Dental practice at 40 Harley Street, Central London
Teeth whitening can make teeth several shades lighter for a brighter smile. Legally, this procedure can only be performed by a dentist or dental professional such as a hygienist. At 40 Harley Street in London, we provide two types of teeth whitening – in-chair whitening and at-home whitening.
- For at-home whitening, impressions are taken of your teeth in order to make custom-built clear plastic trays that fit closely to your teeth. A whitening gel is used in the trays either overnight or for a few hours a day. This will gradually lighten the colour of the teeth over a period of approximately 10 days.
- For in-chair whitening, we use Philips Zoom WhiteSpeed. This kind of whitening is especially effective if you have deep discoloration, maybe from years of smoking, drinking wine and coffee, or taking certain types of medication.
- Philips Zoom WhiteSpeed can lighten your teeth by up to 6 shades.
To enhance results of in-chair teeth whitening further still, the treatment can be used in combination with home whitening trays. Using the treatments together in this way can help to achieve longer- lasting results.
