About teeth whitening
Whitening lightens the existing shade of your teeth by removing the stains caused by food, alcohol, smoking, coffee and other dietary habits. If you have severe discoloration or stains (due for example to previous medication during tooth formation), veneers or bonding could be a better solution to change the shade of your teeth.
During your consultation, Dr. Germain will discuss with her patients to find out what they consider being their ideal smile, tooth colour, tooth shape so that she can advise on different treatment options.
