“Too much whitening could turn your teeth to mush!”

That was the eye-catching headline, which appeared in daily newspapers recently and it confirms what we at Carisbrook Dental have been warning about for a long time. If you want to improve the whiteness of your teeth and your smile … speak to your dentist.

A leading Los Angeles based cosmetic dentist, Laurence Rifkin, has stated that over-bleaching is an all too common practice; one that causes severe and permanent damage by stripping tooth enamel and causing gums to recede. As Mr Rifkin emphasized: “Once the enamel has been chemically eroded away, then it is gone. It’s gone forever!”

There are other important reasons why you should only trust your dentist to whiten your teeth. One is that cheap over the counter teeth whitening kits can be potentially dangerous. Another is that recent legislation has made it illegal for anyone other than a qualified dentist to administer teeth whitening treatment.

At Carisbrook Dental all our dentists are highly qualified and are fully experienced in the latest teeth whitening treatments. Firstly they will provide a professional diagnosis. That means examining your teeth to determine why they may be discoloured. Is it genetic? Or is it caused by your lifestyle?

Only then, when the cause is known, can your dentist recommend the correct treatment. At Carisbrook we can offer a number of different options:

For simple surface stains.

These peripheral stains can usually be quickly removed by our Airflow machine, which swiftly cleans and freshens the teeth leaving them with a much whiter appearance.

For lifestyle or genetically discoloured teeth

We may recommend a home whitening treatment course, or one of our in-clinic treatments that include laser whitening using our Zoom machine or the very latest ‘Enlighten’ technology – the revolutionary new teeth whitening treatment from the USA. Probably the most advanced teeth whitening process there is. Take a look at our Teeth Whitening page to read more about the various options that we offer.

Remember, if teeth whitening is not performed by a qualified dentist it is not legal, it will not be regulated and the chances are that if anything does go wrong … they will not be insured.
