What is teeth whitening?

Teeth whitening involves bleaching your teeth to make them lighter. Teeth whitening can lighten your existing tooth colour by several shades.
{Please note it can not make your teeth brilliant white.}

Teeth whitening is a form of dentistry and should only be performed by a dentist or another regulated dental professional, such as a dental hygienist on the prescription of a dentist.

What happens during teeth whitening?

The dentist will take an impression of your teeth to make a mouthguard and will instruct you how to use it with a bleaching gel. Then, using your mouthguard at home, you regularly apply the gel for a specified period of time over two to four weeks.

Is teeth whitening permanent?

No, teeth whitening isn’t permanent. It can last from a few months to up to three years, but this varies from person to person. Generally, the whitening effect won’t last as long if you smoke or drink red wine, tea or coffee, which can all stain your teeth.

Will teeth whitening work on false teeth?

No. Teeth whitening won’t work on dentures, crowns, fillings or veneers.
