Teeth whitening

For that finishing touch

For an additional fee we offer safe, effective teeth whitening to lighten teeth that may have lost a little sparkle during the teeth straightening process.

This is available to patients who are over 18 and have just completed orthodontic treatment at the practice. We provide custom-made mouth trays and a whitening gel, which you use in the comfort of your own home.

Whitening benefits
  • Noticeably lighter results
  • Overseen by dental professionals
  • Convenient
Whitening procedure
  • First, we thoroughly examine your teeth to make sure they will be suitable for whitening.
  • We take impressions so tailor-made trays can be produced to fit (although it may be possible to simply use your removable retainers).
  • When ready, you will take your upper and lower trays home to wear with the active gel for a specified length of time each day.
  • After wearing the trays for a few weeks, you come back to see us so we can check your teeth have reached your preferred shade.
Whitening extra bits

Although you undertake whitening at home, we oversee the process and show you how to use the trays for maximum safety and effectiveness.

Teeth whitening will only work on natural teeth and not on restorations such as crowns, veneers and dentures.

Keep your smile whiter

You can help keep a brighter smile for longer by avoiding any food and drink that may cause staining and be staying on top of your oral hygiene.

Although the results of teeth whitening are not permanent, you can reuse your trays and buy more gel for a handy top-up.

  • “I skipped on having braces as a child and took the plunge when I was 28 as this was holding me back with my confidence. At first, I wondered what people would think of a grown man with braces, but I am pleased to say this had no impact at all and I never really noticed that I had them. I thoroughly recommend Colchester Orthodontic Centre to my friends, family and anybody else thinking about having treatment.”
    Warren - Patient

  • “After over 2 years of impeccable TLC from Colchester Orthodontic Centre my daughter is now able to show off the smile she has always deserved! Mr Davies was able to advise us with his wealth of experience as to what was needed, and the result is proof that they clearly know how to look after their client’s needs and ensure the best result at the end of the journey!”

  • My Invisalign experience with Colchester Orthodontic Centre was fab. I was supported the whole way through and given many options and I am now really happy with my teeth. The Invisalign aligners are very comfortable and discreet. I would definitely recommend Invisalign treatment at Colchester Orthodontic Centre.”

  • “You can make the most of your teeth at any age. Sometimes mature years can make you feel awkward attending the orthodontist, although I have been encouraged and treated with care and attention at every appointment. I try to maintain my teeth as best I can and I have received the very best care you could wish for. I started out feeling reluctant to smile. I am now very happy to smile at any occasion and feel grateful to the wonderful team at Colchester Orthodontic Centre, the whole team treat you with professional care and kindness.”
    Anne - Patient
