Teeth whitening treatment errors

As well as rectifying dental problems, the professional dentist will also offer services which enhance your dental and oral presentation. In both cases, on completion of treatment the finished work must meet a satisfactory or approved standard. If you are not satisfied you can consider bringing a dental negligence claim.

What is teeth whitening?

Teeth whitening is a dental procedure which lightens the colour of the teeth and helps to remove stains and discoloration. It remains among the most popular cosmetic dental procedures because it can greatly improve how your teeth look.

What happens if treatment is administered incorrectly?

For the dentist to carry out the procedure correctly, diagnosis and treatment should both be correct and timely. The dentist, while making diagnosis should tailor the treatment to take into account tooth sensitivity and possible enamel erosion.

When would the Dentist's professional expertise be in question?

  • When there is an unacceptable delay in diagnosing tooth enamel erosion
  • Your dentist fails to diagnose chemical burns
  • The dentist delays in in treating tooth sensitivity
  • And other teeth whitening errors
