Tooth Whitening is a process where the tooth discoloration is bleached to a lighter shade. It removes the staining agent through chemical means. It is a safe procedure when carried out under professional supervision. Treatment results usually depend on the severity of the discolouration.
It is not effective on dental restorations such as amalgam fillings, metal or porcelain crowns.
Teeth can discolour for various reasons. It may be due to diet and lifstyle – smoking, drinking coffee, tea or red wine.
The dentist will assess your teeth as to suitability in an in-office examination as well as providing you with more information on the various types of whitening procedures available.

This is a specialist whitening procedure that is only offered in surgery by your dentist. It is used for a single tooth that may have discoloured after root canal treatment. Using the same hole created to be able to root canal treat the tooth (therefore no extra tooth is removed) the whitening agent is placed into the tooth and sealed in place with a temporary filling. This process may need to be repeated several times until the tooth is at a matching shade to the surrounding teeth. Once satisfied with the shade, the tooth is filled back up with a filling to match the new colour of the tooth.
The General Dental Council (GDC) has identified that tooth whitening is part of the practice of dentistry. Dentistry must only be carried out by dental professionals, who are registered with the GDC.
