Teeth whitening in North London explained

21st March 2017

Teeth whitening in North London with Denchic Dental Spa is a treatment that many patients are now choosing to enhance their look. We want to make it easy for you to choose this relatively simple cosmetic dentistry treatment.

Making teeth whitening a part of your beauty treatment regime means you are paying attention to your smile which forms the centre of your face. A bright smile radiates self-assurance and happiness.

How does it work?

Teeth whitening bleaches the teeth by using a special gel. If you choose in-clinic teeth whitening in North London with us, you have the gel applied and a special light activates the whitening ingredient.

If you decide to opt for at-home whitening, we supply you with custom-made trays. These are formed using impressions of your teeth to ensure they fit snugly and that the product you use will not leak. You wear them for a few hours each day or overnight for around two weeks to see great results.

Who is suitable?

Almost everyone is suitable for teeth whitening as long as they have healthy, clean teeth. If you need a visit to the hygienist and a polish, it is advisable to have this done prior to whitening so that the gel can work directly on the surface of your teeth. Any cavities need to be seen to as well, so that the gel cannot get into any holes.

There are some marks that do not respond well to teeth whitening. These are called intrinsic stains that are built into the teeth. One of our team will let you know if this is your situation, and provide possible alternatives to standard teeth whitening for improving your smile.

It is not advisable to have teeth whitening if you are pregnant or breastfeeding. The procedure is safe but there are lots of changes going on in the body during these time periods and some of those affect the teeth. On balance, it is better to wait before you have this treatment under these circumstances.

For similar reasons, teeth whitening is not advised for young people under the age of 18. The teeth are still forming and changing, so it is best to let them finish doing that before applying any kind of bleaching agent.
