Teeth whitening is a cosmetic procedure available at our dental clinic in Chelsea, London. It’s the quickest and most effective way to improve the appearance of your smile.

The natural whiteness and brightness of teeth fade over time. Discolouration and staining can occur as a result of coffee, tea, red wine and cigarettes.

The purpose of teeth whitening is to restore your teeth to their natural, white colour. This treatment will allow you to enjoy a glossy and healthy smile that you can be proud of.

Professional teeth whitening treatment can achieve in one hour what toothpaste and mouthwash could never accomplish alone. No matter how hard or long you try, only professional teeth whitening can enhance the shade of your teeth.

With advancements in technology, teeth whitening has never been quicker or more comfortable. As a result, there is minimal risk of increased sensitivity, and your teeth won’t be weaker as a result of the treatment.

Why choose The Wellington Clinic for teeth whitening in London?

We use the latest, most sophisticated teeth whitening equipment at our dental clinic on King’s Road in Chelsea. This means we can guarantee both safety and long-lasting results.

You can choose between in-clinic teeth whitening, at-home teeth whitening, or a combination of both. Our in-clinic procedure – delivered by our highly trained, fully qualified, GDC (General Dental Council) registered dentists – is pain-free, takes just one hour and provides immediate results.

Our at-home teeth whitening system is easy to use and can be completed from the comfort of your own home. Teeth whitening is more accessible than ever before, allowing everyone to enjoy the benefits of a stunning white smile.

How does in-clinic laser teeth whitening work?

For the in-clinic teeth whitening in London, the dentist will first apply a whitening gel to your teeth. This specialist gel works with the laser whitener to gently penetrate the surface layer of your teeth, removing stains and discolouration as it does so.

 

Before laser teeth whitening, we’ll cover your gums with a shield to protect them. Next, teeth whitening gel is applied directly to the teeth, and then we shine the whitening laser inside your mouth. This intense light activates the ingredients in the tooth whitening gel.

Treatment is generally completed in three fifteen to twenty-minute sessions. Between sessions, we may recommend a hygienist cleaning, checking and gel re-application, if necessary.

At the end of the treatment, your teeth will look dramatically whiter, with no increase in sensitivity or tooth weakening.

How do I use the at-home whitening kits?

Our at-home kits allow you to whiten your teeth from the comfort of your home in a timeframe that suits you. For optimal results, we recommend using it once per night for at least two weeks. The home whitening kit is simple and easy to use, and we’ll give you complete instructions outlining every step in the treatment. 

In short, it involves the dentist taking an impression of your teeth to create a custom mouthguard, which you then apply a whitening gel to and wear overnight while sleeping. These kits are superior to the off-the-shelves ones available in shops, with better, long-lasting results.

Why choose a teeth whitening specialist?

Our specialist teeth whitening team in Chelsea, London, can provide expert care and support throughout your teeth whitening journey. Trusting a dentist or teeth whitening specialist with your treatment is essential, as teeth whitening carries the risk of damaging your teeth and gums.

Teeth whitening uses strong chemicals which can penetrate the tooth, oxidise staining particles and flush them out. These chemicals are safe when administered by a dentist but can damage teeth and gums if mishandled.

Choosing our teeth whitening dentist to manage your treatment in our Chelsea dental practice will ensure stunning results with no damage to your teeth or gums.

Using over-the-counter teeth whitening substances is likely to be ineffective, and trusting an unlicensed individual to manage your treatment may lead to severe burns in your mouth. Dehydration of the tooth is also a risk that can easily be addressed when you choose professional, dentist-supervised treatment.

What can’t be achieved with teeth whitening?

Teeth whitening will only be effective on natural teeth, and some stains cannot be lifted with whitening alone. 

Whitening won’t change the shade of prosthetics such as dental implants, crowns, bridges and veneers. Instead, we recommend a hygienist cleaning to help keep your restorations looking beautiful.

The results a teeth whitening dentist can achieve are also limited if the discolouration is caused by trauma to the tooth or medications. In complex cases, we can recommend alternative treatments. 

Alternatives to teeth whitening include veneers, crowns and composite bonding. These restorations will conceal complex tooth discolouration issues that cannot be addressed with traditional teeth whitening methods.

The results of teeth whitening

Whether whitening your teeth in-clinic or at home, no tooth enamel is removed or damaged during the process, and as the procedure is painless, no injections are required. 

The teeth whitening results typically last around three years, but even at that point, your teeth will still be considerably whiter than they were before the treatment. With our at-home treatments, you will have custom trays ready to
