Teeth discolor for various reasons such as staining from food substances and liquids such as tea and coffee, following root canal treatment and with age.
Tooth whitening can be a highly effective, yet a very simple way of lightening the color of your teeth and ‘freshening up’ your smile without causing any irreversible damage to the tooth surface. It does not change the color of the teeth but it does make them lighter and this successfully gives the appearance of a bright, white, beautiful smile. It involves the use of chemicals to oxidize and remove the color compounds within the teeth.
Tooth whitening is a safe procedure when carried out under professional supervision. Treatment results usually depend on the severity of the discoloration and may take several visits to complete. The final result is very stable but it usually requires periodic ‘top-ups’ in order to be maintained and we provide you with the gel for this.
