The Facts about Laser Teeth Whitening
• Laser Teeth Whitening is quick, painless and a very effective way of improving your appearance.
• The results can last for up to 24 months with regular top ups and care.
• Laser Teeth Whitening can also restore crowns, caps, and veneers to their original colour.

Laser Teeth Whitening Procedure
Laser teeth whitening is simple and safe! The procedure is carried out by fully qualified accredited technicians. After a full, in depth consultation you can sit back and relax as your dreams of a whiter smile become a reality!There are just a few easy steps to your brighter, whiter smile! The dental technician will match your teeth to a Vita shade chart. A plastic retractor is gently placed into your mouth to hold your smile in position and a protective gel is applied to the gums. The whitening gel is applied to your teeth and the laser light is started for a timed cycle of ten minutes. The full treatment is two-three sets of fifteen minutes. This is removed after each fifteen minutes and reapplied to achieve the desired results. Finally, when the gum and plastic retractor are removed, you can rinse out your mouth and start to enjoy your new smile right away. The technician will then match your teeth to the new colour on the Vita shade chart! Following the laser teeth whitening treatment, you will be given an aftercare sheet.
