Tooth whitening from a dentist: the safe, reliable, and fast way to boost your smile

Tooth whitening is one of the most popular treatments in cosmetic dentistry, and it’s not hard to see why. At The Dental Surgery Burnham we believe that everybody deserves a smile to be proud of, and have seen many patients’ confidence transformed with the help of a course of whitening treatment.

When delivered by a dentist, tooth whitening treatment is an effective way to remove common stains, brightening up your smile and raising your self-esteem. It takes just a couple of weeks to complete, which makes it perfect preparation for a special occasion such as a family holiday, job interview or graduation. If you are interested in this treatment, join us at our Burnham clinic for a consultation.

The first thing your dentist will do is assess the nature of your tooth staining to check that tooth whitening treatment is the most appropriate option. It works on even deep-seated stains and is suitable for most people; only if you have a tooth that is permanently discoloured will you need to consider another option from our cosmetic dentistry menu, such as porcelain veneers.

At our Burnhamdental practice we have conducted extensive research into tooth whitening products, and are proud to use only the Enlighten teeth whitening brand. It is the only system that guarantees a B1 shade of whiteness – the lightest available in the UK – and is also known for being gentle on the teeth.

Enlighten tooth whitening starts with home whitening, and is completed with a final session here at our Burnhamdental practice.
