Appointments

Please read the following carefully before attending your laser teeth whitening appointment.

You will be unable to eat for 90 minutes following the treatment so you may want to eat before you come. You will be able to drink water in the 90 minutes following treatment.
You will be advised not to eating any staining foods/drinks for three days following your treatment including things like red wine, soy sauce and curry. You will be given an aftercare card to take with you with a list of foods and drinks to avoid. You will have a pre-whitening consultation where your medical history will be assessed and an oral check by the Dentist that will assess your dental health. Some people will not be suitable for the whitening treatment. If this is the case with you, the £35 deposit payment you have made will be refunded from the Smile Tech Head Office via cheque within 10 working days.
If you have extensive plaque build-up on your teeth you may not be able to have the treatment until we have undertaken a scale and polish - this will incur an additional costs. We recommend a scale and polish for clients with extensive plaque build-up along the front of their upper and lower teeth and can offer this at smile tech.
Smile Tech perform laser teeth whitening on clients under the age of 18 if the teeth are ‘diseased’ this can be acsertained by the on site Dentist and will usually be the cause of the discolouration – if you are under 18, with healthy teeth, please contact Head Office or look at the on-line shop to find out about our fantastic range of home whitening solutions.
Women who are pregnant or breast feeding will not be able to undertake the laser teeth whitening treatments.
If you are allergic to nuts please let us know in advance of the treatment.
Clients that have a history of cancer, epilepsy or severe asthma will be advised to have the whitening treatment performed without using a light source.
IMPORTANT – If you are using a Smile Tech Gift Voucher – you must present this gift voucher to your technician on arrival as proof of purchase. Unfortunately, we are unable to treat people who do not present their gift voucher on arrival and you will need to either pay the full amount for the treatment on the day or a £20 rebooking fee if you wish to re-schedule your appointment. These instructions are written on the gift voucher for the avoidance of doubt.
Cancellation Policy: You can cancel and re-book your appointment with at least 24 hours notice free of charge. Please note that appointments that are re-scheduled with less than 24 hours notice will be charged a £20 re-booking fee. To re-schedule your appointment you can contact us on 01322 68 64 62. Failing to pay the re-booking fee will result in the loss of your £35 deposit.
No Show – Deposits for teeth whitening are non-refundable unless the Dentist deems you unfit for treatment. If you do not turn up to your appointment and do not call to re-book or cancel, Smile Tech will not take responsibility for tracking any deposit payments that have been made and will require a Smile Tech receipt or bank statement (for phone bookings) as proof of deposit payment.
Note: If you are late for your appointment by more than 15 minutes we may not be able to treat you and may have to re-schedule the appointment.
