Tooth Whitening – Make your Smile Shine!

Tooth whitening is a safe, non-invasive, clinical treatment. It can often be an effective alternative to cosmetic veneers and crowns, offering a complete smile makeover, with a take-home treatment.

Teeth whitening should only be performed by a dentist or regulated dental professional, such as a dental hygienist or dental therapist, on the prescription of a dentist. At Urchfont Dental Care, all clinical options are discussed with our patients before we start a tooth whitening treatment.

Which whitening system is best for me?

At Urchfont Dental Care we offer two different whitening systems. The information below is to help you decide which system would suit you best.

Opalescence PF

Opalescence take-home whitening gel offers professional results in a customised whitening treatment you can do in the comfort of your own home. Available in a range of formulations and flavours, Opalescence take-home whitening gel is delivered via custom-made trays, further tailoring the treatment to your smile. Opalescence take-home whitening gel allows you to get professional whitening results at your convenience in a safe, effective, and customised way!

  • Opalescence tooth whitening gel contains PF (potassium nitrate and fluoride). Potassium nitrate has been shown to help reduce sensitivity.
