Injury, medication, ageing, medical treatments, diet, lifestyle - teeth can lose their natural white tone for all kinds of reasons. Fortunately, modern teeth whitening treatments can gently transform a dull smile, rejuvenating your appearance and boosting your confidence too.
Teeth whitening is a convenient way to achieve a beautiful smile quickly and easily. Many people choose this cosmetic procedure as a way to enhance their teeth in a non-invasive way. It’s also very gentle and pain-free, which makes it accessible and simple in exchange for great results.
Patients choose to have teeth whitening for a wide number of reasons including:
The results of this kind of treatment are transformational for patients who have a lot of staining and dulling of the teeth. Those with an aesthetically sound smile may also choose to have teeth whitening at 71 Dental to achieve a ‘perfect smile’ in line with the many celebrities and influencers we see so often in the media.
Teeth whitening involves the use of a special gel which is safely applied to the teeth to improve their whiteness; in many cases up to several shades. The gel may be applied and then exposed to a special light at the surgery to activate the whitening agents, or it may be applied at home every day for a few weeks - it depends on the best kind of treatment for you.
Once the whitening treatment has reached its optimum level, the whiteness can last a long time if you follow the aftercare instructions we provide. However the results will fade eventually at which point it’s easy to top up the whitening treatment to achieve a brighter smile once again.
Is Teeth Whitening Safe?
Teeth whitening supplied by certified dental clinics in the UK is safe. Extra precautions are carried out to ensure you are suitable for treatment, and that the gums and surrounding oral tissues are protected when the whitening gel is applied to the teeth. Please note that it is illegal for anyone other than a dental professional to provide teeth whitening.
Will Online Teeth Whitening Kits Give Me The Same Results As Whitening With 71 Dental?
We advise all patients to avoid using online whitening kits which are not certified as safe, and may harm your teeth and gums in multiple ways. Professional whitening with our team is effective and long-lasting, but most importantly it is completely safe and carried out by appropriately qualified dentists.
Can I Achieve Whiter Teeth With A Hygienist Visit?
A hygienist visit will clean the teeth and brighten them up by removing recent surface stains. However, for true enhancement with noticeable results, professional whitening treatment is required.
