Teeth whitening treatments can help to restore the natural whiteness of your teeth, which can boost confidence, improve self-esteem and even make you look younger. With benefits like these it is no surprise that the popularity of this affordable cosmetic treatment has rocketed over the last few years!
In fact, according to Mintel research, more than one third of adults are considering having teeth whitening done. Due to the health risks associated with peroxide, and many beauty salons offering the treatment, UK law now states that teeth whitening can only be carried out by a registered dental professional. Teeth whitening treatments carried out by a professional dentist are safe, effective and reliable.
The simple procedure involves using a whitening product containing a bleaching agent such as peroxide, which gently lightens your tooth enamel until the desired tint of white is achieved. The effect of the whitening treatment typically depends on the strength of the agent contained in the whitening product, this will be tailored to your unique preferences during your first visit.
We have a wide range of teeth whitening techniques available to you at Keynsham Dental Care and can advise on the most suitable for your individual requirements, expectations and lifestyle.
Teeth whitening is a well established procedure in cosmetic dentistry. The whitening process is effective on most discoloured teeth. Darker stains such as those caused by antibiotics are more difficult to whiten. The degree of brightness will vary between individuals depending on the structure of the teeth.
All patients will be required to have a thorough examination prior to the procedure, to determine their suitability. It is also recommended that patients visit the hygienist to ensure any surface staining is removed, so the full effects of the procedure can be achieved. If your teeth are not suitable for whitening we have other treatments that will be able to get a whitening effect.
Please note- recent changes in the law have now made any tooth whitening procedure illegal unless carried out by a dentist. Salons that offer tooth whitening are breaking the law and you may seriously be risking the health of your teeth and gums if it is carried out by an untrained practitioner.
We are monitored and regulated by the Care Quality Commission (CQC) which ensures that the care we provide meets government standards of quality and safety. Professional teeth whitening treatments provided by Keynsham Dental Care are reliable, long-lasting and safe for your general health.
