If you would like to lighten the shade of your teeth, then professional teeth whitening is a safe and recommended option for you to consider.
Home teeth whitening kits lighten the teeth gradually – the whitening trays are typically worn overnight. With all whitening treatments, individual results will vary and are based on your initial tooth colour and the nature of your tooth staining.
The Dentist is excited to be a regional centre of excellence for ‘Enlighten Whitening’. Enlighten whitening concept involves a more advanced customised whitening tray, along with a treatment protocol that will ‘money back guarantee’ you a great result no matter the difficulty of the case.
What Causes Teeth To Become Discoloured?
There are many causes for discoloured teeth and most of them have to do with diet and lifestyle. Smoking, red wine and coffee are considered the main culprits, but consuming food and beverages with a lot of food colouring will also cause your teeth to become discoloured. Other factors contributing to discoloured teeth can be poor dental hygiene, tooth and gum diseases and certain medications. That is why you should talk to your practitioner at The Dentist. Treating the problem is one thing, but it’s important to know why teeth become discoloured in the first place, so you can take some preventative measures.

Do I Need To Make Frequent Visits To See My Dentist?
Your first visit to the dentist for a tooth whitening treatment involve the dentist assessing the level of discolouration. You will then be fitted with a custom whitening tray to take home with you.

By this time, you should have achieved your desired whitening result.
