Is it better to get teeth whitened by our dentist in West Byfleet?

It is in our experience that when patients look towards cosmetic dental treatments, particularly teeth whitening, aesthetic quality and speedy results is of the essence. Patients can easily achieve both by having our dentist in West Byfleet provide in-chair professional teeth-whitening treatments.

At Byfleet Dental Boutique, we know of the significant importance a sunny smile has in forming good first impressions. The smile, especially in this modern appearance-obsessed world, holds powerful sway over the perception of others. Flashing a brilliant smile makes all the difference in whether acceptance is gained, friendships formed or how successful date night is or convincing the HR manager of one’s confidence in meeting the advertised job’s responsibilities.


Our friendly dentist in West Byfleet is well-experienced in cosmetic dental treatments that are focused on enhancing smiles and allowing the patient to put their best face forward.


The dental industry has come a long way to offer interested patients options in brightening their teeth. They can either go the do-it-yourself route with products bought off-the-shelf, or they can aim for higher quality results by having our professional dentist in West Byfleet whiten their teeth. Here are some of the reasons why the latter is better.


Excellent reasons to whiten teeth at the dentist’s


Both professional teeth whitening and off-the-shelf products aim to brighten teeth, but they do so with different results. The reason for this is simple – one method has the required level of active bleaching ingredients to produce results of higher quality, while the other is bound by legal limitations.


The bleaching products used at our clinic to whiten teeth contain high levels of active bleaching ingredients as our dentist is a trained professional with the knowledge, skill and experience to use these ingredients without causing harm to the patient. Because of the risk of harm in its use by untrained hands, off-the-shelf products are not allowed to contain high amounts of these ingredients, and thus, they cannot provide the same level of brightening as that of in-chair whitening treatments.


In-chair teeth whitening at our dentist’s has another front in addition to the quality of whitening – speedy results. A dental practitioner is best placed to get desired results quicker. Whitening treatments can be customised, and other techniques can be included in the treatment plan.


Safety may not be at the top of the list for some patients, but it is nonetheless important. When unsafe methods are used to whiten teeth, this can cause much damage, and patients will be forced to consider further dental care. It is not only better but also far safer and cheaper to have a dentist whiten teeth and avoid possible harm to teeth from DIY products.


Enhancing the look of teeth can no longer be considered merely a cosmetic issue – the benefits of showing off a pleasing smile has far-reaching consequences for any individual. It may not be apparent at first, but dental, physical and mental health all rely on a smile remaining happy and healthy. If your smile needs a bit of extra loving care and you would like to know what dental treatments are available to smile a lovelier smile, then please give us a call at Byfleet Dental Boutique, and we will be happy to set up an appointment for you.
