My procedure of choice was to be the advanced in-clinic dental whitening treatment performed by the lovely Kerri-Lee. It’s always worth doing your homework when it comes to any treatment on your body but I’m glad to say that Dr Kerri-Lee Clark is a fully qualified dental surgeon who has undergone further training at the London School of Facial Aesthetics in both Beginner and Advanced courses in the use of Botulinum Toxin. So she definitely knows her stuff.
The White House is located on West Annandale Street, which is a very short walk from Edinburgh Playhouse. Upon my arrival Dr Kerri-Lee was super friendly and very helpful in explaining what would happen. I also noticed how nice and clean the whole place was. I signed the consent form and was taken through to the dental chair. Kerri-Lee then talked me through the whole procedure from what shade my teeth currently were to how they would hopefully look. How the gel would feel when applied to my teeth, what the light would feel like and what it actually does, the time taken for the whole treatment etc. It was very reassuring and no question was unanswered. Dr Kerri-Lee was more than happy to help in any way she could.
Once settled in the chair with my mouth guard in, gel applied to my teeth and the light switched on, I got to sit back and relax and watch Friends on the TV. They have Netflix so can change it to any channel you want. It definitely makes time go by so quickly when you’re watching a good show. I sat in the chair for around 45 minutes. This was broken down into 15 minutes blocks with the gel applied 3 times and Kerri-Lee coming back and forth to check on me and make sure everything was ok. I feel like I have quite sensitive teeth however I felt no pain what so ever having this whitening treatment. The gel was cool to go on but quickly warmed up and the light was warm but in a nice way. I’d honestly go back and do it all again tomorrow.
When your treatment is finished you get shown how much your teeth colour has improved. I went from a shade 3 to a 1, which is the highest you can get, and was very pleased with the results. My teeth looked so much fresher, even my other half noticed an instant difference. Dr Kerri-Lee also explained the after care I needed to follow having only a white diet for 24hrs after to help maintain that brighter smile. So no curry, tea, coffee, tomato based foods, red wine or even coloured dental products. Milk, water, rice, chicken, fish, cream soups or pasta are all ok. It’s really easy to follow for only 24hrs. If you want to aid your continued teeth whitening then there are specialist toothpastes which you can buy in the clinic. I’d definitely recommend doing this as now your teeth are whiter it’ll be easier to maintain straight away.
The advanced in-clinic dental whitening treatment is currently on offer at £169 (saving you £121 off the normal price). If you’ve ever thought about having your teeth whitened then this really is the perfect time. It’s a reasonable price, the clinic is lovely and so are the staff. I really was pleased with my results and will definitely go back for top ups in future. If you do book a treatment please do tell them you found them through The Breastest News. Thank you.
