The Procedure

Once you’ve both made the decision to go ahead, you’ll then be fitted for a custom-made gum tray. Whitening gel is placed in this tray, which you wear for a few hours at a time at home. Your tooth-whitening treatment can be customised to give you the degree of whitening that you desire (this is dependent on the degree of staining). So that everyone can benefit from this very effective cosmetic treatment, we offer a range of competitive pricing and finance options.
