Thinking of whitening your teeth this summer? Consulting a cosmetic dentist is a must

A cosmetic dentist takes no greater pleasure than in seeing a patient walk out of their practice with the smile that they have always dreamt of. At Harley Street Dental Clinic we have a unique collection of dental professionals, all of whom enjoy helping patients achieve that dream smile, whatever treatment they may require.

Whether you are seeking a quick course of teeth whitening to brighten up your smile to ensure that you are looking your best for your holiday snaps, or you are interested in more extensive treatment – teeth straightening with the help of our discreet orthodontic systems, for example, or even a complete smile makeover – your journey begins in the same way: a consultation with a cosmetic dentist here at Harley Street Dental Clinic.

Why you must consult a cosmetic dentist

At our Harley Street clinic, we understand that it can be tempting to seek out teeth whitening treatment on your own. After all, there are a plethora of products available on the internet, in high street shops, even from some beauty parlours, all of which claim to whiten your teeth. But these should be avoided.

A cosmetic dentist is an absolutely essential member of your teeth whitening team. There have been horror stories in the news recently of teeth whitening products that contain far more than the legal amount of hydrogen peroxide, which can do very serious damage to your mouth and can leave you in need of extensive restorative dental work. Even in the best-case scenario, these so-called whitening products won’t produce the promised results, and you will be left out of pocket.

The cosmetic dentist you see at Harley Street will check that you are in good oral health before talking you through the teeth whitening options available. The products we use are safe, reliable, predictable, and fast.
