Teeth whitening is a specific treatment for those with stained or discoloured teeth. It is the process of improving the colour of your teeth.
Teeth can become stained or discoloured for multiple reasons. The most common cause is dietary habits; your teeth will be discoloured if over time you drink large amounts of caffeine, sugary drinks, red wine or tea, or if you smoke or take certain medicines.
The effectiveness of treatment varies. Your Carina Gardens dentist will examine your teeth to determine if teeth whitening will be a suitable and effective option for you.
Your dentist will prepare a take-home whitening kit of clear custom trays and whitening gel. This method may take longer to achieve ultimate results and is dependent on consistent use, however it is less invasive than the other options, due to lower concentrations of bleaching agents.
