Tooth whitening is an increasingly popular cosmetic dentistry procedure that can make a massive difference to the appearance of your smile without breaking the bank.

As we get older, our teeth naturally darken and discolour due to factors such as diet, age, lifestyle and even genetics. Tooth whitening at Fresh Dental Care is a relatively inexpensive treatment that can make your teeth look younger, cleaner and healthier. The great thing about tooth whitening too is that is disguises flaws on your teeth and makes them look straighter.

To get the most out of tooth whitening at Fresh Dental Care, we always advise our clients to give us as much information as possible about their medical and dental history. We will, of course, have had a comprehensive chat with you when you joined the practice but it’s always wise to keep us up-to-date.

Tooth whitening is suitable for the majority of people and has years of evidence demonstrating its safety, but – as with some other dental procedures – it isn’t suitable for everyone (for example, under 16s).

When discussing tooth whitening with your dentist at Fresh Dental Care, you should let us know if you know you are pregnant (or think you might be) or if you’re breastfeeding. Tell us about allergies too and any sensitivity you might be experiencing with your teeth or gums.

By fully disclosing any important information about your past and current health (e.g. being diabetic or on blood thinners such as Warfarin), your dentist is able to give you the best possible advice about whether a treatment is right for you or not.

Remember, whether you decide to go ahead with home tooth whitening or in-surgery tooth whitening through Fresh Dental Care, tooth whitening doesn’t change the colour of any crowns, large fillings or areas of tooth surface loss, so you may need these restorations changed after the treatment is complete to complement your whiter, brighter smile.

With tooth whitening at Fresh Dental Care, as with everything else, we do all we can to give you individual advice and care. All we ask of you in return is that you speak up for your teeth. When we’re all reading from the same page, we can give you the best possible results, which is why we’re all here.
