The Treatment Process

 The Smile Centre's teeth whitening technician will first ask you some questions and ask you to fill in a consultation sheet, to determine if you are suitable for the treatment. 

As you relax in the chair, a cheek retractor will be placed in your mouth and a protective gum dam will be applied to your gums along with lip protection balm to your lips. The teeth whitening gel will then be applied to your teeth, protective eye glasses will be placed on your eyes and the UV accelerator light over your mouth. The first 10 minute cycle will now begin. This process is repeated up to four times depending on each individual clients needs.

Once all the cycles have finished the the whitening gel will be removed and a re-mineralization gel will be applied to help restore your teeth's enamel and to aid with any sensitivity you may have experienced during the treatment.

The technician will now remove all the materials from your mouth and show you your brand new smile! (typically 10 shades whiter)

The technician may also discuss our aftercare and maintenance range with you to maintain your new look.
