Common Questions


Are the results permanent?

As your teeth are porous they will eventually re-stain. The longevity of your teeth whitening results depends on your lifestyle, oral care maintenance and how well you follow the recommended after care instructions. Typically, our clients book in for a Refresh Whitening treatment after a year or two.

Regular dental cleaning to reduce plaque prolongs whitening and is imperative for good oral health. Plaque absorbs stains much faster than your natural teeth, causes bad breath and often creates a yellow edge along the gumline and between teeth if not cleaned properly. Plaque build up can also cause gums to become red, inflamed and sometimes bleed.

Very noticeable plaque build up can interfere with the effectiveness of any whitening treatment so we recommend you have a dental clean prior to whitening.

Are the results the same as a dentist or home whitening?

Yes, the results are as good as a dentist but without the price tag.

Our treatment is far superior to home whitening kits, which may only lift tooth colour a few shades or none at all and potentially damage your teeth and gums.

Can I whiten crowns, veneers or false teeth?

The treatment will clean false teeth and in some cases brighten them back to their original colour but can not whiten them beyond this.

Speak to your technician as we can brighten up crowns, veneers or other artificial material and false teeth and then brighten your natural teeth to a similar shade to give you a more fresh look.

How long will my results last?

This depends on your lifestyle; smoking, coffee, tea, red wine and strongly pigmented foods like turmeric
can cause staining, however we can advise you on how best to reduce this. We recommend you have a Refresh Whitening treatment after 12-18 months to maintain your bright smile.

When will I see my results?

Results are instant, you will see the difference immediately!

How many shades whiter will my teeth become?

This depends on the individual and is determined by various factors such as enamel density and types of staining, as well as which whitening treatment you have. Most commonly results are 8-22 shades lighter.

I drink a lot of coffee, will the treatment work for me?

Absolutely! We use a combination of 3 premium whitening gels, which treat a range of different staining. For heavy coffee (or tea) drinkers, we recommend our Ultimate Whitening treatment.


How does teeth whitening work?

The process that whitens your teeth is called Oxidisation. This involves the whitening gel being activated by the LED light and the breakdown of oxygen that penetrates the enamel and dentin to help lessen any discolouration.

We use patented gel with special ingredients that accelerate whitening.

This accelerated whitening reaction is due to a “photo-fenton” reaction. When combined with specific wavelengths of violet, red and blue lights this has proven to enhance whitening results.

I need to get a crown/veneer, should I whiten my teeth before or after?

Definitely before!

When you get a crown or veneer, the dentist will match the colour to the shade of your natural teeth. If this is stained, the colour of your crown or veneers will also be 'stained' and cannot be lightened afterwards by teeth whitening.

Book in for teeth whitening a few weeks before your dentist appointment so we can lighten your natural teeth before the shade for your crown or veneer is chosen.

Who is NOT eligible for teeth whitening?

We may be unable to perform the teeth whitening procedure if you:

*have poor enamel or decalcification caused by excessive use of fluorides

*have a periodontal disease including gingivitis, or gums in poor condition

*have recently had oral surgery

*have decaying teeth, exposed roots or unfilled cavities

*have a history of allergic reactions to peroxide products

*wear braces

*Have severe Epilepsy, as LED lamp may trigger epileptic seizure

*Are pregnant, lactating or menstruating

*Are under the age of 16

Please note you will be required to provide a brief medical history overview and a consent form.

Is the treatment painful?

We have carefully selected the most gentle yet effective teeth whitening treatment that combines special whitening gel and desensitising detergent. Some people do however experience sensitivity during or after whitening.

We offer a Post-Whitening Re-mineralising treatment that includes a desensitising and re-mineralising gel along with LED light to reduce inflammation and bacteria. Any increased sensitivity typically passes within 48 hours, or this time is reduced with the Post-Whitening Re-mineralising treatment.

To improve or prevent sensitivity, maintain good oral health to heal or prevent inflamed or bleeding gums and gum disease, and brush teeth GENTLY to preserve enamel that protects dentin.

Is it safe for your teeth?

Yes, the natural, organic and kosher teeth whitening treatment we provide is formulated by a dentist and physician, and proven to be safe and effective.

Where do I have my treatment?

Will my teeth become sensitive after whitening?

Everyone’s tooth sensitivity is different. Many feel no sensitivity at all yet some feel some sensitivity within the first 12-48 hours. It is not uncommon to feel very minor sensitivity for the first few hours after treatment, this does not indicate any damage and will subside quickly.

Using toothpaste for sensitive teeth for 2 weeks prior to treatment can help prevent sensitivity. Natural ingredients such as clove, thyme or sage tea may also help with sensitivity. You can also ask your technician how to remineralise your teeth and reduce post-treatment tooth sensitivity.

How long does it take?

A mobile teeth whitening appointment will take between 1.5 and 4 hours depending on your required treatment. This includes set up and pack up times. In-Clinic treatments are approximately 15 minutes shorter.

LED vs laser teeth whitening

Some within the teeth whitening industry use a Laser lamp to activate the whitening gel. It is proven that heating the gel increases results however when using a laser light, it is not only the gel that is heated but also the tooth and potentially the inner part of your tooth including the nerve. Many people find that this light feels hot and can be quite painful and thus laser lights at the incorrect wavelength and temperature increase the risk of side effects such as tooth sensitivity, gum irritation, burns to the soft tissue of your gums and lips.

We only use cool, safe and specific wavelength LED lights in violet, red and blue minimising the risk of these side effects.

Blue LED light also reduces bacteria associated to gum disease and red LED light reduces gum inflammation and helps tissue repair and healing.
