Teeth whitening – why is it essential to have professional teeth whitening?

Teeth whitening is a cosmetic dentistry procedure that has become increasingly popular over the past 20 years.

Research shows that 25% of people who seek to have their teeth whitened in the UK do not opt for a professional service but instead go to a beauty therapist or cheaper unqualified individual offering the service. This is where the procedure can become dangerous for patients.

So how does this relate to the procedure? Teeth whitening should ways be a bespoke procedure that uses your exact tooth measurements. Here at Fresh Dental, the whitening trays used to apply the whitening agent are custom made and the whitening agent is applied safely, so that there are no gaps where the agent can seep through and cause harm to your gums. In contrast, unqualified beauty therapists and other businesses without the relevant credentials use a ‘one-size-fits-all’ design that is not measured to the patient’s tooth structure, allowing for whitening agent to potentially leak and harm your gums.

The process here at Fresh Dental

You will need to attend an initial consultation where you can talk through the process with your dentist here at Fresh. You and your dentist will choose the shade that you would like your teeth to be. Once you are happy, we will proceed and take impressions of your teeth so that your custom whitening trays can be created. When we have created these the whitening agent can be applied to your teeth and you can continue the process at home.
