Award-winning smiles

Our teeth naturally become stained over time due to the foods and drinks we consume, as well as lifestyle factors like smoking.

Perfect for an upcoming event, teeth whitening effectively treats discolouration and staining, and we offer a range of non-invasive teeth whitening options to suit the condition of your teeth and what you want to achieve. 

We offer the award-winning Boutique professional at-home whitening for your convenience – the most trusted teeth whitening treatment in the UK.

The benefits of Boutique whitening

  • Achieved 12 major industry awards over the past 2 years

  • 60 times stronger than non-professional whitening products

  • Safe, high-strength formula developed by dental experts  

  • Easy to use, with custom-made whitening trays to fit you

  • Get brighter, whiter teeth within 2 to 3 weeks

How teeth whitening works

The active ingredient in whitening gel, either hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide, begins to break down once you place the whitening trays in your mouth, and passes safely through dental enamel. The chemical oxidation over that time causes the stains on your teeth to break down, and whitens them at the same time.

We offer Boutique whitening gels in different formula strengths for whitening during the day, and at night while you sleep. Your dentist will be able to advise which option is best for you, and your treatment plan could include a combination of both day and night whitening.

  • Day whitening
    Boutique Whitening by Day is a 6% hydrogen peroxide gel, and we recommend wearing your trays for at least 1 to 1.5 hours at a time to experience the full effect of the gel.

  • Night whitening
    Boutique by Night has a couple of different strength options – a 10% and a 16% carbamide peroxide gel – both designed to be worn overnight. Night gels are designed to be worn for at least 4 hours at a time, but for the best results, we recommend you keep the trays in overnight for 6 hours or more.

Frequently asked questions about teeth whitening at Thorpe Lea Dental

What is the difference between hydrogen peroxide and carbamide peroxide?

Arrow Down | Bow Lane Dental Group in London

The main difference between hydrogen peroxide and carbamide peroxide is how quickly it breaks down. Teeth whitening is a result of the peroxide breaking down to form oxygen free radicals which then break up larger pigment molecules into smaller, less visible molecules that can be absorbed by the body!

Carbamide peroxide is hydrogen peroxide compounded with urea, which helps to stabilise the formula, giving it a more predictable, longer shelf life than hydrogen peroxide alone. Carbamide peroxide is a more stable molecule and breaks down much more slowly than hydrogen peroxide, which is why it’s better for use over a longer period of time and better worn at night. Hydrogen peroxide is a potent oxidising agent which breaks down almost immediately, releasing active oxygen ions entirely within the first hour of use – this makes it better for wearing suing the day for shorter periods of time.

Can I whiten my teeth if I have dental veneers, crowns, or other restorations?

Arrow Down | Bow Lane Dental Group in London

You can, but we don’t recommend it. Teeth whitening will only whiten your natural teeth, and can only remove any post-treatment stains on your veneers or crowns. It’s a good idea to have your teeth whitened before you get dental restorations so they can be shade-matched to your whitened teeth.

How long will my teeth whitening last?

Arrow Down | Bow Lane Dental Group in London

Teeth whitening isn’t permanent and without proper care, the colour of your newly whitened teeth will begin to slowly fade back to your previous colour. The duration between topping up your teeth whitening depends mainly on lifestyle choices; people who smoke or consume heavily pigmented food and drinks that stain teeth, such as red wine, coffee, and curries, need teeth whitening top-ups every 3 to 4 months. If well taken care of, most people can get away with topping up their teeth whitening every 6 months or once per year.

Is teeth whitening safe?

Arrow Down | Bow Lane Dental Group in London

Yes, teeth whitening is regulated as a cosmetic product in the UK and Europe which means it must adhere to the UK and EU Cosmetic Regulations. 

Are there any side-effects?

Arrow Down | Bow Lane Dental Group in London

The main side-effect of teeth whitening is sensitivity, which is usually mild but can be more uncomfortable depending on your teeth and gums. Some people will also feel some slight irritation of the gums or lips, but both of these side-effects are temporary and will resolve after finishing your treatment.
