Once only available to Hollywood’s A-list, it is now offered at a variety of beauty retailers as well as dental surgeries in many areas, making it easier than ever to get yourself a perfect set of pearly-whites.
But did you know that teeth whitening can only legally be carried out by a registered dental professional? This is for your safety, as there are harsh chemicals involved in whitening your teeth and the risk of damage or discomfort is much greater with a therapist who is not qualified to offer dental treatments. Teeth whitening is undoubtedly safer in the hands of a trained dentist, and you’re much more likely to get professional-standard results too.
If you’re interested in having your teeth whitened at Stretford Road Dental Practice, we’ll firstly invite you for an initial assessment so that we can make sure your mouth is healthy and you’re suitable for treatment. We’ll also take moulds of your teeth, which will be sent away to create your very own ‘trays’ that will fit your mouth perfectly.
You will then be able to come back in for an appointment with one of our dentists, who will show you how to apply the whitening gel to the trays and fit them to your teeth, and will advise you on how often you should wear them. You’ll be able to ask any questions you might have about the treatment, and then you’ll be free to take your trays and whitening gel home to start the process at your leisure.
We will supply you with the whitening gel syringes, and after these have run out you will be able to purchase more from us in practice.
