With age teeth naturally darken (internal staining). Also, long-term exposure to staining agents such as red wine and coffee can cause tooth discolouration (external staining). We provide individualized regiments of whitening including bleaching trays that are customized to each patient to provide an optimal tooth surface to bleach ratio while also protecting the gum tissues. Products purchased over-the-counter, though effective at whitening the teeth, do little to protect the gum tissues from the whitening agents (carbamide peroxide) which can be harmful to soft tissues. For this reason, we design our bleaching trays to keep the fluid away from any tissues that may be affected. The trays are specific for each patient and are re-usable.
