Tooth Whitening

What Is It?

Years of staining from virtually everything we eat; drink and inhale can discolour our teeth. Staining occurs on the surface of our teeth, caused by tea, coffee, red wine, and tobacco. Staining can also occur within the tooth structure due to dental disease.

This discolouration can be erased in a short space of time by tooth whitening using

  • Opalescence bespoke tray and gel system (Home Whitening)
