Teeth Whitening Sutton: How to get your teeth gleaming!

At Benhill Dental Practice, we can help you to lighten and brighten teeth that may be stained from smoking, drinking caffeine or red wine, certain medications or poor oral hygiene. Whatever the cause of your stained teeth, the fact is that you may want to improve the appearance of them. We use a system called Boutique whitening and you can use this in the comfort of your own home, day or night, depending on what works best for you.

What is Boutique whitening?

For Teeth Whitening Sutton, we use a premium product that we know will get fantastic results for you. Boutique whitening is 60 times stronger than non-professional products. It uses whitening gels that you can have in different intensities depending on the results you want, so we can choose a gel that suits your needs and your aims for the finished product! The gels are added to custom made trays that are then worn for a few hours during the day, or overnight.

What are the benefits of choosing Boutique?

If you’re looking for a smile that shines, but don’t want to spend hours in our dental practice, then this is the treatment for you. For a couple of weeks of whitening at home in the day or night, you can get fabulous results. You will need to do top up treatments every now and then to maintain your results, but you can do this again at home in your own time. If you miss a whitening session, there’s no need to worry – you can just pick it up again the next day! Once you have your lighter and brighter smile, you should feel super confident about smiling your beautiful smile.

Can I combine this treatment with anything else?

Teeth whitening can be a treatment that you have as part of a package of treatment to get you a smile that is functional and beautiful. If you have misaligned teeth, for example, we can offer a treatment such as Invisalign, which is used for mild to moderate alignment issues such as crossbite, over or underbites, crowded or gapped teeth. Invisalign is a discreet treatment that doesn’t use fixed braces, but removable aligners that are made bespoke to fit your mouth. These aligners are similar to your Boutique trays in that they should be comfortable to wear being made to fit your mouth precisely. Coming in for an initial consultation with us will help us to determine what your aims are for your smile and for us to examine your mouth to then offer you a range of treatments that can help you to achieve that.

Come and see us

By coming for an initial consultation, we hope that you will feel a part of the decision-making process of whatever treatments you decide to go ahead with. If you are unsure of anything, our friendly, professional and experienced team will be happy to answer any questions you may have. We understand that it can be overwhelming sometimes and we will be able to reassure you that we can help, whatever treatment you decide to go for. With teeth whitening, your teeth could be gleaming in a really short period of time, so what are you waiting for? Let’s do this!

What are the benefits of white teeth?

Everyone longs for a beautiful smile but what exactly makes a smile beautiful? Basically, a great looking smile requires three fundamental traits: aligned healthy teeth, healthy gums and white teeth Sutton.


At Benhill Dental Practice we love to help our patients to achieve beautiful smiles which is why we offer top quality dental treatments, including professional teeth whitening, to keep smiles looking happy and healthy.

We would like patients to know that white teeth Sutton is so much more than a superficial aesthetic concern. Having white teeth Sutton is beneficial for numerous reasons, some of which may not be apparent at first. We take a look at some of these reasons why we believe it is a good idea to consider teeth whitening procedures as well as the arguments for professional teeth whitening at the dentist.

Positive effects of teeth whitening

Improve aesthetics

Teeth that are discoloured tend to look aged, unattractive and unhealthy. Whether due to staining, smoking or the natural effects of time, teeth whitening treatments can reverse the effects of discolouration.

Look good for special occasions

Fortunately, teeth whitening treatments produce desired results in a relatively quick time, more so, when opting for in-chair procedures. This means that patients who need to look good for a special event or who will be looking for a new job can improve the look of their smile without worrying about lengthy treatment plans.

Improve dental health

This is one of those not-so-obvious benefits that take patients by surprise. There are two ways in which whiter teeth have a positive effect on oral health. The first is that in many cases, yellow teeth are caused by an underlying poor dental health condition.

Visiting a dentist for teeth whitening gives us the chance to determine the cause of discolouration, and if this is due to a dental problem, we can treat the cause and then proceed to whiten teeth. Or, when consulting for teeth whitening, we are obliged to conduct a dental health check before attempting to correct cosmetic issues. Either way, this is to a patient’s benefit as their dental health wins.

Secondly, we have found that once patients have whitened their teeth and love the look of their dazzling new smile, they are motivated to protect this look. They will invariably refrain from those bad lifestyle habits like smoking that are so detrimental to bright smiles. And if they have not paid attention to their oral hygiene regimens before, they do even more so carefully after investing in teeth whitening.

For best aesthetic results when considering a cosmetic procedure, it is always wise to rely on the services of true professionals. And as there are no professionals as better qualified, trained or experienced as dentists when it comes to the mouth, dental practitioners make the ultimate safest choice for teeth whitening treatments.

For a highly experienced dental team with a gentle and caring approach to dental care, make sure to choose Benhill Dental Practice. At our practice, we welcome both private and NHS patients looking for a one-stop dental clinic for quality general and cosmetic dentistry. Reach out to our friendly front desk team to schedule an appointment.

Boost your confidence with teeth whitening Sutton

If you are looking for quality results that are both consistent and safe, why not choose a product that dentists themselves use to whiten their teeth? That’s what you’ll get here with us, so let our experts talk you through the process of teeth whitening Sutton so that you can feel empowered knowing what to expect with this, frankly empowering experience.


Teeth whitening Sutton is an opportunity for you to feel more comfortable with your own smile, allowing the removal of several years of stains over the course of a few weeks in a safe and relaxed way. We can perform this treatment using different formulas to suit your lifestyle needs, you can opt for the treatment to be completed in a way that is most convenient for you so that you can enjoy the best possible results.

Both options, either the day or night wear options, guarantee your safety and we will provide you with all of the equipment and information that you need to competently complete the whitening treatment at home.

The overnight kit consists of either 10% or 16% carbamide peroxide which is designed to be worn for 6 hours consistently. You get the same outstanding results with your day kit, consisting of 6% hydrogen peroxide and can be worn for up to 2 hours daily.

One of our team will be assigned to your teeth whitening Sutton experience and care. They will determine what kind of whitening your smile needs and discuss with you pros and cons for each solution for your personal situation. This encompasses both your physical needs as well as your expectations and daily demands so that we can together establish an experience that works the best for you.

You can expect to see results after a few days using this treatment with optimal results seen at around the three-week mark. There are a few things that you can do to extend the life of your treatment and ensure that your smile is looking its greatest for the longest possible time.

How can I extend the life of my treatment?

By understanding what has caused the staining to your teeth in the first place, we can understand what is likely to continue to stain your teeth again in the future. Many of us consume red wine, tea or coffee on a regular basis and these products, alongside others are the main culprits for standard tooth discolouration. If you’re unsure what might stain your teeth, simply consider a white shirt and if the food or drink would stain the shirt, over time it will stain your teeth.

Consume less of these products and rinse your mouth with water after every meal, if not giving your teeth a light brush to remove any residue left over.

It is important to maintain good oral health and to keep your smile clean. Regular hygienist appointments will remove any surface stains that have accumulated over the past few months, so by visiting a professional often, you can maintain that whiter, healthier looking and feeling smile for longer.

If you’re feeling self-conscious about the appearance of your teeth because they are discoloured, you may be wondering what you can do about it. Drinking tea, coffee or alcohol, smoking, and even taking certain medication can affect the colour of your teeth. Other factors such as ageing, stress, illness and disease can also take its toll on your teeth. Reducing the amount of these drinks you consume and quitting smoking can certainly help to improve the appearance of your teeth, along with regular brushing, flossing and dental check-ups. However, if all of these things still don’t make you feel like you have the pearly whites you’re after, then there is another way to get white teeth Sutton. At Benhill Dental Practice, we offer Boutique Whitening to help improve the appearance of your teeth and give you a whiter and brighter smile.


What is Boutique Whitening?

Getting your teeth whitened professionally with a dentist is the only safe and approved way to achieve an improved appearance for the colour of your teeth effectively. Boutique Whitening is our choice of treatment for patients looking for white teeth Sutton because it offers flexibility of when you choose to use it, wearing a more concentrated solution for a couple of hours in the day time, or a less concentrated solution for a longer period at night time. It is a premium quality brand that delivers – we even use it ourselves!

How does Boutique Whitening work?

After an examination of your mouth to check that you are eligible for whitening treatment, your dentist will discuss which treatment would work best for you and your lifestyle – night or day. You will then have photographs taken of the colour of your teeth, as well as some scans or impressions which will be sent off to the laboratory at Boutique Whitening. There, they will make your bespoke and custom-fitted whitening trays.

Once the trays return to us, one of our dentists will fit them to your mouth and show you how to use the whitening syringe. You will also be told how long to wear the trays with the solution in for and you should start to see noticeable results in just a few days. It’s really easy to do and you will be smiling brightly when you know you’re making great progress on the aesthetic appearance of your teeth.

What does the solution contain?

The formulas vary depending on whether you have the night or day kit. For the day kit, it contains 6% hydrogen peroxide; the night kit contains either 10% or 16% carbamide peroxide. The end results should be the same, but we can advise you on which formula will work best for you based on your dental history, your lifestyle and your preferences. 

If getting a glowing smile is currently on your wishlist, why not make your wish come true? Visiting us at Benhill Dental Practice for white teeth Sutton will ensure that you get the treatment you need to achieve effective and noticeable results in a safe and reliable way. We have substantial experience in supporting our patients in this area of dentistry and we understand the desire to have a smile that looks like it’s from the pages of a magazine. We also don’t see why anyone shouldn’t have a little bit of magic in their lives and make their dreams a reality. Stop feeling self-conscious and seize the day.

People do tend to associate a healthy mouth and body with having brilliant and white teeth, so what better way to bring about a positive change to a smile than by having teeth whitening in Sutton?


Dull, stained, yellowing teeth can have a significant impact on your confidence and could be the reason why you don’t smile as much as you should. If you feel that you are constantly conscious about the appearance of your smile and dislike any staining or discolouration that you may have, then come and speak with us about it today.

We routinely suggest to our patients that a combination of teeth whitening in Sutton, frequent dental check-ups and hygiene visits will give you the best chance at having beautiful, strong and healthy teeth.

There are two kinds of teeth whitening in Sutton that is available for you to choose from. The first can be done in the dental chair in a matter of minutes. The other option allows you to take a whitening kit home with you so that you can whiten your teeth in the comfort of your own home, usually overnight.

There are advantages to both treatment options and is completely up to you what option you feel will be most suitable for your current lifestyle. We can discuss both options in depth so that you are able to make an informed decision.

Our treatment service offered in the practice

Within an hour, you can expect to find your teeth several shades whiter, without having to do anything but simply sit back and relax. Results are variable depending on the kind of staining that you have. This is great for a confidence boost that is ideal for an important night out where you want to look your best.

This in-practice treatment plan starts with an assessment of your staining so that we can give you a good guideline as to what you should expect. We then protect the gums and lips with a barrier and create a mould of your teeth to where we add a gel. This gel is much stronger than your alternative at-home treatment option but is used for a very short amount of time.

We then place a UV lamp directly on to your teeth which activates the bleaching process.

The at home whitening option

We will provide you with the same custom-made mouth tray that fits perfectly and snugly over your teeth. This enables you to keep the gel on your teeth where it belongs as it can hurt gums and lips and be unpleasant to taste. You should place the gel inside the tray and wear it overnight or otherwise for several hours at your convenience.

Versatile teeth whitening treatments

As you go about your daily business, it’s worth looking at other people’s smiles and getting an idea of what are the accepted norms for smiles these days. You will notice that amongst people under the age of about 40, it’s very important to have straight, well proportioned, white teeth. People are spending more on their smiles than ever before, and the most popular treatment of all is teeth whitening.

Teeth Whitening in SuttonHere at Benhill Dental Practice in Sutton, we see more and more people coming in for teeth whitening treatment. It’s a great way of giving your smile a lift without having to go through lengthy and costly treatments. So, if you know you need to have a great smile for an upcoming event, you may well choose to get your teeth whitened, and there are 2 ways in which you can do this with us at Benhill Dental Practice.

How does teeth whitening work?

The treatment aims to gently lift out traces of pigments from various foods and drinks, such as coffee, red wine and dark chocolate. These get trapped in the pore of your tooth enamel and brushing can’t dislodge them, neither can a good clean with the hygienist.

Teeth whitening gel contains hydrogen peroxide, a tried and trusted whitener and disinfectant that has been around for a couple of hundred years. It comes in different strengths, depending on what it’s being used for.

We also use it in different strengths at the dental practice.

Power whitening

We use a stronger concentration of hydrogen peroxide for whitening treatments that we can oversee in the clinic. Power whitening gel is painted onto your teeth and takes about an hour to whiten your teeth by several shades.

At-home whitening

Using bespoke gel trays and a weaker gel, you whiten your teeth at home over a couple of weeks. You put the gel in the bespoke trays and wear them every day for a short period.

Both methods have their advantages. One is quick and can be done in your lunch hour. The second gives you trays that you can use every time you need to top up your treatment.

White teeth can be yours

Have you noticed how nearly everyone has wonderful white teeth in Sutton these days? How can that be? Are they just lucky or have they been coming to us at Benhill Dental Practice for a bit of help? We think it’s probably the latter.

There are 3 ways you can get white teeth. You can have teeth whitening, veneers or composite bonding, or you can have white fillings.

White Teeth in SuttonTeeth whitening

Modern foods and drinks can stain teeth. If you are a big coffee, tea, red wine or berry fan, or if you smoke, then each of these things will be leave tiny traces of their pigments on your teeth and those traces sink down into the pores of the tooth enamel and become impossible to get out with normal brushing and even with a scale and polish from the hygienist. But teeth whitening treatments can remove these surface stains.

We offer 2 methods of teeth whitening here. You can have power whitening, which takes an hour or so in the dentist’s chair to get teeth several shades lighter. You can also have a take-home kit, with bespoke gel trays. This is a gentler method and takes a couple of weeks to get whiter teeth.

Veneers and composite bonding

Sometimes we can’t whiten your teeth because the stains are not intrinsic to the tooth. Instead we can cover them over with porcelain veneers or composite bonding.

White fillings

Amalgam fillings show up dark glinty grey when you laugh and talk. They are a dead giveaway of previous dental decay and don’t look great. We can replace them, either all at once, or when the old amalgam wears out, using composite, a mixture of plastic and glass that is coloured to match your teeth. Composite fillings blend in with your teeth, and have other benefits too. They require the removal of less healthy tooth material and form a proper seal with the tooth. Composite fillings can be sculpted to give you a proper chewing surface.

Why not come in and find out more about how we can help you get the white teeth that everyone else seems to have.

Enhance your smile with professional teeth whitening in Sutton

Did you know that our teeth naturally darken as we age? Furthermore, certain foods, beverages and habits can contribute to a stained smile. Luckily, it is possible to erase years of discolouration in a single visit to the dentist. Professional teeth whitening in Sutton offers a quick, effective and inexpensive way to brighten your teeth by several shades.

Teeth Whitening in SuttonAt Benhill Dental Practice, we deliver two types of teeth whitening – power whitening and home whitening. Both methods are safe and effective. Our experienced dentists will examine your teeth thoroughly and help you decide which treatment suits your individual needs. Some patients, such as those who are pregnant or sensitive to whitening agents, may not be candidates for professional whitening in Sutton.

What causes tooth discolouration?

Our teeth start out white and shiny, but can become discoloured as we age. However, some people are genetically predisposed to yellow teeth. Common causes of tooth discolouration include caffeine, carbonated drinks and tobacco products. Soy sauce and other highly-pigmented, dark-coloured dressings can also cause tooth discolouration. Last but not least, some medications are also responsible for yellow and stained teeth.

How can your dentist brighten your smile?

Professional teeth whitening consists of a thorough cleaning and polishing of the teeth with a special bleaching agent. If you decide to have your teeth whitened at our dental practice, your dentist will protect your gums before applying a whitening agent to the surface of your teeth. The product will be activated with a power light and left on the teeth for several minutes before being washed off with water. Your results will vary according to the natural shade of your teeth and degree of discolouration.

Home teeth whitening, on the other hand, involves wearing a set of customised, plastic trays along with bleaching gels for a few hours every day. One of the most convenient things about teeth whitening trays is that you can whiten your teeth over time, until you reach the ideal colour. More importantly, the application process can fit into your daily schedule and does not require frequent dental appointments.

Why teeth whitening is so popular

There’s nothing quite like beautiful white teeth for giving your smile and your spirits a lift. It’s no wonder really that teeth whitening is the world’s most popular cosmetic dentistry treatment. In Sutton, white teeth are incredibly popular too, among our patients at Benhill Dental Practice.

Why choose teeth whitening?

Teeth Whitening in SuttonWe have wondered about what makes this particular treatment the one that most patients gravitate towards when they are dissatisfied with their smiles. We have reached the conclusion that it is because it is so quick and easy, and that it doesn’t require the teeth to be altered in any way. Even mildly wonky teeth can look so much better if they are a healthy white colour, so people often choose this treatment when they are testing the waters of cosmetic dentistry. They may go on to have other, more permanent or invasive, treatments afterwards.

Teeth whitening also makes for a great top-off treatment for people who are having a lot of remedial work done, or have another cosmetic treatment such as getting their teeth straightened with braces. If they have been wearing fixed braces for several months and it is time for the great unveiling when the braces finally come off, patients often choose this time to have their beautiful and newly straightened teeth whitened. It really gives their smile a dramatic lift after all that hard work wearing braces for so long, and they leave our dental practice with huge beams of their faces.

And that’s what it’s all about really – being able to smile broadly. It feels wonderful and does wonderful things to the body, releasing large amounts of serotonin to lift the spirits.

Your options

At Benhill Dental Practice, we offer 2 ways to whiten teeth. You can come into the practice for power whitening. This takes about an hour and you just lie back and relax, while a more concentrated whitening gel on your teeth does its work. Or you can whiten your teeth at home with a less concentrated gel, wearing custom-made mouth trays for several hours, or overnight, each day. This takes about 2 weeks to get results.

Pearly whites to make your smile brighter

Are your teeth stained or discoloured? Do your teeth leave you feeling self-conscious about your smile? If the answer is yes, then there’s no need to fret. Benhill Dental Practice in Sutton provides professional teeth whitening to restore the natural shine to your teeth. Whether you have an important event coming up or just want to be able to smile with confidence again, teeth whitening provides a quick and reliable solution.

teeth-whitening-in-suttonHow does teeth whitening work?

Teeth whitening uses a clinically safe amount of bleaching agent to remove stains and lessen discolouration. The bleaching agent comes in the form of a whitening gel that is applied to your teeth. When carried out by a highly trained dental professional, such as at Benhill Dental Practice, teeth whitening is a safe and effective treatment.

Your options

At our modern practice, we offer two types of teeth whitening, depending on your personal needs.

Power whitening is carried out in the dental chair. Your lips and gums are protected with a barrier. A whitening gel is then applied to your teeth and activated using a UV light. After just an hour of treatment, your teeth will appear several shades brighter.

Home whitening involves the use of custom-made mouth trays, crafted to fit your teeth. A whitening gel is applied to these trays, which you then wear for a few hours in the day or night, from the comfort of your own home. Using our custom-made trays means you won’t need to worry about the whitening gel leaking out onto your gums or lips. Results can be achieved in just over two weeks.

In both cases, the extent of the whitening effect will depend on the initial colour of your teeth. Whichever teeth whitening option you choose to take, with our guidance and care you can look forward to a natural-looking finish. While this treatment is a temporary fix, you can prolong its effects.

Minimising foods and drinks that stain strongly and cutting back on smoking will make your treatment last longer. With advice from our experienced dentists, you can make the most of your teeth whitening in Sutton. So get in touch today to enjoy brighter smiles.
