Teeth whitening is one of the most popular ways to add confidence and shine to your smile.

At Walmsley Dental, we’re always happy to help our patients find a happier, brighter, better smile. With teeth whitening treatments, we can help you add confidence to your smile in a simple, effective, and affordable way.


What is teeth whitening?

This cosmetic dentistry treatment uses a bleaching agent – usually hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide – to penetrate the tooth enamel and break down discoloured molecules. This then leaves the teeth looking whiter and your smile much brighter.

What happens during the treatment?

At Walmsley Dental, we’ve chosen to work with WhiteWash teeth whitening, which is a home-based treatment. This means the treatment will be safely carried out under our outstanding supervision, with you whitening your teeth in the comfort of your own home and in your own time.

We’ll first get you fitted for your gel trays, and then you’ll be able to use them at home with either a day or night formula.

How long does the treatment take?

Most home-based teeth whitening treatments take up to two weeks to produce results.

How often do I have to wear my trays?

You should wear your trays every day for 1-2 hours or overnight every night in order to produce the results you’re looking for in the shortest amount of time possible.

Will it hurt?

Teeth whitening shouldn’t be painful – especially when done under the supervision of a professional. WhiteWash uses a higher fluoride content to help reduce any sensitivity for the patient, as well as aloe vera to make the experience extra comfortable.

Is it safe?

All dentist-approved teeth whitening products are completely safe to use. There are other teeth whitening products available on the market, but unless they carry a dentist’s approval, their safety and efficacy cannot be assured.

Will the treatment damage my tooth enamel?

Any teeth whitening treatment that has been approved by professionals and is carried out under a dentist’s supervision will be completely safe and pose no danger to the enamel of your teeth.

Can restorations, veneers, and composite bonding be treated?

Unfortunately, restorations such as crowns, veneers, and composite bonding do not respond to teeth whitening treatments. If you are considering any of these cosmetic or restorative treatments as well as teeth whitening, then we should first carry out the teeth whitening, so that the restoration and cosmetic treatment can be accurately shade-matched.

Are there any foods I should avoid while doing the treatment?

We recommend avoiding acidic foods while doing the treatment, as your teeth will be more sensitive to them. You should also try to avoid or really cut down on your intake of food and beverages that are known to stain the teeth. These include tea, coffee, red wine, coloured sports drinks, and heavily coloured foods.

How much whiter will my teeth be?

The outcome of your treatment will vary depending on the shade of your teeth beforehand, as well as on genetics and lifestyle.

How long will the results last?

Most teeth whitening treatments produce results that last up to six months. To maintain your result, you may wish to “top-up” by whitening for a few nights every six months – if this is something you’re interested in, make sure to discuss it with your team here first.
