Tooth whitening is a very popular, safe and effective method of brightening your teeth, and is one of the simplest ways to improve and enhance your smile. It’s not surprising that our patients tell us that after they have undergone the procedure, the whiter shade makes them feel more youthful, radiant and confident.
At Glenhaven dental care the tooth whitening procedure is performed by a trained professional and a whitening programme is tailored to suit each individual to reach your desired result.
Whitening can be carried out in the comfort of your home or in the dental surgery. A consultation is highly recommended to discuss your options and assess which technique would be most suitable and appropriate for you.
