Teeth Whitening in Greenwich, South East London
Dental bleaching, also known as tooth whitening, is a common procedure in general dentistry and restores the teeth to its natural tooth colour and at times beyond the natural colour.
If carried out by a trained dental professional, whitening is perfectly safe and will be based on their knowledge of your oral health. At the first appointment they will discuss the available options and develop a treatment plan for you besides showing you a chart of what shade your teeth are before treatment and what shade you are likely to achieve post treatment.
Whitening won’t damage the surface of your teeth or change their shape and are thus a much safer option that alternatives like Veneers as it doesn’t involve permanently altering the tooth’s structure and is easy to look after.
A carefully controlled concentration of bleach is applied to your teeth using specially made trays that fit in your mouth for a predetermined duration as prescribed by the dentist. You may experience some sensitivity for a short time during your treatment but this is normal and will soon fade away after completion.
