Tooth whitening is fantastic for the majority of people. However prior to teeth whitening, a thorough dental examination is the best way to determine what would be the right procedure for you. If there’s a reason for your teeth discolouration such as dental decay, it needs to be addressed first. You may have an underlying dental problem that needs treatment rather than a course of teeth whitening.
Teeth or gum sensitivity and fillings may prevent the use of some products. Your crowns and veneers will not change colour with dental whitening. Have a discussion with us and we will recommend the best solution for you.
While you could be tempted to go to a shopping center booth or a beautician to have your teeth bleached, unfortunately, the beauticians or retail staff are not experts in teeth. We have seen whitening burns to the gums and throats as well as irreversible damage to the teeth and gums. Dr Grace, Dr Lakshmi and Dr Quor and experts in whitening and combined have over 60 years of experience.
