AS summer and the wedding season approach, Wood Lane Dentistry in Sonning Common has had lots of enquiries from patients for tooth whitening.
What is tooth whitening?
This is the process carried out by dentists using special gels to gently and safely whiten teeth. If done properly it will effectively whiten teeth but leave the actual structure of the teeth unharmed and unaltered. There have been reports of unregulated therapists using acidic products to create a white appearance but these can cause permanent damage to the teeth and the whitening effects are only short lived. We would expect to see between eight and 10 shades improvement following treatment (see photos).
At Wood Lane Dentistry they have used an American system called Zoom whitening for nearly 10 years now. It is a well-established system from a reputable company.
