An introduction to teeth whitening

An introduction to teeth whiteningTeeth whitening is a cosmetic procedure that is growing in popularity in Ireland. As its name suggests, it involves a variety of processes performed by dental professionals in order to lighten the colour of a patient’s teeth as well as to remove the stains.

The process of tooth whitening is often said to be one of Ireland’s imports from the United States across the Atlantic. Many dental experts have even taken to calling the teeth bleaching process as an Americanised practice of keeping a white and sparkly smile.


Why teeth whitening is popular

Why would anyone not want a white and sparkly smile? Many people, not just in Ireland but also all over the world, willingly go through the teeth whitening process for many reasons.

The main reason as to why people would want to undergo tooth whitening is that having a set of sparkling white teeth can boost a person’s self-confidence dramatically. It also makes them attractive to other people, since there are many people out there who tend to judge someone’s personality based on the brightness of their smile.

Having a bright smile can also be helpful when it comes to building careers. Employers hire candidates for a job based not just on skills and abilities but also on the candidates’ appearance. A career person who gets to meet clients most of the time as part of his or her job may benefit greatly from having a bright smile that only a tooth whitening procedure can bring.


How teeth whitening works

There are many ways by which teeth whitening is done. The simplest tooth whitening practice involves the use of whitening toothpastes, while the most radical ones require internal tooth bleaching or the exposure of the teeth to laser whitening.

Here are the White House we use whitening gel in conjunction with the advanced laser light accelerator to remove stains that have built up in just 35 minutes.


Is teeth whitening safe?

As much as teeth whitening has become a popular cosmetic procedure here in Ireland, there are still people who wonder on how safe it is. The answer is that teeth whitening is very much safe as we employ only the safest and most clinically advanced laser technology.

However, pregnant women are advised not to go through the procedure until they have delivered and after they are done breastfeeding.
