Teeth are stained by the foods and drinks we consume. Smoking further stains teeth and the natural bright, white shade becomes darkened.
Teeth whitening is a simple, non-invasive cosmetic dental treatment that can change the color of your natural tooth enamel and enhance the beauty of your smile.
Teeth whitening is a successful and simple method of lightening the colour of your teeth. The degree of whiteness achieved will vary from patient to patient and with the type of bleaching process chosen.
More than 100,000 people get teeth whitening treatment in the UK every year.
There are a number of ways to whiten teeth. You’ve probably seen tons of over-the-counter whitening products at your local medical store, from whitening toothpastes to rinses to whitening strips and other types of DIY at-home treatments.
Teeth whitening carried out in beauty salons by untrained staff or staff without dental qualifications puts your oral health at risk and is also illegal.
The single most effective and safe way to whiten teeth is with a professional teeth whitening session in your dentist’s practice.
