Teeth Whitening

Teeth Whitening Hammersmith

Teeth Whitening is a simple, practically painless procedure with lasting results. If you are happy with your teeth but want a brighter, whiter smile, this treatment is perfect for you.

There are two options for a teeth whitening treatment with Blythe Road Dental Practice for you to choose from, depending on which suits your lifestyle best.

Teeth whitening Hammersmith - Blythe Road Dental Practice

Home Whitening

Home whitening is the least expensive method of whitening your teeth. While you will need to visit the practice for appointments, the majority of the treatment is carried out by you in the privacy of your own home.

During your in-practice appointments, the dentist will carefully take impressions of your teeth and make custom whitening trays that fit your teeth perfectly. These trays must fit your teeth snugly to allow for the teeth whitening Hammersmith to be even and consistent across all teeth, while also ensuring the whitening gel does not leak and irritate the gums and tongue.

When beginning your treatment at home, these trays are used in combination with the whitening gel, which contains the active ingredients that lighten the colour of the teeth. A small amount of gel is squeezed into the trays, which are worn for 4 hours per day to achieve a white shade that can be up to 8 shades lighter than your natural colour.

Number of appointments required:  3 appointments
Treatment time 14 days
Results Up to 8 shades lighter
  • Relatively inexpensive
  • Safer and more effective than shop-bought home whitening kits
  • Convenient treatment at home
  • Takes longer than Zoom2!
  • Wearing the trays can be inconvenient
  • More in-clinic appointments
Life Expectancy 2-3 years (with a top-up at 18 months)

Phillips Zoom teeth whitening in Hammersmith - Blythe Road Dental Practice

Phillips Zoom! Teeth Whitening Hammersmith

For those looking for a much whiter smile in a very short period of time, Zoom2! laser whitening is one of the fastest whitening systems available in the world.

Here, a whitening gel is applied to the teeth that contains a much higher concentration of active ingredients than is available in the home trays. This gel is then activated with a high-intensity plasma arc light.

At the end of the appointment, there will be a noticeable change in the colour of the teeth, thanks to the higher quantity of whitening ingredients. This is not achievable using at-home whitening alone thanks to important safety legislation, which allows only in-chair treatments performed by qualified dentists to use higher quantities of active ingredients.

This is followed by a more rapid form of the home treatment to stabilize the colour change and enhance the final result, helping patients to achieve a noticeable, long-lasting level of teeth whitening Hammersmith.

Number of appointments required: 2 appointments
Treatment time Just over an hour
Results Up to 8 shades lighter
  • Quick, easy and comfortable with immediate results.
  • Zoom2! Laser Whitening causes 73% less sensitivity than other ‘in-chair’ systems, such as Britesmile.
  • Longer-lasting with less fade back
Disadvantages None
Life Expectancy 2-3 years (with a top-up at 18 months)

Teeth Whitening Hammersmith FAQs

Teeth whitening is a safe, common, and routine treatment when handled by a dental professional. 

However, there have been cases of damage from at-home teeth whitening, especially with kits that have been bought online. 

To ensure your treatment is safe and won’t damage your smile, it is essential that you opt for in-practice teeth whitening in Hammersmith, or trusted at-home treatments that can be purchased from your dentist. 

We would never encourage patients to buy teeth whitening treatments online – as they could burn the gums and tongue, dissolve the enamel, and even release carcinogens into the body.

For advice or to arrange an appointment for teeth whitening, contact the team by calling 020 7602 5089 or send us an email and we’ll be in touch.
