Does Teeth Whitening Hurt?

The short answer is no! At Harley Teeth Whitening, the pain free process is performed by an experienced professional. Our qualified professionals use their skills and experience to make your treatment as comfortable as possible.

There are some very rare instances when clients who are prone to everyday tooth sensitivity can experience some mild sensitivity after a teeth whitening treatment. For this reason, if you have sensitive teeth then we recommended you visit your regular dentist for a dental health check up before proceeding.

All of the team at Harley Teeth Whitening have participated in a thorough training programme to ensure the highest proficiency in the cosmetic teeth whitening process. We pride ourselves on a safe, comfortable and effective pain-free service that leaves clients with whiter teeth and winning smiles. The professional clinic with a relaxed atmosphere in the heart of London is a big part of what makes our clients feel at ease. Customers are frequently singing our praises.

Is Laser Teeth Whitening Safe?

It is not uncommon for those considering a teeth whitening procedure to have concerns about safety. This is understandable considering the sensitive nature of the oral/dental area and the associated concerns regarding safety which are perfectly natural and instinctive. At Harley Teeth Whitening Clinic we can guarantee that all treatments are carried out by fully qualified dentists to facilitate the highest proficiency in the teeth whitening process. These dentists are not only qualified but also equipped with substantial experience enabling them to perform safe treatments to the highest possible standard.

To answer the question”is laser teeth whitening safe?” one must first consider the context. Of course a procedure such as this could not be regarded as safe were it to be carried out by someone unqualified or ill-experienced. The actual laser teeth whitening procedure is perfectly safe and unlikely to result in serious side effects or complications. Choosing a reputable clinic like ours ensures that the procedure will be totally safe.

We advise pregnant women to avoid laser teeth whitening even though the risk of any problems is minute. If you had your teeth whitened and did not realise you were pregnant at the time, then you need not be concerned. It is very unlikely that the chemicals used on your teeth could have any effect on your unborn child.

Those rare individuals who do experience problems after laser teeth whitening find that they are minor and temporary. Some people report that their teeth feel more sensitive after the procedure but this doesn’t last long and can be alleviated by avoiding very hot or very cold drinks for a few days. Others have reported gum irritation but this too only lasts a couple of days in most cases. 

If you are the sort of person who finds dentists intimidating and have misgivings about professional laser teeth whitening then perhaps it would be best if you met us for a free consultation. A trained dentist can discuss the procedure with you, free of charge and with no obligation to proceed. If you decide that you want to go ahead with laser teeth whitening then you can do so on the same day. You can book a free consultation and learn more about safe laser teeth whitening through this website. Having discussed the procedure in detail your mind will be put at ease and any questions you might have will be answered by our friendly and professional staff.

is teeth whitening safe in pregnancy

Is Teeth Whitening safe in Pregnancy?

Just because you’re expecting, doesn’t mean you don’t want to look your best. Even so, you should be aware of the facts before you attempt to have your teeth whitened. The British Dental Association says that it is safe to have your teeth whitened if it is done by a trained dental professional even if you are pregnant.

“There is no evidence that the whitening solution is harmful to pregnant or nursing mothers but the general advice during pregnancy is to avoid any unnecessary potential hazards.” Carmel McHenry, from the BDA, said.

In fact since 2012 it is illegal for anyone to perform a teeth whitening procedure except a registered dentist, dental hygienist or dental therapist on the prescription of a dentist. There are also laws in the UK preventing teeth whitening treatments from being carried out on women who are pregnant of breast feeding.

It is good to ask is teeth whitening safe in pregnancy although the risk is very small, because it is better to wait until afterwards for safety’s sake. If you have an urgent need to whiten your teeth during pregnancy then it is better to rely on whitening toothpastes. Toothpastes are safe to use because they’re mainly stain-reducing rather than truly whitening and do not rely on bleaching agents.

There is no evidence that teeth whitening while pregnant can harm your baby but safety legislation is put in place anyway because it is better to be safe than sorry. If you had your teeth whitened and did not realise you were pregnant at the time, then you need not be concerned. It is very unlikely that the chemicals used on your teeth could have any effect on your unborn child. Get in touch with us for a free consultation if you would like to learn more.

What does teeth whitening do to your teeth?

Teeth whitening is a simple and pain-free three step process with Harley Teeth Whitening.

Firstly, your teeth are thoroughly cleaned with an activator to prepare teeth for treatment. This removes food particles and plaque. Teeth are then coated with a bleaching agent.

Secondly, after applying a mouth guard, a high energy halogen light is shone over the teeth. This is activates the Hydrogen Peroxide molecules without overheating or damaging any part of your teeth.

Lastly, the exposure to the light source will generally last up to 15 minutes. This means that most consultations can be done in less than hour.

Can teeth whitening damage the natural enamel of my teeth?

Recent studies have proven that there is no proportionate relationship between cosmetic teeth whitening treatments and the erosion of tooth enamel. Our dentists recommend that our teeth whitening procedure is performed no more than once every 6 months.

Here’s one of our happy customers – Jenny had existing tooth sensitivity and was completely fine after our professional teeth whitening service.

‘I was quiet nervous as I suffer from sensitive teeth and gums, was not quite sure if I should whiten my teeth. At my consultation I was advised and assured that the treatment would not aggravate any sensitivity. True to their word I have not experienced any problems. The dentist was great and put my mind at ease and made a very nervous me totally relaxed. Now I have great looking teeth.’ Jenny Payne
