This is the process of removing stains and discolouration from teeth through a bleaching process to make them look “whiter”?

For heavily stained teeth, a scale and polish from a dental hygienist can significantly improve their appearance and make them look “whiter”.

Professional home whitening kits provide more lasting results over a longer time scale than in-surgery or ‘laser’ whitening offered in some other establishments.

Be aware that many people are not suitable for teeth whitening. The teeth whitening process does not change the colour of crowns, veneers or fillings so you may need to change these to match the colour of your whitened teeth.

The change in colour varies from individual to individual. Some people respond very well to teeth whitening and have dramatically whiter teeth as a result, whereas others may notice very little difference at all. People with heavily stained yellow teeth tend to have more dramatic results than those with slightly discoloured teeth. Your dentist will be able to advise you.
