Everyday life takes its toll on our teeth. Drinking too much tea or coffee, smoking or even eating strongly coloured foods can stain and discolour them.
By applying a bleaching agent to the teeth, dentists can whiten the teeth, giving you a sparkly, bright smile. This procedure is simple, harmless and practically painless.
The most common way a dentist will whiten or bleach your teeth is using a special tray created specifically for you and some gel. You will place the gel in the tray and wear it for two hours daily or overnight for a period of approximately two weeks.
It is important to whiten your teeth under your dentist’s supervision. Don’t be tempted to buy kits over the counter or on the Internet. Not only are they not made to fit your mouth exactly; it may be that bleaching isn’t suitable for you, especially if you have gum disease or crowns.
Tooth whitening is a very safe and conservative procedure. We would always explore this option before discussing the possibilities of crowns or veneers.
