Our teeth have to put up with a lot over the years. No matter how effective you are at maintaining good dental hygiene, certain drinks such as tea, coffee and red wine can stain your teeth. Many people choose to counteract this by having tooth whitening treatment.

Do you have to go to the dentist to have a tooth whitening treatment?

You don’t have to visit the dentist to have this treatment done. Many pharmacies and cosmetic shops sell home teeth whitening kits over the counter.

The problem with these kits is that they come in a one-size-fits-all formulation, and often they just aren’t the right strength for you. This means they often don’t work as well as you’d hoped, which is disappointing as well as being a waste of money.

What are the benefits of having a tooth whitening treatment at your dental practice?

There are two key benefits to having a tooth whitening treatment at the dentist.

1. Safety

When you have a treatment at your dental practice you can feel reassured that everyone involved in the process is properly trained and qualified. You know that they have the right equipment and that all tools used will be sterile. Though tooth whitening treatments are completely safe when used correctly, they do contain hydrogen peroxide so it is important to have confidence in the person applying it.

2. Effectiveness

When you have a tooth whitening treatment with your dentist it will be a much more personalised experience. The qualified staff members will be able to assess your teeth and ensure a precise formulation is used to get the best results.
