Teeth whitening is one of the most popular dental treatments and in recent years the number of people choosing to have this treatment has increased significantly. Whitening is a relatively cheap treatment which can give your smile an instant boost and make it look healthy and attractive. Numerous celebrities are sporting perfect, glowing sets of pearly whites, which has inspired many people to follow suit and visit their dentist.
Types of whitening treatment
There are different types of whitening treatment available, which include in-chair treatments and at-home treatments and in some cases a combination of both types of treatment may be recommended. In-chair treatments are usually very effective and can lighten the teeth by several shades in less than an hour with very impressive results. At-home treatments may be recommended to maintain the new colour of the teeth, rather than being the first treatment to whiten stained, yellow teeth.
Why should I go to my dentist?
You may have seen amazing deals and offers for whitening treatments in beauty salons and shopping malls, however, it is always advisable to see your dentist if you want whitening treatment. Teeth whitening is a dental treatment and according to the British Dental Association, this means that it should only be offered by trained professionals.
Whitening is a simple and safe procedure if it is carried out by a practitioner with experience and the relevant qualifications. If somebody who has only had a day’s training provides the service, this carries risks and a good deal may turn into a nightmare, leaving you in need of professional dental work to correct the mistakes made.
Going to your dentist will ensure that the procedure is carried out safely and properly. Your dentist can also check your oral health as whitening procedures shouldn’t be carried out if an individual has existing or untreated dental conditions, which should be addressed prior to treatment. If you are worried about paying for whitening treatment there are finance options available, which allow you to spread the cost of the treatment over a period of time, rather than paying up-front.
