If you want a quick and safe boost to your smile, teeth whitening may be the perfect cosmetic dental treatment for you.
For a time, bright, white teeth were the preserve of film stars, celebrities and the super-rich. These days, however, things are different, and teeth whitening is one of the most popular cosmetic dental treatments available. It’s simple, affordable and a great way to boost your smile.
The most important thing to remember about teeth whitening treatment is that it should always be carried out by a qualified dentist. While the treatment is available in some beauty salons, this is illegal without a dental professional present. Tooth whitening products can also be bought from the internet, but these are likely to be substandard and can end up damaging your teeth and causing sensitivity and pain. Remember: if something seems too good to be true, it probably is – and it’s certainly not worth risking your oral health for!
Teeth whitening carried out by a fully-trained dentist is safe, reliable and should not cause any discomfort. We offer both in-practice and home teeth whitening, using the popular Zoom tooth whitening system.
The Zoom whitening system used in the practice requires just one appointment, which will last about an hour and a half and is a non-invasive, relaxing procedure. Imagine walking into the practice with stained teeth and walking out less than two hours later with a bright, fresh, white smile!
The home tooth whitening system uses bespoke trays and whitening gel, which you wear overnight for one to two weeks, depending on what your dentist tells you. You will still need to visit the practice so that we can make the trays to exactly fit your mouth.
At the Harley Street Dental Clinic we don’t believe in quick-fix solutions when there is an underlying problem, and we won’t provide tooth whitening treatment without treating any underlying dental health issues first, as this can do more damage than good. However, as we offer a full range of dental treatment, there’s no need to worry, as we can fix any tooth or gum problems before your tooth whitening treatment begins.
