Our one hour teeth whitening treatment is really popular! Leave our Ipswich practice with a beautiful, brighter smile….
If you have, you are not alone and certainly not the first.
Whiter teeth have been treasured throughout the ages and maybe surprsingly, various attempts at whitening teeth have been carried out in the past.
Amongst those attempting whitening treatments were the ancient Greeks (a mix of white wine vinegar and pumice stone), the ancient Romans (human urine!!!!) and some barbers in the 18th century attempted to whiten teeth using acid. As well as some of these being pretty revolting, even if they did whiten the teeth a little, serious harm was likely to have resulted due to the acids used eroding the surface enamel.
In the 21st Century, these are no longer used, although some teeth whitening toothpastes do use additional abrasives (a little similar to the ancient Greeks!) This can only remove surface staining though and not any internal discolouration and can still cause harm to the enamel on our teeth.
How can the Foxhall Dental Practice help?
Our experienced Ipswich dental team are able to help patients who wish to have whiter looking teeth, not only safely, but in a very short space of time too. Our fast acting treatment means that you don’t have to sit at home wearing a tray for a few hours a day for a couple of weeks. Both at home and in-house treatments are equally effective and safe (if used correctly) but our in-house treatment offers the opportunity to have whiter teeth in just a single hour.
