Teeth Whitening Treatment
Certain food and drink intakes such as coffee and tea are part of our daily diet but causes yellow staining of our teeth. Teeth whitening / teeth bleaching is a simple, conservative and cost effective way to brighten up your smile.
Many factors, including dietary habits (drinking coffee, tea, soda and red wine) and certain medications, affect the whiteness of your smile. Teeth whitening is an affordable and effective way to combat common causes of tooth discolouration, while boosting your self-confidence and improving your appearance. We offer an internationally renowned product known as BriteSmile to our teeth whitening patients.
Take Home Whitening Gels are only available from your dentist who will supervise your treatment from initial consultation through to completion. The sticky, viscous gel won’t migrate to gums, and most formulations include Potassium Fluoride (PF), which helps to decrease sensitivity.
