What is Teeth whitening?
Teeth whitening works by using carbamide peroxide or hydrogen peroxide gel to break down staining built up on the tooth surface to make your teeth appear whiter.
This is usually done with custom-made trays which tightly fit around your teeth and hold the gel in place. The trays are worn until you are happy with the shade then will require to top up periodically.
PROFESSIONAL TEETH WHITENING
Why is it important for this be done professionally?
It is illegal for anyone other than a dental professional to carry out teeth whitening in the UK. A dentist will assess your teeth to make sure that whitening is safe and appropriate for you to have done. By instructing the services of a non-dental professional or ordering DIY kits online you run the risk of damage to your teeth, burning of gums and possible allergic reaction. This is due to use of unregulated products and lack of professional dental training with inadequate whitening trays.
Is it Safe?
Teeth whitening carried out professionally is safe and does not damage the teeth. You may experience some degree of sensitivity following teeth whitening treatment, however, this is usually temporary and subsides very quickly.
How long does it take?
This takes as little or as long for you to be happy with the shade. With our home teeth whitening kits you are in the driving seat. We recommend wearing the trays overnight for best results and should have a noticeable change within a week or two. Use may be extended to achieve a greater change in shade.
