Tooth whitening is a simple, safe and effective procedure to improve the appearance of your teeth and give you a brighter smile in just a few weeks, and is now one of the most popular dental cosmetic treatments. Teeth darken naturally with age, but can also discolour with foods and drinks such as coffee, tea, red wine and juices, and smoking. Certain long-term antibiotics such as tetracycline can also cause the teeth to darken.
At Slateford Dental Care, after an initial free whitening consultation appointment to check your mouth is healthy and that you are suitable, we can professionally whiten your teeth using either Philips Zoom Power Whitening, or Enlighten Whitening. Both methods are similar, combining whitening at home using carbamide peroxide gel and specially made whitening trays and an in-surgery whitening procedure.
