What is teeth whitening?

The colour of your teeth can be affected by many factors including the ageing process, staining from food and drink, trauma, illness, disease and medication.

Professional teeth whitening from a dentist is the only safe, legal, and effective method of achieving a whiter, brighter smile.

Here at Spire Dental we use Boutique Whitening, which is a premium quality, professional teeth whitening system that delivers superior results, and we love it!

How sexy is your smile?

It says more about you than the car you drive, the clothes you wear, or the hairstyle you choose. Unlike your favourite suit or dress, you wear your smile every day, and it never goes out of fashion.
So, what does your smile say about you?
Designed by dentists, the multi-award-winning Boutique Whitening offers teeth whitening solutions to suit your lifestyle.

How Does Teeth Whitening Work?

Experience the simplicity and effectiveness of teeth whitening with Boutique under the guidance of Dr. Nola McNestry.

Initial Assessment

Dr. Nola McNestry conducts a comprehensive dental examination to evaluate your oral health. Once cleared, she discusses your teeth whitening options.

Customised Treatment

With Boutique, you have the flexibility to whiten your teeth during the day or overnight, tailored to your lifestyle preferences.

Preparation and Fabrication

Photographs are taken to determine your teeth’s current shade. Then, an impression or digital scan is taken and sent to the Boutique Whitening laboratory to craft your custom-fit whitening trays.

Tray Fitting

Your trays are fitted at the practice by Dr. Nola McNestry, who provides instructions on using the whitening syringes and advises on wear time. Typically, noticeable improvements can be seen within days, with optimal results achieved in about three weeks.

Day or night whitening?

Day Whitening

Boutique Whitening offers different formulas to suit your lifestyle, allowing you to whiten your teeth during the day or overnight while you sleep. The Day kit features 6% hydrogen peroxide and is designed for a convenient 2-hour wear per day.

Night Whitening

For overnight whitening, the Night kits are available with either 10% or 16% carbamide peroxide, offering a gentle yet effective solution for a 6-hour wear while you sleep. While both kits yield the same result, Dr Nola McNestry will provide insight into the different bleach types and recommend the ideal formula based on factors such as your lifestyle, preferences, and dental history.

Why is home whitening the best option?

In-chair whitening with a lamp (sometimes referred to as laser-whitening) is seen as the gold standard of teeth whitening by many patients. However, there is questionable evidence to prove the effectiveness of these lamps.

On the other hand, there is an overwhelming body of evidence to show that dentist- supervised home whitening is the most effective way to whiten teeth.

Here at Spire Dental we have helped many people achieve beautiful, whiter smiles using Boutique Whitening.

Boutique Whitening is a system that we trust, that we use ourselves, and that we find gives consistently amazing results. It’s definitely our favourite whitening brand!
