How Does Professional Teeth Whitening Work?

Written by Luke Whitaker

Whitening your teeth at home is never going to be as safe as having it done professionally, not to mention that the results may never match those that our experienced clinicians can achieve. But what exactly can you expect when you choose to book in for teeth whitening our Exeter based dental practice?

To begin with, a full clean of your mouth with one of our hygienists will be advised if necessary, ensuring removal of any plaque, tartar or superficial staining from your teeth and gums. Any cavities can also be found and filled, prior to whitening treatment. This gives our dentists a clean slate to begin with.

When it comes to the day of your whitening treatment our dentist will ensure that any treatment doesn’t damage your teeth or gums. A higher dosage of whitening gel will be used by your dentist than many at home teeth
whitening kits, this poses a risk in that there is only a certain timeframe that you should be leaving the gel on your teeth; which is why it is highly advisable to use one of our experienced clinicians for this treatment.
