Teeth Whitening

Have brilliant white teeth…

Teeth darken with age and from tea, coffee, cigarettes and red wine. At Dental Studio you could have a bright dazzling smile in just over an hour.  Opalescence Boost is a professional tooth whitening agent, of which the active ingredient is 38% Hydrogen Peroxide and 10% carbamide peroxide in a glycerine base. This is an effective way of lightening your teeth to their natural colour. The result will vary from person to person, depending of the natural shading of the teeth.

After completion of the tooth whitening treatment, we will provide our patient with an at home whitening kit, including 2 custom made trays and opalescence home whitening agent. This is used to maintain the whiteness of your teeth to ensure a confident smile.

How safe is teeth whitening?

Teeth whitening is a clinically approved procedure and hundreds of studies have proved:

  • There is no enamel reduction
  • There is no enamel softening
  • There is no damage or alteration of tooth structure

What sensitivity can I expect?

  • You can expect a dull toothache. Or what we call “zingers” which is a sort of pain you occasionally get when eating an ice cream.

By using desensitising toothpaste, containing fluoride and potassium nitrate, you can assist the teeth to hydrate. We also provide our patients with Ultra-EZ trays, which will assist with any discomfort.


Whitening is not recommended during pregnancy, for lactating woman or children under 14years of age.

"I have been going to Dr Nico for many years now,, and not only is he a great dentist, but he is extremely considerate of my fear of needles and going to the dentist in general. He takes extra time to make you feel safe and comfortable and doesn’t rush the process. I would highly recomend him to anyone, but especially anyone with fears of going to the dentist."
