Teeth Whitening by the Dentist & Benefits

There are several benefits to seeing a dentist for teeth whitening, as opposed to using over the counter whitening products or attempting to whiten your teeth at home. Here are some of the key benefits:

  1. Customised treatment: A dentist can customise the teeth whitening treatment to your specific needs, taking into account factors such as the severity of discolouration, the sensitivity of your teeth, and any existing dental restorations you may have.

  2. Professional-grade products: Dentists use professional-grade whitening products that are stronger and more effective than those available over the counter. This means you can achieve better and longer-lasting results with a dental treatment.

  3. Safe treatment: Teeth whitening can cause sensitivity or damage to your teeth and gums if not done properly. A dentist will ensure that your teeth and gums are healthy enough for whitening and use techniques to minimize any potential side effects.

  4. Monitoring: A dentist will monitor the progress of your treatment and adjust the treatment as necessary to ensure you achieve the desired results without harming your teeth.

  5. Faster results: Professional teeth whitening treatments typically produce results much faster than at-home treatments, often within just one or two appointments.

  6. Improved oral health: Seeing a dentist for teeth whitening can also help improve your overall oral health, as it may encourage you to maintain better oral hygiene habits and schedule regular dental check-ups.

Overall, seeing a dentist for teeth whitening can provide a safer, more effective, and customised approach to achieving a brighter, whiter smile.

‘I’m a very nervous emotional person when it comes to visiting the dentist, having been with my previous one for years, I decided to go to Highfield on the recommendation of my husband. When I made contact for my first appointment I explained to the receptionist my fears, she was so kind, helpful and understanding and recommended Pinal Patel who would be perfect for me. I went along for my first appointment very anxious but as soon as I walked in the receptionists were so friendly they soon put me at ease.

I have now gone back for my second appointment and I can’t thank Pinal Patel enough for being so patience with me and for making sure that throughout my procedure I was ok and not in any pain. He is so kind, understanding, gentle, considerate and very professional.

I would definitely recommend Highfield Dental Practice to all.’

”Dr Uzma Patel,
After going through jaw surgery and having braces I still wanted a few changes to my two teeth that were shorter then others.
Uzma has done an incredible job and I would highly recommend anyone who is wanting Composite Bonding. We went over all the small changes to make it perfect for my individual smile.
Always checking how I was feeling and it really is pain free. I will definitely be going back if I need anything else done. Thank you again for all your time. ”

”Dear Biruntha,
Thanks for a very careful and painstaking reconstruction this morning… you have achieved a perfect likeness to the original as far as my tongue is concerned,  and it is perfectly profiled to fit with its mates on my upper jaw….I would never have suspected I had had dental work done today.
Looks good in the mirror, too!”
