Whether their teeth have become discoloured naturally over the years, or as a result of other factors such as smoking, we know many of our patients choose cosmetic teeth whitening to restore their confidence in their smiles.
At 32Whites, we offer two teeth whitening systems:
- Home Whitening
- In-Surgery Whitening
At-Home Teeth Whitening
This treatment option involves loading bespoke trays with the whitening gel and wearing them on your teeth overnight for 5-6 nights. At-home teeth whitening involves the use of special trays that are custom-made to fit your mouth. These hold the whitening gel in contact with your teeth surfaces to create a brighter, whiter aesthetic.
One of the biggest benefits of at-home teeth whitening is that the trays can be stored and used again (as long as there are no major changes to the shape of your teeth). On the other hand, some patients do find wearing the trays overnight slightly uncomfortable, and this can lead to temporary sensitivity.
The follow-up for our at-home teeth whitening option is essentially a ‘top up’ – you would only need to purchase more whitening gel rather than new trays.
In-Surgery Teeth Whitening
The in-surgery option means the whitening procedure is carried out here at the 32Whites dental surgery, with the addition of custom-made trays intended for use at home.
During this procedure, we’ll keep your mouth’s soft tissues (teeth and gums) protected by isolating the tooth surfaces being whitened. We’ll then apply whitening gel to your tooth surfaces and shine a special light onto the teeth. This light activates the gel, which in turn lightens and brightens your teeth. In total, we’ll carry out three 15 minute cycles, washing out and applying a fresh layer of gel for every cycle. The total whitening procedure is fairly quick, and shouldn’t take longer than an hour.
This is a popular option for our patients as the effects are instant – no overnight tray-wearing! If a single tooth is sensitive, we have the flexibility to remove the gel from that tooth alone and continue work on the rest of your smile.

It’s worth remembering that no teeth whitening system is permanent, and mild, temporary sensitivity is a common side effect. That being said, these treatments are very popular for those looking to improve their smile quickly and gain confidence in their teeth again.
We always start with a dental consultation to make sure the treatment is right for you.
