New Year New You? But Does Teeth Whitening Work And Is It Safe?

Does teeth whitening work? – In this article, we look at methods of whitening teeth and describe some of the controversial views surrounding this increasingly popular cosmetic procedure. To find out more on whitening services, please visit our Teeth Whitening page. 


DIY Teeth Whitening Kits

When you search the internet for teeth whitening, you find a vast number of home use DIY kits, designed to help you brighten your smile – some may even have incredible reviews which sound amazing! The reality is that many of these self-whitening kits are shipped from overseas locations and are not adequately tested or even conform to British Standards. In fact, some are even dangerous and could leave you with long-lasting effects such as burning gums, ulcers and damaged enamel. More detailed searches online will then reveal some of these horror stories behind these cheap kits. You might be lucky but is it worth the risk?  Why gamble with your health?

Treatment by a dental professional is possible, but what does that cost? Well, it depends. Click here for teeth whitening costs at Riverside Dental, Norwich.
