What is professional teeth whitening?
Teeth whitening at Infinity Dental Clinic is a simple, safe and effective way of lightening the colour of your teeth. It is a popular form of Cosmetic Dentistry which can have a significant improvement on the appearance of your smile.
Our team at Infinity Dental Clinic will also provide you with aftercare by showing you how to keep your teeth whiter for longer.
At Infinity Dental Clinic we use the latest and most state-of-the-art technology to provide our patients with the highest standards of care in Cosmetic Dentistry. Our intra-oral digital scanners allow us to provide our patients with bespoke, advanced dental care without any delays.
Types of teeth whitening:
Professional home teeth whitening
This is the most popular teeth whitening system as it is very predictable and enables our patients to maintain the white shade of their teeth very easily at home. Bespoke whitening trays are made to fit over the surfaces of all of your teeth. These trays are designed for home use using Dentist prescribed teeth whitening gel. Our dental team will advise you how to effectively use them. They will need to be worn overnight or for a few hours during the day, usually over a two – four week period.
This is a very simple system to use, putting you in control of the result. You can choose how often and for how long you wish to whiten your teeth. You can then simply use top-up teeth whitening gels to whiten your teeth further, or whenever you feel the need to whiten your teeth in the future.
Internal teeth whitening
Your Dentist will prescribe this treatment for individually discoloured teeth caused by previous injury or endodontic (root canal) treatment. It involves placing teeth whitening gel into the chamber of the tooth and usually requires 3-4 sessions over a 6-8 week period. This is the ideal treatment solution for patients who have just one or two discoloured teeth.
Teeth whitening results
We will take clinical pictures of your teeth before and after treatment – you will be amazed by the results.
We can advise how white your teeth will be following treatment to ensure that you achieve the right shade for your smile. You are in control and you will decide which colour is best for you.
Teeth whitening FAQs
How long does Teeth Whitening last?
You can expect the whitening result from your teeth whitening to last for a couple of years. The more you try limiting things that stain your teeth including red wine, coffee and smoking, the longer the results will last.
If you start to see the colour of your teeth fading a little, simply top it back up again. Remember that your whitening trays will last for many years so just ask our team for another syringe of whitening gel and regain your brilliant white smile.
How can I keep my teeth white?
To keep your teeth beautifully white after treatment, cut down on the amount of food and drinks which stain your teeth. Items such as tea, coffee, red wine and turmeric should not be consumed too frequently. It is advisable to stop smoking as this is one of the main causes of stained teeth.
Regular sessions with our hygienist are recommended to not only keep your teeth looking cleaner, but also to keep your gums healthier.
If you notice your teeth discolouring again, simply ‘top-up’ the whitening using your bespoke whitening trays for a few days.
Will Teeth Whitening make my teeth sensitive?
Some people may experience sensitivity during tooth whitening treatment. These symptoms are only temporary and will subside soon after finishing treatment. We provide desensitising toothpastes with our Teeth Whitening to help minimise this.
Is Teeth Whitening safe?
There is no damaged caused to your teeth by using professional Tooth Whitening. As long as you use the gels provided by your Dentist, we know that it is safe for your teeth.
How much does Teeth Whitening cost?
Here at Infinity Dental Clinic we work hard to find a solution that meets all our patients expectations on desired outcome both clinically and financially.
We will supply you with all relevant treatment options and the associated prices involved, allowing you to make the right decision for you regarding your professional Teeth Whitening care.
We also offer a range of finance options which can be discussed with our experienced treatment coordinators to help you spread the investment in a manageable way.
Should I use a whitening toothpaste?
Whitening toothpastes alone will not lighten the natural colour of your teeth. They may however remove some surface staining, as they can be very abrasive. Therefore, we do not recommend the use of whitening toothpastes as it can cause loss of the surface enamel. Professional Teeth Whitening is the safer way to whiter teeth.

Undergoing teeth whitening following discussion With Dr Hannah Wilson she led me through the process explaining procedure and the safety implications involved. I am absolutely thrilled with the results and the care I received throughout the treatment.
As an over 50’s patient with not-so-good teeth, from the moment I had my first appointment with Dr Wilson, I was impressed with her listening, then with her assessment of the treatment options available to me, including their longevity and durability risks. Subsequent root canal, crown and wisdom tooth removal were performed skilfully and with great re-assurance and communication during the treatments.
Dr Wilson has my complete trust; I am that pleased and confident in my teeth. I always appreciate a quick sharp mind, excellent ‘to the point’ communication and technical knowledge; coupled with her drive and enthusiasm, Dr Wilson does not disappoint.
I recently had some cosmetic dentistry done at Infinity Dental Clinic and couldn’t be happier with the end result and the level of care I received throughout. Dr Patel and Dr Wilson who treated me were both very friendly and professional and continue to be so during my routine appointments, as do all the staff. A very welcoming, pleasant and well run practice that I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending.
I have recently finished cosmetic treatment at Infinity Dental and cannot recommend them enough.
From my initial consultation appointment, Dr Wilson was really thorough and gave advice on the best course of action for me. From this point the dental coordinators talked me through all the appointments & pricing and at no time did I feel pressured into going ahead.
I had my first hygiene appointment with Claire & can honestly say my mouth and teeth have never felt so clean and fresh after! I’d not had a hygiene appointment before and Claire gave me great advice on how to keep my mouth, teeth & gums healthy and I’ve been following her advice since.
The rest of the appointments with Dr Wilson included impressions, teeth whitening and then composite bonding. I’m so happy with the final results and have had many compliments on my new smile.
The reception team have been helpful throughout and are very friendly and kind.
The practice itself is so welcoming, the reception and waiting area is bright and immaculate!
Looking forward to coming back for my next dental check up and hygiene appointment (never said that about the dentist before)!
I had never been happy with my smile and I thought nothing could ever be done about it. Dr Patel promised to give me ‘the smile’ and he certainly did an exceptional job!
I have waited so long to have a smile like this and I am over the moon with the result. Thank you so much for all your hard work. I will be forever grateful to you
