Over time, our smile can dull and stain. The good news is that teeth whitening is a safe and simple way to revive your smile, helping it appear brighter, healthier and more youthful.
Teeth whitening can only legally be carried out by dental professionals registered with the General Dental Council, whatever brand or treatment is offered. This means that you can guarantee that the procedure will be safe and effective for your smile.
The treatment can lift staining and dullness to create a whiter and more uniform smile. While it can be carried out on almost anyone, it’s especially recommended for those with severe staining, and in cases where it can boost the results of other treatments (such as Invisalign). With our practice, you can expect:
Yes, but this can only be guaranteed when it’s carried out by GDC-registered dental professionals. While some people can experience passing sensitivity afterwards, the procedure won’t damage your smile.
The whitening ingredient in over-the-counter kits is much lower than in a professional setting (0.1% compared to as much as 6%), so your results may not be as bright. Additionally, some shop-bought kits can be abrasive on the teeth and wear away the enamel.
Switching to a sensitive toothpaste can help. If the problem doesn’t resolve within a few weeks, get in touch with our team.
No, teeth whitening doesn’t lift the colour of implants, crowns and dental appliances. It’s best to have whitening carried out before these, so the appliances can be matched to your newly-whitened smile.
It depends on your diet and lifestyle – for example, those who drink coffee and alcohol, and those who smoke, may see stains building up again on their teeth relatively quickly. If you avoid staining factors, the results can be permanent, with a top-up required now and then.
