Teeth whitening: What you need to know

What is teeth whitening?

Teeth whitening is a procedure that, as its name suggests, makes your teeth appear whiter.

It involves the application of whitening agents to the teeth’s surface. This removes internal stains and lightens the colour of your teeth. There are two types of teeth whitening:

In-chair whitening: This involves us applying strong whitening agents to your teeth in the dental clinic – for quick results.
Take-home whitening: You’ll take home custom trays and apply whitening agents to your teeth in the comfort of your own home.

Teeth whitening may last for months or even years, depending on your lifestyle.

Is teeth whitening
right for me?

Most of the time, yes!
For cosmetic enhancements, teeth whitening is an excellent first port of call.

All teeth experience discolouration over time. Certain foods and drinks, including red wine, coffee and tea, can also leave your teeth looking stained and off-colour.

The good news is that teeth whitening can improve most of these stains. Although some, such as staining from tetracycline (a type of antibiotics), may require other treatments.

Best of all, teeth whitening is non-invasive. That means your natural teeth won’t be damaged at all.
