Naturally, as we age, our teeth gradually get darker though they can also darken if the root is damaged or diseased and if the ‘nerve’ inside the tooth has died. Over time, even red wine can cause your teeth to discolour. It is necessary to find the cause of the discolouration before bleaching can be recommended, and this is done via a careful and thorough assessment.
If a qualified dentist delivers the effective treatment, whitening your teeth by bleaching is a safe procedure. Based on our professional knowledge of oral health, we will be able to incorporate teeth whitening into your overall treatment plan. Bleaching will not remove any surface of your teeth or change their shape and can be a healthy alternative to veneers, as the tooth’s original structure won’t be permanently altered.
