Smiles can be one of the most influential tools that we have naturally. They can lift our spirits and give us motivation. There is a lot of strength in just a smile, which is probably why we put so much effort into making it look great. 


Professional teeth whitening is such a popular service at dentists North Wales, and those who have never been before often have lots of questions. To help put you at ease about the procedure, we have answered some of the most common questions below. 


Is teeth whitening safe?

Teeth whitening, when carried out by a professional using approved formulas, is completely safe. Your teeth will not be damaged by this treatment, and therefore you would not need to worry about any short term or long term health risks.

The teeth whitening procedure will restore your smile’s natural brightness so you can feel comfortable, beautiful and confident. 


Does teeth whitening hurt?

Teeth whitening isn’t painful at all. Lots of patients feel anxiety before having a new dental treatment, but we can assure you that this isn’t a painful process. 


Is teeth whitening permanent?

Teeth whitening will restore your teeths natural shade of white, but it won’t protect your teeth against future staining. As time goes on, you will obtain new stains due to age, diet, and other contributing factors.

Most whitening results will last from around 6 months up to 2 years. You can return for some follow up treatments. 


Is there a limit to how often you can get your teeth whitened?

Yes, your dentist can advise you on this. Applying too much gel, or too often can lead to permanent damage of the teeth. If it goes on your gums, this can also cause damage.

Consult your dentist about the safe teeth whitening treatments and applications available to you. 


Are there certain teeth whitening methods I should avoid?

There are many teeth whitening methods available today which are not safe, or are carried out by people who do not have the appropriate training.


It’s best to avoid laser whitening services that are offered through shops, as these ring alarm bells in terms of safety.


Make sure you check with the certification company that the dentist who is carrying out the procedure is trained, or at least that their certificate is from a valid company.
