Teeth Whitening in Fulham: Your Questions Answered



Professional teeth whitening in Fulham is one of our most popular treatments for a reason - it is simple, non-invasive, and the finished product makes for a brighter, more attractive smile.


You will inevitably notice staining on your teeth over time and as you age, especially if you are a keen coffee or tea drinker, smoke, or are partial to strong-hued foods like berries, tomato sauces and curries.


At New Smile Fulham, you can choose to whiten your teeth at home or extend your whitening with a single short appointment at our state-of-the-art dental practice in Fulham.


Like any cosmetic dental treatment, you might want to know the ins and outs of the teeth whitening process before going ahead. To help, we have compiled answers to some of our patients’ most frequently asked questions:


What do our Fulham dentists use to whiten teeth?

At New Smile Fulham, you can choose to whiten your teeth from home or at our dental practice in Fulham.


Enlighten whitening is our in-surgery choice. It uses a carbamide peroxide bleaching gel that increases the permeability of your teeth. It encourages oxygenation, which breaks down stubborn stain molecules.


If you opt for power whitening alongside your home-based treatment, we will use an LED accelerator to speed up the process; this creates longer-lasting and more impressive results.


Boutique whitening is a professional teeth whitening system that can only be prescribed by a dentist. The system is designed to fit in with your lifestyle, as you can choose from a day formula (which requires 1.5 hours wear time per day) and four overnight gels which will whiten your teeth overnight as you sleep.



How does home whitening work?

We will take impressions and provide you with bleaching trays that fit over your teeth. You will fill these with bleaching gel and wear them during the day, or night, for two weeks.


At the end of your treatment, you can choose to accelerate your results even further with a short, in-surgery appointment. We will apply a bleaching gel to your teeth and use a gel-activating light to elevate your results.


How long does teeth whitening last?


Whitening can last anywhere from a few months up to three years before your teeth return to their original colour. However, the lifespan of your teeth whitening treatment depends on your oral health and dietary habits.


If you are partial to tea and coffee, or dark-hued foods like curry and tomato-based sauces, then stains are likely to re-form on your teeth more quickly.


Filling your trays with gel and wearing them one night a week every other month can help prolong results.


How much does it cost?


We offer cost-effective treatment for teeth whitening in Fulham. Prices for Boutique whitening start from £295, and prices for Enlighten start from £495.


What are the benefits?

Our patients are always over the moon with their results! Whitening makes your teeth look brighter and healthier, giving you the confidence to smile proudly again.


Over-the-counter whitening toothpaste and strips do not have the same effect as professional whitening treatments. Whether you choose the home or in-surgery options, Enlighten guarantees you a brighter, whiter smile like no other - and it has a 98% success rate.


Is teeth whitening safe?

Teeth whitening is completely safe if the treatment is carried out by a trained dental professional, like the cosmetic dentists at New Smile Fulham.


We advise that you steer clear of over-the-counter whitening kits - cosmetic treatments should always be overseen by a dental professional. These kits may be ineffective or even damaging to your teeth.


Both home and in-surgery whitening may cause some sensitivity at first, which can last until your treatment is complete.
