A simple way to improve your smile
A simple way to improve your smile is by having your teeth whitened. This cosmetic procedure lightens the colour of your teeth by utilising bleaching agents. It must be performed by a regulated dental professional.
How Tooth Whitening Works
Teeth can become stained and discoloured as a result of:
- Food and drinks consumed eg. tea, coffee, red wine and curries
- The ageing process
Teeth whitening is a great way for brightening your natural teeth if they are discoloured, yellow or dark. Fillings, crowns, veneers and other tooth coloured restorations will not whiten with teeth whitening procedures and may need replacing following a teeth whitening procedure in order to maintain a uniform colour of all of your teeth.
- Being clear and transparent, these aligners are very discreet and therefore are ideal for adults who want to maintain a professional image as well as adolescents and teenagers who do not want to wear traditional braces.
- It is much easier to maintain a high level of oral hygiene as once removed, you will be dealing only with your own teeth and no metal brackets or wires will be in the way, making it much easier for you to clean your teeth.
