Teeth Whitening is one of the most popular treatments done here at Indigo Dental.
You may be wondering why, and the answer is simple.
It can give you a fantastic improvement to your smile, without any injections, drills, damage to your teeth, and is really straight forward to do.
But what if your teeth whitening caused excruciating pain, swelling, blistering on your gums and long term dangerous effects, would you consider it then?
In February 2020, BBC News reported the incidence of illegal teeth whitening to have jumped up by 26%. The broadcaster found that in 2019, 732 cases of illegal teeth-whitening procedures were reported to the General Dental Council.
According to the General Dental Council, the practise of teeth-whitening “can only safely and legally be offered by registered dental professionals”.
The safest way to have your teeth whitened is to discuss it with your dentist on your next visit.
Here at Indigo Dental, we will always take photographs, any relevant x-rays, measure your starting shade and take a digital scan, prior to creating a customised teeth whitening plan for you.
We have different teeth whitening options depending in your lifestyle, and what kind of shade change you are looking for. We provide all the information and instructions you need, and will always arrange a review of your results, so that we can ensure you have achieved the results you are looking for.
