Teeth whitening is one of our most requested cosmetic dentistry in Kent, and it’s little wonder as the results can be simply stunning. While Parrock Dental and Implant Centre encourage people to whiten safely and responsibly, we are all too aware that it’s easy to purchase extremely strong teeth whitening kits over the Internet. The problem with these kits is that they can cause a lot of damage to your teeth and gums. Their easy availability makes it all too easy to forget that teeth whitening is a dental procedure, and whitening products containing more than 0.1% peroxide cannot be sold by anyone other than a dental professionals in the UK. There’s a good reason for this, and it is to protect your oral health.

Interested in Whitening Your Teeth This Autumn? Why Not Book an Appointment?

If you’re interested in whitening your teeth then why not book an appointment to see Dr Rik Trivedi or another of our dentists in Kent? We’ll be able to tell you whether or not your teeth and gums are in good enough condition to whiten safely, and will also be able to discuss with you the type of results you can reasonably achieve. If you’re thinking about having orthodontic treatment, then it’s well worth remembering that Parrock Street offers free teeth whitening with all orthodontics in Kent that cost in excess of £400. This means you can whiten and straighten your teeth, knowing you’re doing it in a way that is most beneficial for your oral health. We provide our patients with custom-made whitening trays that are kept in place for anywhere between 20 minutes to several hours. The exact time can depend on whether or not you’re particularly sensitive towards the whitening gel, or if you have a particularly strong gag reflex.

We’ll show you exactly how to use the whitening trays, and can advise you on the types of foods to avoid while whitening. In general it’s best to stick to foods that don’t contain excessive amounts of colour, or if possible to follow an all-white diet. This might seem extreme, but you might only need to whiten your teeth for a week, and you can expect to see a considerable difference after just a few days.

You’ll find more information about teeth whitening on our website at www.parrockdental.co.uk or you can give us a call on 01474 537191 to book an appointment with one of our dentists.
