If you’re planning a smile makeover that will leave you with sparkling white teeth and oodles of confidence, you don’t need to go to the trouble of booking a series of visits to a cosmetic dentist for veneers.

It’s much easier and more affordable to invest in a teeth whitening treatment such as the type we offer here at The Dental Centre London. If you’re new to teeth whitening and want a lighter, brighter smile in just weeks – read on.

How does teeth whitening work?

When you first come to us to have your teeth whitened, our specialists will take impressions of your mouth so that a custom mouth guard can be created. This is what you will then use for the rest of your treatment.

When your custom mouth guard is ready, you will undergo your first whitening session in clinic, and you will be expected to continue the treatment at home following the instruction provided to you at the time.

All of the equipment you need to whiten your teeth will be provided at the time, along with how to use the kit.

How long does teeth whitening treatment take?

Because our expertly developed teeth bleaching is so effective, you can see an incredible transformation in the appearance of your teeth in as little as 3-4 weeks. What’s more is that our teeth whitening service is completely safe and will not remove any of the surface area of your tooth.

It’s kind to enamel and will not cause any kind of irritation – even to sensitive teeth.

For best effects, you need to continue your whitening treatment at home once you’ve had your first visit with us. We recommend you apply the whitening product over 8 evenings – at your own convenience – anywhere between 30 minutes up to 1 hour.

It’s worth noting that if you do suffer from sensitive teeth, opting for shorter sessions may help protect your teeth.

How much gel should be used when teeth whitening?

The gel we use is very specialist, meaning that it has the perfect amount of Hydrogen peroxide to safely whiten your teeth without causing any harm to the enamel or surrounding gums.

Your dentist will advise you on the exact amount to use, but in some cases your teeth may be too sensitive to finish the treatment. If this does occur, please get in touch with us and we will advise you on the best way to proceed.

How much does teeth whitening cost?

We appreciate that many areas of dentistry can be a big investment, which is why we aim to make all of our services as affordable as possible. We’re also proud to say that we’re completely transparent with our fees, understanding how important it is for our patients to know what to expect and to be able to budget for their treatments.

We also offer two additional payment plans, so that no matter your financial situation, you can still get the treatment you need.

Is teeth whitening safe?

This is one of the most commonly asked questions we get here at The Dental Centre – and w can understand why. Teeth whitening has become increasingly popular over the years, and you can now get your hands on cheap teeth whitening kits in shops and online at the touch of a button.

It’s worth noting that not all of these kits are safe for use, and that professional teeth whitening gel is specially concentrated for safe, harm-free use.

The teeth whitening services we offer are completely safe, and we would always recommend that you see a dentist for your teeth whitening treatment rather than being tempted to get a kit online.

Are you looking to revamp your smile?

Nothing beats a shiny bright smile, and for many, tooth whitening is a much quicker, cheaper and effective alternative to more invasive options like veneers or implants.
