Having your teeth whitened is one of the simplest and fastest ways to give your smile that extra shine. It’s safe, effective and the results can be brilliant. At Monkstown Dental we use three different tooth whitening treatments:
In-Surgery Bleaching

This procedure uses the Zoom professional whitening system and usually takes 2 hours.

At your appointment our in-house specialist will apply a bleaching gel to the surfaces of your teeth. This gel will be activated using a high-intensity light to speed up the whitening process. Once you reach your desired shade we will apply a post-treatment gel which will help protect your enamel and prevent sensitive teeth. Before you leave we will provide you with easy-to-use customised whitening trays so you can top up your whitening treatments at home.

This popular procedure gives you long lasting results, in a time efficient way.

Home Bleaching

Home bleaching is an alternative technique that gradually creates a brighter smile over the course of a few weeks. It uses a lower concentration of the chemical whitening agent which will give you longer lasting results with minimal risk of trauma to soft tissue.

On your initial visit to Monkstown Dental your dentist will create custom made soft trays that you fill with gel and place over your teeth every night for 2- 3 weeks. After that time we will review your progress and decide if you need further treatment.

Frequently Asked Questions


Will Tooth Whitening Damage My Teeth?

No. The tooth whitening procedures we use are incredibly safe and time-tested. As long as there are no underlying or previous issues and your teeth are healthy and free from decay, you should have no issues whatsoever. However, your dentist will need to assess you before any particular treatment is recommended.

Is the Process Painful?

Generally, no, but some people may experience different levels of sensitivity either during the treatment or after but most feel no pain at all.

Can You Whiten My Crowns/Veneer/Fillings?

Unfortunately, only natural tooth enamel will respond to our whitening systems. However, if you are unhappy with your current crowns or fillings, our specialist can talk to you about your various option.

How Long Will It Take To Get My Teeth Their Whitest?

Depending on which treatment is best for you, your teeth could be whiter and brighter in as little time as 40-60 minutes. However, for the most dramatic whitening it may take as long as two weeks. Your dentist will discuss your different options and together you can decide which treatment is best for you.

How Long Will the Effects Last?

Most cases (up to 76% of the time) your teeth will retain their new shade for up to 3 years. But no matter how long the treatment lasts, refreshing your smile is fast and easy. Your dentist can tell you more about using top-up gels.
