TEETH WHITENING (BLEACHING)
What is Dental Bleaching? Dental bleaching is a procedure where by certain bleaching agents are applied to the teeth in order to remove external and internal stains thus leaving the teeth several shades lighter.
Advantages of Dental Bleaching This mode of treatment has solely been developed to lighten teeth in a simple and comfortable manner. It can bring about a dramatic change in almost everyone’s smile by changing a dull smile and yellow teeth to a bright smile with white teeth.
It generally requires no grinding of your teeth.

What is a “Veneer”? A “Veneer” is a thin layer of porcelain made to fit over the front surface of a tooth. Sometimes a natural color ‘Composite’ material is used instead of porcelain.
When would I need a veneer?
Veneers improve the color, shape and position. It can be chosen to give the right color to improve a single discolored or stained tooth or lighten front teeth (Usually the upper ones). A veneer can make a chipped tooth look intact again. The porcelain covers the whole of the front of the tooth with the thicker section replacing the broken part. Veneers can also be used to close small gaps, when orthodontics (braces) are not suitable. If one tooth is slightly out of position, a veneer can sometimes be fitted into line with the others.
