Why You Should Always Choose Professional Teeth Whitening Treatments

Teeth whitening is enormously popular and you probably know at least a few people who have already had this procedure. We know it’s easy to buy teeth whitening kits online or over-the-counter, but if you value your dental health then it’s always best to choose a professional tooth whitening treatment.

If you buy over-the-counter products then they contain extremely small amounts of active ingredients and are unlikely to produce the kind of results you are looking for, unless you begin to over-use them which again will cause you problems. You only have one set of adult teeth and it pays to look after them and there is a very good reason why teeth whitening treatments are regulated in the UK.

By visiting a dentist in Downham Market, you can be sure of receiving results that are safe and effective and there is no need to worry that treatment could cause you any harm.

A Check-up Is an Important Part of Any Tooth Whitening Treatment

A dental check-up is an extremely important part of any professional teeth whitening treatment and is carried out to ensure your safety and comfort. Our Downham Market dentist will examine your teeth and gums as it’s important to make sure you don’t have any tooth decay or gum disease or any other dental problems that could make treatment uncomfortable at best or which may even result in damage to your oral health. If we do find anything wrong then we can treat these problems before safely whitening your teeth. Downham Market Dental Care can offer you two different types of teeth whitening treatments depending on whether you want to see the results straightaway or if you would prefer to whiten more slowly.

For Quick Results Choose Power Whitening

If you simply can’t wait to see your newly whitened smile then we are delighted to offer you power whitening. With this treatment your gums and lips will be protected before your teeth are painted with professional strength whitening gel. The gel is activated with a special light which helps it to penetrate your tooth enamel more easily so it can lift deep-seated stains and will achieve great results really quickly. This treatment may be repeated several times during the course of your appointment and in just one hour your teeth will look visibly brighter.

Whiten Your Teeth in the Comfort of Your Own Home

If you are not too bothered about seeing the results instantly or if you have particularly sensitive teeth then you might wish to whiten at home. Our Downham Market Dentist will supply you with custom-made whitening trays that will fit comfortably over your teeth. You will be given a whitening gel that is extremely safe for home use and its strength can be adjusted for anyone with tooth sensitivity issues. All you have to do is to wear the mouth trays for a few hours each day or if you prefer you can even leave them in overnight. Treatment normally takes just a couple of weeks and of course you will always have the whitening trays to use at a later date when you wish to top up the results.
