Treatment Overview

Treatment Overview

Tooth whitening works because enamel and dentine are porous and semi-permeable materials, like a sponge, so the peroxide gel is able to diffuse through them. As bleaching gel starts to degrade, it reacts with pigment molecules within the tooth, altering the optical properties of these molecules and thus creates the perception of a whiter tooth.

An initial £55 consultation (redeemable against the cost of whitening) assesses tooth discolouration type and degree, as well as your general dental health. We will guide you through the latest procedures in teeth whitening, discuss your preferences, lifestyle factors, timing and any previous experiences before recommending your tailored whitening treatment plan.

We can help you whiten your teeth in several ways:

  1. Professional Tooth Cleaning is often sufficient for removing most external stains. This is usually the first step in the process. Our experienced hygienists will ensure you have a comfortable, thorough cleaning session and will recommend a home care regime so you can get the most out of your tooth whitening procedure
  2. Home Teeth Whitening. Using custom fabricated whitening trays, we will design a protocol for you to whiten your teeth in the comfort of your own home. This will include range of different strength whitening gels designed to be applied for different lengths of time, helping minimise sensitivity and maximise results. Most individuals achieve their desired result within 3-4 weeks and with home whitening, you have control of your end result.
  3. In-chair Teeth Whitening with additional nano-Hydroxyapatite treatment (Bio-Bleaching).

The development of dental products incorporating nano-hydroxapatite to re-mineralise enamel and strengthen tooth structure is one of the most exciting recent developments in dentistry.

At elleven Dental Wellness, we use a two-part whitening solution combining an active oxygen foam infused with nano-Hydroyapatite that is able to adhere to the tooth surface. The active foam repairs enamel and delivers 6% hydrogen peroxide to the teeth. The results are a whiter brighter smile and a stronger, smoother tooth surface which is less likely to stain in the future.

Concentrated nano-Hydroxyapatite serum is then applied to the teeth which re-mineralises and repairs the tooth surface, leaving you with a healthy white smile, with no sensitivity or damage to the enamel. Even patients who generally suffer from sensitive teeth will find that their sensitivity is greatly reduced after treatment.

There is no health risk to the patient, weakening or other damage to tooth enamel, with properly supervised professional tooth whitening.

Frequently Asked Questions

Tooth Whitening is minimally invasive, safe and a rewarding treatment for anyone displaying tooth discolouration or with darker teeth than they would like.

All whitening treatments begin with a thorough preoperative assessment to understand your dental history, degree and type of staining and any lifestyle factors that may influence treatment choice and results. After the clinician’s assessment, all appropriate whitening treatment options are offered and discussed so that the best mode of tooth whitening is chosen.

All natural teeth WILL whiten, but some teeth will whiten faster than others, which is why understanding the nature of tooth colour and staining is so important

Clean teeth will respond better to tooth whitening treatments, so commencing tooth whitening after a dental hygiene session is recommended. Immediately post-orthodontic treatment is also an ideal time to whiten your teeth and make the most of your new smile. Even if you have whitened your teeth previously they may need a “top up” to bring them back to their brightest.

Tooth whitening supervised by your dentist is completely safe and will not cause damage or weakening of your tooth enamel. Our in-house whitening actually remineralises your enamel with nano-hydroxyapatite, making your teeth stronger and less sensitive.

Tooth whitening can be performed in–house or in the comfort of your home. There are many factors which may influence why one technique is better for you and your teeth. During your initial whitening consultation we will explore the time and treatment commitments as well as the likely results for all of our whitening treatments, this will make choosing the right one for very easy.

Most people achieve B1 shade (the lightest natural tooth shade) and a large proportion will whiten further.

In-house whitening is completed in a 1.5 hour session and home whitening is usually performed over 2-4 weeks.
If you follow our recommended home maintenance regime you will continue to keep your new, whiter smile for as long as you continue with treatment. Without any maintenance your whitening will last 2-5 years and will gradually fade over time. This time period is dependent largely on your lifestyle. Avoid smoking and coloured food and drink.

There are very few real contra-indications to tooth whitening however it is currently illegal for whitening procedures to be performed on individuals under the age of 18.
Contra-indications:
Existing restorations on front teeth which won’t whiten, unless these are planned for replacement after treatment.
Active dental decay and gum disease (this needs to be remedied first). Pregnancy and breast feeding depending on products being used.

Since dentists first introduced tooth whitening with hydrogen peroxide literally millions of people have had this treatment, studies have proved it is safe and does not weaken teeth. Repeated whitening is safe, however, each tooth has a maximum whiteness beyond which it will not lighten further.

Please note that you should continue seeing your general dentist for check ups and hygiene EVERY 6 months.
