Dental care

How does tooth whitening work?

A: Tooth whitening gels contain Carbamide Peroxide which is dispensed into the custom fitted trays and worn over the teeth. Gel releases oxygen which penetrates the tooth enamel down to the dentine - lightening without harming your teeth.

Q: How long does it last?

A: Once whitened, your teeth should stay at that colour permanently. Over time your teeth may discolour through drinking, certain foods and the natural aging process, you can simply re-apply the gel to top up the procedure, you can order gel separately from BrilliantSmiles.

Q: Who can benefit from tooth whitening?

A: Almost everyone. Tooth whitening works best for people who have healthy, un-restored teeth and would like a whiter, brighter smile. Tetracycline discolorations and artificial dental work are usually not greatly responsive to dental bleaching.
