Healthier looking teeth with teeth whitening from South East London dentist

13 / 03 / 2010

In the ever-growing world of cosmetic dentistry, one procedure stands out as the most recognisable and effective. Teeth whitening has existed in one form or another for centuries with many different substances and techniques being used to brighten teeth or remove discoloured patches. But what is it about whiter teeth that is so appealing?

Basically, whiter teeth make us look younger and healthier as teeth generally tend to discolour as we age. So a set of shining, white teeth can subconsciously make us appear much younger. With the advent of modern dentistry techniques, teeth whitening has become even more effective and crucially more affordable which has made it into one of the most popular treatments available.

Whitening treatments generally come in two types: in-surgery whitening and take home treatments. Both of which are available from South East London dentists. Dentists always recommend that you only have teeth whitening carried out by trained professionals as some whitening treatments available form the internet can be dangerous. This is because the active agent is usually hydrogen peroxide, which can be damaging to the soft tissue at high concentrations. A dentist will use the necessary safety equipment to protect your mouth and can also use lower strength whitening gels for take-home treatments.

Teeth whitening varies widely in price with the most affordable procedures costing little more than £40 but more extensive treatment will be available. Whitening of up to ten shades is possible depending on the treatment and the nature of your teeth but whatever the results, teeth whitening can make your smile appear healthier and younger without the need for surgery or orthodontic treatment.
