Emma visits the salon at least once a month for teeth whitening service, Teeth whitening is one of the easiest and most cost effective procedures you can undergo to improve your appearance. It is not painful (aside from sensitivity, in some cases, which can last 24 hours) and will not harm your teeth or gums. Nearly everybody with good general and dental health is suitable for teeth whitening. Everyone wants beautiful white teeth and laser whitening can lighten teeth between five to twelve shades. The effect of the treatment lasts for up to three years, depending on your lifestyle, and the cost of the treatment includes a take home kit worth £55 to enable you to get your teeth to their optimum level of whiteness and maintain your new whiter smile.
Treatment begins with a medical and consent form being filled out. If
both the clinician and the client are happy to go ahead the process can
begin. This involves applying a barrier to the gums to protect them before
applying 3-4 applications of whitening gel. Each application is ‘lasered’
for ten minutes before being suctioned off and the next being applied.
(Please be aware this is not a laser, it is a blue light, and is used to speed
up the whitening process). The whole treatment takes roughly an hour.
It is important to understand that our clinician is NOT a dentist or
dental nurse but a technician who specializes in the cosmetic practice of
teeth whitening. Arcana Group Of Salons have worked with Teethwhite

The effect of most whitening treatments will last for at least 6 months. Depending on lifestyle, it could last for up to 2 years. Teethwhite’s home maintenance kits contain enough whitening gel to last most users 15 months (if used as directed). Around 50% of the gel contained in each kit will allow users to reach the desired level of whiteness and this usually occurs within the first two weeks. The other 50% is available for top up applications to maintain the whiteness. Individual characteristics and lifestyles will determine the required frequency of top up applications although Teethwhite has found that wearing the mouthpiece overnight once a month is enough.
