Having a beautiful smile may be even easier than you think and many people are able to have the smile of their dreams with our simple 'whitening process'.
We use Zoom Home Whitening Gel. Impressions are taken to make customised whitening trays which fit perfectly over your existing teeth. You have the choice of either day or night whitening gel provided by the Dentist that you simply place into the trays and then wear for the appropriate period.
This provides a convenient, gradual and effective option for those who want to regulate their tooth whitening over a couple of weeks or ‘top up’ for that ‘special occasion’.
It's safe, quick and gives excellent results and can typically whiten teeth by up to 3 - 4 shades.
How long does whitening last?
The results are not permanent. Generally speaking, it can last from 6 months to 3 years, depending on the initial colour of your teeth and lifestyle habits. The effect is less likely to last as long if you smoke, or eat or drink products that can stain your teeth.
Illegal tooth whitening kits are available on the internet or used by unqualified staff at some beauty salons. The bleach levels in these kits can be up to 300% higher than the maximum legal limit. This can cause blistering and burns to gums, damage to nerves and tooth enamel.

Porcelain veneers are thin shells of ceramic that bond directly to the front surfaces of the teeth. They are an ideal choice for improving your smile and have become increasingly popular due to their simplicity and versatility.
Placing custom veneers requires a high degree of technical skill as well as attention to cosmetic detail. We place veneers routinely, and design each case individually to match and enhance the characteristics of each patient's smile.
Inlays and Onlays
When more than half of a tooth's biting surface is damaged a dentist will often repair it with an inlay or onlay. They can be made of porcelain, gold, or composite resin and are bonded to the damaged area of the tooth.
They have many advantages but the most important one is that they can actually strengthen the tooth rather than weaken it as we see with traditional silver fillings.
