If you desire a brighter smile, teeth whitening can remove discolouration and reveal a beautiful smile. Teeth whitening is a quick, non-invasive, and affordable way to enhance your smile.

You can book a professional whitening session at our dental practice or purchase a dentist-supervised home-based whitening kit to brighten your smile in the comfort of your own home.

Why should you choose in-office teeth whitening?

Sometimes referred to as chairside whitening, in-office teeth whitening provides dramatic results that can’t be achieved using over-the-counter options. In-office teeth whitening is carefully monitored, ensuring a comfortable experience. The brightening gel used is highly concentrated and produces immediate and noticeable results.

Some types of discolouration won’t respond to treatment such as stains caused by problems within the tooth structure. Superficial stains caused by food and drink typically respond well to teeth whitening treatment.

What is the difference between in-office and home-based teeth whitening treatments?

If you are looking for an easy way to brighten your teeth, ask us about our home-based teeth whitening options. When you choose the at-home option, we take impressions of your teeth to create bespoke whitening trays. We show you how to use these trays with the concentrated whitening gel to produce great results.

On average, at-home systems contain from 3% to 20% peroxide, which is carbamide or hydrogen peroxide. In-office systems contain from 15% to 43% peroxide. In- surgery treatments may be quicker, but both provide the same results.

Are home-based teeth whitening treatments safe?

Our home-based teeth whitening treatments are thoroughly tested for safety. These products are only available through our dental practice, and we supervise your treatment from the start until completion.

Many home whitening products contain potassium fluoride, which helps strengthen tooth enamel to provide better protection from cavities.

Most of the home whitening kits available also include potassium nitrate, either in the gel or in an additional product like a tooth serum. Potassium nitrate is a desensitising agent that helps to reduce sensitivity, a common side effect of whitening.

What are the benefits of going through Acorn Dental Care for at-home whitening?

Over-the-counter home whitening products are often subject to misapplication, and not all of them have been adequately tested to ensure their safety. There is no way of knowing how a home whitening treatment will affect your teeth or gums until you use it.

We only offer whitening treatments that have undergone stringent testing. We also evaluate your oral health before administering any treatment, providing an additional level of care you won’t get with a shop-bought product.

How do I keep my teeth white after the treatment?

There are a variety of ways to keep your teeth white after a home-based tooth whitening treatment. Continue to keep your teeth and gums healthy with regular visits with our dental hygienist and an effective oral hygiene routine, using a whitening toothpaste to maintain your results.

Avoid smoking and consuming foods and drinks that stain the teeth like tea, coffee, red wine, and berries, as well as soy, tomato, and curry sauces.

Can anyone have their teeth whitened?

Our dentist will conduct a thorough assessment of your teeth and gums before administering any teeth whitening treatment to ensure you don’t require restorative treatment before undergoing a teeth-whitening procedure.

Children under the age of 16, pregnant or lactating women or patients with gum disease are not good candidates for teeth whitening.

How white will my teeth be after the treatment?

The shade of each patients’ teeth after a whitening treatment will vary.
Results greatly depend on the type of staining you have, how white you want your teeth to be, and the formulation of your chosen treatment.
