Tooth colour varies from person to person and is also impacted by the things we consume daily such as coffee, red wine and, of course, smoking.
Teeth whitening can be used to gently breakdown stains during oxidation of the enamel and can brighten the shade of your natural teeth by several shades. Many clients undergo a whitening treatment prior to having restorative treatment so that we can match the shade of the new restorations with the whiter shade of their teeth. Some clients simply wish to have a fresher, brighter and more youthful smile.
