Dr Neil Evans talks teeth whitening!
One of the main things I get asked about when I mention I’m a dentist, is teeth whitening. We all see our favourite Hollywood actors with striking white smiles and then feel the urge to improve our own smiles just a little.
Over time our teeth can become discoloured due to a range of factors such as ageing, tea, coffee, red wine, some medications and smoking. Teeth whitening is an easy way to transform aged and discoloured teeth into a brighter, healthier looking smile.
