Many of our patients want their teeth to be lighter than they have become, through staining or discolouration with age. Tooth whitening is a good way to do this without altering the shape and structure of the teeth. We offer the treatment, which can lighten teeth by up to 8 shades in an hour. The gel is accurately placed onto the teeth by the dentist and then activated with light. Most teeth can reach the desired colour in two to three applications, which takes around an hour to carry out.Tooth whitening is also a popular way to brighten a smile that may be naturally dark or yellow. Tooth whitening is a simple treatment and yet can create a lighter-looking, beautiful smile.
