Tooth Whitening 

Tooth whitening is a way of lightening the natural colour of teeth using bleaching methods. Tooth colour varies among people, however as you get older, your teeth can become darker naturally. This process is often increased by drinking tea, coffee, red wine or other food and drink with strong colourings. Another major cause is smoking, which can make your teeth appear yellowed. Tooth decay, fillings and tartar build-up can also contribute to discolouration.

Some types of staining can be caused by diseases or medicines. For example, if a type of antibiotic called tetracycline is given to children whose teeth are still developing, their adult teeth may form with a yellow or green tinge.

Please browse through the pages below which will explain the bleaching methods we provide. We would be happy to advise the most effective for you, however it's important to remember that if you have tooth-coloured fillings or crowns/veneers these won't bleach, and if you bleach your teeth, these may no longer match your natural teeth.
