Why is tooth-whitening so popular?
There are many reasons why a person will want to whiten their teeth. It could be that their teeth have become quite heavily stained from years of tea and coffee drinking. This has left them feeling a little self-conscious about their smile and may choose to hide it away because they are ashamed of how stained their teeth have become.
There are lots of people who work within job roles that involve a lot of face-to-face meetings or presentations with customers, clients or members of the public. Having a professional image and a presentable smile can be very important in these people-facing roles.

Do tooth-whitening treatments take long?

Your dentist will recommend a treatment procedure that suits your level of need. They may suggest a course of laser-whitening treatments conducted at their dental surgery, or if making regular appointments will prove difficult for you, they may suggest combining the latest in home whitening treatments where most of your treatment will happen overnight at home.

Should I do a home whitening kit instead?
The simple answer to this is NO!
