Teeth whitening technology has advanced significantly over the years. It is now a simple and safe option to dramatically improve your smile. You can have brighter and whiter teeth in less than an hour. Advances have helped make teeth whitening a painless and cost effective process to give you an immediate improvement to your smile.
People can have genetic variations with their teeth colour. Over time there are many factors that can contribute to discolouration and staining of teeth. These include all the good things in life such as red wine, coffee and tea. In addition there are many other foods and drinks we consume regularly that have colour added to them. This all builds in the top layer of your teeth causing a gradual discolouration.
The good news is, your teeth can successfully be whitened to a natural and whiter colour through inexpensive and effective whitening treatments. The process is very gentle and safe and has been used successfully for over 30 years.
