Teeth Whitening in the Brighton, Hove, Peacehaven and East Sussex area
Teeth whitening has a long history and has evolved into one of the most popular aesthetic dental treatments available. From “chew sticks” made from twigs dating back to 3000 B.C. to today’s use of various forms of peroxide to safely whiten teeth, the quest for “pearly whites” threads throughout the history of oral health.
The science has come far. Today, in one brief, light-accelerated treatment of Philips Zoom, patients will enjoy immediate results, and it’s entirely worry-free. Years of extensive research and clinical studies confirm that teeth whitening under the supervision of a dental professional is safe. In fact, many dental professionals consider teeth whitening the safest cosmetic procedure available.
Almost anyone can benefit from teeth whitening. Of course, there are many reasons for discolouration and not everyone will experience the same results. That’s why it’s important to involve a dental professional. There are many factors that play into what kind of whitening is right for you, and a dental professional will help you get the best results possible.
There are three common categories of teeth whitening:
Professionally Applied Teeth Whitening:
Any whitening procedure performed within a dental office, under the direction and care of a dental professional, such as Philips Zoom White Speed.
Professionally Prescribed Whitening:
Any whitening material dispensed by a dental professional for a patient to use at home either as their main whitening treatment or for maintenance after an in-office whitening treatment, such as Philips Zoom NiteWhite and DayWhite.
Over the Counter:
Any whitening material available to purchase for home use without seeing a dental professional, such as those available at drugstores and supermarkets, which include whitening toothpaste, rinses, gels, and strips.
