The compass that guides us
At our dental practice we take great pride in the work that we do. I am writing this blog to…
Teeth whitening is a simple, non-abrasive and effective way of lightening the colour of your teeth. It is a form of Cosmetic Dentistry which can have a significant effect on the appearance of your smile.
At Infinity Dental Clinic we will also show you how to keep your teeth whiter for longer.

At Infinity Dental Clinic we use a range of procedures to achieve the result you want:
PROFESSIONAL TEETH WHITENING: At Infinity Dental Clinic we provide the Professional teeth whitening techniques which will brighten the shade of your smile. Our teeth whitening system will result in the whitest natural shade of tooth for your mouth. If you chose professional whitening, models of your teeth are prepared so that our specialist laboratory can construct bespoke whitening trays for you.
HOME TEETH WHITENING SYSTEM: Models of your teeth are taken so that the laboratory can construct teeth whitening trays. These trays are designed for home use using a safe form of Dentist prescribed hydrogen peroxide (carbamide peroxide gel). Your Dentist will advise you how to use them. They will need to be worn overnight or for a few hours, usually over a two week period.
This is a very simple system to use, putting you in control. You can choose how often and for how long you wish to whiten your teeth. You can then buy top-up whitening gels to whiten your teeth further, or whenever you feel the need to whiten your teeth again.
INTERNAL BLEACHING: Your Dentist will prescribe this treatment for individually discoloured teeth caused by previous injury or endodontic treatment. It involves placing whitening gel into the chamber of the tooth and usually requires 3-4 sessions over a 6-8 week period.
We will take pictures of your teeth before and after treatment – you will be amazed by the results.
Some people may experience sensitivity during treatment. These symptoms are usually temporary and subside soon after finishing treatment. We provide desensitising pastes to help minimise this.
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.
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’ using your whitening trays.Book for a complimentary consultation with our experienced treatment co-ordinator
