Teeth whitening treatments lighten the teeth with the use of Hydrogen Peroxide in the form of a gel. This is a safe procedure as long as you follow the advice of our Dentists.
Before treatment can commence a thorough examination of your teeth and gums is necessary because the treatment is only suitable if they are healthy. It is also recommended that a hygiene treatment is done so that the treatment can have the optimum effect.
Teeth whitening can be part of a smile makeover and one component of an overall new smile. We also whiten teeth on many occasions after orthodontic treatment, just to add the finishing touch.
Sometimes there may be some sensitivity to the whitening treatment but this normally eases within 24 hours of the treatment.
Please remember that The General Dental Council has ruled that teeth whitening is within the practise of dentistry and only Dentists or fully trained dental professionals should carry out this procedure.
