To Patients and Friends of Chris Bird Dental Practice,


As a Dental Practice, we work in an environment where the prevention of the spread of a whole range of infections is woven into everything we do. In addition to our usual scrupulous cross infection control measures, we have been paying particularly close attention to all government guidance and updates related more specifically to Coronavirus. {COVID-19 Safety Measures}

Given the unprecedented situation in the UK regarding the rapidly spreading COVID-19 virus, and following the latest advice from the UK Government on ceasing all but essential travel, we are stopping all routine dental treatment with immediate effect.
If you have an appointment in the coming weeks, a member of our reception team will be in contact with you very soon to postpone it.

Looking after the health of our patients is our absolute priority and so we will be operating an Emergency Telephone Consultation service for our patients who have urgent pain or swelling during this period of closure. If you urgently need assistance, please call us on 01543 573377.

As a team, we are doing everything we possibly can to remain fit, well and able to work so that we can continue our usual high standard of dental care for you when we return.

Thank you for your support, and stay safe,
The Team at Chris Bird Dental Care


How is teeth whitening carried out?

Thanks to progress in modern dentistry, teeth can now be whitened using gentle bleaching gels. Your dentist will take impressions of your teeth so that custom-made trays can be made. You then fill these trays with bleaching gel and wear them overnight or for a few hours during the day. After a few days you will observe a noticeable brightening effect. Best results are achieved when the trays are worn over approximately 14 nights.

How does teeth whitening work?

Whitening gel does not attack the tooth substance. The ingredient, carbamide peroxide, gently brightens the teeth by releasing oxygen into the tooth tissue.

Is teeth whitening always successful?

The bleaching process is most successful on slightly discoloured teeth. Strongly discoloured teeth may take a longer treatment. Fillings and restorations including crowns and bridges are not bleached.

Will whitened teeth remain white?

The whitening effect is generally stable for several years. Should teeth slightly darken again because of food, beverages or nicotine, the treatment can be repeated every 6 to 12 months.

Tooth whitening system

  • Safe - Tooth whitening systems have been proven safe in many clinical studies over the past ten years.
  • Effective - The proof is in the results. It has proven to be effective in eliminating tooth stains caused by coffee, red wine, tobacco and other foodstuffs. Even teeth that have yellowed with age can be effectively treated with this system.
  • Convenient - The system is designed to fit each individual’s needs and lifestyle. Ask your dentist to recommend the programme that is right for you. Prices are subject to the usual discount for the Dental Care Plan members.
