Teeth-whitening should only ever be carried out by a dentist or a regulated dental professional on the prescription of a dentist.
The colour of your teeth naturally changes and darkens with age. Coffee, red wine, coloured foods, smoking and poor oral hygiene can also stain and discolour teeth.
Teeth-whitening is a popular dental treatment that can lighten the natural colour of your teeth and brighten your smile.
During your initial consultation, your dentist will advise you on teeth-whitening treatment options and help you decide which is right for you. You must be over 18 and have healthy teeth and gums to benefit from a whitening treatment.
Home whitening consists of the application of a whitening gel inside custom-made trays worn over your teeth for a few hours a day or overnight for a period of a few weeks. You can expect a whiter and brighter smile gradually.
Whitening treatments can last 1-2 years. The effectiveness and duration are dependent on your consumption of coffee, red wine, coloured food and tobacco as well as your oral hygiene regime.
