We use Philips Zoom and wy10 teeth whitening at Wanstead Dental to make your smile as bright as possible.

You will need a teeth whitening treatment if your teeth have stains or discolourations, or if you want to improve overall whiteness of your teeth. The whitening treatment will effectively remove stains on the surface of your teeth, giving a healthy brightness and sparkle to your smile.

You may experience some degree to tooth sensitivity and this is quite normal. Your dentist will talk to you about the different options to minimise this minor problem.

The Zoom! whitening procedure is simple and painless. It begins with a short preparation to isolate your lips and gums.

6. How long does it take?

Zoom! whitening is the worlds number 1 light-activated whitening system, one of the reasons everyone wants Zoom is because of the speed of the procedure. With Zoom you can have that fantastic white smile you always wanted in around one hour.

7. Why Combination Teeth Whitening is Better at Wanstead Dental?

Combination Teeth Whitening Gives Better Whitening Results. Many dental practice provide chairside only, but at Wanstead Dental we have found that for the best possible whitening result, a combination whitening (Chairside and Home Whitening Kit) offers better longer term results. Also due to the recent UK regulations of the weaker concentration of chairside whitening gel, combination whitening is now the best option for our patients.

Also our Combination Whitening prices are comparable to just the chairside Whitening that other practices may offer. So you can expect a great price and value at Wanstead Dental.

Please see our Latest Offers on Combination Teeth Whitening with two options of brand choice (with Wy10 or Philips Zoom).
