Why is Ultima much cheaper than my dentist
Essentially there are three reasons Ultima is cheaper than a local dentist.
- We do not have the larger overheads of a local dentist and therefore pass those savings on to our customers.
- We purchase large quantities of teeth whitening products and therefore can drive down the prices from the suppliers
- A dentist cannot afford to take away two hours from his everyday dental work and charge the type of prices that Ultima charge.
How many shades will my teeth whiten?
This ranges from one individual to another but we have never failed to whiten anyones teeth by less than four shades with many customers achieving ten to twelve shades.
How does it work?
By painting the teeth whitening gel on the teeth the laser oxidises the gel, opens the pours of the enamel which then releases the staining. This cycle is repeated until the staining is removed from the enamel.
How long does a treatment take from pre-consultation to post consultation?
From pre-consultation to post consultation the whole process takes around one hour and forty minutes.
