What is tooth whitening?
Tooth whitening is an easy, safe way to improve the colour of your teeth. For this procedure, you are provided with customised whitening trays that perfectly fit around your teeth to hold the whitening gel against them. Please check with your dental health professional to see if whitening is right for you, as it will not whiten filling materials or crowns, and can sometimes cause very mild sensitivity.
