What is teeth whitening?

Teeth whitening can be a very effective way of lightening the natural colour of your teeth without removing any of the tooth’s surface. It cannot make a complete colour change, but it may brighten the existing shade.

There are a number of reasons why you might get your teeth whitened. Everyone is different; and just as our hair and skin colour vary, so do our teeth. Very few people have brilliant-white teeth, and our teeth can also become more discoloured as we get older.

Your teeth can also be stained on the surface by food and drinks such as tea, coffee, red wine and blackcurrant. Smoking can also stain teeth. 'Calculus' or tartar can also affect the colour of your teeth. Some people may have staining under the surface, which can be caused by certain antibiotics or tiny cracks in the teeth which take up stains.

Safe Whitening

Safe Tooth Whitening treatment can deliver a brilliant, long-lasting result. Your whitening treatment will be tailored to suit your individual needs, with monitoring during and after the procedure; ensuring that any adverse side effects are minimised and the overall tooth whitening is as brilliant as you had hoped.
