Teeth whitening is a quick and easy procedure that takes about an hour in the dental chair. The process begins when a bleaching gel is applied to the teeth, followed by an LED activation light that helps to accelerate the reaction.

Whitening after cleaning will take between 90 and 120 minutes.

Invisalign appointments typically take between 45 and 60 minutes each time. Our Invisalign specialists will evaluate your mouth to determine what changes need to be made and then craft your treatment plan. This includes taking digital scans of your teeth, creating a 3D model of the patient’s bite, creating a series of clear aligners tailored to your needs, and planning for future adjustments throughout the orthodontic process. During the appointment, you can expect to receive your first set of aligners and instructions on using them throughout the remainder of treatment.
Dental bonding typically takes as little as an hour to complete. During the procedure, a resin-like material is applied to repair chips and cracks in teeth or even change the shape and size of the tooth itself. Once applied, a specialised tool is used to shape it before hardening it with a UV light.
