Teeth Whitening in a nutshell
Whiter, brighter teeth
Teeth whitening is one of the most efficient ways of improving the colour of your teeth. Clinical studies have proven that custom-made home whitening kits are the most safe, effective long term method to whiten your teeth.
At Pond Square Dental we provide home whitening kits. They are really simple and easy to use and allow you to both control the degree you whiten your teeth, and to keep your teeth white over a long period of time, often many years.
Treatment Options for Teeth Whitening
Sometimes a tooth can change colour, either suddenly or over time, usually after having a knock, a root canal or when needing a root canal. This type of discolouration can be addressed fairly simply with an internal tooth whitening.

Not only is the home whitening the best way to whiten your teeth, but you can also top up the whitening and control the colour of your teeth as you wish over many years.

Over time, our teeth pick up superficial stains from our food and drink . The good news is that we can remove the majority of this staining - simply visit one of our hygienists. Sometime stains are more stubborn or are 'part' of the tooth.
