In most cases, the natural colour of teeth is within a range of light greyish-yellow shades. Teeth naturally darken with age and their appearance can be affected by the accumulation of surface stains acquired from the use of tobacco products and the consumption of certain foods or drinks.
In addition, the perception of the colour of teeth is affected by skin tone and make-up. Independent of the real colour of their teeth, people with darker skin or who use dark make-up will look like they have brighter teeth.
Tooth Whitening is a non-invasive procedure that brightens your teeth. Results for whitening are variable depending on tooth structure. On average you can get shades 2-3 times brighter. It is recommended for patients at any age that have natural teeth. The result of a whitening treatment lasts 2-5 years depending on your diet habits.
