More and more people are choosing tooth whitening. It is one of, if not the most popular choice of cosmetic dentistry.
We have various tooth whitening systems at Passage House Dental Care and will always suggest which one is most suitable for you. One such system is the much talked about Enlighten.
Tooth whitening is a process where the tooth discolouration is 'whitened' to a lighter shade. It removes the staining agent through chemical means. It is a safe procedure when carried out under professional supervision.
Treatment results usually depend on the severity of the discolouration. Both vital (i.e. live) and non-vital teeth (e.g. tooth with root removed) can be bleached and may take several visits to complete.
Teeth can discolour for various reasons. The dentist will recommend the most ideal method based on your oral condition after a dental examination to establish the cause and nature of your tooth discolouration, as well as provide you with more information on the duration & frequency of treatment. The animation on this page is a general description of tooth whitening. This may not be the one suitable or suggested to you.

To help you save money in the long run, remember:
Talk to your dentist if you are going to have a new porcelain crown or veneer and are interested in tooth whitening. Your dentist will then match it to your new shade of teeth. It is important to talk to your dentist about tooth whitening at the start of any treatment because existing restorations cannot be 'whitened'.
