WHAT IS TEETH WHITENING?
Teeth whitening is one of the easiest ways to improve the appearance of your smile. Whiter teeth can boost your confidence and self-esteem. This is something that we’re more than happy to offer at our specialist facility for dental care in London.
Teeth are porous and over the years will tend to accumulate colouration and pigments from food, drinks and smoking etc. As a result, our teeth will tend to get darker in shading as time goes by. Modern tooth-whitening techniques involve using mild, pH-neutral peroxide gels to liberate the stain and pigment molecules from the enamel and dentine of the teeth to give them a rejuvenated, whiter appearance. Most people’s teeth will benefit from tooth whitening. It is a time-proven, safe, simple and effective way to brighten stained or discoloured teeth and give your smile a lift.

Frequently Asked Questions
What is the most effective way to whiten teeth?
Tooth whitening has grown in popularity year on year, and now you can even get your hands on cheap tooth whitening kits online. However, we can’t stress enough how harmful some cheaper whitening kits can be. Wherever possible, we would always advise that you receive professional teeth whitening by a dentist done in a purpose-built clinic.
Is it safe to whiten teeth at home?
In some cases, yes. Many dentists offer whitening kits that have been curated to suit your specific demands, that you can do yourself from the comfort of your own home. However, there are also a range of untrustworthy sellers of tooth whitening kits, so it’s important to do your research before using any type of treatment yourself.
Prolonged use of tooth whitening chemicals can cause your tooth’s enamel to weaken and can cause extreme sensitivity – so it is always best to visit a dentist for your treatment. That way you can better control how regularly you receive treatments for a gradually brighter smile.
Can yellow teeth become white?
We have been offering professional teeth whitening for several years, and in that time we’ve improved the appearance of a range of smiles. If you’re concerned that your discolouration is too severe, or that your teeth are “too far gone” for whitening – we encourage you to get in touch with our team.
We’re confident that we can offer the teeth whitening results you’re looking for, but if teeth whitening is ever unsuitable, we can discuss other solutions available.
Does tooth whitening hurt?
If you receive professional teeth whitening such as the sort that we offer here at Finsbury Dental, then you should never feel any pain or discomfort during the process. You may feel extra sensitivity, especially if you had sensitive teeth to begin, however any sensitivity should be short-lived. If you feel you’re struggling with sensitive teeth then you can speak with our dentists who can help.
