Teeth Whitening

There's no doubt about it; having a nice white smile can enhance both your confidence and appearance. At Hampshire Dentists, we provide a tray based teeth whitening system as we believe it lasts a lot longer than other laser based options and is much cheaper in the long run too. Rest assured it's also a pain free way to whiten your teeth!

Chair Based Power Whitening

Whiter teeth in less than an hour!

If you have an important event and need immediate results then this is a great option. Whether it’s a wedding, job interview or even a first date, we can help you make a great impression.

What’s Involved?

The simple procedure involves placing a protective layer around the gums, leaving the teeth isolated to apply the whitening gel which contains a strong peroxide which creates oxygen bubbles which breaks up stains and discoloration deep within the teeth. Most people find this process relaxing and we encourage listening to your favourite music or watching a DVD over the hour-long process.

Home Whitening

What’s Involved?


This is our preferred option and what most people go for. 

This procedure involves taking moulds of your teeth so we can custom make whitening trays to neatly fit around the contour of each tooth whilst carefully avoiding contact with your gums! They are made out of soft vinyl rubber and can be worn in the comfort of your own home made trays which fit your teeth exactly. The whitening gel which is a much weaker peroxide is applied to the trays and carefully placed over the teeth for a 2 hour period and repeated for up to 2 weeks. The end result is identical but the key advantage of the home whitening is that you will still have the trays to re-whiten the teeth in the future. We generally advocate this as the whitening process of choice due to its simplicity and weaker peroxide strength. Occasionally the stronger peroxides can make the teeth more sensitive temporarily, especially if you already have sensitive teeth beforehand.

Teeth Whitening in 5 Easy Steps:

  1. For optimum results, we generally recommend having a hygiene session before you start teeth whitening. This is to help ensure the surface is clean and the gel can properly work its magic.
  2. Once this is done, we’ll take impressions/moulds of both your top and bottom teeth. This takes approximately 20 minutes for you in the chair and a week for the impressions to be made by our lab.
  3. When your trays are ready, we’ll show you exactly what to do and give you a comprehensive (but straight forward) set of instructions. This will show you how much teeth whitening gel you need and talk you through how you can achieve the result you’re aiming for.
  4. For the next couple of weeks, you can then start whitening. Simply brush, floss, then pop in your trays. You’ll gradually see your teeth getting whiter and whiter. Rest assured, we’ll always be at the end of the phone if you have any questions.
  5. Finally, the dentist will conduct the last consultation to make sure that the treatment has been effective.

What It Costs

Power whitening £495, which includes the home whitening top up trays.

Home whitening £275 for both top and bottom teeth

The cost of teeth whitening is really in the making of the trays, so once you have the trays, the cost of maintaining your pearly whites in years to come could be as little as £10 a year, (the cost of any future gel you might want). Generally, we find once patients whiten their teeth, they only occasionally wish to top up (e.g. once a year, every couple of years).

I love my dentist now!
I am a very nervous patient and I haven’t had much luck with dentists in the past. so I was apprehensive joining this new surgery. However from my first conversations with the lovely receptionists to my most recent treatment, I have had great service. Every time I leave with a smile, I can honestly say that I am no longer scared of visiting the dentist.

Lily Downey
The entire team from the Dentists to the receptionists are exceptional within this practice. My 10 year old Daughter is currently undergoing some extreme orthodontic treatment and the team really do go the extra mile to make her feel at ease and comfortable during our monthly visits. Andrea our Orthodontist is a genius and we can’t believe the difference to our daughters teeth over such a short period of time. Our Daughter was so self-conscious about her smile and lost all confidence, she has now been transformed into a smiling social butterfly. Thank you so much !

I saw Dr Rob Hanna for my checkup this afternoon and was very impressed from the moment I arrived.
Very professional and thorough throughout my appointment. Everything was explained and I was made to feel at ease from start to finish.
As soon as I finished my dental checkup I was seen by Charlotte my hygienist. Once again my appointment was professional and thorough and I came away very impressed with my treatment and the way I was looked after.
Would recommend Hampshire Dentists to anybody that was looking for a dentist.

Kirsty Bulpitt
Thanks to Cadge and Marius I walked into the surgery with no fear or worry this morning. I am usually terrified of visiting the dentist but here I know I will be treated properly and pain free. On my last visit they made me feel so welcome and reassured. Today Cadge was is high spirits and dressed as an Elf which added to the atmosphere. I left feeling relaxed and happy.

Dr. Robin and the team do an excellent work. No pain, quick and effective. Not cheap though but when I was in pain, they gave me an appointment for the very next day and the job was done.
