Teeth Whitening

No matter how well we take care of our teeth, there’s little we can do to avoid gradual staining by darker foods and drinks like tea, coffee and wine.

Other activities like smoking can leave our smile discoloured.

Daily brushing and good hygiene will help keep your smile feeling healthy and looking great. But for true smile perfection, you’ll need help from professional whitening.

Teeth Whitening in Hartlepool

Professional whitening uses gentle bleaching to restore the smile’s natural shade in an hour or less. There are many benefits to having your teeth professionally whitened instead of using over-the-counter kits.

Hydrogen peroxide is a vital ingredient of most teeth whitening products. However, too much hydrogen peroxide can cause damage to your enamel which causes tooth sensitivity. 

To get noticeable results from whitening products, you’d need to use a product containing hydrogen peroxide of around 4% concentration.

Professional treatments are legally allowed to use up to around 6%. But, EU safety regulations mean that all shop-bought teeth whiteners can only contain up to 0.1% concentration of hydrogen peroxide.

That means that over-the-counter whiteners genuinely don’t have much impact on the colour of your teeth, but they can still lead to sensitivity and further damage.

And you can choose to brighten your smile right here in the clinic or from the comfort of home. Teeth whitening has never been more convenient.

My smile is important to me and the advice and treatment I’ve received form David was second to none .Thank you all.
