With the development of aesthetical dentistry, an increasing demand for shining, white teeth is also present. Tooth whitening is a fundamental technique of aesthetical dentistry.
Multiple factors contribute to the discoloration of teeth, including:
- Coffee, tea
- Various foods, food colourings,
- Previous root treatment
- discoloration of old fillings
Whitening treatments can either be performed in the clinic or at patient's home.
