You may have noticed your teeth changing colour over time, or that they have picked up stains from your favourite foods or drinks. You may have had darker or stained teeth for as long as you can remember.

Teeth whitening can be a quick and easy way to make your teeth look healthier and more attractive without any alterations to the actual tooth structure. Most people have treatment over a period between 2 – 6 weeks, wearing a custom-made whitening appliance each night loaded with whitening gels.

Did you know?
The ancient Egyptians, around 4,000 years ago, used to whiten their teeth with a whitening paste using ground pumice stone and white vinegar.
The Romans also used to whiten their teeth, except they used, (wait for it), urine. The ammonia within the urine acted as a bleaching agent to make their teeth whiter.
In the 17th Century, people would visit their local barber who would file down their teeth and use an acid to whiten them. Whilst it did make their teeth whiter, it also eroded their tooth enamel which led to tooth decay.
Tooth whitening has come a long way since the Egyptians, and (you’ll be pleased to hear) the Romans and our teeth whitening methods are much more up to date, pain free and guaranteed to give you a lovely set of white teeth.
