What is teeth whitening?
Teeth whitening treatments are transformational, adding a sparkle to your smile that can leave you with greater confidence. West1 Dental Clinic offers a number of whitening treatments including home use whitening trays and laser whitening which is carried out at our Harley Street clinic.
Teeth whitening is an affordable and popular cosmetic treatment that can make a big difference to your smile. Whitening treatments offer a safe and effective method of improving the aesthetics of an otherwise healthy smile when carried out by a dental professional.
Whitening treatments are a great option if you have stained teeth as a result of smoking or drinking tea, coffee or alcohol, all of which can discolour teeth.
While whitening your teeth can be a great way to improve your smile, it’s important to remember that these products lighten the teeth using a bleaching agent. It is therefore recommended that teeth whitening treatments are only carried out by trained dental professionals.
Whitening toothpaste can work to remove some surface stains by polishing your enamel, but you will not see noticeable results. That’s where West1 Dental Clinic can help. Using the latest most effective whitening treatments, we can help remove stains and restore your shine.
Teeth Whitening at our Harley Street Clinic
Brighten your smile in just one hour at our Harley Clinic. We use the very latest state of the art equipment which is proven to achieve safe and impressive results. It works gently to remove stubborn stains and create a smile which is up to 6 shades whiter. The treatment is carried out by experts in our safe and professional practice. We also offer a free dental health check before we carry out your whitening procedure to make sure you are suitable for whitening treatments.
Customised Home Whitening Kits
If you would prefer to whiten your teeth at home, West1 Dental Clinic also offers professional home whitening kits.
Custom trays are made which comfortably fit over your teeth. A gel is used in the trays to whiten the teeth overnight. For maximum results, you should wear your whitening trays for 7-10 nights.
Our whitening kits come in a variety of strengths and your treatment will be customised for you.
A White Smile in 3 Simple Steps
1. Have a free check-up with us first
To make sure your teeth and gums are suitable for the whitening treatment, we ask that you have a check-up with us first. If you are dentally fit, we will then take impressions of your teeth so we can make the custom-made trays which are an essential part of the treatment.
2. Start Your Treatment
When your trays are ready, we’ll invite you back for your whitening treatment. Your dentist will:
• Discuss what shade you want to achieve
• Protect your gums before the treatment starts
• Apply the whitening solution to your teeth, securing in place with the trays
• Activate the whitening solution
The whole process takes just one hour and is completely pain-free.
3. Keep Your Teeth Healthy & Bright
To help maintain your whiter teeth, your dentist may also recommend a home whitening kit so you can maintain the desired shade of your teeth at home.
