If you are considering teeth whitening, please read this blog.


Tooth whitening is a simple and effective cosmetic dental treatment, but there has been some confusion about tooth whitening as a dental treatment. Some providers out there have no dental training at all, but the law clearly states that tooth whitening must be carried out by a dental professional.

It may look to some, as if this is an attempt by the dental profession to ring-fence their business, but this could not be further from the truth. Dentists have a responsibility and duty of care for your oral health. An untrained provider is likely to miss any contra indications surrounding that persons suitability for the procedure, other dental health factors such as tooth decay and gum disease, also play a part.If you want pain, try having tooth whitening around unhealthy and inflamed gums!

At Bancroft Dentistry in Hitchin, Hertfordshire we use the market leader, and highly respected Enlighten tooth whitening system, which provides the very best result possible.

The General Dental Council provides some excellent guidance on how to choose tooth whitening. A link is below;
