How does professional teeth whitening work?

Professional teeth whitening is an ideal way to brighten your smile and restore your confidence. Here's how the teeth whitening process works at our Surrey dental office.


Fact is, teeth naturally darken as we age. Teeth can also be stained by taking certain medications, smoking, and frequently enjoying dark coloured food and drinks such as curry, cola, coffee, and tea. 

Professional teeth whitening is a simple and non-invasive way make your smile bright again.

At Guildford Smiles Dentistry, we offer custom professional teeth whitening systems to help you keep your smile looking it's best.

Our Professional Teeth Whitening Process

When you come to our office for professional teeth whitening we will take impressions of your teeth to create custom whitening trays fitted perfectly to your smile.

Then we will take the time to record the "before" shade of your teeth in order to monitor your progress.

When you come to our dental office to pick up your trays, we will also provide you with enough whitening gel to complete your first treatment.

Your custom whitening trays will fit snugly over your teeth, and hold the whitening gel in place on the surface of your teeth.

Depending on how stained your teeth are, you can use your whitening trays for an hour to several hours a day for two weeks in order to achieve a whiter smile quickly.

There is no need to worry about having a too-white smile. Bleaching your teeth simply lightens stains and will not give you a smile that looks fake or unnatural.

While whitening your teeth, if you experience tooth sensitivity, just cut back on the number of hours you wear your trays or take a day off in between treatments.

Following your whitening treatment we will take an 'after shade' to measure your results.

Store your whitening trays in a safe place after you complete your initial treatment. You will be able to reuse your custom fitted trays again for touch-ups. Just contact our office when you need refills of the whitening solution.
