Returning home with a bright new smile will improve your appearance and boost your self-confidence. What better way to show off a tan?

The procedure will only take a couple of hours out of your holiday, and our dentists are in convenient locations so you can have your teeth whitening and be back on the beach in no time at all.
The length of time depends on whether you are having laser teeth whitening in a dentist’s clinic or whether you are using the at-home professional whitening kits. Both methods use a gel containing a bleaching agent, with the in-house laser system being considerably stronger.
Laser Teeth Whitening:
Laser teeth whitening provides the most effective results which are immediately noticeable. This is most people’s preferred method of teeth whitening and takes around 2 hours.
The procedure involves the application of the gel to your teeth, and the laser beam is used to activate the bleaching agent in the gel. The gel is applied in 3 x 20 minute intervals and the laser activated after each application. Before the procedure starts your dentist will be careful to ensure the soft tissues in your mouth are covered so the gel only comes into contact with your teeth. You will also be given protective goggles to protect your eyes. After the final application all traces of the gel will be removed, and your teeth cleaned thoroughly to complete the procedure.
Professional Home Whitening Kits:
You will need to have a custom-made tray that fits over your teeth where the gel can be applied. Your dentist will make an impression on your teeth, which is sent to the lab for the trays to be made.
After a few days you will need to go back to your dentist to pick up the trays and the gel. You will be shown how to use them, but you will probably need to wear them for a period of weeks overnight.
Many people who have laser teeth whitening often get the home whitening kits as well, so they can keep their new smile as white as possible.
