Can teeth whitening damage the natural enamel of my teeth?

Recent studies have proven that there is no proportionate relationship between cosmetic teeth whitening treatments and the erosion of tooth enamel. Our dentists recommend that our teeth whitening procedure is performed no more than once every 6 months. Here's one of our happy customers - Jenny had existing tooth sensitivity and was completely fine after our professional teeth whitening service.
‘I was quiet nervous as I suffer from sensitive teeth and gums, was not quite sure if I should whiten my teeth. At my consultation I was advised and assured that the treatment would not aggravate any sensitivity. True to their word I have not experienced any problems. The dentist was great and put my mind at ease and made a very nervous me totally relaxed. Now I have great looking teeth.’ Jenny Payne

How long does teeth whitening last?

We advise that generally, your teeth should retain their newfound whiteness for 18 months to 2 years following your treatment in our clinic. We strongly recommend a continuous treatment programme every 6 months to maintain your perfect, pearly white glow. Our teeth whitening aftercare page describes in further detail how to look after your teeth following your professional teeth whitening treatment. In a nutshell though, these follow the basic principles of good dental hygiene
  • Don’t smoke, or at least reduce your intake
  • Drink less coffee and tea to avoid staining
  • Choose white wine over read to avoid staining
  • Use regular toothpaste, not "whitening" toothpaste
  • Maintain a good routine of brushing twice daily, plus flossing
