Beautician Whitening VS Dental Whitening

How to Choose a Dental Whitening System

Carousel Image

They say you’re never fully dressed without a smile and sometimes simple things like having whiter teeth can dramatically change your self-image. Teeth whitening is a treatment designed to transform your teeth from being yellow and stained to having a whiter, brighter smile, giving you that self-confidence you’ve always wished for. Improvement in your self-image shows that not only will you notice the change in yourself but others will notice too, so it is not surprising to know that the first thing people take care of is their teeth.


So I have decided I want my teeth whiter, but what is the process of teeth whitening? And what are the final results like?


What Is Teeth Whitening?

Teeth whitening is a treatment that involves lightening the shade of your natural teeth. This process is carried out by making custom made trays, designed to fit your teeth. Your dentist will provide you with a special hydrogen peroxide gel (in syringe form) and will demonstrate how and when to carefully use them along with the trays provided.

When Should I Start Seeing Results?

Everyone is different. Usually, it takes a minimum of 10-14 days for you to get the full effect, however you should see a difference in colour after a few days. During your whitening appointment, your dentist should record the shade of your teeth before you start treatment. After a few weeks, you should visit your dentist for a review appointment, to record your tooth colour again and compare.

Once your teeth have been whitened, it is important that you continue to look after them properly to prevent them from becoming discoloured or stained. If your teeth do start to become stained again, you can purchase the top up whitening syringes from your dentist. It is a legal requirement for your dentist to book you in for a review appointment before any syringes are prescribed.

I have seen a beauty spa who offers teeth whitening for half the price, so why should I choose a dentist?

The combinations of peroxides we use are far stronger to anything you will find in a beauty spa or on the high street. state that it is not legal for anyone other than a dentist (or dental hygienist or dental therapist working to prescription of a dentist) to carry out tooth whitening. If other professionals choose to use these percentages, they will leave themselves liable to prosecution. It is very important that you visit an experienced dentist for teeth whitening as they need to assess the health of your teeth and gums to decide whether teeth whitening is suitable for you. If done wrongly, teeth whitening can permanently damage your teeth, gums and lips. Click story for a recent story (BBC news 20/09/2015)

I have had a fantastic experience with Ferry Dental.I approached them as an anxious patient (having not been to the dentist for nearly a decade) and the staff were so friendly and calming. Despite having a big cry before my first appointment my consultation was fantastic and I left feeling much more comfortable with the prospect of going to the dentist.Since then I’ve had many appointments with Marwa (orthodontist) and the hygienist and no longer dread or cry before appointments. Marwa in particular is so kind and friendly and always checks in with me throughout appointments to make sure I’m calm and happy.All the staff have been so friendly and know who I am and have been fully informed of my anxiety. It’s been very relieving to go from appointment to appointment and each practitioner knows exactly who I am, what I’ve had done, and really look after me as an individual.Also a massive shout out to the reception team (particularly Anna) who are always so so friendly and greet me by name and know who I am.I highly recommend this dentist - particularly those who hate going to the dentist and/or suffer from anxiety. A massive thank you to Ferry Dental for helping me get over my fear of the dentist ❤️

I had a great experience at Ferry Dental Centre. The staff was very friendly and professional, and the facility was clean and modern. Dr Denis took the time to explain everything to me and I felt very comfortable throughout my visit. I will definitely be recommending Ferry Dental Centre to my friends and family.
