Having brighter, whiter teeth can make all the difference to your smile and wellbeing, helping you to look younger and boosting your overall confidence.
Tooth whitening, also known as ‘bleaching’, is a highly popular and effective method of lightening the natural colour of your teeth, whilst simultaneously removing everyday stains caused by diet and lifestyle, especially through habits such as smoking or drinking red wine.
There is a vast range of products available which claim to whiten teeth such as whitening toothpastes and mouthwashes. Most of these do indeed help to remove plaque and superficial surface stains, but if used alone they cannot provide effective whitening results. The only way to get effective whitening is to have professional whitening treatment under the supervision of your dentist or qualified hygienist.
The key difference is that the treatments we offer at Parmar Dental contain the whitening agent carbamide peroxide at a concentration that is not available in over-the-counter products and which can only be prescribed by a dental professional. Carbamide peroxide is totally safe and treatment is simple, effective and usually quite painless, with no unpleasant drills or injections.
At Parmar Dental your dentist will discuss all aspects of the teeth whitening process as part of your ‘Cosmetic consultation’ appointment. We believe it is important for our patients to have a full understanding of their whitening options to ensure their complete satisfaction.

Like the common cold, coronavirus infection usually occurs through close contact with a person with novel coronavirus via cough and sneezes or hand contact. A person can also be infected by touching contaminated surfaces if they do not wash their hands.
The risk of being in close contact with a person with coronavirus or contaminated surfaces is very low at the current time, as members of the public who have visited Wuhan or Hubei province, China are currently in isolation.
Testing of suspected coronavirus cases is carried out in line with strict regulations. This means that suspected cases are kept in isolation, away from public areas of the hospital and returned home also in isolation. Any equipment that come into contact with suspected cases are thoroughly cleaned as appropriate. Specific guidance has also been shared with NHS staff to help safeguard them and others. Patients can be reassured that their safety is a top priority, and are encouraged to attend all appointments as usual.
