At the Harrogate Clinic, one of our most requested treatments is Teeth Whitening. Perfectly white teeth have become the norm fuelled by the perfect smiles we see on TV and on celebrities. It is well known that having a dazzling white smile improves our self-confidence and it's not surprising that people are now routinely whitening their teeth.
At Our Practice we use Enlighten which is the best teeth whitening system available on the market, it is an in-chair dental and home-based system, but the results are incredible! whitening up to 16 shades lighter.
Unlike many other teeth whitening products you can eat and drink normally and don’t need to follow a white food diet whilst undergoing treatment, you can even keep enjoying red wine and coffee, without worrying about staining. The results are quick and long-lasting.
White Teeth Are in Fashion
It is true that Dental Bleaching is very much in fashion, however, I am sure that most people would choose to have a perfect white smile given the choice. We are seeing an increase in the number of brides coming to us to have perfectly white teeth ahead of their big day, however, we also are seeing an increase in the number of men that are choosing to have whiter teeth and are including this as part of their grooming regime which is brilliant news, as it helps with self-confidence and self-esteem and employability. A recent study has listed peoples first impressions are:-
47% noted the smile first
31% noted the eyes first
11% noted smell first
7% noted people’s clothes first
4% noted hair first
Is Tooth Whitening Safe?
One of the biggest worries of our Patients here at the Harrogate Clinic is how safe the treatment is and if it is in any way harmful to their teeth, the answer to this question is that Enlighten Teeth whitening is very safe and research shows no long term effects associated with their treatments. The ingredients in Enlighten are designed to penetrate the layers of the tooth (enamel and dentine) and brighten the tooth from the inside out. It is important that before you start to Whiten your Teeth they are fit and healthy which is why we always ensure you have an in-depth dental consultation with Dr Ghasmi before we start your Enlighten journey.
If you are considering whitening your teeth choose Enlighten as it is the gold standard in Teeth Whitening and here at the Harrogate Clinic, we are a regional centre of excellence as awarded by Enlighten Research Laboratories.
