Current Tooth Whitening Techniques with Wyman Chan

Posted on 30-Jan-2011

Wyman has become one of the biggest names in the field of UK tooth whitening. After forming the Smile Studio in London – the first dedicated tooth-whitening specialist centre in the UK – in 2002, the network of Smile Studio outlets has stretched to major cities such as Glasgow, Manchester, Birmingham, Newcastle, Liverpool and Bristol. Wyman has been at the forefront of the growing rise in popularity of tooth whitening over the last decade, holding five British patents in the field (with several more pending) and constantly updating his techniques and products through innovative research and development.
Through his research he developed and patented the ‘Wy10 Whitening System', a pain-free technique that eclipsed conventional methods of teeth whitening based on the theory that cumbersome, intrusive lasers were needed to help penetrate the tooth's enamel.


His success has led to him earning a 'dentist to the stars' reputation, and several famous celebrities are said to have made the trip to the Smile Studio's spa-like setting in Shaftesbury Avenue for the Wy10 treatment, including Cheryl Cole.


Wyman is much published, lectures internationally and runs monthly hands-on power whitening seminars in London.
