Teeth Whitening

Practice Closure Notice

Dear Valued Patient,

Due to current unprecedented circumstances, as per guidance from the Chief Dental Officer NHS England, it is with regret that we have taken the unfortunate decision to close the practice until further notice. We will be contacting all patients who currently have appointments booked with us. Please do not attend the practice, even for emergencies, as we cannot currently allow access to the building.

Our team members are being deployed to the hospitals on the frontline to help fight the battle against coronavirus and support the amazing NHS doctors and nurses.

We would also like to take this opportunity to remind patients to follow government guidance during this difficult time and wherever possible to STAY AT HOME.

If you have a dental emergency or need advice then please contact our telephone triage service by calling the practice on 01344 291744 or sending us an email at

Please only contact us in cases of a genuine emergency as we need to prioritise our limited resources to help those who need us.

Our team has worked with you and your family for many years and we look forward to seeing you again as soon as we can. We would like to send you our best wishes and hope that you stay safe and well during this extremely difficult time.

Sincerely,

Sunninghill Dental Practice

We have been whitening teeth here at Sunninghill for the last 20 years, and are  able to administer most of the current systems available.

Healthy teeth

The Polar Whitening System uses carbide peroxide up to 18% (this is equivalent to 6% hydrogen peroxide), or hydrogen peroxide up to 6%. At these concentrations whitening will be effective provided that it can be held against the surface of the teeth for long enough (typically a couple of hours). This means making a very accurately fitting whitening tray, so that no gel leaks out, and no saliva ingresses

The Law: The active tooth whitening chemical is hydrogen peroxide. This is usually applied to the teeth in the form of carbide peroxide which allows the slow release of active hydrogen peroxide, although under certain conditions may be applied as straight hydrogen peroxide.

All tooth whitening products, tooth pastes or devices for sale to the public are limited to a maximum of 0.1% peroxide, and are unlikely to have any significant whitening effect at this low level. There are controls regarding maximum hydrogen peroxide levels in products for sale to the public because it can be a toxic material if indiscriminately used in high concentrations. Whitening systems using above 0.1% may only be legally be applied by a dentist, or by a hygienist or dental therapist to a prescription provided by a dentist.
