This week’s topic is Tooth Whitening
Tooth whitening is a very popular treatment and there is no doubt your teeth will look lovely and white at the end of your treatment, however, there are a number of questions you should be asking your Dentist before deciding on the treatment.
With this in mind, here are a few questions you could be asking your Dentist before deciding whether you want to go ahead with tooth whitening treatment;
- What types of tooth whitening do you offer and what are the differences between them?
- What results can I expect?
- What can you do about stained veneers, crowns or dentures to make sure they match my natural teeth?
- What are the risks?
- Will it hurt?
- Who will be carrying out the procedure?
- What aftercare do you provide and who can I contact for advice after treatment?
Remember, your Dentist should assess whether you are suitable for any tooth whitening treatment. A printed estimation of treatment costs should also be given.
At our practice we occasionally offer discount on whitening treatments, so please keep an eye on our website and our facebook page for any deals, alternatively, you can email the Practice Manager (Nykky) and ask her to call or email you once there are offers available.
