Teeth Whitening Benefits

Whitening your teeth offers more advantages than you might believe.

Whiter, Healthier Teeth from £260

Ignoring the obvious advantage of an improved appearance and whiter teeth, tooth whitening offers patients a lot more than a healthier-looking smile. For example, you might not know that tooth whitening actually has the power to improve your oral health, encouraging healthier gums and stronger teeth as a result. But that’s not all; as one of the most accessible, affordable cosmetic treatments, tooth whitening offers patients a wealth of benefits.

The many advantages of tooth whitening (and whiter teeth)


Thankfully, whitening your teeth is cost-effective, especially when you compare it against alternative treatments like veneers. Patients can expect tooth whitening to cost from £260 for one arch and £380 for both arches at our practice in Hertford. 

Choice of shades

Patients are in control of how bright they want their teeth to look after treatment. Depending on the brand you choose, patients can achieve lighter teeth up to 8 shades, using treatments like Zoom. Patients can achieve the ever-desired B1 shade with Enlighten Evolution, which is the lightest, most-natural looking shade available. 

Effectively removes stains

Professional tooth whitening effectively removes stains and discolouration from the teeth and can lighten teeth that have become discoloured due to various factors like age, dietary habits, smoking or certain medications. Hydrogen peroxide and carbamide peroxide break down and remove surface stains effectively, revealing a whiter, brighter smile underneath.

Boosts your appearance and confidence

It’s amazing how whiter teeth can boost your self-confidence and improve your self-esteem. A brighter, more radiant smile can significantly impact how you feel about your appearance and how you’re perceived by others. 

Quick and straightforward - repeat treatments carried out at home

The tooth whitening procedure is relatively quick and straightforward, which can often be completed in a single trip to the dentist within an hour or two if you opt for in-chair whitening. Alternatively, patients can also opt for at-home whitening kits to whiten their teeth in private, which is more convenient for patients with busy lifestyles. Once you’ve whitened your teeth with us once, it’s also entirely possible to order top-up treatments without having to revisit the dentist.

Non-invasive and fuss-free

Tooth whitening is a non-invasive treatment, which makes it nervous-patient approved. It requires no drilling or anaesthetic and is pain-free. However, tooth sensitivity is a common side effect, but we can limit this by opting for a specific brand and by using less peroxide. When you meet with our dentists for a consultation, we’ll select the most appropriate whitening method to suit your oral condition and at the same time, meet your expectations. 

Long-lasting results

Patients can enjoy long-lasting results with tooth whitening, with results lasting between 12 and 24 months depending on the brand you opt for. That said, the duration of the whitening effects will depend on your lifestyle and oral hygiene practices – limiting your exposure to beverages like coffee and wine can keep your teeth looking whiter for longer.
