IS TEETH WHITENING SAFE?
Dr Mervyn Druian is one of the founding members and current secretary of the British Dental Bleaching Society (BDBS).
This is a group of dentists who are lobbying for stricter guidelines, so only dental professionals can perform a tooth whitening treatment.
Find out about teeth whitening.
Our advice to you is always go to a dental professional if you are going to have your teeth whitened.
To our knowledge, no evidence has ever been documented where a tooth whitening (from a dental professional) has damaged teeth.
Recent research of the Nu Radiance Duet whitening system has shown that there are no changes to the tooth surface from this treatment.
We have come across no literature showing any structural changes or irreversible damage to the tooth structure.
Dental bleaching has been undertaken safely for the past 60 years.
HOW LONG WILL MY WHITER, BRIGHTER SMILE LAST?
The colour will remain stable for approximately two years or more.
Once again, this is down to your home care.
If you are smoker or have a tendency to eat and drink heavily coloured foods, your whitening results won’t last as long.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO GET MY TEETH WHITENED?
Usually one appointment of one hour is all that’s needed. Click here to see if you are suitable.
A further appointment may be required but only in exceptional cases.
HOW CAN I GET STRAIGHTER TEETH?
Veneers are the perfect choice for those who want to correct slightly crooked teeth or to close gaps between the teeth.
You could be leaving our clinic with a brand new smile from only £50 pcm* with our special finance packages.
If your teeth are more crooked and / or you need to correct your bite, then invisible braces like Invisalign are the answer.
For straight teeth in as little as a couple of months, Dr Mervyn Druian recommends Invisalign.

HOW OFTEN SHOULD I VISIT THE DENTIST?
We are strong believers in preventative treatment.
We recommend that everyone has a check up at least once a year and a minimum of three trips a year to your hygienist.
Not only are we concerned about the health of your gums and teeth, but dentists are trained to spot oral cancer signs, which if caught early, has a 90% success rate.
We offer general dentistry treatments. See what’s available.
I HAVEN’T BEEN TO THE DENTIST FOR YEARS AS I’M TOO NERVOUS, WHAT SHOULD I DO?

However, nowadays there are lots of anxiety busting treatments available and here at The London Centre for Cosmetic Dentistry.
