the dentist recommendation and your lifestyle determines if you use the day whitening gel or the nighttime whitening gel.
