Teeth whitening Nottingham

Teeth can discolour for various reasons such as trauma, dietary causes such as food and drink, tobacco use as well as natural ageing and thinning of enamel (the outer layer of the tooth).  Teeth whitening is one of the most commonly requested cosmetic dental treatments, providing phenomenal results and enhancing smiles. When performed by a registered dentist, teeth whitening is a completely safe procedure.  It is best practice to see a hygienist before you start your whitening treatment to help remove stains and maintain your smile.

At Holly Tree House Dental, we offer the Boutique system and the Enlighten system, both of which are multi-award winning brands.

The main benefits are:

  • Quick results
  • Neutral gel to protect gums and teeth
  • Minimally invasive
  • Non-damaging to teeth
  • Boosts self-confidence

How the treatment works


Your dentist will examine your teeth and gums to ensure the teeth are ready, restore any cavities and take moulds/digital scan for your bespoke whitening trays.


Your mould/scan is sent to the laboratory where technicians will manufacture the trays to fit your mouth precisely to optimise your whitening result.


Collect your trays and gel from the dentist who will instruct you on how to use and get the most out of the system. Then it’s time to start!

Enlighten Whitening

Enlighten teeth whitening offers a unique approach compared to other brands, aiming to deliver brighter, longer-lasting results with a comfortable experience. Here’s what sets Enlighten apart in the market:

Guaranteed Results: Unlike some whitening treatments, Enlighten boasts a guarantee to lighten teeth by up to 16 shades or achieve a Vita Shade B1, the whitest natural shade attainable. This ensures a noticeable difference and caters to those seeking a Hollywood-white smile.

Diet Freedom: Forget restrictive diets often associated with whitening. Enlighten allows you to maintain your usual eating and drinking habits throughout the treatment. This flexibility makes it a convenient option for busy UK lifestyles.

Superior Comfort: Enlighten utilises custom-made whitening trays designed for a superior seal. This optimized fit minimizes gel leakage and potential gum irritation, leading to a more comfortable whitening experience.

Long-Lasting Results: Enlighten’s patented formula is designed to deliver long-lasting results. This means you can enjoy your brighter smile for an extended period compared to some other whitening options.

Internal Whitening – Single Dark Tooth

Why Has One Tooth Darkened?

Have you noticed a single tooth that appears darker than the others? This can be a cause for concern, and you might be wondering what caused it. Here at Holly Tree House Dental Practice, we understand your worry and are here to help.

Understanding Discoloured Teeth:

Several reasons can lead to a single discoloured tooth, including:

  • Dead or Damaged Nerve: If the nerve inside a tooth dies due to injury or infection, it can cause the tooth to darken over time.
  • Previous Dental Work: Root canals or fillings, while necessary procedures, can sometimes lead to discolouration in the treated tooth.
  • Trauma: A blow to the tooth can damage the pulp and lead to discolouration.


What We Can Do to Help:

At Holly Tree House Dental Practice, we prioritise your oral health and a confident smile. Our experienced dentists will:

  • Conduct a thorough examination: We’ll carefully examine your tooth to identify the cause of the discolouration.
  • Discuss treatment options: Based on the diagnosis, we’ll explain safe and effective solutions to restore your smile, like teeth whitening, dental veneers, or crowns.
  • Tailor a treatment plan: We believe in personalised care and will work with you to choose the best course of action for your specific situation.
