If your teeth have lost their pearly white healthy appearance you are not alone. Aging, diet, injuries along with many other factors cause teeth to dull and yellow. Teeth whitening has become a popular cosmetic dental procedure. Teeth whitening is process that restores stained or discoloured teeth to a healthy, natural colour, and is very safe under the supervision of a dental professional.
The results from teeth whitening can last for as long as a year and with touch-ups treatments (at home) every few months results can last even longer. "Touch-ups" are especially useful for patients that drink beverages that are prone to stain teeth, such as coffee, tea and red wine. Some patients may experience heightened tooth sensitivity or mild tooth or gum sensitivity during treatment, but these symptoms are only temporary and disappear within a few days after the treatment is finished.
