Why whiten your teeth?

Many people say they feel years younger after having treatment, erasing the effects of ageing, coffee, red wine and cigarettes. The difference with Boutique Whitening is the results. Follow your dentist’s guidance and your teeth will whiten beyond any other whitening system available on the market.

How does it work?

Tooth colour is genetically determined just like hair colour, though unlike hair, teeth tend to darken naturally with age. Over time, teeth can become superficially stained by coffee, red wine and tobacco, which is generally easier to remove. Internal staining can be more difficult to remove, and may develop as a result of illness, certain medication or when the tooth nerve ‘dies’. Tooth whitening works by increasing the permeability of your teeth to oxygen, which helps to break down stain molecules within the enamel.

Your treatment typically involves 2 to 3 weeks of home whitening using either a day or overnight system to reach their maximum whiteness. You will be given whitening trays; specially designed custom-made trays that make tooth whitening predictable, reliable and successful.

Will it be painful?

The majority of patients will experience some degree of sensitivity. You will be given Biomin® toothpaste to take home with you, which will help to relieve any sensitivity you have. Biomin®
is a fluoride-based sensitivity toothpaste with Bioglass (bio-engineered glass matrix filled with mineral ions), providing unrivalled nourishment and comfort for your teeth.

How white will my teeth get?

Your teeth can whiten up to 16 shades lighter! Results vary but, if used correctly, all teeth will whiten dramatically. Be assured your smile will still look natural and not too artificially white. The treatment doesn’t work on crowns, veneers or white fillings, so you may choose to have them replaced afterwards so they match the new shade of your teeth.

How will I keep my teeth white afterwards?

Maintaining your white smile has never been easier. We recommend topping up once per month depending on your lifestyle. Once you have finished your treatment, additional syringes of whitening gel are available from reception


Patient Testimonial

I have been going to St. James for a few years and it was the best decision ever for me to choose St. James as the practice to look after my teeth (which need a lot of looking after!)

For the first time ever, my teeth were stable enough to have some minor whitening and composite treatment to enhance their appearance.
