Teeth Whitening – Is It Worth Doing?

Teeth Whitening – Is It Worth Doing?

Many people want their discoloured teeth to look white again. For some, no matter how rigorous their oral hygiene practises are, their teeth may eventually become discoloured and look yellow. Naturally, this is a very frustrating experience. It can happen due to consuming certain foods and drinks, aging, using tobacco, and other factors that can’t be completely avoided.

If you’re thinking about getting your teeth whitened, you’re on the right track to getting the pearly white smile you’ve always wanted. Below, Dental on Clarendon has listed some of the benefits that come with professionally whitening your teeth.

Your Confidence Will Receive a Major Boost

Unfortunately, teeth can become discoloured over time regardless of how well you take care of them or how healthy they actually are. Naturally, having this discolouration be visible to others when you speak to them can be embarrassing. Undergoing teeth whitening treatment can remove those pesky stains, enhance your smile, and significantly boost your confidence and self-esteem.

Having White Teeth Keeps You Looking Young

Our bodies age, and our teeth are no different. While hair gets greyer and skin gets wrinklier, the teeth can appear more yellow, stained and discoloured, causing a person to look older than they actually are.

Many people exercise and watch what they eat to stay fit, plus they use skincare treatments to keep their skin looking healthy. Teeth whitening can be thought of as another self-care procedure you can do. Teeth whitening is one of the easiest and most affordable ways people can make their teeth look cleaner, healthier and more youthful.

No Pain or Surgery

No one wants to undergo any type of surgery, especially if it’s not essential. Some people will go to great lengths and pay a significant amount of money to maintain their good looks, but it doesn’t have to be this way when discoloured teeth are concerned. Teeth whitening is one of the quickest, cheapest and pain-free treatments available that can make you look and feel more confident. Your dentist can advise you on which type of treatment would be best suited to your needs and your budget.

Caring for your health and safety during these difficult times


Your health and safety is always our number one priority, so we are taking additional precautions while caring for you during COVID-19.

A thorough screening process is currently in place to keep patients and staff safe. With these measures in place, we can now conduct routine and emergency dental care for all new and existing patients.

Strict infection guidelines have always been adhered to in our practice, however we have introduced additional precautions, including:

  • Social distancing in the waiting room
  • Hand sanitizer provided on entry to the practice
  • Temperature testing on arrival
  • Minimal additional guests allowed. We allow patients only, with the exception of one parent to children’s appointments, or if a companion is needed to translate.
  • Pre-treatment rinsing. The rinse contains hydrogen peroxide which kills COVID-19.
  • Use of Rubber Dam where feasible
  • Increased decontamination procedures conducted throughout the day

To maintain patient safety and strict infection control measures we are constantly monitoring and modifying regular workflows.
If you have any questions, please speak to our friendly staff for more information.

Thank you for your understanding.
