Teeth whitening is process of whitening teeth by use of bleaching agents, commonly hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide.
Teeth whitening results can vary and often has some temporary side effects, such as postoperative sensitivity, therefore teeth whitening should only be carried out by a dental practitioner.
Stains on teeth can be classified into External stains (outside surface of teeth) or Intrinsic stains (stains within inner layer of teeth).
Teeth whitening is not suitable for everyone as results can vary from person to person, depending on age, diet, lifestyle factors such as smoking, etc. Your dentist will discuss with you expected results and type of whitening suitable.
