Many people will have looked into brightening up their smile with various tooth-whitening treatments in London. And the appeal is obvious when simply whitening the teeth has the ability to turn back the aging clock.

And when people research dentally supervised tooth whitening or the best home whitening kits they will find that there are a lot of options available to them. We thought it would be helpful to answer some of the most commonly asked questions that are asked about teeth whitening treatments in London.

  • Why would I consider whitening treatments that are dentally supervised?

Ans: The results are a lot quicker than the results achieved with home whitening kits and are also in general, safer. Not every tooth whitening kit has been approved because all whitening kits are not the same. They can come in several different strengths and forms. It is vitally important that any kit is best suited to individual need, problem and prognosis. If the wrong kit is used damage to teeth and soft tissue can occur. Great results are unlikely unless the proper kit is used.

  • Is dentally supervised tooth whitening treatment appropriate for everyone?

Ans: It might surprise you to know that dentally supervised whitening treatments are not suitable for everyone. That’s why it is so important to have a full dental evaluation before any treatment. Some people might not be suitable if for example they have:

  • Sensitivity
  • Tooth decay
  • Excessive white spots
  • Gum infections
  • Crowns
  • Bridges
  • Dental work involving front teeth


  • What can I expect from dentally supervised tooth whitening treatments?

Ans: Typically a dentally supervised whitening treatment will make your teeth between 5 - 10 shades lighter and will take about 45 minutes. Some dentists can also supply you with high-quality home whitening kits. With a dentally dispensed take home kit you can expect a more powerful whitening treatment than you would achieve with an over-the-counter kit.

  • What is the procedure with a dentally supervised whitening treatment?

Ans: There are a few steps to the treatment to whiten your teeth that you get in the dentist’s chair. Typically an extra strength whitening treatment will be applied to your teeth. Next, you will sit under a special light for 10-15 minutes that will activate the treatment. This process can be repeated up to three times in one visit to achieve optimum results.
