A healthy, white smile can be a valuable asset. Teeth can become stained due to the foods and drinks we consume, such as coffee or red wine. Teeth also become darker as we age. Bleaching offers a safe and effective way to give you a beautiful, white smile.
For most patients, we recommend bleaching your teeth at-home with a custom made bleaching tray and bleach kit. Bleaching trays can be worn at night or during the day depending on your preference. Most patients achieve a satisfactory level of whitening within 2 weeks; since the bleaching is done at home, you have control over the final result.
Trauma to a tooth or old root canal fillings can also cause a single tooth to become dark. In-office bleaching procedures can be done to intensively bleach a single tooth, improving the colour uniformity of your teeth.
