Tooth whitening uses either hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide to remove stains and discolouration that may have arisen as a result of food staining, stains from smoking or from drinking red wine, tea or coffee. The process is very safe and can be applied to all natural teeth.
Tooth whitening can help restore a natural, brighter smile.
