Tooth whitening (or bleaching) is the restoring of a natural tooth to beyond its natural colour, removing stains and making it appear whiter and brighter. It is one of the most common dental procedures as it greatly improves the look of your teeth.
It is important to know that tooth whitening products do not whiten artificial crowns, caps, veneers, fillings or other restorations. They will only work on natural tooth structure.
At Confident Healthcare we offer take-home whitening kits to help you get the best result possible.
A lot of people are unaware of the unpleasant side effects such as sensitivity, sharp pain inside teeth, chemical burns, alteration of enamel surface and uneven coloured teeth that can be caused by whitening and advise that it is best to have your teeth accessed by a dentist before undertaking any tooth whitening procedure as not everyone is a candidate for tooth whitening.
When whitening your teeth your results are dependent on a few things such as age and degree of discolouration. To avoid disappointment, discuss your expectations with your dentist at Confident Healthcare to ensure you are properly aware of the shade of whitening you may achieve.
