Some Warnings:

Some people find their teeth to be sensitive throughout the process. This is usually temporary and managed with a sensitive tooth paste. Please inform your dentist is you have this problem.

We don’t advise the purchase of unregulated whitening gels from the internet due to the potential risk of them being mildly acidic, abrasive, harmful and damaging.

While whitening works on natural teeth. It has no effect on the crowns and bridges and fillings. These dental restorations may need to be changed at the end of the whitening procedure and this will be explained to you from the outset.

At Stoke Road Dental Practice we use a gel that is accepted by the GDC / EU Council Directive 2011/84/EU . That is a tooth whitening gel containing upto 6% Hydrogen Peroxide (present or released).
