Teeth whitening treatment is a minimally invasive process that produces great results. Teeth whitening is a chemical process that “bleaches” the enamel of the tooth removing any discoloration from it. Our unique approach to teeth whitening at Hockerill Dental Hertfordshire not only creates very natural looking results but we have proven methods for safe, fast and effective results.
Teeth tend to discolour and darken with time. However, various foods, drinks and habits may exacerbate the yellowing of the teeth.
Teeth can become discoloured due to:
- Staining drinks such as tea, coffee, red wines.
- Smoking habits
- Food ingredients like turmeric and tomatoes
- The natural ageing process
There are essentially two types of teeth whitening processes:
Home Whitening – we can make custom-made trays for you that can be used at home with our special gels to whiten your teeth.
Professional chairside – this is where one of our Hertfordshire qualified clinicians will work on your teeth to whiten them to the desired effect.
There are various types of teeth whitening systems on the market that facilitate brightening the tooth colour in various ways. However, some teeth may not be suitable for this treatment.
It is very important to have a healthy tooth, gum and bone foundation prior to any treatment of this nature. Therefore, our Bishop’s Stortford dentists may advise some preliminary treatment before commencing with teeth whitening.
However, if we find that the teeth whitening system is not correct for you we will be able to offer you suitable alternatives. We can help you in choosing the most appropriate choice for you after an in-depth discussion of your particular needs and an evaluation of your teeth.

Your teeth vary in colour, just like hair and skin.
Even when they are healthy they can be yellower or darker than others.
Aging can also cause discolouration.
At our Hertfordshire practice, we use Carbemide Peroxide on the outside or inside of the tooth to lighten it.
It improves the appearance of your teeth without having to remove any of your natural tooth surface
