Update: April 2019
Improve the look of your smile with professional bleaching from our team of dental clinicians and achieve safe and effective results with minimal fuss or delay!
Stained or discoloured teeth can be caused by a number of factors, including lifestyle and genetic predispositions. Whitening products can remove stains accumulated over time and lighten your natural shade and this can be effectively maintained with good oral healthcare routines and by reducing or eliminating detrimental factors, such as red wine, coffee or smoking.
For long-term maintenance, top-up whitening gels can be purchased from us following treatment to be used at home.
Come and talk to us about professional tooth whitening. Not only are we fully qualified and licensed to perform the treatment, but we can also take your individual dental needs into account and deliver a customised treatment to achieve the very best results.
But don’t just take our word for it – here’s what Stephen Loat from the Oral Health Foundation has to say about safe and effective tooth whitening:
Top three tooth whitening tips
1. Don’t purchase teeth whitening products from overseas
While the prices might make it tempting, don’t purchase tooth whitening products from abroad. It is difficult to guarantee the product ingredients, and this puts your safety at risk. It is much harder to police companies and products online, so you cannot be sure they are regulated and of the highest standards. The best way to know that tooth whitening products are safe is to check with your dentist first.
2. Talk to your dental team
When it comes to tooth whitening, there really isn’t a better source of information than your dentist. Not only are they fully-qualified and licensed to perform the treatment, but they will be able to take your dental needs into account. Dentists can treat you with 6% hydrogen peroxide (the bleaching agent that whitens teeth) – this is nearly 6,000 times stronger than any over-the-counter tooth whitening product. Because of this, tooth whitening by a dentist will give you the very best results.
3. Don’t break the law
It is illegal for anyone other than a qualified dental professional such as a dentist or hygienist. Any beauticians that claim to offer a tooth whitening service are breaking the law. By having your teeth whitened by a dentist you can rest assured that you are getting a good quality service and that they are operating within the strict guidelines of the law. When tooth whitening goes wrong, it can result in long-lasting or permanent damage – it is not worth saving a few pounds to put your health at risk.
