Only Dentists should carry out teeth whitening
Whitening teeth has become popular over the last few years with everyone wanting a Hollywood smile. Everyone from the local beauty salon to high street shops is offering to give you a treatment, and Teeth Whitening London offers these services in common with other practices throughout the country. With many people paying out for poor and ineffective treatment, guidelines maintain only a qualified dentist should carry out teeth whitening.
The law in this area is unclear with companies specialising in teeth whitening insisting that this procedure is cosmetic and does not require a dentist. However when performed by a fully qualified dental professional, the procedure should use safe chemicals such as hydrogen peroxide in the bleach. There have been reports of chemicals such as chlorine dioxide being used by non-dental professionals. Using such chemicals can damage tooth enamel and cause sensitivity.
When looking for teeth whitening treatments head to a qualified Dentist. Professional dental technicians specialising in teeth whitening can ensure you receive the best possible treatment.
They can also advise you about the different types of teeth whitening procedures used to lighten the colour of teeth.
Typically teeth discolour over time due to age, what we eat, drink and whether we smoke. A dentist will offer a variety of treatments with varying results depending on the dental history and lifestyle of the patient and prices dependant on the type of treatment selected. Dental practices will assess the patient before carrying out any work and advise on the best way forward for the individual.
Treatments will vary from gel applied to night guards around the teeth to bleaching and laser treatments - Dentist London has a team of dental technicians specialising in all these techniques.
