With the holidays just around the corner, a brighter smile is on many people’s wish lists, but choosing the right method is important.

Natural home remedies such as oil pulling or brushing your teeth with baking soda or strawberries will do very little to brighten your smile. There are plenty of over-the-counter products to choose from, and while their sale is tightly regulated, so they are safe to use, they may not achieve the results you desire.

The most effective option is a professional teeth whitening treatment. Unlike over-the-counter products, our dentists can use high-quality professional strength products, achieving excellent results safely. Before recommending this procedure, we examine your teeth carefully to ensure treatment is appropriate and will achieve the desired results.

There are two ways we can brighten your smile, and the first is to have a chairside whitening treatment that takes a little over an hour to lift the colour of your teeth by several shades. The second option is a take-home whitening kit for use in the comfort of your own home, where we prescribe professional strength whitening gel that is safe for home use and which takes a couple of weeks to get the desired results. So if you fancy a brighter, whiter smile in time for Christmas, contact us now to book an appointment.
