White and healthy teeth make people more self-confident, while attractive shining smile is pleasant to others.
Colour of enamel may change due to various reasons, e.g., food or drink (coffee, tea, tobacco and the like), various dental traumas, some medicines, heredity, old age, etc. Teeth whitening can be a very effective procedure to fight such factors.
Several teeth whitening methods are available. Our dentists will help you to choose the most appropriate one.
Tooth whitening can be a highly effective way of lightening the natural colour of your teeth without removing any of the tooth surface. It cannot make a complete colour change; but it may lighten the existing shade. There is now laser whitening or ‘power whitening’. During this procedure a rubber dam is put over your teeth to protect the gums, and a bleaching product is painted onto your teeth. Then a light or laser is shone on the teeth to activate the chemical. The light speeds up the chemical reaction of the whitening product and the colour change can be achieved more quickly using this procedure. Laser whitening is said to make teeth up to five or six shades lighter.
