It’s Valentine’s month, and our question for you is: are you showing your smile enough love? Our smile is one of the first things people notice about us, and dull or stained teeth can make us feel self-conscious. Teeth whitening treatment is a fast and effective way to give your smile a boost, whether you’re getting ready for a special occasion or just want to give your teeth some TLC.
Teeth whitening treatment involves the use of a special hydrogen peroxide whitening gel to remove stains and brighten your smile. At Ace Dental we offer two options for teeth whitening: power whitening in the practice, or at-home whitening using custom-made teeth whitening trays. The best option for you will depend on your individual circumstances, wants and needs, and will be discussed at your initial teeth whitening consultation.
If you’ve found us by searching the internet for teeth whitening treatment, it’s important to remember that teeth whitening must only be carried out under the supervision of a fully qualified dentist. This is enshrined in law, and is vital to remember for your safety. Hygienists can also carry out teeth whitening, on the prescription of your dentist.
The products we use are tried, tested and safe. However, there are many other products out there that promise you whiter teeth – often at what seem like bargain prices. Whitening products and treatments offered online, at beauty salons and on the high street will not have been through the stringent testing process. At best, they won’t work and you will have wasted your time and money. At worst, they can actually damage your teeth and gums. Remember: teeth whitening should only be carried out under a dentist’s supervision. If it sounds too good to be true, the chances are it is.
Here at Ace Dental our fully qualified practitioners offer two options for teeth whitening, after an initial assessment. Power whitening involves a single visit to the practice, during which all you need to do is sit back and relax in our massage chair while teeth whitening gel is carefully applied and activated with the help of a special light. This usually takes about 1.5 hours.Back to Blog
