Teeth whitening lightens the colour of teeth, either a select few or an entire arch.
Whitening can be applied to the outside of the teeth, or to the inside of them. The latter is performed by your dentist after a tooth has been root canal filled and has become discoloured. The vast majority of the whitening we do here is in the form of an external gumshield that is custom made for your mouth. This method is is recognised as the most effective and comfortable of the available bleaching techniques. It is the accepted method used at the Edinburgh Dental Institute and at leading dental teaching hospitals.
