If you are unhappy with the colour of your teeth and would like them to be brighter, tooth whitening (or dental bleaching) is the ideal way to improve them. Tooth whitening is a safe and reputable treatment when it is carried out by dental professionals. It can improve the appearance of teeth so much that more extensive treatment can be avoided, perhaps with bonding to minor chips or misshaped teeth. We also recommend whitening before veneer or crown treatment as it makes the end result better.
We offer two different types of tooth whitening:
Home whitening – for this treatment we first check the colour of your teeth to begin with and take a photo for a record. Next we make you some custom made thin trays (like extra thin gum-shields) which fit very accurately over your teeth. These are worn overnight or for 2-3 hours in the evening.
