From Hollywood to Hertfordshire, teeth whitening is one of the most popular cosmetic treatments available today and we’re pleased to offer it here at Leverstock Green Dental Practice.
Teeth naturally darken with age and, over time, are easily stained by food and drink such as tea, coffee and red wine. Smoking has an even more detrimental effect, causing teeth to become yellowed. Whilst over the counter remedies such as whitening toothpaste can help remove some surface staining, they can’t change the underlying colour of the tooth. Only professional-strength bleaching can have that dramatic effect.
Professional teeth whitening, such as we offer in our practice in Hemel Hempstead, is effective and suitable for most of our patients. The products we use are only available via a GDC registered dentist and deliver safe and radiant results.
Professional teeth whitening shouldn’t cause or increase tooth sensitivity if it’s done properly. If you’re prone to sensitive teeth, we’ll advise a slower treatment to further reduce risk.
Yes, whitening toothpastes can remove some surface stains and are an excellent option for maintaining whitening once you’ve had it done, however they can’t change the underlying colour of the teeth - only professional-grade bleaching can achieve that.
