Teeth whitening is now the most popular cosmetic dentistry treatment in the UK. It is an affordable, quick and easy way to completely transform your smile. Whitening your teeth will knock years off your appearance, boost your confidence and just make you want to show off your new and improved smile.
Teeth whitening is a treatment process that lightens the shade of your teeth by removing surface stains. There are many different ways to whiten your teeth, with varying results, but here are three main reasons why you should always use professional teeth whitening.
As with most cosmetic health and beauty treatments, unfortunately, there are untrained practitioners all over the country that are administering teeth whitening. Not only is this illegal, but it is extremely dangerous for your teeth, gums and general health. Teeth whitening uses a form of bleach, a very strong chemical that can cause harm if not used correctly. When you choose professional whitening treatment, you can rest assured that the chemicals used are regulated and are safe to be used.
If you have used shop bought whitening products like toothpaste, mouthwashes and strips, you may have been left feeling disappointed with the results. This is because these products only contain a tiny amount of bleach that’s needed to make a difference to the shade of your teeth. As professional whitening treatment is administered by a qualified dental professional, you will have a much stronger bleaching gel applied to your teeth. This results in a much better finish, and is longer lasting.
You should only go ahead with teeth whitening treatment that is administered by a fully qualified dental professional. You can make sure of this by asking for their GDC (General Dental Council) number. A qualified dentist will spend the time with you before commencing treatment to make sure that you are a suitable candidate. It is rare, but sometimes it is not safe to carry out teeth whitening treatment on certain patients. Your dentist will also talk you through the process and make sure you are well-informed at every step.
