Teeth whitening treatments are designed to bring your teeth back to its natural colour. This means that results will vary from one person to another depending on the level of staining prior to treatment and the natural colour of your teeth. Generally you will see a difference of 1-2 shades lighter right up to 6 shades. For optimal results we advise to complete a 40 minute session to ensure maximum activity of the LED light. Lifestyle factors such as coffee, foods, smoking and alcohol may vary results of the treatment.
Yes! Our teeth whitening system is a non-invasive treatment that uses a cool LED light. This means no harmful UV light is used during treatment. The gel applied to the teeth is classed as food grade ensuring that there are no dangers if the product is unintentionally swallowed or ingested. Studies over the last 10 years have classified teeth whitening as a safe and effective treatment with minimal sensitivity providing you have no intolerance to hydrogen peroxide.
Teeth whitening treatments can be performed however there is a risk of slight variances with colour shades and outcome of treatment. This is because the surface of the veneers differ from the natural tooth. Slight variances should even themselves out within 24-48 hrs.
Although there is no evidence that the treatment poses any risk to your baby, MySkin advises that it is best not to undergo the treatment whilst pregnant.

Teeth whitening is a painless, non-invasive treatment. On occasion, you may feel slight sensitivity to the gel however this is very rare. Your teeth may have slight sensitivity when eating or drinking hot and cold products, however this usually is only a short-term effect.
While there is no clinical evidence that teeth whitening treatments counteract with any particular injectables, it is important to let your clinician know if you have had an injectable treatment, or are planning on having one done in the near future. Your clinician will be able to advise you on when to schedule your treatment appropriately.
