Teeth whitening the safe and effective way.

At Hello Dental Colchester we don’t just focus on cosmetic improvement of whiter teeth but also making a health improvement.

We have tried many different professional teeth whitening gels on the market. We not only tested them in real life situations but also looking at the research to ensure the system is safe, quick and makes a health contribution.

Our unique protocol of tray design, technique of use and the products we use deliver the teeth whitening results our patients want safely effectively and quickly.

This combination of teeth whitening products with our tried and tested system not only provide whiter teeth, but actually help the enamel become more resistant to acid attack and decay, increase shine and improve luster; also teeth remain whiter for longer with much reduced sensitivity.

Professional Teeth whitening at Hello Dental Colchester is hands down the safest, quickest and most cost effective way to make a big improvement to your smile. Many people have naturally stained teeth or eating stained food and drink have caused them to discolour gradually over the years.

Our protocol means we are even able to manage many difficult cases, some who have tried teeth whitening with poor results in the past. At our free consultation we are honest and upfront about how white your teeth will go and we do not make nonsense claims like “20 shades whiter”.

Teeth whitening done at Hello Dental Colchester can not only reverse the stain but can actually improve the health of the teeth using new biologically friendly molecules integrated into the tooth whitening gel.

Our gels supplied directly from leading manufacturer Phillips Zoom, have a molecule called ACP incorporated into the gel which has been shown in lab tests to protect enamel, improve luster and shine and also increase resistance to decay when used regularly.

We know that some people need more support once the teeth whitening kits are supplied, so we offer unlimited after care support to ensure you get the result you want in the quickest and most comfortable way possible.

Other teeth whitening gels we use have a patented technology of nano-hydroxyapatite in the gel which is an ultra-miniaturised form of the same mineral teeth are made of. This means they can penetrate the enamel and dentine of teeth and repair minor defects and sensitivity leaving the teeth stronger. We use these for a chairside boost in a deep bleaching protocol to get teeth as white as possible.

Again our aim is to not only whiten teeth but use the best teeth whitening gels to improve the ability of the teeth to withstand decay and wear.

The cost of our advanced tooth whitening at Hello Dental Colchester is just £249 for both your upper and lower teeth for our at home tray systems using Phillips zoom whitening.

This is excellent value and a great investment for a whiter smile with outstanding after care advice as needed included in the price.

The truth about DIY teeth whitening kits and Beauty Salon tooth whitening..

As teeth whitening has become more popular worldwide it has attracted many scams and fake products.

Our mouths are full of bacteria and stringent hygiene standards and regulation by the Care Quality Commission and the General Dental Council have to be adhered to by providers of teeth whitening not only in Colchester but across the UK

In recent months the healthcare regulator GDC have prosecuted beauty salons and “teeth whitening” companies that do whitening outside a dental practice environment (see here). There are very good reasons for this, as these premises will often not have the equipment to properly disinfect and sterilise after each client. Under EU law the person prescribing the whitening must be a dentist to properly assess and prevent any potential problems. Read more about safe tooth whitening here.

A change of gloves and using disposable items is not enough to prevent spreading other peoples bacteria, viruses and disease into your mouth!

The second issue is that many of gels sold online are branded and appear to be from big brand teeth whitening companies. Many are in essence fakes made in non-sterile conditions many from China. Much like fake perfumes and handbags the trade is booming and the fakes are good enough that it is difficult to tell the gel apart from the real thing. Even dentist’s who try to source these cheap gels from budget suppliers have been caught out. We only source directly from manufacturers.

The internet is full of these fakes sold at a third of the price of genuine gels. In the best case scenario the gels will do nothing. Worst case scenario they will appear to whiten your teeth by gradually dissolving and damaging the enamel and burning your gums. It is difficult to see the damage done in the first few years by these gels even for a dentist. It takes several years for the damage to become evident. Unfortunately once the damage is done its irreversible and can require extensive repair to prevent teeth breaking and chipping.

Repairing even minor damage could cost many hundreds of pounds and its simply false economy.

We all love a bargain but please do not gamble with the health of your teeth!
