A cosmetic dentist is essential for teeth whitening treatment

If you want whiter teeth, a cosmetic dentist is a must. At Harley Street Dental Clinic our skilled cosmetic team offer three options for teeth whitening treatment: home whitening, power whitening here in the practice, or a combination of both.

Teeth whitening has seen a massive surge in interest in recent years, and any cosmetic dentist is likely to have carried out a number of whitening procedures. This is partly thanks to celebrity culture, and partly thanks to people learning the true value of a beautiful, bright smile.

Our teeth are easily stained, by food and drink including tea, coffee, and red wine, by smoking cigarettes and cigars, and by some medical conditions and medicines. When carried out by a cosmetic dentist, teeth whitening is a safe and reliable way to remove these stains, restoring the natural brightness of your smile.

Teeth whitening at Harley Street

Our three whitening options at Harley Street Dental practice are suitable for most patients, and in most cases your personal preference will be the deciding factor. They all start with a consultation with a cosmetic dentist, who will assess your oral health as well as checking you are suitable for treatment.

Power whitening takes just one hour and is carried out by a cosmetic dentist here at Harley Street. Home whitening involves using custom-made whitening trays and gel at home for two weeks. Combination whitening starts with home treatment before a final session with a dentist here in the practice.

Why a cosmetic dentist is a must

Teeth whitening products prescribed by a dentist have a long track-record and have been proven to be both safe and effective. Other “budget” whitening options are unlikely to work, and in the worst-case scenario could end up causing damage to your teeth and gums.
