Many of us long for a bright, white smile, but sometimes our habits get in the way of sparkly teeth. If you can’t function without your morning coffee or love to relax with a glass of red after work, you might have noticed your smile losing its lustre. Certain antibiotics can dull tooth shade too, but some teeth are just naturally darker than others.

No matter what’s caused the discolouration, your confidence shouldn’t suffer. If you’re looking for a self-esteem boost or want a perfect smile for a special occasion, we’re here to help, with our selection of amazing whitening treatments.

At Straight Teeth Suite, you’ll be spoilt for choice when it comes to teeth whitening! We only use well-researched, safe products to give you the best results. These spectacular treatments are:

Zoom! home whitening

zoomPerfect for anyone with a busy lifestyle, Zoom! home whitening can give you professional results from the comfort of your own home, or even from your office! To kick off this simple process, we’ll take impressions of your teeth to make customised whitening trays. As they’re tailor-made for your mouth, Zoom! whitening trays are a perfect, comfortable fit. When your trays are ready, we’ll show you how to use the whitening gel to get amazing results. You’ll need to wear these trays every day for two weeks, but only for two half-hour periods, so you won’t need to plan your day around your whitening!

Zoom! laser whitening

This outstanding treatment combines chemical activation and advanced light technology. This might sound a bit complicated, but we use Zoom! every day and know it inside out, so you’re in excellent hands. As it’s non-invasive, you shouldn’t feel any discomfort. Zoom! laser whitening takes about an hour and happens in three stages:

  1. Firstly, we’ll apply a special protective coating to your gums to make sure they don’t come into contact with the whitening agent.
  2. Next, we’ll put the whitening gel onto your teeth. Simple!
  3. The final stage is to use the Zoom! lamp to activate the gel and transform your smile. This should take about ten minutes.

We’ll go through each of these steps three times in your session. Once we’re done, you can see the results for yourself and we’ll show you a before and after comparison. Laser whitening works brilliantly and could get your teeth up to eight shades whiter!

Enlighten deep bleaching

enlighten-logoEnlighten is a hugely popular whitening treatment and arguably the best if you’re looking for a mega-watt smile. We’ll start by taking impressions of your teeth so we’ve got a template for your bespoke whitening trays. When these are ready, you can take them home. Wear them every night for two weeks and you’ll have a confident, bright smile in no time!

You’ve probably seen Enlighten whitening on TV makeover programmes and it’s a favourite among celebrities. Its biggest benefit is that the dazzling results are long-lasting and could see your smile 14-16 shades whiter than it was before.

Teeth whitening FAQs

Will my smile stay white?

Your teeth will always be lighter than they were before you had them whitened, but they might need a touch up once or twice a year to keep those professional-looking results.

Is whitening safe?

Yes! Major research has concluded that teeth whitening is perfectly safe, as long as it’s provided by a qualified dental professional.

Are there any side effects?

Although teeth whitening is a safe procedure, some patients experience extra sensitivity after treatment. This should only last a couple of days and is nothing to worry about. If your teeth feel sensitive for longer than two days, give us a call as soon as possible.
