Cosmetic dentistry explored: teeth whitening in Luton

Ask anyone to name a cosmetic dentistry treatment option, and many people will reply “teeth whitening”. At Vogue Dental Care in Luton we find it easy to understand the popularity of whitening treatment. It is an efficient, reliable, fast, and safe method of improving your smile’s appearance without the need for invasive procedures – so long as you consult a fully qualified dentist.

cosmetic dentistryWhy you need a dentist

The teeth whitening treatments available at our Luton dental centre are extensively tested and regulated, and have been proven to be as safe as they are reliable and quick. It may be true that there are many other products out there that claim to whiten your teeth, but you would be best off giving them a wide berth. Mostly, these products will simply be ineffective and won’t produce the results you expect. Sometimes, however, they can contain levels of hydrogen peroxide that are higher than the legally safe limit, which can cause serious damage to your teeth and gums.

Think about it for a minute; with any other cosmetic dentistry procedure, you wouldn’t try to carry it out at home, would you? Sticking on your own veneers or trying to replace your own old metal amalgam fillings would seem ridiculous, something only seen in a terrible comedy film, with predictably terrible results. You should consider teeth whitening to be the same: as with all cosmetic dentistry, only to be carried out by a dentist.

Teeth whitening in Luton

There are three teeth whitening options available at Vogue Dental Care in Luton, and all of them begin with a cosmetic dentistry consultation. During this appointment your cosmetic dentist will assess the nature of your tooth staining to check that teeth whitening is the best option (for permanently stained or discoloured teeth, another option from our cosmetic dentistry menu, such as porcelain veneers, may be more appropriate).

Home whitening involves wearing custom-made whitening trays overnight for two weeks. We use the popular, effective NiteWhite system.

Zoom power whitening takes just an hour at our Luton clinic, whilst Enlighten Evolution whitening combines home and in-surgery treatment.
