Tooth Whitening at Plymouth
Book a tooth whitening consultation
Tooth whitening is an increasingly popular treatment, and we receive many requests for the procedure. Done in a dental surgery, tooth whitening is effective and safe because it is prescribed and monitored by dental professionals.
Prior to tooth-whitening treatment, it is essential to have a consultation with a dentist. The gels used are by prescription only, and it’s important that your teeth and mouth are assessed first to check that you are a suitable candidate for the treatment.
To protect the dentist’s time, we charge an initial consultation fee of £39.50.
- For patients who go ahead with the treatment, the cost of the consultation is deducted from the total fee.
- If the dentist considers tooth whitening to be an unsuitable treatment for the patient, then the cost of the consultation is refunded.
- However, if the patient decides not to proceed with the treatment the consultation fee will stand.
Phillips Zoom Whitening
At the Plymouth practice, in addition to ‘tray’ tooth whitening, Philips Zoom Whitening treatment is also available.
Unlike many other systems, Philips Zoom WhiteSpeed uses a proprietary LED light to accelerate whitening for maximum results in minimal time. After an initial consultation, treatment normally takes about an hour in the surgery.

A great smile conveys so much:
- good health
It’s no wonder patients often ask their dentists, “Can my teeth be whiter?” Fortunately, the answer is usually, “Yes!”
Whiter teeth help us to face the world with a confident smile, radiating good health and youthful energy. These days, we all want a smile that looks clean and fresh. A smile to reflect the pride we take in our own well-being.
Tooth whitening is, however, a treatment that requires proper consultation and professional expertise. Because it is a dental procedure, a qualified dental professional should always supervise whitening treatments.

The safer way to a sparkling smile.
In the right hands, tooth whitening is a safe cosmetic procedure to lighten and brighten our teeth. During our life, food, drink or even medications can cause yellowing. It is also simply one of the consequences of ageing. But professional tooth whitening can make our teeth look cleaner and fresher.
Our take-home tooth whitening treatment uses prescribed gels with customised mouth trays, so the results are much more effective than is possible with shop-bought kits. Because the mouth trays have a superior fit, the high-quality lightening gel has good contact with your teeth. The process usually takes two or three weeks, wearing the trays daily.
Some SpaDental practices also offer in-surgery whitening, which helps patients to achieve noticeably whiter teeth in a short time.
How tooth whitening helps
Tooth whitening treatment:
- creates a more youthful looking smile
- produces a noticeable change
- can give quick results
- is cost effective
Looking after your whiter teeth
Your teeth will stay whiter for longer if you brush them twice a day, floss regularly, and avoid food and drink that may cause staining.
Although results are long-lasting, they are not permanent. The good news is that your dentist can prescribe follow up gel so you can freshen up your look again using your existing mouth trays.
