Advantages of professional teeth whitening

Do you want a whiter smile but don’t know whether it is worth attending a dental surgery to have it done?

When you come to Harley Street Dental Clinic, our teeth whitening Harley Street will leave you with a smile you wouldn’t want to stop showing off and results that can last well over a year. Great!

In this article, we look at some of the key advantages of undertaking teeth whitening Harley Street.

Thorough results

Many patients who undertake teeth whitening Harley Street are surprised at how different the results look from other times when they have attempted to whiten their teeth at home using gels, toothpaste or powders.

And, of course, one of the key differences is that our team at Harley Street Dental Clinic will not only whiten the front of your teeth, but we will whiten the entire surface of the tooth and can match our gels to remove deeply set stains. This will create a more even-looking finish and a more thorough result.

Quicker results

When you have been trying to whiten your teeth at home using gels or toothpaste, you may have become frustrated at the time it took to remove even the simplest surface stain.

And even if you did experience success when using at-home whitening products, one of the key benefits of having your teeth whitened by a member of our team is that the whitening effect will occur a lot sooner.

We often state to our patients that any whitening that occurs at our clinic takes place over 2 or even 3 sessions. Our team will lighten your teeth with an oxidizing gel and send you home with some targeted whitening gel to wear in a mouthguard overnight for the next 14 days.

Once this is over, we will then often work to remove any stubborn stains in the chair, ensuring that you are left with a whiter and brighter smile that lasts.

Sensitivity issues

If you have used an over-the-counter bleaching product to whiten your teeth, chances are you may have experienced a problem with worsening sensitivity. Yikes!

Whilst there is a link between undertaking dental whitening and sensitive teeth worsening, our team can ensure that the gels we use and other treatments we apply to whiten your teeth will not worsen any underlying sensitivity.

Of course, if you suffer from extreme sensitivity, our team could offer you a different option for tooth whitening, such as veneers or composite bonding.

Longer lasting effects

As we briefly mentioned earlier, when you have your teeth whitened professionally, the results will last longer.

Whilst the treatment isn’t permanent, it can last anywhere from 2 months to 3 years, depending on your lifestyle and whether you maintain it at home using the gels we provide. So, it’s well worth investing in the longevity of your whiter smile.


And finally, there is the confidence that you will have in a job well done by our team!

As we will base the level of whitening on what your aesthetic goals are, you can rest assured that the final result will leave you with the smile you have always wanted.
