As we get older our teeth tend to become darker, tooth whitening involves bleaching your teeth to reverse this process and make them a lighter colour.

Bleaching improves the appearance of your teeth without harming the tooth and is a better option than a veneer or crown if you simply wish to lighten the colour of healthy teeth.  Standard tooth-whitening involves several visits to the dentist plus sessions at home wearing a mouth guard containing bleaching gel.  Please ask your dentist for details.
