Tooth Whitening

Everyday life takes its toll on our teeth. Drinking too much tea or coffee, smoking or even eating highly coloured foods can stain and discolour them. There are toothpastes available which will help remove these stains, but they can't change the actual colour of the tooth underneath. Dentists can change this by applying a whitening agent to the teeth to give a much brighter smile. This treatment may not be suitable for patients who have gum disease. Crowns or tooth coloured fillings will not be whitened by this method and may need to be replaced. Models of the teeth are taken and used to make trays to hold the whitening gel against the teeth
