The sun is coming out, holidays are booked and wedding season will soon be in full swing… Which usually means more time in front of the camera. Luckily, 543 Dental Centre has the key to the perfect selfie-ready smile. Our professional teeth whitening treatments make it quick and easy to transform your teeth, performed either at the practice or in the comfort of your own home.

What are the benefits of professional whitening?

A brighter smile can rejuvenate your appearance, restore your youthful glow and boost your confidence – ensuring you look and feel your best for special occasions. However, tooth whitening isn’t just an investment in your appearance and self-esteem. The removal of stains and discolouration can lead to stronger and healthier teeth in the long run.

Professional teeth whitening treatments performed by a dentist or hygienist are fast and effective, lightening teeth by up to eight shades in one hour – although results can vary. As wedding season and summer holidays approach, this is the easiest and safest way to achieve a set of pearly whites that you’ll be proud of.

How does teeth whitening work?

If you’re now wondering where can I get professional teeth whitening near me? At 543 Dental Centre, we offer a choice of in-practice or at-home whitening treatments to suit your lifestyle. Both guaranteed to reduce staining and brighten smiles!

Quick results with Zoom teeth whitening

Our Zoom whitening treatment is one of the quickest and easiest ways to achieve a bright, white smile. It’s also our recommended method of teeth whitening for sensitive teeth.

The process takes just 90 minutes and involves a clinician applying light-activated whitening gel onto your teeth. We will be careful to avoid your gums and prevent any unnecessary sensitivity or damage. A blue light is then used to activate the gel, lightening your teeth in short 15-minute bursts, leading to visibly whiter teeth in 90 minutes.

Professional teeth whitening at home

Our professionally prescribed home whitening treatment allows you to transform your smile in the comfort of your own home and in your own time.

This treatment option requires a short consultation at the practice, during which you will be prescribed a suitable course of whitening treatment, a bespoke set of whitening trays for you to take home, and a demonstration of how to properly apply the professional teeth whitening gel.

Treatment takes around two weeks. Just fill your trays with the prescription whitening gel and wear them for a short amount of time each day or overnight.

Why is teeth whitening best done by a dental professional?

With so many teeth whitening strips, toothpastes and DIY trays available over the counter and online, not many people know that professional teeth whitening from a dental practice is the only legal way to effectively whiten your smile.

Products that are available to purchase at your local pharmacy might be safe to use at home, but they don’t actually contain enough whitening agent to change the appearance of your teeth.

The internet is also full of quick-fix products that promise to provide dentist-worthy results. However, this space is largely unregulated and many products contain dangerous amounts of hydrogen peroxide that can cause long-term damage to your teeth and gums. For more information on the dangers of dental products bought online, take a look at our recent blog about clear aligners.

Although some beauticians claim to offer whitening treatments, it’s important to remember that only dental professionals registered with the General Dental Council (GDC) can legally whiten your teeth or prescribe treatments for you to use at home.

Teeth aren’t something that you should take for granted, and poor dental health can lead to a slew of other health conditions later in life. That’s why the safest way to whiten your teeth is with a visit to your local dental practice.
