Teeth whitening can be a simple and safe way to refresh your smile. Whitening is one of the most popular cosmetic dental procedures and the results can be quite dramatic.
Teeth whitening uses safe chemicals such as peroxide to draw out the stains within your enamel, and gradually whiten your teeth. The procedures are well-documented, safe to perform and effective. Using a home whitening kit recommended by our dentists, your teeth can be transformed to up to 8 shades whiter, and staying that way for many months.
Everyone can benefit from some teeth whitening. However prior to teeth whitening, a thorough dental examination is the best way to determine what would be the right procedure for you. If there’s a reason for your teeth discolouration such as dental decay, it needs to be addressed first. After all, you may have an underlying dental problem that needs treatment rather than a course of teeth whitening.
Teeth or gum sensitivity and fillings may prevent the use of some products. Your crowns and veneers will not change colour with dental whitening. A discussion with your dentist will reveal if there is an alternative solution for you.
