The colour of your teeth changes as part of the natural aging process. Discolouration is typically caused by tobacco, coffee, tea, red wine and some medicines. Bleaching is a professional tooth whitening method which destroys the discolourations. The bleaching agent is applied externally onto the surface of the teeth while protecting the surrounding area in order to lighten the overall colour of the teeth. Our practice offers you gentle but effective bleaching of discoloured teeth. First, we examine the current state of your teeth and then determine the length and intensity of a customised treatment. For most patients, it is possible to carry out a tooth whitening procedure. Exceptions are people with excessive tooth enamel damage. In some circumstances, we recommend a professional dental cleaning before bleaching in order to remove plaque and discolouration from the surface of the teeth. The whitening agent can then work better. Please speak to us if you are interested in bleaching.
