Always consult a cosmetic dentist for teeth whitening – here’s why

If you’re thinking about teeth whitening, a cosmetic dentist should always be the first person you call. At Harley Street Dental Clinic we offer two options for patients interested in teeth whitening treatment, which take between two weeks and just one hour.

Teeth whitening treatments offered by a cosmetic dentist have been extensively tested and have been proven to be effective, reliable and, most importantly, safe. The same cannot be said for the plethora of whitening treatments available from the internet, the high street, and from some beauty parlours. These products are unlikely to have undergone such rigorous testing as those licensed for use in a dental practice, which means that in the best-case scenario they simply won’t work, and you will have wasted both time and money to be left with stained or discoloured teeth.

In the worst scenarios (which have been reported in the media recently) unlicensed teeth whitening products can actually harm your teeth, gums, and mouth. This can result in increased sensitivity, discomfort and pain, as well as leaving you requiring extensive restorative dental treatment. So, whilst these treatments may appear cheaper than those offered in dental practices, they can easily prove more expensive.

The teeth whitening treatment options available at Harley Street Dental Clinic have been used to successfully treat scores of happy patients, and have been proven reliable, long-lasting, and safe. If you want to join these satisfied patients, come into our Harley Street clinic for a consultation with a cosmetic dentist.

Teeth whitening from a Harley Street cosmetic dentist

There are two options for teeth whitening at our Harley Street dental practice, and both begin with a consultation with a cosmetic dentist.

As well as assessing the nature of staining on your teeth to check that teeth whitening will work effectively, your dentist will also carry out a thorough oral health check. As with any cosmetic procedure, whitening should only be carried out on a healthy mouth.
