Teeth Whitening, understanding
Over time our teeth can become stained from Coffee, Tea, Red Wine, smoking and even certain medications can cause yellowing on teeth.
If you are unhappy with the colour of your teeth, then this can be easily fixed by Teeth Whitening treatments. There are many different treatments, all of which use a safe dental bleaching gel by a qualified dentist. Our dentist will do their best to ensure you achieve the desired shade of whitening and you can choose from In Surgery Whitening and Day or Night Home Whitening treatments.
In chair Teeth Whitening
Zoom (2 hours)
After your teeth have been given a check up and are deemed suitable for Teeth Whitening, a safe Whitening Gel (we use Philips Zoom) will be applied to your teeth whilst in the dental chair which will then be activated by the Phillips Zoom Light.
We will check during the process to ensure the whitening gel is working effectively.
At the end of the 2 hour treatment take a look in the mirror and see your pearly whites! The 2 hour session is great for those who want quick results and can make a 2 hour appointment.
(You may also require Customer Whitening trays should you require further home treatment or just a touch up every now and again.
Home Teeth Whitening
After your teeth have been checked and are suitable for Whitening, we will take a mould of your teeth so that a custom set of trays can be made.
At a second appointment you will collect your trays and we will provide you with a Day or Night Teeth Whitening kit – whatever works best for you.
You will wear the trays (as per your dentist’s instructions) for two to three weeks. Home whitening is great if you can’t make a 2 hour appointment and are happy to wait a little bit longer for a whiter smile!
Plus, you get to keep the trays so if you feel your teeth need a little whitening in 6, 12, 24 months then you can purchase the Phillips Zoom Gel from us to use at home.

Frequently asked Questions
You may experience some sensitivity or discomfort after having teeth whitening treatment, however this shouldn’t last very long, typically a few hours sometimes a few days.
If this is the case, we advise the use of a sensitive toothpaste. This will help with any sensitivity afterwards.
That’s totally up to you! We have a colour chart, so you can identify the colour of your teeth now against which colour you prefer so we know what to achieve. We can then work out the amount of gel to use and how long for. The colour of your teeth should then match your chosen shade of white.
We have many patients at Bromsgrove Dental Clinic that are a massive fan of the Home Teeth Whitening as well as the In-chair Phillips Zoom.
Therefore, it all depends on you as an individual.
