Teeth darken over time as the foods and drinks we consume deposit tiny molecules onto the enamel, where they settle. Though it may not be easy to keep teeth from becoming discoloured, teeth whitening offers a simple solution.
Our patients visit Portmore for convenient, fast teeth whitening in Surrey and we also offer a home whitening kit that you can apply over a few weeks.
Teeth whitening is simple, safe, predictable and great value for money.BOOK AN APPOINTMENT
ZOOM! LASER TOOTH WHITENING
Zoom! is ideal if your time is limited, or you have an important event looming for which you need to look your best. It’s been one of the most popular in-practice whitening procedures for many years and consistently delivers reliable results.
We’ll use a protective sheet to cover your lips and gums and a member of our dental team, based at our dentists in Weybridge, will apply the whitening gel to your teeth and activate it with a UV light. Once activated, the gel solution breaks up stain molecules deep in the enamel.
Benefits of Zoom! whitening
- Instant results — we can whiten your teeth up to 12 shades lighter in an hour
- Trusted brand with consistent results
- Suitable for busy people who want instant results at short notice
- Our dental therapists can carry out the procedure at the same time as your professional clean
Home whitening kits were the first kind used in dentistry, and they are safe and reliable. Your dentist in Weybridge, Surrey will take impressions and craft a custom-fitted tray, and you will receive a supply of whitening solution to apply to your teeth daily via your trays.
Your teeth will start to whiten in a few days, with the final results visible in about 10 to 14 days. Some patients may suffer from some sensitivity during the procedure but this wears off once treatment is completed and it causes no long term damage.
Benefits of home whitening
- You can manage the desired result, choosing a shade that suits you
- Simply stop when you feel your teeth are white enough
- Whiten your teeth in comfort at a time that’s convenient to you
- You can top up the treatment every few months or for a special occasion. Once we have made the whitening trays you can purchase additional gel when you need it. Many patients do a two-day top up just before a holiday or a special night out

TEETH WHITENING FAQ’s
Although you can get some dentist-approved at home whitening kits, it’s always more advisable to get your teeth whitening in Weybridge done by a professional dentist.
It’s important to note that not all at home whitening kits are safe, and so to avoid any harm or unpleasant side effects, we recommend visiting our warm and welcoming clinic. We offer some of the most effective teeth whitening solutions, including our highly popular Zoom! Laser tooth whitening, which can be done super quickly for a consistently whiter look each time. You could even achieve a smile that’s up to 12 shades lighter in just a one hour treatment.
Here at Portmore Dental, we use only the best tooth whitening techniques to ensure success every time. Our approach is a simple one, but gets safe, consistent and predictable results each time, helping you to brighten your smile even if it has become yellow over the course of several months or years.
Our Zoom! Laser tooth whitening is also an ideal solution if you’re looking for fast results, as this technique can see your smile brighten by several shades in just one hour.
That really depends on where you’re getting your equipment from. As teeth whitening has become more popular, it has become easier than ever to get your hands on budget whitening kits, but these can often contain harmful chemicals that could even lead to burns in the mouth and damage to the natural enamel of the tooth.
We understand that not everyone has the time to come and see our specialists in the clinic, which is why we offer a safe and reliable at home whitening option for those who prefer to use daily treatments from the comfort of their own home.

Opting for a professional tooth whitening done by a specialist is always going to yield results that look good but are most importantly, safe. That being said, it will usually be more expensive to get your teeth whitened in the clinic, so if you do decide you’d prefer to whiten your teeth yourself at home, you can speak to our team who will discuss our popular at home whitening kits.
Teeth whitening in Surrey is a straightforward process, no matter if you decide to whiten your teeth at home or undergo treatments here at our dental practice.
However, the process will look slightly different depending on the route you decide to go down.
If you choose home whitening, our dentists will craft a custom-fitted tray and supply you with a whitening gel to apply to your teeth daily via the trays.
Your teeth will whiten in a few days, and the final results will be visible within 14 days.
If you opt for an in-practice procedure, we’ll use a protective sheet to cover your lips and gums and apply the whitening gel to your teeth, activating it with a UV light.
Once activated, the gel solution breaks up stain molecules deep in the enamel and reduces the appearance of discolouration instantly.

In the grand scheme of things, teeth whitening is a pretty inclusive dental treatment.
Almost anybody can benefit from having their teeth whitened, but there are a few types of patients who we wouldn’t recommend our teeth whitening treatments to.
This includes people with fillings, implants and dental bridges, as this treatment can’t change the colour of such restorations.
We would also advise against teeth whitening treatments for patients with untreated decay or cavities, significant root exposure or periodontal disease (gum disease), as the process can be painful.
Before you undergo any whitening treatments, our skilled dentists will carry out a thorough examination of your teeth and gums – just to check that it’s the most suitable option for you and advise the most appropriate alternative, as well as to prep your teeth for whitening.

- Brush and floss regularly – keeping up with your regular brushing and flossing routine is a must if you want to maintain sparkling white teeth. Brushing twice and flossing once daily will help remove debris and prevent plaque build-up. It's also a good idea to brush your teeth after every meal (with regular toothpaste) to remove any pieces of food left behind in between your teeth.
- Avoid staining drinks – Tea. Coffee. A glass of red wine. These are beverages that have the potential to cause serious harm to the colour of your teeth, which isn’t ideal if you’ve just completed a whitening treatment. If you’re not prepared to give them up, drinking them through a straw should suffice, as the liquid won’t come into contact with your teeth.
- Use at-home touch-ups – using whitening toothpaste, gels or strips is a great way to further extend the life of your teeth whitening treatment in between appointments.
