What Results Can I Expect From Tooth Whitening?

Cosmetic tooth whitening can remove stains, enhance the natural whiteness of your teeth and even lighten the shade of white your teeth were originally.

The colour of teeth is normally measured using a shade-guide of 16 tones of white. Most people can expect their teeth to appear between three and eight shades lighter after tooth whitening.

The best teeth whitening results will be achieved by professional tooth whitening.
