Tooth whitening is usually the best way of making teeth whiter, and causes no permanent tooth damage when the correct techniques are used. Tooth whitening is a dental treatment and must only be done under professional supervision: it is illegal and, more importantly, potentially dangerous for anyone other than a dentist to undertake tooth whitening.

At Harbour Dental we offer Zoom Whitespeed In-Surgery tooth whitening or a home whitening kit alternative.

Zoom Whitespeed is our quickest, easiest way to effectively whiten teeth achieving up to 6 shades lighter in only 1 hour and this is carried out in the surgery.

Alternatively we also offer home tooth whitening where we provide you with custom-fitting tooth whitening trays and you safely perform the tooth whitening procedure in the comfort of your own home.

A small proportion of teeth can’t be whitened but other options, such as porcelain veneers, may be a suitable way to make these teeth whiter.
