Safe, gentle, legal: whitening done the right way
If you want your whitening treatment to be safe, gentle and – crucially – legal, you’ll need to see a dental professional. Don’t be tempted by the claims of backstreet beauty salons – they are illegal and often use dangerously high concentrations of bleaching gel, which causes permanent damage to teeth and gums. When you come to the dentist for whitening, you’ll first need to have a consultation to confirm you’re a suitable candidate – whitening can be dangerous without the green light from a medical professional. But that’s not all – professional whitening is highly effective too, using a much higher-strength bleaching gel than anything you can buy over the counter.
Almost. There are a few patients for whom whitening may not be advisable, which is why it’s imperative to only have teeth bleaching done by a qualified dental professional.
The dentist is your only option if you want your whitening to work and you want it to be safe. Unlike over-the-counter or online products, professional whitening means the dentist can prescribe the highest-strength bleaching agent for you, yet adjust it if it causes any problems. This means you’ll get the best possible results with the least discomfort.
No, the whitening gel only affects natural teeth – so if you are having dental restorations such as crowns and bridges, make sure you talk to your dentist about whitening too. It’s recommended that whitening is carried out first so that restorations can be colour-matched to your newly brightened teeth.
