Tooth bleaching is a cosmetic process by which teeth are whitened using a peroxide-based gel. Teeth can become stained or darkened for many reasons, including aging, tobacco use, or consumption of certain foods and drinks. Unlike surface whiteners, which only remove stains on the surface of the teeth, bleaching can change the colour of the teeth themselves.

There are many factors that determine whether or not bleaching is a suitable treatment, including the type and origin of discoloration and stains, and what kind of previous dental work has been done. Your dentist can offer advice on whether bleaching is an appropriate procedure for you.

For more information about the whitening procedures and products offered at Highland Dental Clinic, please talk to your dentist or clinic staff.
