Tooth Whitening

Tooth whitening is a very popular treatment and I am sure you have seen it advertised in many places not just a dental practice. BUT beware tooth whitening should only be carried out by a dental professional, who is trained to do this procedure.

The procedure and costs

At Meltham Dental Care tooth whitening costs from £200 for your upper and lower teeth.

The process involves a consultation with the dentist which is complimentary. At that visit the dentist will assess your teeth and gums to see if tooth whitening is suitable for you.

Impressions will then be taken for some custom made trays, these are very similar to mouth guards/gum shields but less bulky.

You will then return to the practice in 1-2 weeks and the dentist will instruct you on how to apply the gel into the trays and when to wear them.

For some patients tooth whitening is not suitable; patients that are under the age of 16, pregnant or breast feeding women, patients with decay or/and gum disease to name a few. If you have crowns or white filling in your teeth the whitening system will only change the colour of your natural teeth

Who should carry out tooth whitening

Information taken from on-line BBC News Sept 2015

“The British Dental Association (BDA) says whitening is perfectly safe if carried out by a registered dental professional. But the BDA warns anyone else won't have the right training or knowledge and could cause permanent damage to your teeth and gums..

Under the Dentists Act 1984, it's illegal for anyone other than dentists or dental health professionals such as hygienists to carry out teeth whitening. But we found dozens of beauty therapists across the UK offering the treatment”.
