Whitening results can vary depending on the severity and nature of your stains, everyone has teeth which are a different shade of natural whiteness, we can never whiten your teeth more than their natural colour, and some people have naturally whiter teeth than others.
Our treatment will be tailored to produce the best whitening results possible, with an appropriate whitening schedule to meet your individual needs. If we do not whiten your teeth, you will not be charged for the procedure.
This varies from person to person and depends on your diet and lifestyle, the whitening results typically last from 6 months to 2 years. We recommend 6 monthly touch-up treatments for patients who consume coffee or other staining foods and drinks frequently or who use tobacco products.
For most whitening cases, our Power Whitening treatment is 60 minutes long. Treatment times may vary depending on your individual whitening needs.
For the first 24 hours after the treatment, a “white diet” is recommended and you should avoid using tobacco products and consuming coffee, tea, cola, red wine and other dark-coloured foods and drinks. Avoiding using coloured mouthwashes or toothpastes is also recommended.
BEYOND® produces dramatic whitening results for any patient who wants to whiten his or her teeth. The treatment is most effective on patients with extrinsic stains caused by food, drinks, or tobacco products.

Yes, our award winning, Power Whitening treatment is 100% safe. The Whitening Accelerator uses and innovative LED technology and advanced light filtration system that removes all harmful heat exposure, ensuring your comfort and safety and reducing the risk of you experiencing sensitivity during or after the treatment. Scientific research has shown that the active ingredients in the BEYOND® Teeth Whitening Gel are very effective and extremely safe for cosmetic tooth whitening. In a recent clinical study our whitening gel was scientifically proven to be Safer than Orange Juice. The dental community has used these ingredients in performing teeth whitening for more than 130-years. Teeth Whitening gel was first used to whiten teeth in 1884 and although more than 130 years have passed, there has never been a recorded case of any hydrogen peroxide teeth whitening gel damaging the enamel of a healthy tooth.
New Cosmetic strength whitening gels use a 6% – 12% hydrogen peroxide whitening gel formula. This is the recommended limit for controlling sensitivity among clients. Any higher strength gel than this will undoubtedly result in more cases of sensitivity from the whitening treatment. If you usually experience teeth sensitivity we recommend using de-sensitizing toothpaste such as Sensodyne for 10 – 14 days before the treatment.
Scaling& polishing can produce some gum recession and/or detachment of gingival (gum) attachment fibres, which can expose the dentin at the tooth’s base. Also Normal healthy teeth can become transiently more sensitive than usual because it usually removes the shielding pellicle layer coating from the tooth enamel. Therefore, if you are having a Dentist Scale & Polish your teeth, we ask that you wait 10- 14-days for your gums to come back and the pellicle layer to re grow before your whitening procedure.
All Teeth Whitening is ‘Contraindicated’ for Pregnant & Breast feeding persons; That means, these factors serve as a reason to withhold a certain treatment during this time. Until scientific research says yes or no, certain products are ‘Contraindicated’ as an unproven safety risk.
Perfect for those that have heavy staining caused by diet/lifestyle – smoking, tea, coffee, red wine etc. Or for tetracycline staining caused by antibiotics.
