Patient Selection

Prior to any teeth bleaching a consultation must be carried out by our dentists. Teeth discoloured by age, genetics, smoking, tea, coffee stains and simply “yellow teeth” respond best to teeth bleaching.

Bleaching is generally not indicated on children (primary teeth) except in trauma situations.
Bleaching treatment is not recommended on pregnant women or nursing mothers because in general it is good practice to post pone all elective dental procedures during pregnancy.
