Brighten your Smile Safely and Effectively With Teeth Whitening

Teeth whitening is an easy cosmetic dental treatment that can rejuvenate your whole face. If you’re thinking of brightening your smile, read on to find out why professional teeth whitening is the only option you should consider.
How Does Professional Teeth Whitening Work?
Professional teeth whitening works by using custom made bleaching trays for your teeth which hold the whitening agent against your teeth. The process is incredibly simple – so simple that you can do it from the comfort of your own home.
At your appointment with us here in Nottingham, we’ll give you the whitening solution and take a 3-d scan of your teeth, so we can make your bleaching trays (these are a little bit like a gum super-thin shield). You can expect this appointment to last about 40 minutes, so you’ll have plenty of time to ask questions about the treatment journey. You can then use the whitening trays to apply the special gel as you sleep. The process takes 4-6 weeks, depending on how significant a change you’re hoping to make to your tooth shade.
Teeth whitening treatment uses carefully controlled levels of carbamide peroxide, which releases precarious oxygen ions. When this oxygen comes into contact with the surface stains on your teeth, they break apart the chemical bonds that retain stains on and in your tooth enamel. This bleaches the stains away to reveal whiter-looking teeth.
Issues with Non-Dentist Supervised Teeth Whitening Treatment
Not only is professional teeth whitening more effective and longer-lasting, but it’s also the only guaranteed safe treatment. Over-the-counter whitening products are unpredictable and poorly regulated. If you do not use custom-made trays, there is a risk of the bleaching agent making contact with the soft tissues in your mouth and causing irritation.
There has also been a rise in unqualified parties carrying out in-chair teeth whitening (GDC figures show a mammoth 26% rise between 2019-2020), a worrying revelation as recipients of this treatment have suffered severe damage, ranging from burns to tooth loss.
