What are Lumineers?

Lumineers are thin porcelain shields that are bonded to the front of your teeth to create dramatic improvements to your smile.

What is tooth whitening?

As teeth age they become darker. By applying a whitening agent we can reverse this process, and give people whiter and brighter smiles.

How long does tooth whitening last?

 The effect of tooth whitening lasts about 18 months. Heavy smokers may find this time reduced to a degree. Patients with the customised gum-shields can just purchase some more of the whitening agent, thereby cutting the costs.

If I had tooth whitening will my crown and veneers go whiter?

No, porcelains will not respond to the tooth whitening agent. If you are thinking of having your teeth crowned or veneered, it’s a good idea to whiten your teeth first and have the new crown or veneers made to that shade.

Will tooth whitening damage my teeth and gums?

It is well researched that teeth are not damaged by whitening. Almost 25% of patients experience a temporary sensitivity in our experience. An anti-inflammatory tablet will counteract this. Tooth whitening actually helps gums by increasing the oxygen flow to the gum margins.

Are there alternatives to tooth whitening?

 A visit to our hygienist will remove stains from your teeth and restore them to their natural colour. Heavily filled teeth may benefit cosmetically from crowns and veneers. We would be glad to advise you on this option.
