Teeth Whitening at the City Dental Spa

Teeth are stained by the foods and drinks we consume. Smoking further stains teeth and the natural bright, white shade becomes darkened. Teeth whitening is a successful and simple method of lightening the colour of your teeth. The degree of whiteness achieved will vary from patient to patient and with the type of bleaching process chosen.

Here at the City Dental Spa, in line with latest European legislation (see summary below) we only use fully qualified GDC registered dentists to carry out our popular laser teeth whitening procedures at our clinic and only use the permitted compounds and mixtures in carrying out the treatment. Our dentists at the City Dental Spa have a wealth of experience and treat hundreds of patients a year for teeth whitening, producing the best results for our clients. During the treatment patients can lay back, relax and be entertained by using our special in surgery DVD glasses or listen to some soothing music.

We offer a number of teeth whitening options to our patients from our clinic. Chair-side Laser Treatment using airflow stain removal system, followed by a gel & laser light combination lasting approx.1 hour, Home Whitening or our popular Combination Packages, where you can choose a combined in-house/home treatment option to suit your needs and your pocket. The home whitening kit offers you whiter teeth from the comfort of your own home, if used weekly you will find your teeth will get brighter with regular use. If the treatments are used in conjunction with each other, optimum results will be achieved.

In order to obtain the best possible results from your teeth whitening procedure, City Dental Spa recommend that a supplementary home top-up is required for the full benefits to be achieved. This can be used in addition to your chair-side treatment for a period of 7 to 14 days (depending on the level of results you are looking for).

Changes to the EU directive 76/768/EEC concerning cosmetic products.

The change follows as an amendment to the EU Directive 76/768/EEC concerning cosmetic products. The amending Council Directive 2011/84/EU was published in September 2011 requiring the UK Government to amend the law. The Cosmetic Products (Safety) (Amendment) Regulations 2012 (The 'Regulations') amend the previous regulations relating to tooth whitening.

The law relating to tooth whitening changed on 31 October 2012. The new law increases the percentage of hydrogen peroxide allowed in tooth whitening or bleaching products to 6%, subject to conditions which include first use by a dental practitioner or under their direct supervision.

The new Regulations allow the use of hydrogen peroxide and other compounds or mixtures that release hydrogen peroxide, including carbamide peroxide and zinc peroxide to be used for tooth whitening. The maximum concen-tration that may be used for tooth whitening under the Regulations is 6% present or released. In very broad terms and as a general guide, a percentage expressed in terms of carbamide peroxide content will release one third of that level of hydrogen peroxide. Thus, the commonly used products containing 16% carbamide peroxide are permitted under the revised Regulations because they would normally be releasing less than 6% hydrogen peroxide.
