Teeth whitening is becoming a popular treatment and is offered by many dental practices.
Is this treatment right for you?
It is an effective way to lighten the natural colour of your teeth, without removing any tooth surface; neither will it damage the teeth
As it follows the natural colour of your teeth, it may not turn your teeth completely white but will leave you with a natural, gleaming smile natural to you
Why use this treatment?
Many people find that as we they get older, they feel that their teeth darken; this can be due to lifestyle choices such as drinking tea or coffee, as well as smoking and the foods we eat.
Other people are unhappy with the shade or colour of teeth. White spots or marks on teeth happen as a result of illness or other factors prevalent at the time the teeth were forming and growing. These marks are permanent on the teeth and possibly, as the patient grows older, become more apparent.
Your dentist will advise you on the best tooth whitening treatment to use but rarely will shop bought treatments give the same high level of results as the methods used by trained clinicians.
Depending on how stained your teeth are, treatment can take between 2 to 4 weeks to get the final ‘look’ you want.
