What to expect at your teeth whitening appointment
You will be given a step-by-step guide at the beginning of your teeth whitening appointment and asked to follow the simple instructions.
A shade guide is used to let you check the shade of your teeth before and after the appointment.
You will gently cleanse and scrub your teeth. At this stage, any recent surface stains are removed and the enamel is given a gentle exfoliation
A textured accelerator wipe is coated with an activation spray and you will give your teeth a brush. As well as giving the teeth a deep cleanse, this will build up a lather and foam which helps draw the gel into the pores of your enamel.
A sterile mouth guard is then removed from a sealed foil packet and non-peroxide gel is applied. You then place the mouth guard into your mouth and put on a pair of protective goggles.
Sit back, relax and let the teeth whitening gel and laser light get to work! The laser light creates an oxidation reaction which will remove stains and tooth discolouration from the inside out.
A full teeth whitening appointment consists of 3 back to back 15 minute sessions and most customers see a 3-8 shade improvement. Should you wish to have a top up to enhance your results you can book in for a top up, results do vary from person to person.
Teeth whitening products were confirmed as being cosmetics on 28th June 2001 by the House of Lords ruling in the case of Optident Limited and another V. the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry. This means that according to the teeth whitening law, this process falls under the EU Cosmetics Directive (implemented in the UK by the UK Cosmetic Products (Safety) Regulations 1996) and permits the use of products containing or releasing up to 0.1% peroxide.
In simple terms, the ruling means that dentists and non-dentists can both offer a self-service teeth whitening product with 0.1% or less Hydrogen Peroxide gel without breaking the law.
