4 Teeth Whitening Facts You Should Know Before Starting Your Treatment

The world is becoming more and more fashion-conscious. The city of London is no different to the trend. Thus, demand for professional teeth whitening treatment is rising steadily. This particular cosmetic dentistry treatment has come a long way and – thanks to both home kits and in-chair procedures – it is now more easily accessible to the masses.  

If you are considering to get your teeth whitened, here’re some facts that you should be aware of.

4 teeth whitening facts you must know beforehand

  • The procedure is very simple: To put it in simple words, the procedure involves bleaching of the teeth to wear out the stains. It can’t make your teeth sparkling white but can definitely lighten their colour by a few shades. Your dentist will first check if your teeth are suitable to undergo the bleaching procedure. He or she will also listen to your expectations. Then, if you want to proceed, the dentist will take an impression of your teeth. 
  • Teeth whitening only works on your natural teeth: Dr Siavash Mirfendereski is a renowned dentist associated with the Wimpole Dental Office. He wants to share a word of caution. Teeth whitening treatment procedure will only be effective on your natural teeth and not on dentures, veneers, crowns and fillings. If you’ve these fixtures in your mouth, the colour of those teeth will remain the same even after undergoing the teeth whitening procedure.
  • Little sensitivity in the teeth is a part of the game: There are a few varieties of teeth whitening treatments available to you. Irrespective of the treatment you choose, there’s always the chance that your teeth and the gums can be little sensitive as a treatment side-effect.
  • Results are not permanent: Teeth whitening results don’t last an eternity. They can linger up to 3 years at the most. Meanwhile, your lifestyle and health factors – like excessive consumption of red wine, coffee, smoking and certain medications can reduce that time further. 

As per legal provision, only a qualified dentist can perform teeth whitening. Even registered dental hygienists and therapists can perform the treatment under the prescription of a dentist. These days, many beauty and skincare clinics offer the treatment at a pretty low price. You should always get the treatment done by any of the professionals recognised by the law. If the procedure is not carried out with precision, it can cause irreversible damage to your teeth and the gums. As far as Londoners are concerned, they can contact the cosmetic dentist at Wimpole Dental Office on Wimpole Street. This private dental practice possesses an impressive track record in successful handling of teeth whitening cases.
