Professional tooth whitening is a safe, predictable and non-destructive way to rapidly brighten your smile. So many of our clients tell us that they didn't realise how much of a boost to their self-confidence it would bring until after they'd tried it. As no two people or two mouths are the same, we offer a number of solutions to controllably achieve the result you desire, all of which can be done by you at home. This means less unnecessary visits but yet enables you to achieve a natural-looking result.

The enVisage team has a wealth of experience in providing a number of tooth whitening systems, and we have carried out post-graduate training to ensure we can offer care which puts your health and wellbeing at the core of everything we do. As always, we treat your mouth as we would treat our own.

How does Whitening work?

Tooth whitening involves the use of a bleaching agent, which contains hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide in concentrations of about ten to twenty percent. The agent removes surface stains as well as deep stains on your teeth and it is perfectly safe for human use at these concentration levels. You can allow a dentist to apply this agent on your teeth while you are at the dentist’ surgery or you can opt for home whitening, where you use thin trays containing this bleaching agent to cover your teeth for several hours in a day.

The longevity of teeth whitening treatment depends on the person undergoing the procedure i.e. what he consumes after the procedure and how well he takes care of his teeth. However, the average teeth whitening treatment lasts for about two to five years. You can then opt for a similar procedure or use alternative teeth whitening techniques at home after this time elapses. These alternative techniques help you to achieve your desired shade of teeth colour. Remember, taking care of your teeth increases the longevity of your treatment but you should also consider some lifestyle changes such as quitting cigarettes to increase this longevity period even more.

What are the Benefits of Teeth Whitening?

Tooth whitening is a dental procedure that can dramatically alter the aesthetic properties of your teeth leaving you with a bright smile. In other words, it erodes the staining effects of various substances such as tea, wine, coffee and cigarettes on your teeth. These substances though pleasurable, stain your teeth by causing them to develop yellow and grey stains. The stains will not come off even when you use ordinary toothpaste necessitating the use of teeth whitening to remove them. Some of the major benefits are:

  • It will improve your facial appearance by giving you a bright warm smile that will amaze the people around you.
  • It will also improve your confidence as you can now smile without fearing that people will look at any stained teeth in your mouth.
  • This kind of unshakable boost in self-confidence also improves your self-esteem and in turn, it informs how well you interact with people you know in addition to how well you interact with strangers.
  • Ultimately, you will find it easier to approach people including strangers and initiate a conversation with them.
  • Tooth whitening is an inexpensive and non-invasive procedure unlike many other dental procedures. It is therefore within the reach of many ordinary individuals.
  • Tooth whitening also gives you a natural smile unlike some other dental procedures.
