Whilst a teeth whitening treatment is not inherently dangerous, it can be damaging in the wrong hands. It is now illegal for anyone but a qualified dental professional to perform this procedure. Previously, inexperienced unqualified people were setting up teeth whitening clinics, often using strong solutions of acid and bleach to whiten teeth. This could be very painful and damaging to the teeth by dissolving away the surface layers of enamel.
Our ‘at home’ system includes custom made trays into which the bleach is placed, produced from super accurate impressions of each patient’s teeth. Not only does this make them more comfortable, but also greatly reduces the risk of any burning of the soft tissue from the whitening agent.
Whilst it is now illegal to perform this procedure if you are not a dentist, people are still being prosecuted for this. Never risk your teeth in this way; instead talk to our Azure Dental team about our teeth whitening treatment options.
Our treatments can be designed to suit the changes that you wish to make. Some patients aim for the super bright ‘Hollywood’ smile utilising the Enlighten system, whilst others are happy for an improvement of just a few shades of whiteness to be achieved with the Custom Home Whitening system. The reasons for wanting whiter teeth are wide and varied and some patients prefer the results to be more discreet.
Providing that you are a suitable candidate for this procedure, and that your teeth are not so heavily filled and stained as to require veneers to be fitted instead. Most patients should expect to see an improvement in the whiteness of their teeth by up to eight shades.
We will discuss these issues with you at your initial consultation and also explain more about the different procedures and pros and cons of each such as speed (Zoom), intensity (Enlighten) or slow comfortable gradual change (Home). This is also an excellent opportunity to ask any questions that you might have about this, or any other cosmetic dental treatment.
