Teeth Whitening

Is your smile not looking as bright and dazzling as it used to? Stains, discolouration and the effects of ageing can take a toll on your smile, dulling its natural colour and brilliance. Professional teeth whitening treatments offer an ideal solution to rejuvenate your smile, removing deep stains for a brighter, more radiant smile.

At Blue Gum Dental, we offer teeth whitening procedures tailored to your specific whitening requirements to ensure visible and lasting results. From an instant smile transformation with our in-chair teeth whitening to a more gradual lightening process with convenient take-home teeth whitening kits, we’re here to return the shine to your smile.

There’s a range of reasons teeth become discoloured. Genetics, your environment, even taking certain medication can all have an impact on the whiteness of your smile.

The most common reason is surface stains on your enamel. This is down to everyday food, drinks and lifestyle choices. Over time, these stains can work their way to the layer below enamel, known as dentin. When this becomes stained, the whole tooth looks darker because of the translucency of enamel.

There are several options, ranging from professional treatments, to over-the-counter whitening toothpastes and strips. Prescribed whitening treatments from Philips Zoom! can give you a smile up to 8 shades whiter, and take place either in-office or at home.

The first step is a consultation with your dental professional. Find out more in our article about how to get whiter teeth.

Apart from Zoom! teeth whitening products, your toothbrush can also play a part in brightening your smile. Philips Sonicare toothbrushes deliver up to 62,000 brush strokes per minute to help remove stains and naturally whiten your teeth.
Whitening treatments that tackle stained dentin, the layer below your surface enamel, contain ingredients such as hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide. These react chemically with the carbon that causes dentin to yellow, leaving your teeth whiter from the inside out.
Our whitening treatments are formulated to give you long-lasting results, but the results will vary depending on the type of whitening you opt for. Lifestyle choices, such as drinking drinks that stain teeth, will make them yellow again over time.

The in-clinic Philips Zoom! treatment takes approximately 45 minutes1. Quick, outstanding results with little to no sensitivity. You’ll leave the dentist chair with an instantly brighter, more confident smile. The Philips Zoom! in-clinic treatment includes:

  • Teeth that are up to 8 shades whiter1
  • Post-treatment gel to protect sensitive teeth
  • Customised to your needs

Yes! Philips Zoom! take-home teeth whitening kits are a safe and convenient way to get your smile noticeably whiter in one to two weeks. You’ll get professional, affordable results with little to no sensitivity.

Teeth Whitening Services in Brentwood

At Blue Gum Dental, we aim to give our patients a safe and comfortable teeth whitening experience, beginning with a consultation to understand your requirements and ensure your mouth is healthy and ready for the procedure. This also allows us to explain the process and answer your concerns before treatment. We recommend a dental cleaning before the procedure to remove any plaque buildup and debris for a smoother tooth surface to ensure flawless results.

We offer two convenient options for teeth whitening:

In-Chair Teeth Whitening

If you’re looking for a speedy smile transformation, our in-office teeth whitening can be a fantastic choice. The process is straightforward, usually taking only one visit. It involves applying a whitening gel to your teeth and activating it with a special light to accelerate the process. The whitening process will be broken into three to four 10-minute sessions, lightening your teeth by almost 8 shades! With whitening agents formulated to suit your teeth and minimise sensitivity, you can expect instant results and a visibly whiter smile for a stunning smile transformation.

Take-Home Teeth Whitening

Our take-home teeth whitening kits offer a flexible solution to whiten your teeth at home, at your own pace. With custom-made teeth whitening trays and a peroxide-based whitening gel suited to your aesthetic goals, you can use these trays at night or several hours daily as instructed by our dentist. They will gradually lighten your teeth, removing stains and discolouration until you achieve your desired shade and natural-looking teeth-whitening results. 

The results for professional teeth whitening may vary depending on the original shade and the condition of your teeth. It may not be suitable for patients with multiple dental restorations, severe teeth discolouration or existing oral problems like gum disease, cavities and exposed tooth roots. In such situations, our dentists may recommend tailored treatments for treating existing issues or alternative procedures like dental veneers to cover smile imperfections.

Revitalise Your Smile

Professional teeth whitening offers a great solution to brighten teeth by several shades without damaging tooth enamel. Our friendly dentists work closely with you, from the first consultation to treatment and aftercare, prioritising your safety and comfort for a positive experience and exceptional results.
