Tooth whitening is a way of lightening the colour of teeth without physically removing any of the tooth surface. Removal of stains caused by food and drink, can greatly improve the appearance of teeth.
Whitening is not covered by the NHS, so there is a charge for this treatment. It is important that if you do have your teeth whitened, you realise that some people experience slight sensitivity of their teeth afterwards. As with all types of bleaching or colouring, the effects fade over time, so further applications may be necessary. Dietary stains and smoking will reduce the effect of the whitening more rapidly.
Our team offer in house and take home whitening treatments. Ask your dentist if you are suitable for this type of treatment. Even if you are not already a patient with us, you can still ask your own dentist to refer you to our therapist.
