Teeth whitening: your five-minute guide to the world’s most popular cosmetic dental procedure

19th July 2016

Teeth whitening is the most popular cosmetic dental procedure in the world. Denchic Dental Spa in North London offers three professional teeth whitening option, designed to fit each client’s individual needs.

If you are considering having teeth whitening treatment, the first thing to remember is that by law the procedure can only be carried out by a dentist, or a hygienist, hygiene therapist, or clinical dental technician who has been properly trained and is acting on a dentist’s prescription.

Teeth whitening treatments provided by dental clinics such as Denchic in North London are regulated by the General Dental Council. The products used by a cosmetic dentistry practitioner will be extensively tried, tested, and safe, and will contain legally safe amounts of bleaching agent.

Beauticians and anyone who isn’t a qualified dental professional who provide teeth whitening treatment do so illegally. By going down this route your risk poorly-fitted mouth trays, bleaching gels that at best will be ineffective and at worst could be very dangerous, wasting your money and risking your health. To put it simply, don’t do it. Instead, join us for a free, no-obligation whitening consultation with a cosmetic dentist at our North London spa.

How teeth whitening works

Professional teeth whitening involves the use of special bleaching gel to gently and safely remove common stains such as those caused by tea and coffee from the teeth. Treatment times will vary depending on how stained your teeth are, but in most cases take between a fortnight and just one hour, depending on the procedure you choose.
