Is it safe to whiten your teeth?
Tooth whitening has been used in dentistry for many years and no serious adverse affects have been reported. Tooth Whitening does not soften the enamel or tooth structure nor does it affect the quality of existing restorations.
How much lighter will my teeth be?
We generally find an improvement of 0.5 to 2 shades immediately. This will generally improve over the 3 weeks following the procedure. Individual results vary and will depend on your initial tooth colour, type of stain, oral hygiene habits and diet.
How long does Tooth Whitening last for?
Typically, the Tooth Whitening performed in the dental chair may last for 12-24 months. However, with regular use of the home bleaching kit, results can last for much longer. Other factors such as smoking, poor oral hygiene and diet can affect the longevity of the results.
What is tooth whitening?
Tooth whitening can be a very effective way of lightening the natural colour of your teeth without removing any of the tooth surface. It cannot make a complete colour change, but it may lighten the existing shade.
