As the name suggests, this treatment is all about lightening stained or discoloured teeth.
You can buy many over-the-counter products for teeth whitening, however your dentist is best qualified to determine if you are a good candidate for teeth whitening. They can diagnose the reason for the discolouration and its type, and can then advise the most efficient method of whitening in the safest way. You may be tempted to go to a shopping centre booth or a beautician to get your teeth whitened, but neither are staffed by suitably qualified personnel. Incorrect use of bleaching agents may cause irreversible damage to your teeth and gums. Keep in mind is that crowns, veneers and fillings don’t change colour when you have your teeth whitened.
