For the most part, teeth whitening is safe—as long as it’s done correctly. What most people don’t realize before having their teeth whitened is this: because you’re dealing with live tissue (unlike hair or nails), teeth whitening can cause damage, pain, and sensitivity. The safest way to use a whitening agent like peroxide is to have a custom tray created by your dentist, then use gel refills to freshen your tooth color every 24-48 months. I’ll cover these in detail below, but there are several methods of teeth whitening I do not recommend because of safety concerns.
Teeth veneers are thin ceramic ‘shells’ placed over your existing teeth and are proven to vastly improve the appearance of your smile. This is a popular treatment choice for many people wanting a smile makeover and is the treatment of choice in many celebrity smile makeovers. Here at the Smile Practice all our porcelain veneers are hand-crafted by a ceramic technician to ensure that you the unique smile of your dreams. The colour, shape and character of every tooth will be discussed with you at your consultation to ensure the end result is just how you want it. If you are considering teeth veneers or want to discuss if they are suitable for you, book your initial consultation at our Didcot or Oxford clinic.

Some common foods can discolor teeth. Here’s an easy way to tell if a food might be at fault: Anything that can stain a white cotton T-shirt can stain teeth, say dentists.
