Friday, May 27th, 2016
Unfortunately, teeth can become stained and discoloured due to a variety of reasons. Sometimes your teeth will become discoloured simply due to ageing. However, lifestyle and food choices can also take their toll on your pearly whites. Luckily you don’t need to put up with stained teeth and a highly effective, affordable and pain-free solution is to visit your local Brite practice to have your teeth professionally whitened. From whitening strips to whitening toothpaste there’s a wide range of ways to get your teeth brighter. Here’s how to choose a safe method that is effective and won’t harm your teeth.
Teeth whitening is a dental treatment that lightens your teeth and helps to remove stains and discolouration. It is one of the most popular dental cosmetic procedures because your teeth can have such a huge impact on your overall appearance. It is the process of restoring the natural tooth colour shade or making the teeth whiter than the natural colour shade.
To give your smile a quick, effective mini-makeover pop into your local Brite where our dental clinician performs in-house whitening on you by placing a protective barrier between your teeth and your gums. The teeth whitening gel is then applied to your teeth and the gel is stimulated with a blue light that is on the teeth for ten minutes. The gel is then washed off and this step is repeated twice. This safe in house procedure allows our dentists to whiten your teeth within the hour, meaning you can leave your local Brite with a glistening smile. To help maintain this or if you would simply prefer to whiten your teeth in your own home. Our dental team can offer you safe and effective teeth whitening kits which include bespoke whitening trays and professional teeth whitening gels.

There is no need for you to smile with a closed mouth any more because your brighter and healthier smile will give you a shot of self- confidence.

Legalities Of Teeth Whitening
Thursday, March 19th, 2015
Are you looking for the most effective teeth whitening treatment? Would you like to whiten your smile in the safest way possible? Did you know that not all teeth whitening products and treatments are legal and may damage your teeth?
Many people still believe that teeth whitening treatments can be carried out at a beauty salon or at home by a beautician. Also, unscrupulous traders have been selling expensive tooth whitening equipment and courses to people in the beauty industry while making them believe that the process is legal.
It is not legal for anyone other than a dentist or prescription dental therapist/hygienist to carry out tooth whitening. These dental professionals will have undergone training for many years in order to understand the structures of the mouth and to recognize dental problems so they are able to prescribe the correct treatment for their patients.
The incorrect use of the teeth whitening chemicals can permanently damage teeth and gums as these chemicals actually sink into the tooth surface. Therefore, the person providing the treatment must be fully dentally qualified and registered with the General Dental Council (GDC) to protect the public against this type of damage.
A recent court case highlighted the fact that tooth whitening had been decided by a High Court judge, to be an ‘act of dentistry’. So even if the amount of hydrogen peroxide being used is below the legal limit or if the product being used does not release hydrogen peroxide, a non-qualified person will be breaking the law and putting their clients at risk by providing the treatment.
All of the tooth whitening products used by dental professionals are safe, tested and proven to be non-harmful to teeth or gums. In addition, the British Association of Beauty Therapy and Cosmetology (BABTAC) states that it will not provide insurance for tooth whitening as there isn’t a recognized qualification for these kind of treatments. It is also highly unlikely that any other insurance company would cover anyone for a treatment that has been proven to be illegal in the High Court.
