Today many people seek straighter, whiter teeth. This gives a confident beautiful smile that radiates good health and well being.

Modern cosmetic dentistry can deliver this and the first port of call to achieve your smile make over is tooth whitening.

The only safe, simple, and legal approach to whitening your teeth is to have it professionally done by a dentist, and here at Fresh Dental Care, we have many years of experience in this area.

The first step is to book an appointment for a proper dental examination so that we can establish why you have darker teeth than would be ideal. We also check whether you have any fillings or crowns that show in your smile, and how they will be after the whitening process, as they will not change colour.

The science of the process is quite simple; the gels contain hydrogen peroxide which is a well known bleaching agent, and the way it works is that it removes the brown and yellow colours from your teeth allowing the white to shine.

We are sometimes asked if there are any problems with the technique and we are pleased to say that there are no long term problems, however, it is not unusual to get a little sensitivity during the whitening process and we always give a special soothing gel to our patients to deal with any sensitivity.
