Teeth Whitening Dentist
Restore your youthful smile
Professional teeth whitening is an easy, safe and comfortable process to brighten up your smile. Your clinician will first assess overall suitability and take a digital scan of your mouth that is used to produce a custom fit mouth guard.
Our clinician will prescribe a personalised whitening gel to be used in the mouth guard at a convenient time for you over a period of several weeks. This method can be used at home to maintain the whitening results for life.
This professional treatment will break down the internal dark pigment in the tooth which toothpaste or a visit to the hygienist cannot achieve.
For best results
- During the treatment period avoid staining foods and drinks like red wine, coffee and turmeric
- Consistent application of the gel during the treatment period is required
- Simply order more gel for maintenance of your bright smile

Teeth Whitening FAQs
Is tooth whitening bad for your teeth?
No! Professional tooth whitening involves the use of a gel which will break down dark pigment molecules in your teeth to make them lighter. Non-professional solutions and remedies can be harmful though.
How long does tooth whitening last?
Depending on your habits the results can last decades. At Fulham Road Dental we provide you with a system where you can top-up the results at home very easily. As long as you don’t lose the trays, you will just need to buy a top up of gel.
Does tooth whitening make my teeth sensitive?
Teeth whitening can temporarily make your teeth a little more sensitive to cold stimulus. This sensitivity will go away when you stop the whitening.
Does whitening toothpaste work?
In a nut shell – no. Toothpaste doesn’t contain the right level of hydrogen peroxide to whiten your teeth. Some can even be abrasive and wear the healthy enamel. If you want whiter teeth then you should get professional tooth whitening – home methods can be damaging.
