Tooth whitening is one of the most popular cosmetic dental treatments available and it’s no surprise why, being minimally-invasive, producing effective and long-lasting results and restoring confidence in patients who have been unhappy with their smile.
Tooth whitening should only ever be performed or overseen by a qualified medical professional such as a dentist or a doctor; our team is made up of highly trained dental professionals who know that every patient is different. Here at Keppel Advanced Dentistry, we create the whitening trays to be an exact fit for your teeth by creating impressions (moulds) of your teeth. These impressions are then used to create the custom whitening trays to which a whitening agent is applied.
Why it’s essential to have this procedure performed by a medical professional
There are medically unqualified individuals offering tooth whitening, for example beauty therapists, who use a ‘one-size-fits-all’ approach to creating the whitening trays. This renders patients susceptible to irrevocable gum damage, as the whitening agent can leak over the side of the trays.

The benefits of tooth whitening
- Restore confidence in yourself and your smile.
- Have a healthier smile.
- ‘Reset’ your dental hygiene – before the tooth whitening process begins, we will perform a deep clean (known as a scale and polish) of your teeth, to remove any tenacious staining in the form of plaque and tartar. This gives you the opportunity to change any bad habits when it comes to dental hygiene, setting you on the path to a healthier smile.
- Bespoke treatment – as mentioned above, the whitening trays are made to measure and you will also be able to choose the shade you would like your teeth to be.
- Reverse the effects of certain lifestyle choices – smoking, excessive alcohol consumption, certain medication that prevents the stimulation of saliva and diet can all be the cause of tooth staining. Tooth whitening is a non-invasive way of reversing the cosmetic wear and tear caused by these factors.
