REFERRALS FOR TOOTH WHITENING
We will usually be able to see your patient within a few days and if the patient is suitable we will be able to take the initial impressions at their consultation appointment. Please ensure that the patient is suitable for the procedure and that they are aware that existing crowns, bridges and restorations will not be whitened.

If you find it useful we have produced a referral form which you may use for referrals for tooth whitening. You can also send us a referral in your usual way. To download and print the referral form for tooth whitening please click the link below.

FEES FOR TOOTH WHITENING
Our fee for an initial whitening consultation is £49.50. Tooth whitening is £450.00. However, if your patient is suitable for tooth whitening at the consultation and goes ahead with the treatment, £49.50 will be deducted from the final fee of £450.00.



PATIENT INFORMATION
Your patient will probably want to know how much tooth whitening costs, how long it will take, if it will hurt and if it is safe. Please give your patient a guide to fees as above. The initial appointment will take 15 minutes and providing the patient is suitable for the treatment, impressions will be taken (on rare occasions an additional appointment will be required for a special tray).

Around a week later, the patient will attend the practice to have the trays fitted, to have pre-operative photographs, to have a shade taken and begin treatment. We will then see your patient for review at regular intervals where post-operative photographs and shade will be taken.

Please also reassure your patient that they may experience minimal sensitivity after the procedure for a couple of days. Studies have been carried out to show that tooth whitening by this method is very safe.

We have produced a patient information leaflet which may be downloaded and printed out by clicking the link below.
