  5. Purchases.
    Despite the foregoing, to the extent this Site provides electronic commerce, such buying opportunities may be made available for individuals, so long as you are authorised to and are of legal age (18 years at the time of purchase). Your order is an offer to SmileWhite to buy the product(s) in your order. When you place an order to purchase a product from SmileWhite, you agree to be bound by the General Terms and Conditions and Terms of Trade which can be located here. We will send you an e-mail confirming receipt of your order and containing the details of your order (the "Appointment Confirmation E-mail").   The Appointment Confirmation E-mail is acknowledgement that we have received your order, and does not confirm acceptance of your offer to buy the product(s) ordered. We only accept your offer, and conclude the contract of sale for a product ordered by you, when you are booked in for your initial appointment with the SmileWhite partner dentist. We will then send you confirmation of your booking with your appointment date and time. This step officially begins your SmileWhite treatment (“Appointment Confirmation Email”). You consent to receive sales invoices electronically.
     

  6. Availability of Dentists.
    SmileWhite is not responsible for the availability of partner dentists. SmileWhite will make visible the locations of the partner dentist to the nearest postcode given by the customer. This will be made available via a dropdown menu on the website, listing all partner dentist locations. No further details of the partner dentist will be supplied to the customer. The partner dentist will contact the customer to book the initial consultation to begin the SmileWhite treatment. The partner dentist will then contact the customer to book in any subsequent appointments deemed necessary by the dentist. The partner dentist will contact the customer within 7-14 days of the initial appointment for fitting of SmileWhite trays. Contacting the partner dentist to make appointments pertaining to this Agreement, outside of these Terms, will be considered a breach of the Agreement.
     

  7. Further Treatment.
    Before completion of purchase, the customer agrees that SmileWhite Ltd is not responsible for any dental treatment required pre-whitening. The SmileWhite products are sold on the basis that the customer has a ‘healthy mouth’. If the partner dentist makes the decision that the customer needs further treatment prior to whitening, this will be at the cost of the customer and will be agreed between the customer and the partner dentist. The partner dentists do not operate under an NHS dental scheme and will charge patients on a private cost basis. Once the agreed dental work has been carried out by the partner dentist to achieve a ‘healthy mouth’, the measurements for the SmileWhite products can be released to the manufacturer and made to order for the customer.
     

  8. Crowns, Veneers, Fillings and Other Dental Restorations.
    Due to the nature of the whitening procedure provided by SmileWhite: crowns, veneers, fillings and other such like dental restorations will not whiten in the process. SmileWhite takes no responsibility for the difference in colour that customers may experience if they choose not to replace these at a seperate cost pre-whitening.
     

  9. Appointment Cancellation.
    If a customer wishes to re-arrange an appointment with a partner dentist they may do so within 48 hours. The customer will need to arrange a subsequent appointment by contacting their partner dentist by telephone on the number provided to them at time of initial contact. They must also send their request in writing, via email, to the email address provided by the partner dentist at time of booking the initial appointment. SmileWhite will not be responsible for rescheduling further appointments between the customer and the partner dentist. The customer cannot cancel an appointment with a partner dentist and SmileWhite do not offer refunds on purchases due to change of mind. The customer has a period of 3 (three) months in which to re-arrange their initial appointment from the date of purchase, or forfeit the fee paid for the product. If the customer cancels any further appointments after the initial appointment with the partner dentist, the fee paid for the product will be forfeited.
     

  10. Refunds and Returns.
    SmileWhite products are non-refundable. Once you have received your whitening products from SmileWhite, returns or exchanges will not be accepted.
