Decided to try teeth whitening as my teeth had discoloured over the years and no longer matched the colour of my crown. Results were amazing! After only a few days my teeth were noticeably whiter and after only 4 weeks of using the gel my teeth were as white as my crown. I found the moulds quite comfortable and used them overnight without any problems. I still have sufficient gel to maintain my whiteness for at least a year. Best £199 I have spent in a long time.
Thank you Mr Kinghorn.

Why choose us to have your teeth whitened?
Experience and latest knowlege
We use the latest knowledge combined with the experience of performing teeth whitening for hundreds of people. Technique used gives excellent results that last. The process has been shown to be safe & reliable.
Does tooth whitening harm the teeth?
No- because we use a safe & legal method.
The kind of teeth whitening used by at Aaron Kinghorn at Elvet Dental Practice in Durham City has been used safely for many years. The most common (and usually) only side effect is that the teeth may become more sensitive during the whitening- but this stops once the course of whitening is finished.
If the teeth whitening is performed by a registered dentist or dental care professional- it is safe and legal. If your whitening is provided by someone who is not a dentist or registered dental care professional- it is illegal and there are more risks. (to find out more about this click here)
How are the teeth whitened?
Incrementally, day by day.
Custom made 'whitening trays' are fabricated to fit the teeth and a small amount of whitening gel is added into the trays. These trays are thin, not very bulky and generally well tolerated and are worn at night or for a couple of hours per day.
Is tooth whitening available on the NHS?
No, because it is a cosmetic treatment.
The NHS only supplies treatments that are clinically necessary to keep you healthy and functional. Teeth whitening is a cosmetic treatment and so can only be supplied privately or independent of the NHS
How much does whitening cost?
Yep. That's it.
Unless your teeth are very, very discoloured and then you may need Tooth Whitening Plus (£250)
I have sensitive teeth- can I still have whitening?
In almost every case there are techniques to reduce or eliminate the sensitivity associated with whitening.
Does whitening affect existing fillings, crowns and other dental restorations?
Crowns, fillings and other dental restorations will not whiten or change shade.
FIllings, crowns and bridges will largely stay the same shade. Teeth whitening will not damage any dental fillings or crowns.
What about laser whitening or other in-surgery methods e.g Zoom whitening?
I've used Zoom and other systems and this method has proved to be the best.
Experience of performing both methods and many cases has confirmed to me that the best results are through the teeth whitening system used at the practice here in Durham.
How Long does tooth whitening last for?
In most people, years.
Once you have finished a course of tooth whitening it would normally take years to return to the shade you started out with.
However, the shade of the teeth can by retained by following our maintenance plan- keeping your smile white for years on years.
